Fandango to launch voice-activated service
EmptyComcast’s Fandango said Wednesday it partnered with Microsoft subsidiary Tellme for a voice-activated movie information service for mobile phones.
Using GPS technology, consumers will be able to speak the name of a movie and their local theater while quickly receiving back relevant showtimes.
From there, purchasing tickets and getting driving directions can be done from the phone screen.
The deal calls for a similar voice service in GPS enabled cars within the year.
