Developers Can Write Apps For The Assistant On Google Home
Code for Google assistant!
What has Google introduced now?
Google has announced that developers now can bring their applications and services to the Google Assistant, with the help of “conversation actions” on Google Home. This would allow developers to create conversations with users under the help of Assistant. They can start any conversation with very simple phrase such as “Ok Google, talk to Liza.”
What are features of it?
The assistant runs on the Pixel phones and in the Allo chat app. In future, Google aims to actions various other “Assistant surfaces” but it’s unsure when that will happen exactly. In order to aid developers who are interested to create these new Conversation Actions, Google has partnered up with different companies such as GupShup, DashBot and VoiceLabs, Assist, Notify.IO, Witlingo and Spoken Layer. It already has enabled few partners to allow their apps on Google Home. It will soon roll out by next week.
Google’s next release
This will allot users to use new actions with just a simple command (and without having to first enables a skill, like on Alexa). The company’s platform is very helpful and easy way for developers to get their voice-enabled services to users. Although, it depends on company on which apps will be enabled on devices. Google says it will also enable deeper integrations services across verticals, support purchases and bookings in their next releases but there aren’t many details about it as of now.
