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

Step 1. Filling in Your Project's Directory Information

From the Voiceflow publishing page, navigate to the Google Actions console by clicking on your project's Google ID in the drop-down.

Once on the Google Actions console, give your skill an Invocation Name if you haven't already by navigating to the "Invocation" tab in the left menu.

On the invocation page, enter a valid Invocation Name for your skill.

Now navigate to the 'Deploy' section on the left menu and click on 'Directory Information'.

Fill out all the required fields in the form, and click [SAVE] when you are finished. 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 from 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. 

Note: 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.

That's it! All that's left to do is to 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.
