How to set a timer in Voiceflow as Google Assistant?

Hello everyone! I am working on Voiceflow for a future implementation with Google Assistant.
Is there a way to set a timer like the one that works in Alexa? So that if the user says “Set a timer for 10 minutes”, the assistant will countdown and announce the end (“10 minutes have passed”)?
Is there something already integrated or usable as an API?
Thank you very much for your help and suggestions!

Hi @M_91

Take a look at this Google document to get some ideas: Daily updates (Dialogflow)  |  User engagement  |  Google Developers

Also just a reminder that Google will no longer support Conversational Actions as of June 2023.

Thank you @Catherinemaddock !

I was wondering if there is a way to do it directly from the Voiceflow console?

And thanks for the heads-up!

Hi @M_91

You can take the API call(s) from that document and plug it into our API block.

More information on our API block options can be found through this page: Interact

Happy Holidays!
