Install apps to be used with the assistant

Apps are here to help you empower your Assistant. Apps that are created from the console have actions that can come in different formats:

  • Python snippets

  • Home Assistant snippets

  • Github repositories

Those snippets & github links are also included in the assistant you put on your device. To have them running:

sam install actions

Installing apps from Github

If you created your own app that is hosted on Github, and you wish to install it manually, you can do it with:

sam install skills -g <github-repository-link> -b <specific-branch>

The branch name is optional.

If you want to know more about how to create your own Apps or how they are running behind the scenes, read on how to code your action.
