Building Google Assistant on a Mac

If you're using an iMac or Macbook you can have Google Assistant up and running in 5 minutes or less. Here's a step by step guide to getting Google Home working on a Mac computer.

1. Install Homebrew on Your Mac

If you haven't already installed Homebrew this is the easiest way to do it inside the Terminal for Mac:

ruby -e '$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)'

2. Install Python 3 and Create a Virtual Environment for Google Home

First, you'll need to create a directory for Google Home:
mkdir googlehome
cd googlehome

Now you can install everything in there:
brew install python3
python3 -m venv env
env/bin/python -m pip install --upgrade pip setuptools
source env/bin/activate

3. Install the Google Assistant SDK on Mac

You should make sure to use sudo here to give super user permissions for the install on your Mac.

sudo python3 -m pip install --upgrade google-assistant-sdk[samples]

4. Create a Developer Project and Grant API Access

Head to the Google Cloud Platform Projects page and create a new project.

Enable the Google Assistant API for your new project in the Google API Manager.

Now go to the Credentials tab and create an OAuth Client ID. Tick the Other option and the create it.

You'll finally be able to download a file similar to client_secret_XXXX.json (where XXXX is unique to you.) Copy this file into the googlehome directory you created earlier.

5. Google Home Works on a Mac!

Grant your new Google Home for Mac access to your Google account with this command:

python -m googlesamples.assistant.auth_helpers --client-secrets client_secret_XXXX.json

Ensure to replace client_secret_XXXX.json with your client secret filename.

Test your audio (this will record a 5 second sample from your Mac's microphone and play it back):

python -m googlesamples.assistant.audio_helpers
