In this tutorial, I explain how to add a chatbot to your website using the Dialogflow Messenger integration.
What we will be building
The video below shows what we will be building in this tutorial.
Embed the chat widget into your website
Embedding the chat widget into your website is straight-forward.
Create your Dialogflow agent
Create a new Dialogflow agent, and remove the Welcome event from the Default Welcome Intent.
Add a new intent into your agent with the following information (note that it includes the Welcome event).
Add the script to your web page
Once you create your welcome intent, go to the Integrations pane, and select the Dialogflow Messenger integration.
Now copy the script into your clipboard.
Paste the script you copied into the <head> tag of your HTML page.
In that case, use a plugin like Insert Headers and Footers and add the script into the “Scripts in Header” section.
WordPress Gutenberg Update
With the release of Gutenberg, you can now simply add HTML code blocks directly into a page. So add a HTML block in Gutenberg and paste the script you copied from the Dialogflow console directly into the editor.
Test the integration
When you open the page in your browser, you will now see the chat widget at the bottom right of your web page.
Now click on the welcome message, and you should see the below.

"The magic key I needed as a non-programmer" The custom payload generator was the magic key I needed (as a non-programmer) to build a good demo with rich responses in DialogFlow Messenger. I've only used it for 30 minutes and am thrilled. I've spent hours trying to figure out some of the intricacies of DialogFlow on my own. Over and over, I kept coming back to Aravind's tutorials available on-line. I trust the other functionalities I learn to use in the app will save me additional time and heartburn. - Kathleen R Cofounder, gathrHealth
"Much clearer than the official documentation to be honest" Thanks a lot for the advice (of buying and following your videos)! They helped a lot indeed. Everything is very clear when you explain, much clearer than the official documentation to be honest 🙂 Neuraz T Review for Learn Dialogflow CX
"I will strongly recommend this course because even I can learn how to design chatbot (no programming background)" I think Aravind really did a great job to introduce dialogflow to people like me, without programming background. He organizes his course in very clear manner since I have been a college professor for 20 years. It is very easy for me to recognize how great Aravind’s course is! Very use-friend and very easy to follow. He doesn’t have any strong accent when he gives the lectures. It is so easy for me to understand. Really appreciate it. Yes, I will strongly recommend this course because even I can learn how to design chatbot (no programming background) after studying Avarind’s course, you definitely can!
