Actions on Google

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Actions on Google

Actions on Google is a development platform for the Google Assistant. It allows the third-party development of "actions"—applets for the Google Assistant that provide extended functionality.[1][2]


The actions platform supports "direct" actions, as well as "conversational" actions for more complex applications.[1] More advanced developers are able to develop directly against the API, and a SDK for Node.js is also available.[3]

As of April 2017 there were more than 175 Actions for Google Assistant,[4] including ones from Uber, The Motley Fool, NPR One, NBC News, and Domino's Pizza. The availability was further extended beyond the Google Home space into Android and iOS.[5]
