The best ai
To be honest this works a lot better on Google pixel why because it’s super fast and very creative and acts like a human she has the best thinking and skills if compared to ChatGPT pro google Assistant takes this one just because of the machine, learning detailed answers and just better overall very open minded but on the iPhone, it seems a little bad but on the Google pixel top gold actually move to the Google pixel seven Pro. It was cheap unlike iPhone but also gives a nice display and features but also if you compare iPhone to all the androids I say iPhone would win overall but Google Assistant on Google pixel 7 pro is probably the best assistant ever by the way, way better than character AI and signing up is just too easy and easier on the Google pixel 7 pro

What went wrong.
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.

Lists
Overall the app is great, but I live off of my lists. I wish you could customize them a little bit more. With the grocery list a lot of times the items fall under the incorrect category. Even when they are named correctly. Just a small thing but irritating when at the grocery store having to scroll through the list over and over again to make sure that I’m not leaving an area of the market just to find an item on my list as I get towards the end of my shopping. Would be nice if you could pull/rearrange The categories according to what you would like to see first. (Example: when I walk through my grocery store the order is; vegetables and fruit, bakery, meat, dry goods, cereals and breakfast, baking, snacks, dairy, frozen.) I personally would like it better if I could rearrange the categories according to my walk through the grocery store. It would just be less stopping and scrolling in the isles. And I wish it wouldn’t allow me to duplicate items. Sometimes you forget that you already added bananas to the list… We have an Alexa as well and she says that it’s already on the list and does not add any duplicates. Again, I really do like the app it’s just personal preference from features that I appreciated from other apps and some feedback.

Needs improvement
While i think it works fine there are interactions that I don’t like. For example, having to say “hey google” every time. I’d much rather just be able to say “Google, turn on the lights”. Also many times I will say “hey google” and wait to see if the devices heard but they never have any feed back, like “yes?” Or “how may help?”. Adding these makes it feel less like I’m just talking to myself and more natural. And when it hears the command it always should repeat it back such as “Okay, turning on the lights”. Also the app has a significant delay in communicating with devices. It needs to be sped up a bit. Also not being able to use the app while my phone is locked is a huge down fall. I currently have a shortcut set up so I don’t even have to touch my iphone. Simply say “hey Siri” “turn off the lights” and through the shortcut in the iPhone it communicates with google assistant and is the equivalent of saying “hey google turn off the lights”. However it currently only works when my iPhone is unlocked. If it isn’t the command either fails or ask me to unlock the iPhone which defeats the purpose it all.

Does NOT work well with Xbox One X
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

Has Potential but Falls Short for iPhone 6 Plus
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.

I love it so much more than Siri
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+++

Siri who?
seriously, google assistant is way batter than Siri and Alexa. shes so helpful and has so much personality which is kinda ironic for a bot. shes fun and i love her use of emojis and sound effects. the only thing i would suggest is that google gives her a name or nickname, like how Siri and Alexa have. when you ask “whats your name?” or “what can i call you?” she simply says that her name is Google Assistant. i have tried asking if i could change it or give her one but its not something they allow you to do. i feel like she should have an actual name (because saying “Google Assistant” is a bit inconvenient and i'm sure everyone else would agree) otherwise we should have the option to give her a nickname just like we’re given the option to tell her to “call me ___” or “my name is ___”

Calendars!
This app could REVOLUTIONIZE how I use my phone and automate my home. But, my work uses Outlook and thus I need to use outlook calendars and events and this app just won’t handle that. It also won’t sync with any iCloud calendars. It only works with its Google calendar which is absurd seeing how even the Google Calendar app will work with all other calendars. But because this app drives the Google nest hub and will only work with one calendar form, that means I cannot use it for my nest display, or my “Hey Google”, or my Google routines. I still have Siri around, but I don’t have a hub and screen for Siri! I have the Google hub and screen, but my calendars won’t work. I hate everything. We are well into the new century, we can figure this one out. Either Google makes an app that reads app calendars for their hub, or Apple actually makes a hub. I don’t care who does what. Just somebody fix it.

Could be improved
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.

Way better than siri
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.

Amazingly better than Siri
If Google assistant has the IQ of a Mensa genius, Siri has the IQ of a turkey. It’s unfortunate that a 3 trillion dollar company such as Apple (that overcharges us for everything) has the malice to interfere with the normal functioning of Google apps on iPhone. For example, the microphone often has issues activating Google assistant. This has been going on for over a year, and it is an issue with iOS. Since getting an iPhone my ability to use voice dictation has been reduced dramatically due to Apple’s subpar voice recognition and buggy software. I miss my Google phone immensely.

PLEASE add setting to keep assistant from repeating task back to me
It’s so annoying and surprising that Google didn’t think to add a feature in the Assistant settings for this. If I ask my Google Nest to turn off some lights, I don’t always need to hear “GOT IT. TURNING OFF THREE LIGHTS.” It’s even more obnoxious if the speaker is set loud and it’s nighttime and you’re afraid you’ll wake someone up. There should be two separate volume adjustments—one for the Assistant’s voice and one for music/media playback. I like Google’s products but it’s really an oversight that they’ve never implemented this. It’s probably intentional but it really ruins the experience using it sometimes. Would feel way more like an Assistant if it just did the simple task and didn’t redundantly repeat the task back to me EVERY time. Maybe have a ‘Brief’ setting that gives shorter confirmations, and then one that’s just silent. And then the regular setting which would be what it is now.

Needs to be iPad Native
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!

So far Google assistant is working very well but there are some problems I have encountered
I must say Google assistant is working much better than the way it was a few months ago it’s a lot more responsive on the iPod touch 7 running iOS 15 however there are some problems I have encountered like for example sometimes when I open Google assistant it will not use dark mode sometimes it will accidentally go back to the white light mode and it hurts my eyes when it does that sometimes it will go back to dark mode which also happens a lot on my iPad mini 5 running iOS 16 which is quite annoying sometimes you need to fix it as soon as possible I do not want to hear no excuses.

How to edit my weather notification subscription?
Google assistant do not understand what I am asking about editing/removing weather notification. I could not change/setup the time for weather notification. There no remove/cancel option for notification at specific time. Also notifications works randomly at whatever time assistant wants to sent you a notification . I set weather notification for example for 6:00 pm everyday, but I got notification at 11:17 am , or 4:26 pm, and never at 6:00 pm. So pathetic app. The only one way to fix weather notification is to use for this purpose Google Pixel. Same problems with random notifications I have on all android/apple devices. So I just removed this app from my iPhone. Problem solved. Google cares only about your searching data and locations you’re moving/visiting. Google overall don’t care about your needs.

Better than Siri, but needs work
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.

The little things always forgotten
Googles assistant to s a hot mess, making so many mistakes,like not catching on to small but daily idiosyncrasy s of mine , what I need it TO DO FOR ME. worse than in uncaring spouse that I almost don’t want it. It doesn’t listen ….oh let me sum it up. It’s taken on the personality’s of the creators I’ll bet. Talking back, not listening, refusing to cooperate with repeated SAME question, if it doesn’t LIKE the question , refusing to obey orders it’s spoiled and fussy and often falls asleep when I need to to wake up, won’t until I practically knock it off the table by accident touching the screen that hard. The Google Assistant , my first one has way less uncomputer like personalities. , like a wrongly picked partner who was nice at first and then it’s real personality comes out and it’s mean sloppy rude and not even that smart. I want a divorce.

Problem with Response
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.

Amazing… with so much more potential
I remember back in 2015 when I was working on the google search team on the “sound search” feature, and the team beside us (who was working on the google home) let me try out one of the first versions of google home. I was blown away. I dreamt of being able to do this stuff as a teenager- coding x10 lights to turn my lights on and off so I would actually wake up in time for my classes. Now I just told google “talk to myQ to close the garage door” But somehow. Bc we recently turned on content filters so our kids couldn’t simply watch any YT video, google replied with “I can’t talk to myQ while the content filters are on” Really google? There’s sooo much potential in this to become a platform of choice My kids who can barely touch type have been able to ask google type search questions and learn information bc of this google assistant I wish it could learn faster…. And be more customizeable

Amazing! But...
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.

Unreliable, but has potential.
I take eye drops twice a day, a need to keep my eyes closed to absorb the drops for 5 minutes. I start off with “hey google, set timer to 5 minutes”, and it works well some times, giving me a “ding, ding, ding, ding, ding” when done. However, after 3 to 5 days, is stops responding when the timer pops. The only solution, so far, after an hour chatting with Google support, is to delete the app and re-download and install. I’ve been through 6 iterations of this cycle. Siri is dumb, compared to GA, but it works consistently with timers. I’m done with you, GA; I’ll try Cortana or Alexa.

Everything Home/Assistant related has diminished in quality
I have owned Google Home (I guess Nest now. Google likes to change the name of its products and services a lot) for 3-4 years and it seems as if like many of Google’s projects, they are putting it out to pasture. But this is a review on the Assistant app. Every time I open the app, and I do mean every single time, I have to immediately close it and open it back up for it to accept my voice request. Open the app, the microphone gives me the visual queue that it is awaiting my prompt, it does not acknowledge my prompt at all, I close the app and reopen it, then it works. After that initial annoyance it’s ok.

5 stars 1 request
I’ve put 5 stars here because I think the assistant app is great. I have only one request....that they figure out how to let you change the reminder alert tones. It’s very convenient and quick to voice command a reminder for any time any date (even if it’s a year in the future, but the only alert tone available when you get your reminder is a 1 second chirp and it only chirps once. Pretty easy to not hear it. Please update the app so there are more reminder alert time options including repeat alert after 2 minutes. THANKS!

Fun app
I downloaded Google Assistant app almost by accident. I didn’t even really start using it, it started using me. Started giving reminders for stuff it shouldn’t even know. But after clicking on to it a couple of times it got to point where I was on it daily to multiple times a day. How it has all the information it has is amazing. I’ve been reminded of birthdays and payments that were due and numerous other things. Sometimes it is a life saver. Reminding me of birthdays, anniversaries and more. I really enjoy the daily fun facts and jokes. I highly recommend it.

I can’t believe how this assistant isn’t worth a zip
First off this assistant Is worthless and I don’t understand how anyone gets any kind of help other than the stupid erroneous repetitive answers constantly given. At least Siri is honest and only knows how to respond with “I don’t know” to everything. Ask a straight forward question and get such stupid answers so far from the main topic of the question is just not acceptable. In a way it’s a good thing it’s a stupid bot because I would not stop till I found it to prevent it from causing anger and frustration ever again to anyone else. Better yet it’s not necessary to throw your phone against the wall. Freakin ridiculous!! If your looking for a good test to determine your anger and frustration level I strongly recommend getting assists you’ll find out real quick.

Come on Google. Still no 3D Touch option for voice search on launch...?
The only reason I use Cortana over Google Assistant (and even Siri): Google Assistant still doesn't have the option to enable voice search/microphone on launch. I know you can say "Okay Google" but that's just an uncessaey step in my opinion. It's probably because Google hates Apple. Really though this lacked feature needs to change. The lack of a quick Google voice search upon laughing the application or a quick 3D Touch limits it's potential and functional abilities. Atleast Cortana can be launched with voice search/command right away. Although they're smarter than Siri, saying "Hey Cortana" or "OK Google" gets old. Sometimes when I’m in a hurry it's nice to quickly launch Siri or Cortana and get an response right away. I don't always want to Type to Assistant... (And correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure Google Assistang once offered than slowly removed the voice search as a 3D Touch Option for Google Assistant, shortly after the application became available.)

Latest update still doesn’t work
Requires a daily reinstall. App will open, but touch is unresponsive. Only uninstall will work. I depend on this app for everything around my home. iPhone 12 pro. I wish I could replicate the steps or send a bug report, but the app doesn’t register as unresponsive. Just won’t accept touch input and I can’t do voice commands. I tried to circumvent listening to news via the google home app, but it sends me to the assistant app, which just remains frozen. Seems to most regularly happen after connecting to the Bluetooth in my car, or pairing to a non google Bluetooth speaker. Other than that, completely unresponsive until a reinstall. All permissions are enabled. Would love to send a log file to help.

Google Home is Awesome!
I think a lot of people go into these systems with crazy high expectations or set their system up backwards, like buying cameras and the a smart home system and then are disappointed something doesn’t work the way they wanted. For our current level of technology, I have been VERY pleased with what all Google Home has to offer. The Google Assistant is there to remind me of upcoming appointment, researching topics, music...etc. I intend to get my mother a couple of smart bulbs so that she can start utilizing hers for better security when she comes home.

The best Assistant
Even before I had an IPhone, the google assistant to me was pretty great, the fact that it had games, and a variety of sets of things it can do aside from setting alarms, checking the calendar, the nearest restaurant, google maps and stuff, it was a whole bright amazing experience. But then after I started using an iPhone, I discovered more reason to love the google assistant even more, to the point that I am even downloading it on my iPhone right now because it’s way better.

Hello, I would like to start off by saying that I have the google home as well. Truthfully the google assistant could use bug fixes/improvements on the fact that it cannot respond and or process multiple sentences at once (ex. Would be asking it multiple questions in one sentence.) Also can’t define government descriptions . Such as (ex. Policies or laws.) last but not least is the hassle of always having it plugged in. It isn’t portable. Billion dollar company but won’t listen to what the people want. Smh lastly is the display on the google assistant app. I think it should display porous of why you're describing or little-handwritten examples or drawings. That is all. Peace out🧐

Frustrating
The worst part is not being able to delete their stupid default “Routines”. Or at least give me the ability to disable them and hide them from view. Really annoying having to go in to each one and remove all the actions just to make them obsolete. Yet I still have them cluttering up the interface. It’s also very frustrating to need so many different Google apps. Why do I need Home and Assistant just to get some smart plugs to turn on and off. And then I need the Nest App to control the thermostat. What a clunky way to make things “smart”. Google needs to streamline all this for iPhone users. Of course, this problem would easily be solved if Apple wasn’t so stingy with its licensing, allowing for more third party hardware folks to incorporate HomeKit.

Stop Spiting each other Apple & Google
The application itself works great and I’d use it so much more than I do, if Apple didn’t restrict the use of Google apps on their devices - especially wearables. Once there is a decent wearable market, I’m jumping ship from the iPhone and iWatch (I like them well enough on their own, but I need my virtual assistant to see my diary and calendar and nothing can unseat Gmail and Google Calendar as the best). In short, stop fighting with each other Apple and Google - I want to be able to use my Google apps easily on my Apple devices.

Great Alternative to Siri
This is my go to when Siri isn’t functioning properly. I love that it provides a Snapshot of upcoming bills, events, ETA for my route to work, etc. The only things I’d recommend is creating a Snapshot shortcut on the Google app or even as a standalone or a widget for the Snapshot feature and also adjust the settings for Google to be an automatic default assistant for text messages whenever Siri is malfunctioning so that the assistant can send hands free texts and allow the user to be safe if driving or be able to perform whatever it is they need to do.

Other than a lack of live support, it is the best, and almost perfect
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.

Lots of promise--some bugs
Very much enjoy using this app. It replaced Siri on my phone for many tasks, including sending text messages (voice language recognition is much better). Nonetheless, some buggy app behavior forced me to abandon it for the time being. Most annoying in my case was a bug interrupting music etc everytime I was on Bluetooth in my car. Assistant's voice would break in with something along the lines of, "Sorry, I'm not able to do that right now, you can do that on your phone." Over and over. Once I removed the app, this behavior stopped. I'll wait for a few more updates before trying this out again.

If you understand how to use Google Assistant to its’ full capacity, you will be impressed with what it can do. I find no competition out there. It is a learner AI, so part of ur interaction/relationship is your own responsibility how it develops. Like anything else, the more you use it, the better you both get. If you wan to bark orders, expect not to grow just the same as any human relationship you are rude to. I love it and look forward to developing and learning all its capable of doing with me. Bravo Google Team!! Much apprech of you efforts.

Use it everyday, but wish it had more
I really love the Google assistant and it would be a dream come true if it could be my default assistant. However, I feel like this app could give me some more info on my day or some more controls over my household. Also, the really weird interfere for googling something though this app makes me never Google through it anymore. Also, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DARK MODE!? I want dark mode in every app, and I was so excited when we got it here! Please bring it back! Anyway I really do love the Google assistant, just wish this app gave me a bit more.

Siri has no purpose anymore
When I first got this app, I loved it. I never had a google home or anything, but I guarantee this is better. Like, everything in one place. I love it SO much. This app is probably my favorite now, because it is so organized and easy to use. Plus, if u want to talk to Siri you have to activate it, and do all that stuff that will waste your time. I can find dinner recipes, translate, and do all that stuff. I know I might sound like an ad, but I’m just telling u the truth.

Almost perfect...
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!

GREAT...as long as it works
I absolutely love this app, but far too often it seems to be kind of frozen when I first started so I have to close it and then re-open it and then it works, and it seems to need a lot of data for some reason which doesn’t really make sense since all it really does is a Google search and that should not take much brain power from the phone. It may have to do with how I have an iPhone, and sadly google and Apple aren’t friends, so us customers have to pay the price of their squabbling

Good, but restricted by apple.
I love Google assistant. I use it in my home for home control, alarms, questions, etc... However the app on iPhone is restricting. You have to go through steps of opening it like a normal app (I know that's just an Apple thing) but what gets me is reminders and directions. I'll use my Google home to set reminders to do something but my iPhone will not pop up with that reminder at the location or time I chose. Likewise, when I ask for directions it says "I sent them to your phone" but nothing ever come through. I use to be able to get reminders and such on my iPhone but they do not come through anymore like they are supposed to.

List is harder to use after update
Catch up one of the primary things are use Assistant for is my grocery list. Prior to the last update it was easy to use and easy to find but I cannot open it from the main screen any longer I seem to have to use voice commands in the grocery store and checking off items is hard to do and added more steps and frustrates me every time I try to bring it up the rest of the app I would give five stars but since this is one of the primary things are use it is becoming harder and harder to use with each update

Way smarter than Siri Thank you Google
I’m new to having an IPhone and have been recently annoyed by how limited Siri is Google is way better for all kind of reasons Google will literally answer any of your questions as accurately as possible and fulfill almost any requests immediately don’t matter how complicated or specific the question or request is I appreciate google so much thank you Siri needs to step it up

Needs a lot of work
Way better than Siri for all the functions that Siri does ... search, texting, etc. I wish they would stop redesigning the entire UI every couple releases though. But when it comes to Google Home integration it’s awful. Buggy. Crashes when editing Routines. Cannot even create new Routines. Very little works as designed in terms of home automation or integration. Don’t know why this app comes up when I choose ‘More Settings’ in Google Home app. More awful app integration from Google. Guess I’ll wait to see when or if Google fixes the millions of bugs that make their product only function at about 5%. Do better.

No longer allows results to launch in Safari
I found myself cheating on Siri. GA was so much smarter - granted, not as pretty. She was so much better at making me happy with search results, but then she changed; she got complacent and lost her train of thought. She used to let me take what she gave me and go over to Safari to dig deeper and save searches. But then she changed. Total bait and switch. It’s like some Chrome user didn’t like that Safari was able to play along, so she gave in to them and now she’s just no good to me. I hope you come around GA. I hope you come to realize the error of your ways.
