Building a Rasa-powered Google Assistant

Hello dear community members,

I followed the tutorial whose name is “Going Beyond ‘Hey Google’: Building a Rasa-powered Google Assistant”. (Going beyond ‘Hey Google’: building a Rasa-powered Google Assistant)

It is a great tutorial but when I literally implemented the code I had the error:

Invocation ErrorYou cannot use standard Google Assistant features in the Simulator. If you want to try them, use Google Assistant on your phone or other compatible devices.

Even though I used the cell phone but I got the same error. What could be the problem? Thank you very much


Hi serdar,

I am not sure if you are still facing this issue, as it is already quite old. I get the same error if my Bot is not ready to receive messages yet. Have you checked that the public endpoint is reachable? E.g. by querying the /health endpoint with curl?

Cheers Eric

in my opinion Google Assistant is one of the best Voice Assistant in the world… For reviews and everything about Google Assistant you can visit Plaza Magazine (
