Configure a Developer Project and Account Settings

Configure an Actions Console project

A Google Cloud Platform project, managed by the Actions Console, gives your device access to the Google Assistant API. The project tracks quota usage and gives you valuable metrics for the requests made from your device.

To enable access to the Google Assistant API, do the following:

  1. Open the Actions Console.

    Go to the Actions Console

  2. Click on Add/import project.

  3. To create a new project, type a name in the Project name box and click CREATE PROJECT.

    If you already have an existing Google Cloud Platform project, you can select that project and import it instead.

    Add/import project

  4. Click the Device registration box located near the bottom of the page.

    Device registration

  5. Enable the Google Assistant API on the project you selected (see the Terms of Service). You need to do this in the Cloud Platform Console.

    Enable the API

    Click Enable.

Set activity controls for your account

In order to use the Google Assistant, you must share certain activity data with Google. The Google Assistant needs this data to function properly; this is not specific to the SDK.

Open the Activity Controls page for the Google account that you want to use with the Assistant. You can use any Google account, it does not need to be your developer account.

Ensure the following toggle switches are enabled (blue):

  • Web & App Activity
    • In addition, be sure to select the Include Chrome browsing history and activity from websites and apps that use Google services checkbox.
  • Device Information
  • Voice & Audio Activity
