Samples and Tools the Google Assistant SDK

Project Description

This package contains a collection of samples and tools to help you get started with the Google Assistant SDK using Python.

Installing

  • You can install using pip:

    pip install --upgrade google-assistant-sdk[samples]
    

Usage

google-oauthlib-tool

This tool creates test credentials to authorize devices to call the Google Assistant API when prototyping.

  • Follow the steps to configure a Google API Console Project and a Google account to use with the Google Assistant SDK.

  • Download the client_secret_XXXXX.json file from the Google API Console Project credentials section in the current directory.

  • Generate credentials using google-oauth-tool:

    pip install --upgrade google-auth-oauthlib[tool]
    google-oauthlib-tool --client-secrets client_secret_XXXXX.json --scope https://www.googleapis.com/auth/assistant-sdk-prototype --save --headless
    

googlesamples-assistant-audiotest

This tool verifies device setup for audio recording and playback.

  • Install the sample’s dependencies:

    sudo apt-get install portaudio19-dev libffi-dev libssl-dev
    pip install --upgrade google-assistant-sdk[samples]
    
  • Record 10 seconds of audio samples and play them back:

    googlesamples-assistant-audiotest --record-time 10
    
  • Adjust the sound device block size and flush size for a soundcard with limited throughput:

    googlesamples-assistant-audiotest --record-time 10 --audio-block-size=3200 --audio-flush-size=6400
    

The same --audio-block-size and --audio-flush-size options can be used on the gRPC samples included in the SDK.

googlesamples-assistant-devicetool

This tool allows you to register Google Assistant device models and instances and associate them with Device Actions traits.

  • Install the sample’s dependencies:

    sudo apt-get install portaudio19-dev libffi-dev libssl-dev
    pip install --upgrade google-assistant-sdk[samples]
    
  • Show the CLI tool usage:

    googlesamples-assistant-devicetool --help
    
  • Register a new device model and new device instance (after replacing the ‘placeholder values’ between quotes):

    googlesamples-assistant-devicetool register --model 'my-model-identifier' \
                                                --type LIGHT --trait action.devices.traits.OnOff \
                                                --manufacturer 'Assistant SDK developer' \
                                                --product-name 'Assistant SDK light' \
                                                --description 'Assistant SDK light device' \
                                                --device 'my-device-identifier' \
                                                --nickname 'My Assistant Light'
    
  • Register or overwrite the device model with the supported traits (after replacing the ‘placeholder values’ between quotes):

    googlesamples-assistant-devicetool register-model --model 'my-model-identifier' \
                                                      --type LIGHT --trait action.devices.traits.OnOff \
                                                      --manufacturer 'Assistant SDK developer' \
                                                      --product-name 'Assistant SDK light' \
                                                      --description 'Assistant SDK light device'
    

Note: The model identifier must be globally unique.

  • Register or overwrite the device instance using the device model (after replacing the ‘placeholder values’ between quotes):

    googlesamples-assistant-devicetool register-device --device 'my-device-identifier' \
                                                       --model 'my-model-identifier' \
                                                       --nickname 'My Assistant Light'
    

Note: The device instance identifier should be unique within the Google Developer Project associated with the device.

  • Verify that the device model and instance have been registered correctly:

    googlesamples-assistant-devicetool get --model 'my-model-identifier'
    googlesamples-assistant-devicetool get --device 'my-device-identifier'
    
  • List all device models and instances:

    googlesamples-assistant-devicetool list --model
    googlesamples-assistant-devicetool list --device
    

googlesamples-assistant-pushtotalk

This reference sample implements a simple but functional client for the Google Assistant gRPC API.

  • Install the sample’s dependencies:

    sudo apt-get install portaudio19-dev libffi-dev libssl-dev
    pip install --upgrade google-assistant-sdk[samples]
    
  • Run the push to talk sample. The sample records a voice query after a key press and plays back the Google Assistant’s answer:

    googlesamples-assistant-pushtotalk --device-id 'my-device-identifier'
    
  • Try some Google Assistant voice query like “What time is it?” or “Who am I?”.

  • Try a device action query like “Turn <nickname / model product name> on”.

  • Run in verbose mode to see the gRPC communication with the Google Assistant API:

    googlesamples-assistant-pushtotalk  --device-id 'my-device-identifier' -v
    

googlesamples-assistant-hotword

This reference sample implements a simple but functional client for the Google Assistant library (linux_arm7l and linux_x86_64).

  • Install the google-assistant-library package:

    pip install --upgrade google-assistant-library
    pip install --upgrade google-assistant-sdk[samples]
    
  • Try the hotword sample:

    googlesamples-assistant-hotword
