Fill in a Google Sheet, Create an Action.

Create your own trivia game, personality quiz, or flash cards for the Google Assistant with a fully defined persona, and without a single line of code.

Template Features

  • Create an Action within minutes

    Select the type of Action you want to build, a personality, and your Google Sheet. That's it; your Action is ready for testing.

  • Build without code

    If you know how to fill a spreadsheet, you're ready to build an Action. Fill in a Google Sheet with your questions, anticipated answers, and hints or follow-ups to design your Action's functionality.

  • Choose a pre-defined personality

    Pre-defined personalities are readily available when you create an Action from our templates, offering a voice, tone, music, sound effects, and natural conversational feel for your Action's users without any work on your end.

  • Expand to different languages

    Go global with your Action. Upload a Google Sheet for each language you want to support, and users in those locales will automatically be directed to your Action in their language. To learn more about supporting multiple languages on your Action, check out our articles on Localization.

  • Make an Action for families

    Template Actions usually comply with the Actions for Families policies, so you can target your Action for a family audience with a "For Families" badge in the Assistant Directory.

    To learn how to submit your Action for families, follow our template Action guides below then reference Submitting your Action on the Actions for Families docs.
