Google offers a wide variety of free development tools and the company recently launched a web page showcasing the most interesting apps developers have created using them. Categories include, AR experiments, Experiments with Chrome, Experiments with Android and the newest of the group, Voice Experiments.
Voice Experiments showcases applications made with the Actions on Google platform as well as Google Assistant-enable devices like Google Home. These experiments were also made with tools like Dialogflow, which make it easier for developers to create new voice experiences on devices.
A statement on the page reads, "since 2009, coders have created thousands of amazing experiments using Chrome, Android, AI, WebVR, AR and more. We're showcasing projects here, along with helpful tools and resources, to inspire others to create new experiments. Here are collections of experiments to explore, with new ones added every week. Have fun."
Since the page is so new, there are only four cases listed:
Mystery Animal - a twist on the classic 20-questions game.
Story Speaker - lets anyone produce narrated, interactive stories with no prior programming knowledge required.
MixLab - makes creating music using voice commands simple for anyone.
Meme Buddy - lets you create memes with a series of voice commands.
Each app has its own page that can be launched from a browser, with some having links to GitHub repos allowing users to study the code.
Google launched actions on Google last year and since then, there have been a number of 3rd-party apps and services to plug into Google's virtual assistant. This past August, Walmart linked up with Google Express for hands-free shopping and in September, LG added support for over 80 of its appliances.
