Structured data tells Google about the type of content you’re creating, so we can present it to users in an interactive way. In addition to presenting your content as a rich result on Google Search, we can read your markup to automatically build an Action that presents your content on the Google Assistant and creates an entry in the Assistant directory. When users ask the Assistant for one of the available content types, we may show your Action.
If you’re just getting started, learn more about how structured data works.
Publish your content
Google can generate a variety of Actions based on web content that you provide. Refer to the following list of supported content types to learn about creating Actions for each type:
Users can find your podcast in the Assistant directory and play episodes on their devices using the Google Assistant. Create an RSS feed for your podcast and we can auto-generate an Action for it.
For more information on setting up your podcast feed, see the Podcasts documentation.
Users can follow your recipes through rich cards presented in the Google Assistant and learn about your content on the Assistant directory. Create markup for your recipes and we can auto-generate an Action for them.
For information on setting up your recipe content, see the recipes structured data documentation.
Users can consume your content through the Google Assistant as part of Google News, including the top stories carousel. When you add structured data to your AMP pages, we can surface your news content on the Google Assistant.
For information on setting up your news article content, see the article structured data documentation.
Users can follow your how-to guides in the Google Assistant. When users ask the Assistant for help with a task, we may recommend your how-to if they can help with that task. Create markup for your how-to content and we can auto-generate an Action for your guides.
For more information on How-to Actions built with markup, see the How-to Action with markup documentation.
Note: How-to guide Actions built with markup are currently in developer preview and only available on smart displays. If you’d like to provide your users with the best visual experience on smart displays, including the images specified in the markup, fill out the interest form.
If you don’t have a website for your how-to guides, you can still create a How-to Action that uses your how-to videos. To create a How-to Guide Action without markup use the How-to Video Template.
Users who ask the Google Assistant for information on a topic can receive your FAQ content to give them the best answers. Create markup for your FAQ content and we can auto-generate an Action with your information.
For information on FAQ Actions built with markup, see the FAQ Action documentation.

Optional: Claim your Action
If you published your content and its structured data, we may create a page in the Assistant directory for your content. If you’re a verified site owner in Search Console, you’ll receive an email explaining how to claim your directory page. You can also claim your page by finding it in the directory itself and clicking the link to claim the page.
To learn more about the directory and how to modify your page, see the Assistant directory documentation.
Optional: Remove your Action
If you’d like to disable an auto-generated Action for your content, follow these steps:
Go to the Actions console and select your project from the displayed tiles.
