CMS Integrations

Learn how to use a CMS for your Alexa Skills and Google Actions with the Jovo CMS integrations.

This feature uses the Jovo i18next integration to creat localized content with specific features for voice and conversational experiences:

  • multilingual apps
  • randomized output
  • platform-specific responses


The content of the CMS interfaces is by default retrieved when the Jovo app is initialized (e.g. when the server starts with jovo run or when the Lambda function does a cold start) and then stored into the app object (learn more about app data here). This is configured with the default configuration caching: true for each CMS integration.

For some use cases (like testing), however, it might make sense to retrieve the CMS with every request. You can enable these instant updates by setting the caching option to false.

Learn how to enable this option in the documentations of the available integrations above.
