What You'll Learn 🧠

  • How to deploy your Google Assistant project to the Google Actions platform.
  • How long you'll have to wait for Alpha, Beta, and Production results.

Note: The steps in this article assume you already have a Voiceflow project linked to the Google Assistant platform. See Uploading Your Project to Google Assistant if you haven't already linked your project.

Step 1  ➤  Fill in Your Project Directory Information

  • Enter the 'Publish' tab on Voiceflow
  • Click on your project's Google ID in the drop-down, this will direct you to the Google Actions console
  • On the Google Actions console, give your skill an invocation name (if you haven't already)
  • To do this, navigate to the [Invocation] tab in the left menu
  • On the invocation page, enter a valid invocation name for your action
  • Navigate to the [Deploy] section on the left menu and click on [Directory Information]
  • Fill out all the required fields in the form
  • Click [SAVE
  • If you have multiple locales selected, you can switch between them using the top bar.
  • In the Privacy and Consent section, you can use Voiceflow's generated links in the 'Publish' page if you do not have your own.

Step 2  ➤  Deploying to an Environment

  • After filling out all the required fields, select the [Release] tab from the left menu.
  • You should now see options to deploy to Alpha, Beta, and Production. Select the environment you would like to deploy to. 
  • Deploying to Production and Beta will require a review by Google, which typically takes between 1-3 business days.
  • Your pending deploy should now be listed in the 'Current Versions' section, as well as all previous versions in the 'Previous Versions' Section.
  • These versions correspond to the version selector in the Google Actions simulator.
  • To re-visit and test a previous version, simply click [CHANGE VERSION] and select it from the drop-down in the simulator tool.

Step 3  ➤  Wait For Your Results

  • Google generally takes a few days to approve or deny a skill for deployment.
  • If you submitted your project to Alpha, a review will not be required and changes should be reflected within a few hours.
