- Follow the normal setup instructions to get it online at your vacation rental
Add the Vacation Rental Virtual Concierge App
- Ensure you have the Google Assistant app installed on a phone or tablet, and that you are logged in with the account that you created for your vacation rental.
- In the Google Assistant app, say "talk to the virtual concierge". The response will be "Before you can use the virtual concierge, I need to link your The Virtual Concierge account to Google. Is that OK?". Saying yes will initiate the process where you can sign in with that same account.
