Google Assistant: Customizing Templates
Google Assistant is a personal voice assistant that offers a host of actions and integrations. From sending texts and setting reminders, to ordering coffee and playing music, the 1 million+ actions available suit a wide range of voice command needs. Google Assistant is offered on Android and iOS, but it can even be integrated with other devices like smartwatches, Google Homes, and Android TVs.
Actions templates allow you to build Google Assistant applications like trivia games or flashcard generators without writing a single line of code. You can integrate Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) to give your application more character and make responses seem more life-like. Google Assistant has also added multilingual capabilities, which allows you to expand your application to a much a wider audience.
In this lab, you will build a trivia Assistant application from an Actions template that utilizes SSML responses and multilingual capabilities. This will give your Assistant application unique sound effects and an option to be used in another language. You will add these features by leveraging GCP services like Cloud Storage and the Cloud Translation API and by the end you will have built a robust Assistant application.
