‘Actions on Google’ - Opening up Google Assistant for third-party Developers

Google introduced some of the most innovative and cool products in its much-anticipated launch event in San Francisco. Google knows the importance of the software which are playing major roles inside these devices. The company has laid immense importance on the core of all of its devices i.e. Assistant. Google Assistant is the new super-smart virtual helper which is soon going to empower almost all Google products. The search giant has entered into the big league of voice assistants competing with Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri. Google has decided to open the access of its voice assistant to third party developers. Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri has grown rapidly over the years and Google also doesn’t want to be left behind. To mark its presence Google has started its own programme with the name “Actions on Google”. Third-party developers are now allowed to build circumstantial actions for Google Assistant and reach out to soon-to-be-added users. Two types of actions i.e. Direct and Conversation are provided to the third-party developers. The direct action allows the integration with the Google Assistant for straightforward requests. Whereas Conversation action connects developers with Google Assistant users to fulfill “back and forth” interaction. From this December, third party developers will be allowed to work with Google Assistant and ultimately launch their voice-enabled apps. This “Google on Actions” will make Google Assistant to integrate and work with third-party hardware. Making it an open system for all the third-party developers will help them to utilize the Assistant for home-brewed devices to large scale consumer electronics. For updates, interested parties can sign up for the service and updates.
