Build Conversation Actions for Google Assistant users

December 8, 2016

Reach Google Assistant users on Google Home and soon, other Google Assistant surfaces, with our new Actions on Google integration

Starting today, you can build rich, conversational experiences for Google Assistant users on Google Home and deploy them as Conversation Actions in just a few easy steps with API.AI.

API.AI makes it possible for your service to receive and respond to user queries in natural language. So whether you aim to answer questions or help users to be more productive, API.AI can help you build engaging experiences.

To build a Conversation Action with API.AI, start by defining the user requests or intents that your service will handle. Then design the conversational flow. If you’re new to API.AI and want to develop Conversation Actions, we’ve prepared some handy docs and tutorials.

Once you’ve built your Conversational Action (or if you already have a service developed with API.AI), you can easily submit your integration for the Google Assistant in the Integrations tab.

After you launch, you can update your Conversation Action in real-time based on user interactions, and it will continue to get smarter based on API.AI’s machine learning capabilities.

This is just the beginning – in the future Actions on Google will let you reach Google Assistant users beyond Google Home, including Pixel phones and Google Allo.

With the addition of Actions on Google, API.AI can now support your conversational experience development efforts across 10+ platforms. And with our recently updated free Standard tier and advanced natural language understanding technology, you can build and scale engaging experiences for everyone.

Get a jump start on building conversational experiences using API.AI for Actions on Google and reach Google Home users now.

Happy coding, API.AI team
