The Google search was even more interesting for those who enjoy watching movies in the cinema. A new free service was released last Friday (21) for web and mobile search engines, in addition to the Android app. The update brought a tool capable of filtering films in theaters based on genre, location of the room, date and time of the session and even an evaluation of the criticism. The idea is to facilitate the customer's experience and encourage access to culture.
The Search Giant has also incorporated a ticket purchase system, which allows you to select seats and pay for tickets in advance. The proposal will facilitate the comparison of films showing in the city and reduce the time in choosing which one to watch. See, in the following tutorial, how to use the Google tool on your smartphone and PC. The procedure can be done on Windows, macOS and Linux.
