Connecting to Websites and Apps

You can connect your other properties (sites, Android apps) to your Actions console project in order to enable cross-platform functionality.

Connecting a website

You may want to connect a web property you own with your Actions project for the following reasons:

  • You can claim certain, reserved invocation names: We reserve major brand names as invocation names for developers who prove they're affiliated with that brand. For example, if you want to use the name “Personal Chef,” you must first connect your Actions project with www.personalchef.com and verify your affiliation.

  • You can send Assistant users to your website: If we've verified that you're the owner of your site, your Actions can send users a suggestion chip that links users to your website.

To connect websites with your Actions console project:

  1. In the left-hand panel of the Actions Console, click Brand verification.

  2. Click the button.

  3. Enter the URL for the website you want to connect and click Verify.

  4. Google sends you an email confirming the request and an email to the website owner (verified in Search Console) asking them to confirm the association.

After the website owner confirms the association, it's added to a list of your connected websites in the Sites & Apps tab. If you need assistance claiming your brand, please contact support.

Connecting an Android app

You may want to connect an Android app property with your Actions project to sell your digital goods in the Play store. Implement digital transactions to sell your Play store items as part of a conversation with your Action.

To connect an Android app with your Actions console project, you will first need to connect a website to your project. Follow the Connecting a website instructions above.

Once you've connected a website, click the button on the Sites & Apps tab and follow the instructions shown.

If you need assistance claiming your app, please contact support.
