November 7, 2017, MILPITAS, CA – noHold, Inc. just announced the release of a Google Assistant Action called “Albert AI.” This connector empowers Albert customers to connect their own Bot to Google Assistant which is used on over 100 million devices. Devices that are compatible with Google Assistant include Google Home, smartphones, Android TV, Android Auto, smartwatches, and more.
This method has become the easiest way for people to get content on Google Assistant. Typically, creating a Google Action requires some programming knowledge and time. With noHold’s connector, no programming skills are required and your Bot can be on Google Assistant in minutes. All you need is a device with Google Assistant, an Albert account, and access to Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
There are only a few steps to creating a bot and making it live on Google Assistant:
1. Sign up for an Albert PRO account, create a document, and upload to the SICURA™ QuickStart platform.
2. In the top right, click the drop down menu and select “Albert Voice Support” followed by “Google Assistant.”
3. Define a short phrase that will be used to request your Albert.
4. To invoke your bot via Google Assistant, say “Okay Google, talk to Albert AI about (phrase from step 3).” From that moment on you can speak to your Albert.

We can think of applications for the business world and personal life. Imagine an Albert on Google that plays scavenger hunts with your kids, or that settles a dispute for whose turn it is to wash the dishes. Also at work, answering questions if the projector is not working or where the toner for the printer is, etc.
Diego Ventura, CEO and founder of noHold says, “Voice enabling our platform is an important step in making sure that the Virtual Assistants built with SICURA™ are a) available on multiple channels b) easily built with existing documents c) they can connect with each other and d) they can speak multiple languages.”
