What you'll learn

If you are not familiar with APIs or Application Programming Interfaces you can think of them as ways to connect data sources and perform external actions. For example, you may want to pull from a weather station API to get today's forecast. Or, maybe you want to connect to a digital SMS API to send or receive text messages.

In this tutorial, we'll explain how to use Voiceflow's API integration by linking it to this free joke generator API which will pull a random dad joke for our voice assistant to say.
