Quick one on "Shoe Dog". I really liked it :)
I just finished this book and really enjoyed it. Any entrepreneur and/or a runner should read it. Such an amazing story of a startup (they didn’t have this term back in 1962) that fight against the giants (e.g. Adidas, US customs, Tiger etc’) and succeed…

Implicit Invocation

We noticed that there is a bit of confusion around implicit invocation of Apps for the Google Assistant, so here are some tips.

Implicit invocation occurs when users invoke your app without using its name. This type of invocation occurs when users tell the Google Assistant to do something that's similar to the action invocation phrase for one of your configured intents, or when the user is in a context where your app would be appropriate. It’s a very useful way for users to discover your app, since they can interact with your app without already knowing its name.

There are a couple of things to remember:
1. Implicit triggering is not guaranteed. The platform is still young and we are continually tweaking the algorithms on when to recommend an app that will give users the best results.

2. Over the last few months, we’ve seen some implicit triggers that led users directly to a prompt to login. These triggers introduce a bad user experience because the first thing a user is asked to do is to login. We recommend you prompt the user to login further inside the conversation, only after your app has demonstrated some value to the user. This way you motivate users to login and give them a great first-time experience.

We hope these tips help.

To learn more about creating useful action invocation phrases, check out our implicit invocation docs: https://developers.google.com/actions/discovery/implicit#writing_useful_action_invocation_phrases

During the holidays, I had a bit of time to do some fun stuff with Actions on Google. It started with an idea that a runner friend brought up during a long run and the results is “OK Google, Talk to Western State Race“. If you are an ultra trail runner,…

As always... Great stuff from +Addy Osmani
Tip: Run an array of JavaScript Promises in series. Uses Array.reduce() to create a Promise chain. Each Promise returns the next Promise when resolved.

If you're interested in more tips like this, I'll be cross-posting them over on https://goo.gl/NHiuoN as well as here as time allows.
