  • I love it so much more than Siri Jul 24, 2019

    By The JMFJ
    For the user that wants it to tell your daily reminders or your whole week at once you can easily add it in your routines. It’s as easy as saying “good morning” and it tells your events for the day. It will send texts and play music and read you the news and tell you if there’s traffic on your normal commute all with one command “I’m up or Good morning”. You can even tell the app that you are on your way home and it will text whomever you have it set up to and or broadcast to the speakers in your house to let everyone know that you you are indeed leaving work. It is so much easier than telling Siri to text each person and telling her 4-5 times just to get “one task done”. Even dinner is ready and it broadcasts to the kids rooms or phones just set it up. This is A+++

  • Way better than siri Nov 23, 2017

    By Iyad Laphir
    I recently needed to do some projects and used Siri it get information hands free, however I found out that it is very limited and only reads info from Wikipedia, I can barely even show some pics! Then I got this app, and I'm impressed by Google answer to siri. The "ok, Google" feature works 99% of the time for my horrible accent and the voice is very cheerful and fluent. Its ironic that a 3rd party application does better than what Siri can do. Information is usually on pint and the new connecting with Chromecast is very useful. This app a nessacity is all iphones and should be kapt in the iPhone dock. Theres is literally nothing wrong with this pp for me other than the fact that accessing it is harder than Siri. This app and gboard is perfect t combination for your iphone.

    This app is almost perfect, I really enjoy Google Assistant so much more than Siri or Alexa, the interface is clean and easy to use, and I actually enjoy using the app and find it fun. However when I ask Google what’s on my calendar, it does not list everything that’s on my Google Calendar, just the things that I have entered through Google Assistant. (For example, if I create an event through the Calendar app, the Assistant does not read or recognize it). I also wish that there was a way for Google Assistant to list all events and reminders when asking about my day. I have to ask separately “what are my events this week” and then “what are my reminders this week”. If there was a way to see everything at once that would be great. All in all, this app is the best personal assistant I’ve used so far and I highly recommend it.

  • Better than Siri Oct 5, 2017

    By The Hankian
    I find the Google Assistant to be way better that Apple’s native solution that is Siri. I think it has more to do with how the information is packaged. Most of the time, the Assistant gives me something from the web, á la Siri, but instead of giving me the oft-repeated and annoying line “Here’s what I found on the web for...”, the Assistant gives me the result in a similar manner to the Top Stories feature on Google Search. I also use the 3rd-party integration much more than I ever have with Siri. My biggest problem with the Assistant is not exclusive to Google’s AI, (I have this complaint about Siri and Amazon’s Alexa as well) but nevertheless, there’s a discoverablity problem. As the Assistant is in an uncanny valley of intelligence, I’m not entirely sure of everything I can do at any given time. I think Google is at a good place of addressing this problem.

    It was working yesterday. Jan 12 2021. It won't activate at all and tried different ways to activate including reboot phone. Thought I might be able to uninstall and reinstall, but no can do. Strange. Never happened before. Using it on OnePlus8 G5. Google Home unit works tho. *Scratching head* Looking for help. If I can't open the assistant app, I can't send you more info or feedback. So plz don't suggest it anymore.

  • What went wrong. Nov 11, 2019

    By cavila55
    I had an iPhone 6s and I used this app with my fossil watch and it worked great. I got my text messages and phones calls and reminders and all. But then something went wrong with this app. I did an update and then it stopped working. I was no longer getting my text messages. Everything else was working fine. So I removed the app and then downloaded it again hoping it would work and it did not not. So then I thought maybe it was my phone because it was an older iPhone and the app was updated maybe there were some changes and my phone just was not getting it due to being old. So I upgraded my I phone to an iPhone XS Max hoping it would work. Excited to get the app downloaded and updated and set up my watch to my new phone and nothing. Still no text messages. I was very disappointed. I just don’t understand what went wrong if it was working fine before. Please go back and check to see what you did a few updates ago that changed to not receiving text messages any more. With every update I have hope that I will get my text messages again and still nothing no text messages coming in. That is the only thing that is missing from this app update and I don’t know why or what happened to stop receiving text messages. Please bring back the text messages so I can use this app again with my I phone.

    Update: I have done every step multiple times and still unable to use app anymore. Now the same response to me and the many with the exact same issues is to redo the steps a fifth, sixth, seventh eighth ... time because the problem has to be user error. There is absolutely no way the App has any issue. Everyone reporting issues is suddenly at fault. Too bad, I depended on it for many years. Now just deleting it since no acknowledgment of the many issues by multiple users.

  • Does NOT work well with Xbox One X Jan 8, 2020

    By shouldvegotpubg
    I downloaded this app because it advertised that you could connect to an Xbox console and use voice commands through your phone to do everything from turning it on to open apps for you. First problem I had is that it doesn’t open the proper game you ask for, for example : “Xbox open Call of Duty Modern Warfare” rather than trying to open the new 2019 Modern Warfare it tries to open the original game Call of Duty 4 for Xbox 360. Second problem I had was even following all of the instructions of putting instant on so you can turn on or off the console from the app it does not work at all. Third problem I had was that it takes anywhere from 5 seconds to 5 minutes for the console and the app to communicate, for example: “Xbox open Netflix” nothing happens for 5 minutes and after you have already opened the app it causes the entire app to restart and kicks you out of whatever you were doing. Overall one of my least favorite google applications to date. Love my google home mini and every other google product I’ve bought has worked great, but this apps usability even compared to the google home app has been nothing but issues on my Xbox or IPhone X

    USE TO WORK!... Won't open when I tap the icon or even tapping open in the play store. None of the online fix suggestions work. It works when I say "hey Google" but lots of times I don't want to talk to my phone (with people around me) and just want to silently type. Lots of other people have the same problem. Gee Google, with all your money hire a few more geeks and fix it. Mine is a Samsung s20+ so I wouldn't think you could blame the phone???

  • Has Potential but Falls Short for iPhone 6 Plus Nov 28, 2018

    By KrogerCouponer
    Does not have the ability to wake from sleep when plugged into my car which means that I have to wake Siri to open the Google Assistant App while driving my car. Does not have the ability to silence my phone or take it off of silence because it is an iPhone. The only time it is useful is in the morning when I click on the microphone and say, “Good morning Google.” At that time it follows the routine. I have gone over every setting and it does not provide the hands free usage which makes it useless. When I ask for it to tell me the weather or traffic, it pulls up the websites. It is no better than Siri in any way and is actually deficient because I can use Siri hands free while driving. I can wake Siri with, “Hey Siri,” while it is plugged in and can tell it to send text messages, read text messages, open apps like music, notepad, etc. Because I use Google for most things, I was looking forward to the Google Assistant but rarely use it and am likely to delete it.

  • Awesome Nov 19, 2019

    By Necy1251
    I have had several shark vacuums throughout the years. I never owned a shark robot. I had gotten a bissell Smartclean one year ago after five months the cleaning and power wasn’t there and Bissell would not honor their warranty. Being totally dissatisfied I began researching robot vacuums I became very impressed with a few of the Shark robots. Finally I purchased the Shark IQ Self Empty Robot. I LOVE this robot. My floors which are carpet, hardwood, and tile all look fantastic and I have three indoor chihuahuas who shed a lot. I would recommend this robot to everyone. The only catch is I have had trouble with the app yet Shark tech support has returned all my calls and have informed me that certain parts of the app are being fixed and will update on December 1, 2019.

  • Goodbye Siri, Hello Google Assistant! 😄 Apr 13, 2018

    By PinkDiamondsMinecraft
    I have a iPhone, and at first when I never knew that I could get this app, I thought Siri was..okay. She never really understood much, normally responded with “I’m not sure I understand” and blah blah blah. But my friend told me about this app. First day using it and I’ve fallen in love. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how you can play games like Freeze Dance and others, it tells WAY better jokes, and it is funny! My favorite is that it responds to emojis. On Siri, if you type a “😃” it says “I’m not sure I understand” or “I can search the web for that”. But with this, it actually says “🙂” back! This app is truly awesome, to whoever is reading this, ignore those bad reviews. This is an HONEST REVIEW, I love this app so much!

  • Amazing! But... Jan 29, 2018

    By Andrew6386
    I love the google assistant! It’s great! However it would be even better if it had a hot word on iPhone. As of right now it only works in the app but it would be awesome if it worked outside the app. But it shouldn’t be ok google because the original google app uses that and they would conflict. It would be cool if it was something like “hi google” or “google assistant” and so on. But over all, this is the best ai experience I’ve come across. It’s useful, open, takes advantage of the google search engine, user friendly, unique, and has a slight charm and an almost a human personality and realistic interface.

  • Better than Siri, but needs work Nov 5, 2017

    By andrewstrauss
    I find Google assistant to be much much better than siri when compared side by side, but it still could be improved upon. There appears to be no way to edit text if the voice recognition gets a qurstion wrong. You have to either repeat the question a few times until it gets it right or type it in manually. If it is just having a problem recognizing one part of a long question, having to type the whole question manually is frustrating. It would be much better to just have an option to edit the one word the speech recognition got wrong. This is annoying, and is soemthing siri does better. This is a total Siri killer.

  • Other than a lack of live support, it is the best, and almost perfect Aug 14, 2018

    By whoisthat1guy
    A recent update caused issues with Routines, which could not be addressed through live support because Google does not offer that for this service. However, after three weeks, the issue has been fixed with the most recent update (which does not acknowledge the bug), returning this to the best digital assistant on the market. If Apple allowed native integration (or even remapping of the power button to summon this app), I would never use Siri. Once an equivalent of Alexa’s Brief Mode has been added, it will be worth five stars.

  • Almost perfect... Sep 17, 2018

    By rixhchris
    I have the date of birth of my siblings on google contacts. Most of my family’s information is on their contact page (birthday, addresses, relatives, nicknames etc.) and an issue I’ve always had is that google assistant doesn’t really take in contacts information. This feature would definitely be helpful but by default this should be disabled (prompt to access contacts) because it’s other peoples information. I hope this feature is taken into consideration and other than that the app works fantastically!

  • Needs to be iPad Native Jan 12, 2018

    By Proteus 846
    Google Assistant is really nice to have on my iPhone and iPad. It does some things better than Siri, some things worse... mainly it’s more fun but less useful than Siri, but that’s mainly due to lack of system integration. My main complaint with this app is that it doesn’t run native on iPad. Seriously, at this point what excuse does an app have not to run native on iPad?? Apple has made it extremely easy to scale apps up for the bigger screen and higher resolution, and for an app with as simple of an interface as Google Assistant it would be rather easy to make it run beautifully at fullscreen on iPad using UIKit and AutoLayout. They could also optimize it for SplitView rather easily as well, which would be extremely helpful when multitasking. I hope they get on that, because it would make this app so much better!

  • Problem with Response Jun 13, 2020

    By Jean AVD
    Today’s response was perfect, however, normally (98% of the time) when I request this selection (which I particularly enjoy), there is a problem. I make the request, there is a positive response from google but it never makes the connection. I wait and wait and then I repeat it all with the same response and again wait and wait and finally it will sometimes connect. Sometimes I give up and make a different selection but don’t feel this should be necessary. I also had trouble with one of your smaller round “auxiliaries”. It would only play one song from any of my Pandora selection and then turned off. I got so exasperated with it, I finally threw it out! No, I never replaced it. Hope this helps.

    I like the setup and news offerings. But my major dislike of this app is that when it is used in conjunction with Google alarms, there is no way to turn it off. The alarm sounds and I turn it off and the assistant starts playing like it's supposed to. But there is no way to turn it off later, without restarting my entire phone. Re: there is no way to send a feedback report unless the app crashes. The 3 dot menu does not provide this option.

    I don't use this app but the Google Assistant is built into my phone. Today, when I woke up, the assistant reverted to the old UI and I can't seem to figure out how to get it back. This is the second time that this has happened within 5 months and it will usually switch back after a few months. It switches back and forth randomly. If it helps I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S10e with Android 10 and One UI 2.5

    I love this app so much, I truly do! I use it for many thing such as work, cooking, knowledge, and sometimes even for fun, but there's a problem...A GIANT ONE I can't seem to ask it some sertain thing, for it'll say "Sorry I can not do this at the momment please get started so that I can get more information to help you" then it brings me to this thing and it has a button that says "Get Started" I honestly really REALLY want to "Get Started" but it won't let me. I've tried so many times and pressed it so many times, but it still won't let me do it. I have even tried resetting my device, checked my settings, updated to the newest version, and I've even tried going to the Apple store. This is how much I really want this to work PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS GOING ON, HELPPP MEEE!!

Also, the voice commands in general just got worse and I have to repeat them. Trying to send a text or whatsapp can be quite frustrating. Need a fix ASAP. What happened in December to make it so bad?

    Doesn't work after latest Android update. Very odd. It just doesn't pop up anymore even with reinstall. EDIT: To respond to the dev, no, I literally can't. The app won't open. As noted the assistant doesn't pop up so I can't leave an incident. I've tried from a shortcut, opening from Google play, opening from apps list, and it just freezes my screen for 2seconds then my screen works again. Literally just freezes indicating a see through pop-up blocks my screen then disappears instead.
