Audio Loudness
We have published a guide on how to get your SSML audio clips ready for actions: https://goo.gl/FWdC6t

This guide will help you ensure your audio files match the loudness of the Google Assistant TTS output.

Hey! If you are Android developer and/or have Java background, I started building Google Actions SDK in Java. I hope you find it useful, even in this early stage. :)

You can find the available actions in the Google Home app. Menu -> More Settings -> Services. I don't know how long it takes for an action to be reviewed.

Any way to get the transcribed user queries and responses that were returned in a bid to improve accuracy and relevance of responses?

Thanks

Many of our great analytics partners support this as well
developers.google.com - Overview | Actions on Google | Google Developers

You can also find the queries in the API.AI training tab

I'm trying to get location permission for device. I copied the 'apiai-name-psychic' code and imported the intents to API.AI. My code is running locally with ngrok. Whenever I try to 'assistant.isPermissionGranted()' I see "Cannot read property 'data' of null" and the request fails. How can I get the example going?

I believe there's a missing "});" on https://developers.google.com/actions/develop/sdk/dialogs-and-fulfillment
page, in the code sample of Initialize the ActionsSdkAssistant object section, before the line // Start the server.

Is it possible to open up a stream of audio from the Google home to my application? AKA if someone wanted to know what they are watching on TV they could ask my service and I would hear the audio stream and identify that they are watching "Happy days"

I'd like to begin developing conversational user interfaces that leverage both voice and screen, targeting devices such as Pixel. What are recommendations for the graphical portion of such applications (e.g. API.AI Rich Messages)?
1

Actions on Google isn't quite ready yet to support other surfaces like Pixel.

I would like to develop a Tea Timer that sets a time based on a specific tea type. Can I utilize a timer within an Action?

Connecting to an IoT button?

Hello,

Is there away for a user to tap in a IoT connected (Bluetooth) button to trigger the Google Home "OkGoogle" action?

Hello!
If I make an application for Google Assistant, can it pass back data to Google Calendar, say, without leaving the app.
E.g. the conversation goes:
"launch PersonalChef",
"Hi PersonalChef here",
"I'd like to cook something later with beef and brussel sprouts"
etc. etc. then the user says:
"Remind me to cook this meal on Thursday evening".

Can the app pass the reminder data back to Calendar or Keep?

I'm attempting to set up a conversational user interface and am attempting to setup contexts with deep links. Either the user can enter by asking:

"Ask MyApp what my balance is?" OR "Ask MyApp what Bob's balance is".

This is straightforward. The difficulty is that here I'd like there to be context indicating that the next question asked may be in the context of "my" vs. "Bob"
So that if the user asks, "Let's change it to 13" I can respond with either

"Changing your balance to 13" or "Changing Bob's balance to 13"

New here. Trying a really simple Action. Works in Simulator.

How do I try it on my Google Home device, connected to same developer account where I developed/simulated on?

Do I HAVE to Publish? The action is a proof of concept right now, and I dont want to really submit it for review process.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I run the number-genie example for api.ai -- https://github.com/actions-on-google/apiai-number-genie-nodejs. When I execute the app on my local ubuntu server, (step 7) This is what I get as output:

./app.js: line 1: use-strict: command not found
./app.js: line 2: process.env.DEBUG: command not found
./app.js: line 3: syntax error near unexpected token `('
./app.js: line 3: `let ApiAiAssistant = require('actions-on-google').ApiAiAssistant;'

However, when I run any other app on node.js, it runs fine.

I just checked out a clone of the repo and it is working fine for me:
git clone github.com - actions-on-google/apiai-number-genie-nodejs
cd apiai-number-genie-nodejs/
npm install
node app.js
