Provide a faster way for users to access your Android app. Deep link users directly into a specific activity using App Actions or surface relevant content on Assistant with Slices.

For Android Developers

Provide a shortcut to your app as users talk to Google Assistant using App Actions. Through the power of Google’s natural language understanding, Assistant handles the user request and translates it to a deep link into your app.

How to build

Review the available built-in intents definitions and match them with key functionalities in your app.

Create an Actions.xml file so Assistant can take users directly to specific activities in your Android app.

Optionally update your Actions.xml file to surface key information from your app directly in Assistant as an Android Slice.

Use the App Actions test tool in Android Studio to make sure that your Action works and is ready for deployment.
