Google Assistant API gRPC bindings

Project description

This package contains the generated Python bindings for the Google Assistant Service. It is part of the Google Assistant SDK.

This package should be compatible with POSIX platforms supporting gRPC and Python.


  • You can install using pip.:

    pip install --upgrade google-assistant-grpc



  • Initialize the gRPC stubs using google.assistant.embedded.v1alpha1.embedded_assistant_pb2_grpc.:

    import google.assistant.embedded.v1alpha1.embedded_assistant_pb2_grpc
    assistant = embedded_assistant_pb2.EmbeddedAssistantStub(channel)
  • Call the Assist streaming method. It takes a generator of AssistRequest and returns a generator of AssistResponse.:

    assist_responses_generator = assistant.Assist(assist_requests_generator)
  • Send a AssistRequest message with audio configuration parameters followed by multiple outgoing AssistRequest messages containing the audio data of the Assistant request.:

    import google.assistant.embedded.v1alpha1.embedded_assistant_pb2
    def generate_assist_requests():
        yield embedded_assistant_pb2.AssistConfig(
        for data in acquire_audio_data():
            yield embedded_assistant_pb2.AssistRequest(audio_in=data)
  • Handle the incoming stream of AssistResponse messages:

    • Stop recording when receiving a AssistResponse with the EventType message set to END_OF_UTTERANCE.

    • Get transcription of the user query from the SpeechRecognitionResult field.

    • Get conversation metadata like supplemental display text from the Assistant from the DialogStateOut field.

    • Extract the audio data of the Assistant response from the AudioOut field.

for assist_response in assist_response_generator:
    if resp.event_type == END_OF_UTTERANCE:
    if resp.speech_results:
       print(' '.join(r.transcript for r in resp.speech_results)
    if resp.dialog_state_out.supplemental_display_text:
    if len(resp.audio_out.audio_data) > 0:
