Integrating Cloud Natural Language API in Android

In this blog, we will learn how to integrate Cloud Natural Language API in Android application.

Natural language processing (NLP) describes the interaction between human language and computers.

It’s a technology that many people use daily and has been around for years, but is often taken for granted.

While NLP has uncountable use cases and benefits, some of the cases where NLP can be used are :

Well still if you want to learn more about NLP, then you can start understanding it by reading from internet/books and there is a lot of material available.

Now let’s have a look at what exactly is “Cloud Natural Language API”?

Natural Language uses machine learning to reveal the structure and meaning of text. You can extract information about people, places, and events, and better understand social media sentiment and customer conversations. Natural Language enables you to analyze text and also integrate it with your document storage on Google Cloud Storage.

Now, let’s see how we can use this Powerful API and include it in our android application.

Before we begin:

You will need to create your Google Application Credentials in a JSON file format.

If you are new to using Google Cloud Platform, simply login with your Gmail account over here –> https://console.cloud.google.com.

After this, keep this Credential JSON file with you, we will be needing it very soon.

Approach:

The approach to complete this integration is quite simple and easy to understand.

 

 

Let’s quickly start with the code.

CODE :

Firstly, add the lines below in your module-level build.gradle file (Path to the file –> Project–>app–> build.gradle)

 

AccessTokenLoader.java class –>

main_activity.xml file –>

MainActivity.java file –>

We have successfully integrated the Cloud Natural Language API in our Android application.
