We've changed our name – API.AI is now Dialogflow! With Dialogflow, you’ll have an end-to-end platform for everything you need to build great conversational experiences, including: prototyping an idea, testing locally, deploying widely, training with real data, and monitoring/analyzing for performance.

Along with our new name, here are two new features to help you build out your flow of dialog:
1. In-line code editor so you can write fulfillment logic directly in the console
2. Multi-lingual agent support so you can add additional languages to your agents
