- no whitelabel branding
- you cannot show clickable hyperlinks
- it does not support images
- you cannot use it to show buttons
However, there is a way around this. Using some custom programming, and by taking advantage of the Actions on Google rich responses implemented by API.AI, you can get all the features mentioned above.
The video below shows what it can look like:
