Deploying a chatbot over Google assistant

Have you ever wondered to see some of your friends chatbots replying to you. Today we will cover how to deploy a chatbot in google assistant. we will cover only the deployment part here.


Step-1

Go to https://dialogflow.cloud.google.com/

Select your agent(chatbot)

A new window names " Actions Console " at Left will open .

Click on "Build your Action" as shown in below figure to add invocation ( how you invoke the chatbot from google assistant) and test it in simulation before deploying to alpha testing or public.







As you can see ,I have named my bot " Dr Nalco" , Name has to be Unique and two words ,else it wont be accepted. You can also change the voice of your bot. Then Hit " Save " at right corner.


Step-5

Testing

It is a very critical part to test your bot over voice. Some times you will see a pop up to enable google voice control. Once enabled you will be able to test in your simulator.




Step -6

Once you have tested and changed intents and other configuration , you can release your chatbot

in three phases



Alpha testing -- beta testing-production

(20 users) (200 users) (Public)



You can get instructions data for alpha release from following articles. Just add the users in IM and Admin console and ask them to accept the invitation and test in simulator ,Then they will be able to test in their device.
