Dialogflow pricing

Dialogflow is priced monthly based on the edition and the requests made during the month.

Dialogflow CX free trial

Each new customer will receive a $600 credit for a free trial of Dialogflow CX. This credit is automatically activated upon using Dialogflow CX for the first time and expires after 12 months. This is a Dialogflow-specific extension of the Google Cloud free trial.

Pricing table

The following terms are used to describe pricing and quotas:

  • Request: A request is defined as any API call to the Dialogflow service, whether direct with API usage or indirect with integration or console usage. Depending on the task and design of the agent, the number of requests needed for an end-user to accomplish a task with a Dialogflow agent can vary greatly.
  • Session: A session is a conversation between an end-user and a Dialogflow agent. A session remains active and its data is stored for 30 minutes after the last request is sent for the session. A session can be either a chat session or a voice session. For the purpose of calculating prices and quotas, one conversation can count as multiple sessions:
    • Chat session: A chat session only uses text for requests and responses. If a chat session has more than 40 requests, it is counted as multiple sessions with at most 40 requests per session. For example, if a session has 81 queries, it will be counted as 3 sessions.
    • Voice session: A voice session uses audio for requests, responses, or both. If a voice session has more than 10 minutes of audio, it is counted as multiple sessions with at most 10 minutes per session. For example, if a session has 21 minutes of audio, it will be counted as 3 sessions.
  • Consumer projects and resource projects: If you use multiple projects, it is possible that the project associated with your request authentication (consumer project) is not the same project that is associated with the agent in the request (resource project). In this case, the consumer project is used to determine prices and quotas. For more information, see Using multiple projects for ES or Using multiple projects for CX.

The following tables provide a pricing comparison for editions by agent type. Unless a feature is indicated as included, pricing is cumulative for all features used by a request.

New Dialogflow CX pricing (2021-09) will take effect on September 1, 2021. Until that date, the original prices (2020-09) are in effect. If you have an existing Google Cloud contract based on the original prices, you can continue using them until contract renewal.
