Connecting your Google Assistant Account to Zapier

  2. You'll then see a pop-up asking if you want to link Zapier to your account. Select "Yes".
  3. Next, you'll be diverted into your Zapier account. Here you'll be asked to grant permission for Zapier to access your data. Select "Authorize".
  4. You've now successfully connected your Google Assistant account to Zapier! To view your connection in your Zapier account, you can view it in your Advanced Settings

Via Google Assistant app

  1. In your Google Assistant app, click the compass icon to take you to the “What’s New” page.
  2. Search for Zapier & click "Talk to Zapier"
  3. Next, you'll be asked "Before you can use Zapier, I need to link your Zapier account to Google. Is that OK?". Answer with "Yes".
  4. Your internet browser will be opened and you'll be asked to log into your Zapier account.
  5. Now, you'll be asked to grant permission for Zapier to access your data. Select "Authorize".
  6. When you see the message of "Zapier here! What can I do for you?" you're all set to create your Zaps.

Setting your trigger option

  1. Set the App as "Google Assistant" and the Event as "New Pushed Voice Message".
  2. Next, set a phrase(s) you’d like to use to Trigger the Zap with. The Trigger Phrases(s) field is where you can set up your voice command. If you wish to send over additional information, use Prompts for additional information to ask additional question and with these answers, you can map these out in the rest of your Zap.

Tip: You can set up multiple different phrases which means that you don’t have to say the exact phrase each time.

Test your Zap

  1. To test your Trigger, start a conversation with Zapier by either opening the Google Assistant app or speak to your Google device and say "Hey Google, speak to Zapier" or "Hey Google, talk to Zapier".
  2. Next, you'll be asked what you want Zapier to do for you. Say your set Trigger Phrase(s) for the Zap you wish to run.
  3. If you have any Prompts for additional information set, you'll then be asked these.
  4. And then your Zap will start!
  5. When you hear the “bloop bloop” sound, that means it's the end of the conversation.
