Pi as a Google Assistant Setup
You will need the following components:
Once your Pi 3 is hooked up to a monitor and an internet connection is established, browse to the Google Assistant site on the Pi monitor itself. https://developers.google.com/assistant/sdk/prototype/getting-started-pi-python/ (This will make the process of copying and downloading code much simpler.)*
When you reach step #4 under "Configure a Developer Project and Account Settings" Download or copy the json file to the downloads folder and skip the "Run" command at the bottom. Proceed to the next section to "Test" or skip that section as well and proceed to "Configure and Run the Sample".
