How to make rasa chatbot to search any topic from google?

I created a simple Rasa Chatbot and trained with basic questions but if user ask anything other than what I trained it should search from Google and show it. How to do it. Thank you.

I guess you’ll have to write a custom action that takes the user input (or part of it), sends it to the Custom Search JSON API by Google and displays the responses accordingly. I suggest you look into Rasa Custom Actions and above mention Google API


One approach could be:

You can have something like an out-of-scope intent (see this example) and trigger a custom action on that intent. In this custom action you can hit google’s api to search for the text.

can you show me an example or sample code because where to use it I have no idea and thanks for fast reply.

In your file, you write:

## search_google
* out_of_scope
    - action_search_google

Now you need to implement this action in your See doc. You can either scrape the search page or use Google API as mentioned by @sugarshock for getting the search results.
