Slice It Up: Driving the user engagement outside your app

Tatyana Casino

Software Engineer at WillowTree

Yep, you guessed it! This talk is about Slices, which were recently announced at Google I/O! Slices are pieces of rich, dynamic, and interactive content that can show up in Google Search app results and later in Google Assistant. In this talk, I will explain how Slices work and cover everything you need to get started now - including best practices for building them. I will show the full workflow for creating an interactive and dynamic Slice with Kotlin, how to use templates, and manage styling and customization. You will learn how Slices work with Android’s permission system and how to update their content with SliceLiveData. Finally, we will discuss options available for testing Slices.
