Key features

Key features for Dialogflow CX

Visual flow builder

Reduce development time with interactive flow visualizations that allow builders to quickly see, understand, edit, and share their work. It also allows for easy collaboration across teams.

Omnichannel implementation

Build once, deploy everywhere—in your contact centers and digital channels. Seamlessly integrate your agents across platforms including web, mobile, and messenger and with telephony partners such as Genesys, Avaya, and Cisco.

Advanced AI

Improve your call/chat containment rate with the latest BERT-based natural language understanding (NLU) models that are capable of recognizing intent and context accurately and efficiently in more complex use cases.

State-based data models

Reuse intents, intuitively define transitions and data conditions, and handle supplemental questions—allowing customers to deviate from the main topic, then gracefully return to the main flow.

End-to-end management

Take care of all your agent management needs including CI/CD, analytics, experiments, and bot evaluation inside Dialogflow—you don't need any other custom softwares.
