We all have heard about Google assistant. Google Assistant is an artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistant developed by Google. Google assistant is used widely around the world compared to other virtual assistants like Siri, Alexa, etc. Have you ever thought that you could develop an app in google assistant even without a single line of code.

I came to know about this when I reached this site, Google Developers Site. It gives you an introduction to the Google Assistant Community developer program and the perks that we could achieve. Don’t you think it's cool to have an app/action developed by us, which is accessible across all devices with google assistant?

Why you should build actions?

The reason is simple technology is changing rapidly and the current trend is voice. Let’s take an example, we can consider the evolution of mobile phones. Initially, we had keypad phones and then it changed to smartphones where we communicated using touch and now the era is of sound. Now we can make a phone call, send a message send an email, etc. using our voice.

Why Google Assistant?

Of the above-mentioned virtual assistants, Google assistant has the maximum reach in terms number of devices and languages. We can build actions that are available across different devices such as android phones, android TV, Google home, etc.

Apart from the above, your action would be available across 252 countries. Now you will be excited to build your actions right.

I will be sharing the ways to build your first action in my upcoming articles. If you are interested to learn more about this you can visit Google Codelabs. Okay let me show you some of my actions, so open your Google assistant and say this
