Google Home & Assistant Now Allow Developers To Build Voice Commands

Take note SEOs, with Google going more and more towards voice queries, i.e. Google Assistant on your mobile phone, Google Home in your kitchen, Android Auto in your car and other voice prompts - it is not just about featured snippets anymore. Developers can code up their own "Conversation Actions" so your users can interact with your content via Google Home or Google Assistant.

Google announced this yesterday saying:

In October, we previewed Actions on Google, the developer platform for the Google Assistant. Actions on Google further enhances the Assistant user experience by enabling you to bring your services to the Assistant. Starting today, you can build Conversation Actions for Google Home and request to become an early access partner for upcoming platform features.

Here is how it might work: Say "Ok Google, talk to Number Genie " or try "Ok Google, talk to Eliza' for the classic 1960s AI exercise. It will trigger that developers conversation actions to trigger.

I will be personally trying to build something around this - probably in the Jewish area but maybe in search also. If you have ideas, list them below in the comments.
