Today, we’re announcing the availability of 6 additional languages that you can use in your Dialogflow agents:

  • Hindi (hi)

  • Thai (th)

  • Indonesian (id)

  • Swedish (sv)

  • Danish (da)

  • Norwegian (no)

All of these languages come with prebuilt agents for Small Talk, Support, Translate and Weather. They are fully supported by Actions on Google and can be used to build apps for the Google Assistant.

This brings our total number of supported root languages to 21, along with 9 locales. Here’s all the supported languages - learn how to build multilingual agents and give it a try in the Dialogflow console.

And if you missed the announcement from last week, the Assistant will be available in 30 languages by the end of the year. Let us know what language you’re most looking forward to! Share your feedback in our new developer community or post your technical questions on our help forum.

Announcing our Dialogflow Developer Community on Google+

January 30, 2018

We may only be a month into 2018, but one thing’s for sure: this is going to be a huge year for conversational technology.

Between platforms like the Google Assistant and a whole galaxy of instant messaging platforms, there’s no end of opportunities for developers to design and build amazing conversational experiences.

Our goal at Dialogflow is to provide the tools, skills, and support to help you do incredible things with this new medium. We have some big things planned this year, and here’s the first of them:

Join our official community

We’d love this to be a hub for learnings, feedback, and community as you dive deeper into exploring and building conversational technology. (Our help forum is still the best place to go for support-related questions.)

Join the official Dialogflow developer community!

We’re hanging out and looking forward to meeting you. Head on over to the new developer community and introduce yourself :)

Introducing two beta releases: Dialogflow API V2 and new Enterprise Edition

November 16, 2017

When we joined Google, our vision was to use Google’s infrastructure and resources to accelerate improvements to our platform, making the best technologies in AI and machine learning available to our developer community.

Today, we’re launching two new important updates– in beta–that bring us even closer to that day-one vision:

Dialogflow API V2 BETA

Dialogflow API V2 BETA is the next iteration of our developer API adding new features and capabilities. API V2’s updates include:

  • Google Cloud Speech integration, allowing developers to send audio directly to Dialogflow for speech recognition and natural language understanding
  • Importing, exporting and restoring agents through API calls, for improved integration with developers’ change management processes
  • Support for gRPC, an RPC framework offering improved performance, scalability and integration

We will continue support for our existing API V1, while any future features and improvements will be added to API V2. If you wish to try out the new API V2 BETA, please review our FAQ page and follow these instructions.

Dialogflow Enterprise Edition BETA

Many of our clients have asked for enterprise support, and today we’re excited to be launching Dialogflow Enterprise Edition BETA. Dialogflow Enterprise Edition BETA combines our new API V2 with Google Cloud Platform’s enterprise-grade compliance and customer support. Head over to the Google Cloud Platform to learn more.

What do today’s announcements mean for me?

In short, no action is necessary for your existing agents – they will continue working as before. We recommend that most users continue development with API V1 unless they would like to evaluate API V2 BETA or require features only available in API V2 BETA. Using Dialogflow Enterprise Edition BETA requires the use of API V2 BETA.

As we improve API V2 tooling in the coming months, we’ll provide additional resources for migrating your existing agents from V1 to V2.

If you have more questions about trying API V2, don’t forget to check out our FAQ page.

7 new prebuilt agents to simplify your development process

November 1, 2017

Back in March 2017, we launched 33 prebuilt agents to help you simplify your agent development process. Prebuilt agents are templatized agents our team has built for a variety of use cases and verticals that you can download to your account and fully customize. Today, we’re releasing 7 more prebuilt agents in English to make development easier and faster:

New use cases
  • Jokes
  • Events Search
  • Dining Out
  • Local Services
  • Reminders
New verticals
  • Coffee Shop
  • Tourism

Let’s take a look at some examples of how each of them can be used:

Coffee Shop

User: I'd like a coffee to go.
User: I'm hungry.
User: I would like to order a gift card with $50 on it.


User: Make me laugh.
User: Tell me a witty joke.
User: Another one.

Events Search

User: Art exhibitions in Japan?
User: Where to go for a date?
User: How can I kill time nearby?

Dining Out

User: Find a cheap and top rated place to eat in NYC.
User: Show only open ones.
User: How about Queens?

Local Services

User: I'm looking for a beauty salon with Wi-Fi.
User: How about spa?
User: Filter for closest.


User: Where should I stay for 5 nights in Barcelona?
User: How about Madrid?
User: Show me the best sights in Rome that have parking and good reviews.


User: Set a reminder for 9am tomorrow: Yoga.
User: For Monday also.
User: Reschedule my 11am reminder to 8am.

Head over to your developer console and give these a try! And if you need support, find us over on StackOverflow or contact us here.

Introducing Dialogflow, the new name for API.AI

October 10, 2017

When we started API.AI, our goal was to provide developers like you with an API to add natural language processing capabilities to your applications, services and devices. We’ve worked hard towards that goal and accomplished a lot partnering with all of you. But as we’ve taken a look at our work over the past year and where we’re heading, from new features like our Analytics tool to the 33 prebuilt agents, we realized that we were doing so much more than just providing an API. So with that, we’d like to introduce Dialogflow – the new name for API.AI.


Our new name doesn’t change the work we’re doing with you or our mission. Our mission continues to be that Dialogflow is your end-to-end platform for building great conversational experiences and our team will help you share what you’ve built with millions of users. In fact, here are 2 new features we’ve just launched to help you build those great experiences:

  1. In-line code editor: you can now write fulfillment logic, test, and implement a functional webhook directly in the console.
  2. Multi-lingual agent support: building for multiple languages is now easier than ever. You can now add additional languages and locales to your new or existing agent.

Thanks for being a part of API.AI – we can’t wait to see what we do together with Dialogflow. Head over to your developer console and give these new features a try. And, as always, contact us if you have any questions.
