Ticketmaster launches voice-activated ticket sales via Samsung Bixby

Wednesday 29 August 2018 | 09:17 CET | News
Ticketmaster announced a partnership with Samsung's virtual assistant Bixby to enable fans to discover and buy tickets to live events using voice technology. The service has already been activated on Samsung Galaxy Note9 handsets, with fans able to search for events by artists or teams, and location or event dates via phrases such as "Hi Bixby, find concert tickets in Los Angeles" or "Hi Bixby, what sporting events are happening in New York this weekend?". Bixby will return results to their device, allowing fans to confirm their order details and finalise their purchase.
