Voice Interface Workshop
Learn how to create your own voice interfaces using the Google Actions platform. We’ll look at the technologies involved, how to plan for a conversation, and then build a voice interaction together. With the rise of voice assistants, voice is becoming another surface area for users to interact with your product or service. We can now start to blend this new technology with our existing offerings to improve user experience, engagement, and satisfaction.
In this workshop, we’ll learn about the Google Actions platform and how it works to provide you with all the tools you need to build your own conversational interfaces. Throughout the workshop, you’ll also build your own Action and see how to extend it for deeper integration with your application.We’ll also spend time looking at how to design a conversation interface, including thinking through the various phases of dialog and sketching out expected flows.Finally, we’ll look at how to review and improve your Action by using the analytics and AI training tools available from Google.
Learn the technical fundamentals of building voice actions quickly, as well as the social and human considerations for its design.
Content & Process
We’ll start with an introduction to building voice experience with Google, and review the tools available in its ecosystem. We’ll also setup the mental framework for the demo app we’ll be designing and building.
Then we’ll step back and engage in some design practices. These will help you think through the logical parts of the voice experience and conversation, identify areas for handling repair (errors), and ensure you focus on the key aspects of the implementation.
