The AGL Action for Google Assistant
The AGL Action has been created to help our customers who have a Google Home or other Google Assistant-enabled device to get information about their AGL energy account quickly and easily.
Simply speak to your device and say, "Hey Google, talk to AGL" and ask questions like:
- "What's my account balance?"
- "What's my bill amount?"
- "When's my payment due?"
- "What's my electricity cost to date?" (smart meter customers only)
You can also switch to e-billing and request a payment extension.
Over time, more and more AGL capabilities will be added, making the Google Assistant an even more convenient way to connect with AGL.
Google Assistant may not be able to answer your questions because the question you are asking is currently not part of the AGL Action. AGL will review customer feedback and requests for additional voice features and update the AGL Action with new features. Your feedback is important to us. If you'd like to provide feedback on the AGL Action, please join the AGL Community or email us at email@example.com.
When we update the AGL Action with new features or enhancements you'll be able to see the update in Google Assistant in addition to Google Action customers receiving an email with important updates (provided we have your consent).

Privacy and data security
At AGL we take privacy seriously. Steps we take to secure your personal information include that we seek to only provide Google with information that is necessary to answer your question or use the Action. For example, you'll notice that data, such as your personal address, is not provided fully. It's still your responsibility to ensure that Google Assistant can't be heard by anyone else, so remember to be aware of who is around who could use Google Assistant or around you when you ask Google Assistant for your information. We use end to end encryption to protect your data.
