Recently I have gotten a new notification. It just about Google Assistant support 16 new languages. I am quite surprise, but it is also not new because, the Google Assistant are available to users on more than 400 million devices, we’re focused on expanding the availability of the developer platform even further. At Mobile World Congress, we’re sharing some good news for our international developer community.
Starting today, you can build Actions for the Google Assistant in seven new languages:
These new additions join English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Russian. That brings our total count of supported languages to 16! You can develop for all of them using Dialogflow and its natural language processing capabilities, or directly with the Actions SDK. And we’re not stopping here–expect more languages to be added later this year.
If you localize your apps in these new languages you won’t just be among the first Actions available in the new locales, you’ll also earn rewards while you do it! And if you’re new to Actions on Google, check out our community program* to learn how you can snag an exclusive Google Assistant t-shirt and up to $200 of monthly Google Cloud credit by publishing your first Action. Already we’ve seen partners take advantage of other languages we’ve launched in the past like Bring!, which is now available in both English and German.
Link to your Android app to help users get things done from their mobile devices
By the end of the year the Assistant will reach 95 percent of all eligible Android phones worldwide, and Actions are a great way for you to reach those users to help them get things done easily over voice. Sometimes, however, users may benefit from the versatility of your Android app for particularly complex or highly interactive tasks.
So today, we’re introducing a new feature that lets you deep link from your Actions in the Google Assistant to a specific intent in your Android app. Here’s an example of SpotHero linking from their Action to their Android app after a user purchased a parking reservation. The Android app allows the user to see more details about the reservation or redeem their spot.
As you integrate these links in your Action, you’ll make it easier for your users to find what they’re looking for and to move seamlessly to your Android app to complete their user journey. This new feature will roll out over the coming weeks, but you can check out our developer documentation for more information on how to get started.
