Google is not (always) interested in small products. They are chasing moonshots. They want to build platforms. They want Google Assistant also to be such a platform. They want it everywhere. They want it to be able to do all kind of actions for users.
What do you need for that?
More developer participation. More third party apps and integrations. More stuff that you can ask Google Assistant to tell you or get done for you. Google needs more attention from developers for this to work. Google is inviting developers to “Join the Actions on Google Developer Challenge”.
