Actions On Google Devs Get New Tools To Help With Creations

Actions on Google devs are getting some new tools to help with their creations and Google is taking things a step further by providing developers with a dedicated site to go to which houses beneficial insight and information about best practices and helpful tips for creating an action. The website, labeled as a series of conversation design guidelines, currently offers two main categories directly related to creating Actions on Google, which are designing actions on Google, and how to use this site, in addition to a link that jumps to other useful resources. At the moment the site is mostly bare with not a lot of information, so it's likely that Google will be adding to this in the days, weeks, and months to come.

As for the new tools that developers can get their hands on, tips and tricks from gathering requirements on what's needed to create an action to drawing high-level flows are things which Google wants to help developers achieve. Google's ultimate goal with the new tools and the new site that developers can use a strong reference point for useful information, is to help them create conversational experiences for Actions on Google that are intuitive and simple to use. This way things feel as natural as possible for users and should make the experience as high-quality and enjoyable as possible.

In addition Google aims to help developers ensure that their conversations are scalable across devices. Google Assistant is available on multiple device types including smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, TVs, smart speakers and more, and making the conversations scalable will ensure that users have a good experience across these devices regardless of where they are when using them, meaning they can be at home talking to a smart speaker or their smartphone to interact with other smart home products, or they can be out and about using their watch to ask a question about the nearest place to find a particular product they're looking for.
