As many of you know, since 2019 you have the possibility of adding your radio station to Amazon’s virtual assistant: Alexa for just $119/ year. Well guess what? You can now make your radio station available on Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for the same price.
We’ve updated our Smart Speaker offer to include the creation of an Alexa Skill (for Amazon), and a Google Action (for Google).
What is Google Assistant?
Juste like Alexa for Amazon, Google Assistant is Google’s virtual assistance program. It’s available mainly on mobile devices (phones and tablets), connected speakers (e.g. Google Home) and smart displays (e.g. Google Home Hub).

Put simply, a Google Action is essentially a voice application for Google Assistant. This application will allow your listeners to launch your radio station, and even ask what the current title is with a simple voice command.

How to access my radio station via Google Assistant?
