Can I integrate and use Openhab 2 and Google assistant (GA) in my phone even if don’t have a device like google home or alexa??

I understand this question was answered but I found this(copy pasted below) in requirements for openhab and google assistant.

Google Assistant Action

Google Assistant is Google’s virtual personal assistant and uses Actions on Google as the platform for “Actions” (software applications) to extend the functionality of the Google Assistant. Users engage Google Assistant in conversation to get things done, like controlling their devices and things at home. You can use the officially certified openHAB Action for Google Assistant to easily manage and control your smart home by conversational experiences between you and your openHAB smart home powered by voiced commands.

This guide describes step by step how to use the openHAB Google Assistant Smart Home Action. The openHAB Action links your openHAB setup through the myopenHAB.org cloud service to the Google Assistant platform (for technical insights, please refer to this guide to read more about setup options and development information).

With the Action you can voice control your openHAB items and it supports lights, plugs, switches and thermostats. The openHAB Action comes with multiple language support like English, German or French language.
