Google decided that they are sunsetting Google Conversational Actions (which means all custom conversational apps built on top of the Google Assistant platform). You can learn more here:
What this means:
- After June 13, 2023 (in about a year), Google will remove all Google Conversational Actions from the Google Assistant “marketplace” -> existing Actions won’t work anymore and it won’t be possible to publish new ones
- This includes all custom Actions, there is no way to circumvent this by using the old Dialogflow Assistant integration
- The only types of Actions that are going to work are so called “App Actions” that work in a different way and are tied to an Android app
Unfortunately, this means we won’t be able to build Google Actions with Jovo anymore. This is a bummer because a lot of people (including us) have invested time and money into the Google Assistant ecosystem. However, we learned a lot while integrating with this platform and took a lot of ideas from it into the development of Jovo
Maybe it’s time for you to finally move towards building a custom solution? Or looking for other interesting platforms to deploy your Jovo apps to? You can find everything in the Jovo Marketplace: https://www.jovo.tech/marketplace
