Start Google Action with 'Play'


Hi all

I’ve built an app using Jovo for Alexa and Google. I’ve configured the Alexa skill to start with play, for example “Alexa play my radio station.”

I want to do the same on google so you’d say “hey google, play my radio station.”

I seem to only be able to launch my app using “hey google talk to my radio station,” but that doesn’t seem to be great for a radio station whereby the radio listener would want their speaker to ‘play’ something.

Thanks, Dan


As far as I know, this isn’t possible.

It’s possible to implement the actions.intent.PLAY_GAME implicit invocation, but that’s only for games right now, no “play music” kind of invocation, as far as I can see.
