The Google Assistant is one of the most fascinating developments in Android devices over the past couple of years. Google has gone AI-First, as we discussed earlier. This push towards AI is being driven by the Google Assistant. Google has now introduced the ‘Actions Console’ which will allow users to create their own app for the assistant without knowing a single line of code!
This is possible with the help of templates on actions console. Let us take a closer look at the types of apps that you can make, and how to make these apps for the Assistant.
What Kind of Apps Can You Make?
These templates on the actions console allow the users to make three kinds of apps:
- Trivia: Basically games that test your knowledge. These are short quiz-like games which are quite interesting.
- Personality Quiz: Personality Quiz gets a little more personal as it is about the user who plays it – who were you in your past life, what city should you live in, where should you travel next, what food are you, etc.
- Flash Cards: A little complex but quite useful, flash cards allow you to help your friends learn a new language, prepare for exams and much more.
