New Search Window
The new window that pops up when you select a search result is ridiculous. It takes up more screen space and you are unable to select the url bar to search there like you could before. Instead, now you must return to the google search results page and type your query there instead. The page url still shows at the top of your screen, and selecting it copies the link instead of allowing you to modify it. This change significantly slows down search time and tab browsing time. Additionally, the back arrow from the top is now gone, leaving you with the back and forward arrows at the bottom, which do not have the same affect as the large back arrow that used to be present. I like this app, I have never had much problems with it, if this change does not become optional or removed I will most likely be removing this app and looking for an alternative, as this change seriously diminishes the app’s usability.

About To Delete This App
I use the Google app pretty exclusively for searches and quick internet answers. The annoyances are getting greater than the help. The search by picture has turned into a vomit of results that just go based on similar color of items, not the items themselves or even brand words. The picture search USED to be helpful when looking for specific items I’m trying to buy. It’d look for that specific item, which was super helpful since sellers use different words and titles in their postings. Google killed that! Now, after the latest update, I’m forced to deal with the stupid predictive text vomit as I’m trying to type. I don’t like predictive or recommended text, so I don’t have those options enabled on my phone. Now, Goggle app is THE ONLY thing on my phone that chucks words above my keyboard that they think I’m wanting to use. Searching for answers on how to get rid of it only ends in frustration and repeated steps of “turn off auto complete” which I’ve already had turned off long ago. I don’t know who Google algorithms is tracking for most of the recommendations of websites, searches, words they think I’m trying to type, but it’s definitely NOT me. 90% of their ‘perfect for you’ recommendations are garbage I couldn’t care less about and haven’t looked up. I’m to the point of looking for an alternate search app that doesn’t give random crap recommendations or force “features” that are unwanted.

Shameless Spyware
Wow, Google has no shame what so ever, does it? Asks for a phone number to create an account, and just look at all the things they track with this app. From finances, browse history, and on and on. They claim that you need to provide them your phone humber to verify you are not a bot, really? Not even close. Google wants all the information they can about you. Not only to track you better, but to make money off of you. People think that Googles makes money through it’s products, and in a way they are correct, but the real product that they sell, their real bread and butter money maker, is the sales and sharing of your personal information. And I am talking in the most shamelessly ways possible. Sadly, you can explain this to people and they still use their products claiming that they have nothing to hide. Boy people have become brainless. Like Edward Snowden once said, "Saying that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide, it's no different than saying you don't care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. It's a fundamentally an un-American principle. And more than nationalism, more than what this country is about, it's a deeply antisocial principle. Because rights are not just individual, they are collective, and what may not be of value to you today may have value to an entire population, an entire people, or an entire way of life tomorrow. And if you don't stand for it, then who will?"

Used to be much better, now no better than average
Google debuted as the search engine that actually worked. I remember first-hand how much difficulty users had trying to find information about anything, and how much effort it took to learn how to ask a question so the search engines of the time might find and respond with something relevant. Enter “fuzzy logic” in Google’s search engine. Wowed everybody. Today it’s now officially worse than the old search engines of the 1980s and 1990s. Today, it no longer seems to follow the traditional instruction sets that used to work on the older, “less user friendly” search engines. For example, if a hyphen precedes a word, traditionally it means the search engine is to EXCLUDE (ignore) that word in its displayed results. So, searching for “dark wood laminate -flooring” should NOT return information about flooring. Yet instead of ignoring or excluding ‘flooring’ information from the displayed results, it seems to now return MORE information about flooring rather than ignoring it. There are other search conventions that were used over the past 40 years to tailor search results, and I haven’t yet looked at them all - but this is a rudimentary convention that is completely ignored by developers at Google, placing it among its peers at the bottom of my competency ratings!

Google - get rid of the blue pop up tips!!!
Have an issue and cannot find anyone at Google to help. Literally EVERY SINGLE time I am on Google on my iphone, these blue “tip” boxes pop up. They contain directions and/or explanations for VERY self explanatory buttons and things on the Google page. For example -I search something like “candy” and then on the results that come up there is an overview of the subject searched. Then there is a blue box that pops up and points to that overview button and says “tap here for summary and general info”. I’m not understanding why Google has to define/explain this button every time I search something. I know what overview means. Or I look up a restaurant and a box forms over the “order here” button on the result page and says “view menu and order food.” If these instructional pop ups only occurred once when I first used Google I would understand but every time I search something there are blue boxes all over the page speaking to me like I am dumb lol. Soooo unnecessary and so annoying. Trying to find a way to disable this but no one can give me any info. I’ve tweeted at them and they don’t answer, I’ve called apple who says it’s Google’s issue but no one cares. Have stopped using Google because of how annoying it is.

Images no longer can we saved unless you go to a website
I’ve use Google for years and preferred over Apple’s Siri search any day but I’m starting to wonder if I should just try to adapt into other Main Street in mindframe’s and ditch google all together. It’s really hard when I know a search engine is doing its best but then it loses those few key features that make it better than the rest. I may have to look into some of the other search engines that allow you to save images because the whole reason I have it on my main screen and I told my mom and many family members to download it was for the ease of access and customizable options. But as of late there was a glitch a while ago that wouldn’t let you save photos it was hard it was like popping up now I won’t even give you an option it’s just photo lens which then searches for the same image but that doesn’t let you save it so all I can think of is to screenshot it which is not helpful. If this gets fixed I’m willing to come back possibly and keep on advertising for what a great search engine it used to be. I really hope they fix this. Otherwise it’s just another search engine…

Useful but self serving
The app blocks the native OS overlay in favor of its own. For example, when trying to call a business from a search, the number that you would press on to initiate a call does not come up. I’ve noticed this when trying to search a highlighted term as well. Usually when a user wants to look-up highlighted text, you can get quick results from the ‘look-up’ option that appears along side copy, paste, etc - however when done through the google app, the app redirects to the look up through itself without allowing the user to leave the google app ecosystem. I understand that there is a need to keep users on an app and maintain every aspect of data collection to avoid unnecessary loss but it feels very manipulative and takes away from the iOS user experience so much so, I cannot make a call after performing a search, leading me to have to switch apps in order to fulfill my request. I understand it’s a competitor operating on Apples platform but, I think they should at least be held accountable even if there is a choice whether to use the app or not.

Google needs some major improvements
Why can’t I contact anyone at Google to help me recover my account? Don’t tell me to use the “Account Recovery Process” because it’s crap. How can I use that process if I had to change my number and don’t have access to the recovery phone anymore? How can I “log in using a familiar device or wifi” if I don’t live in the same place or have the same device anymore? There are several ways I can prove the account belongs to me but Google doesn’t give us the option. I feel like it’s a major security risk to allow accounts to sit with an old phone number that someone else now has. They could gain access to these account that don’t belong to them by simply using the phone verification system. Google should allow customers to call in and answer security questions and allow customers to provide documentation (License, Marriage/Divorce documents, etc) to prove the account belongs to them. This would be a major improvement for Google. Even Yahoo! has a phone number to call to talk to a human and get assistance with account recovery. Please help us Google, this is a major issue & has thousands and thousands of people frustrated!

Only one complaint
Google Maps as an application is great for travel and directions over all. It is accurately interconnected to transit systems in cities I travel to. Easy interface for looking at reviews and information of destination’s. Now the only thing I have to complain about is when you type in your destination for directions is the map auto-fixes to compass 🧭 north, instead of the direction you are facing. For example if I am headed west and fading south the map appears “upside down”. I understand if you use the “live navigation” feature the map corrects itself and relays the information based on current facing direction. As one who loves to walk and wants to save battery life on my mobile device, it would be great if the default for “get directions” without navigation feature would load to the direction you are facing so you don’t have to toggle the map when looking at directions.

I have loved this app
I’ve been using the google app for a long time for keeping up with news cause it’s easy to navigate but I find as of recent I encounter more and more issues when it comes to reading articles as they keep glitching out and bouncing around the screen because ads don’t load in properly, or I will be bombarded with ads that make it near impossible to read the actual article as there’s no less than 5 pop ups at any given time and the option to close them is either nonexistent or so small you keep clicking the ad, pair that with the aforementioned ads not loading in properly and so many articles become unreadable either half the screen is taken over by ads or it keeps jumping around you can’t keep your place, often both and that’s assuming I’m not stuck in a loop of the article refusing to open or if it does load at all without crashing. But the funny thing is if I open the articles in my browser I don’t have these issues, so I’m beginning to think it’s a you problem.

Hum search is worthless
I’m trying to identify a tune from a music box we have. So I get that the music quality is low fi, but this app is worthless for that. Not only does it fail to identify the tune, it never even gave a guess or acknowledged that it couldn’t find it or suggested other things to try - its dots bounced along with the sounds (so I know the audio was active) but then would just quit listening and return to home with no feedback. We then gave several tests using humming, whistling, and singing along simple Christmas tunes to see if we could get it to work. I’m no virtuoso but, from the examples shown in all the Google ads, I think it should have given me something in all the tests we tried. Only once did it give me 3 very wrong guesses for a Jingle Bells whistle rendition. All other tests only resulted in no feedback at all. If you make any sounds it interprets as words (“la la la” or “blah blah blah”), it goes straight to lyrics that are ridiculously unhelpful and ignore any tune analysis. Maybe I’m missing a prompt or a trick to get it to work but I’ve determined the ads must be straight-up fiction and false.

Google Assistant problems
I use Japanese as my second language on everything, and when I opened the app I changed that setting as well, but I noticed I couldn’t change the order of the languages as English stayed at the top no matter what I did. But I payed it no mind as it still worked both ways. I downloaded the app to use the “hum a song” feature anyways, yet when I first opened the app, the button that you are supposed to use for that feature didn’t show up. I closed the app for a few minutes and opened it back up to finally see the button, but google assistant seemed to have lost the ability to understand Japanese and would make my words into unreadable English “sentences”. After trying to fix it for 10 minutes I gave up and decided to make sure the “hum a song” feature was actually working. The circle of colorful dots showed up on the screen and moved when I hummed but nothing happened and after waiting for a few seconds, it would close and show the normal google assistant pop-up at the bottom of the screen. As if I hadn’t pressed the “search a song” button at all. Very disappointed.

Don’t order out
My husband and I placed an order today in celebration of our 1st wedding anniversary. We ordered our favorites and I did hear my husband order what I wanted. Get this, I wanted chicken parmigiana and the 2 side orders for spaghetti. And we asked for extra sauce on the side. I got a bare chicken parmigiana and bare spaghetti and a side of sauce. I won’t get into his screwup cause mine was worse. Came home and saw how screwed up the order was. Called,passed around and Shiela did not want to speak with me (I was getting hot, but it’s not my norm) any further and wanted to speak to my husband ( the usual bulldog). Anyway he got nowhere. I called back and asked for Sheila. And she offered a gift card, which I turned down because all I wanted was for what we ordered. In the end, we picked up 2 sides of sauce and a roll. NEVER ORDER TAkEOUT FROM HERE. It’s McDonalds at the takeout window. You never get what you order. AND there was no reconciliation for what we ordered. Had to heat up cold food and their ‘ reconciliation’. I love their food but I will never order takeout again. Happened 9-9-23, the 1st day of our wedding anniversary. But they me they love too, but didn’t rectify!! Never again

New Volvo
We went to the dealer on Labor Day 2023 to test drive the electric Volvo at the Scottsdale dealer . We was greeted by a very professional sales person who assisted us right away. After driving the car I was in love with it, the style, the performance, and the overall appearance. So me and my husband sat down with the salesman, Issac Favela. We purchased a 2023 electric Volvo. Issac was knowledgeable, professional, and very informative about the car. We also have a great experience with the finance department. Once we finish financing, they had prepared the car to leave the lot and go home with me. The sales consultant went over all the operations of the car and he provided his business card for any additional questions once I left the lot. The entire experiences was a bit long but very thorough and complete. I would recommend this dealer to any, and everyone who wants a good experiences and a great car. Romanie and Samuel

Ask google a question and it might just give you A ANSWER, not THE ANSWER, To your question. I looked up a simple question, “How long is the US” to which it tried to tell me from some random websites Information that the continental United States was 2800 Miles from East to West (which is correct), but also tried to tell me it was 2800 miles from North to South as well. After some searching I found out that it’s about 1700 miles, so why is google telling me that a website, with incorrect information is right? Shouldn’t there be a algorithm or maybe a fact checker that would make sure that your actually giving people correct information? It is absolutely unacceptable that Google, a place where people get there information from everyday, is giving people the wrong information. What other questions do I have wrong answers to because of this. It would be great if when I asked google something it didn’t tell me what might be the answer, I would rather make the mistake myself of clicking on a not so trusted website and getting wrong information there rather than google straight up lying to me.

Suggested/trending searches
Thankful the tab behavior was reverted and now when I search it actually fully goes to the page I want, and I can edit the search from there. Unfortunately, I REALLY dislike the suggested/trending search boxes that are now showing up as suggestions. For a long time I have had a preference set to NOT show me trending searches and this new feature seems to be basically the same thing, so I would expect Google to respect my preference and not show those. (I did not see any new preference that I could use to do this.) I try to search with purpose and I do not appreciate distractions and apps trying to tell me what I should be interested in because it’s trending or new. Attention is a limited resource and those features are a way to steal attention. I typically prefer Google because it is minimalist and doesn’t distract but this is a subtle way to distract and I would like to turn it off asap. Either respect the existing preference or add a new one so I can turn this thing off.

Usually interesting reading but
A huge bug is that when I click on that I’m not interested in a topic, I get a pop up message that Google gets it and won’t show me any more articles about that topic. But I keep seeing articles!!!! Sometimes I even see more of them. Two current examples are Princess Charlene of Monaco and Situation Puzzles. I clicked on a few of each which was enough so I clicked on that I wasn’t interested. The articles kept showing up, sometimes multiple articles every time I opened Google. Just now I opened the app and, out of 37 articles, 5 were about Charlene!! I keep saying I’m not interested but I keep seeing these articles. Enough already!!! Another annoying bug is that, when Google is refreshing the articles, if you’re reading one, it freezes and you have to exit Google, reopen it and go to Tabs to find and continue reading the article.

Get Google Chrome Instead
In short, why this company has two browsing applications is beyond me but chrome is far better than regular ole google and way more user friendly to those exposed to safari and looking for a widget to shake up their boring old home screens. In long, I downloaded google for the widget which I really liked the look of on my home screen but the features of this app compared to safari our lacking. I would often find features that were on safari that weren’t on google or didn't work as smoothly, such as the transition from incognito to regular browsing or simply going back and going forward while searching. If I went back too far google would send me to the original search screen with no way of going back to what I was just looking at. These, amongst other things, are minor, but they add up in the long run to make the users experience horrid. However, the google chrome app is a different story, it’s nearly identical to safari and in many ways better than it.

Hasn’t Yet Earned 5 Stars
At one time in the past, when I typed in my search argument, if there was a misspelling, Google would offer up the correct spelling, eliminating the need for me to correct it. In some cases, where participles or familiar words were involved, Google will reconstruct my argument with the correct grammar. I would sure enjoy those days again. Even now, when I’m typing this review, all of my misspellings are corrected. Why can’t Google offer that option when I’m typing in my search parameters? Google once did have that option, then took it away. One other annoying thing about Google: whenever I’m searching for a report or article, Google displays first the results it wants me to see, often biased, forcing me to scroll several pages until I find what I’m looking for. This is a nasty habit and one which stirs up conversations in Congressional circles about “reforming” Google. Google is an important research tool, very important, and Google employees shouldn’t be allowed free license to transform such an important research tool into a one-sided echo chamber for specific ideologically-oriented groups. I’d rather see Google as completely neutral in that regards. Making it neutral, without certain biases being introduced, goes a long way to earning that fifth star. Thank you.

Wow- A great dealership and a perfect sales woman for purchase of 2024 greyhawk 30Z
An experience we will always remember, worth 10 stars working with Amy DeCamp the most knowledgeable of all aspects inside and out. I cannot thank her enough for her patience with us as we worked through years of finding the right time for us financially as well as the right product to meet our needs. My husband was beyond impressed with her knowledge of the Rv industry as well as her orientation for us. The entire staff was ready to respond to our every need and made sure that it had been reviewed 100% to perfection. We have found nothing in our two weeks of ownership that has been of concern. We have found a new family with them and encourage everyone to give them an opportunity, (near or far) to show what they are capable of doing for you. Dave and Kathy mathews

Lotte Hotel New York
My husband and I moved my son from Texas to New York for college. I booked a room at Lotte Hotel but the parking garage would not accommodate my husbands truck which is 7 ft. 7 inches. After driving around for 2 hours to find a parking garage we were faced with having to leave Manhattan due to no parking. I actually canceled my hotel reservation and was upset that I would not be able to spend the 2 days with my son that were planned. When carrying luggage back to the truck the doorman George noticed our dilemma and went out of his way to find an open parking lot that could accommodate our vehicle. I was so grateful for his assistance. I tried to tip him for going above and beyond to help us but he would not accept the tip. He is one of a kind and should be recognized for his kind actions. He even stopped traffic to help me cross the street. What a gem!

Addiction machine
So my 3 year old son downloaded this app. He spent hours on it, using this “Google” thing. He spent 47 hours a day on this thing. He stopped sleeping… His screentime was maxed out as well. So i tried to put a stop to it. I walked in his room, while he was using it. I asked him “james have you ate anything today?” He stared at his screen. The room had a cold breeze chilling my neck. The fear i felt in this moment is indescribable. My stomach churned as the glow of the screen lit his face. The room was dark, the only light was from his ipad. I decided it was time to end this. I peered over his shoulder to see what he was viewing. The… “things” i saw was… horrific. He was viewing a place called “Reddit.” The top left corner read “r/cocomelonHentai.” The images i saw were horrible. He turned to see me behind him. Gun in hand i pointed the barrel at his head. “Im sorry…” I pulled the trigger 87 times. 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥.

Images No Longer Lets You Save
Have had the app for years and through several different phones and this has never been an issue in the past, but as of the last week or so, Google Images no longer lets you download pictures onto your phone. There had been a popular glitch in the past in which you’d have to hold down the image with one hand, wait for the save image popup, and click on the screen with your other hand and hold it down so you could select the download option without it disappearing, but now even that option has vanished and been replaced by some Google Lens feature to inspect the picture instead along with an “images may be subject to copyright” popup (I thought that might’ve been the issue but no images can be saved, not just copyrighted content). It’s very frustrating since looking for reference photos and such to save to my phone was one of the main functions I used the app for and I hope it gets fixed soon.

In response to the user “TwacyRad” your rant was absolutely ridiculous and a waste of everyone reading its precious energy. Not to mention I just lost at least 6-7 brain cells just fighting the extreme urge to use googles app/image search to search your screen tag and well that’s another story! Anyways!! Nobody really cares about your sensitivity to light or the painstakingly long rant about you and your crap. I too now am sensitive to light,sound,and movement and probably have some anger issues that need valium due to your boring long rant about you and nothing about the app itself?! PLEASE JUST PUT THE MAC,iPhone,and,IPad down! Clearly your “SENSITIVITY” to light has burned the retinas connecting to your brain and you too seem to be down a few brain cells?! Yes you are the minority at least that much you can “SEE” in the dark or the light mkay? GET A HOBBY LADY!

It’s not a good look
I have submitted feedback several times in the past few weeks. Absolutely no response, nothing. I sent screenshots of Google Chrome errors. It is been a nightmare on my iPad, as well as on my iPhone in the last few months. Tabs won’t close tabs don’t open, and Safari pops up and locks my browsing i’m going to Google or KrHall like it has for the past 20 years. Incognito messages pop up every two minutes. It’s ridiculous. You have got to do something for these people who have choices in our digital life. But the choices are getting larger and more compatible. If you can’t keep up with your users and technical issues, then don’t advertise that you are the best at everything. And your feedback is just telling us to go through help. I have gone to your help section probably every day for the past year for different stuff. 60% of the time I Find My answer other times I go in circles. I know how to change my settings in every part of my Google account. So please don’t tell me to do that. Thanks

It would be my favorite search engine BUT…
I’ll be honest, a world without Google is a world in which I don’t want to exist. I mean, you can find anything, and I mean ANYTHING on Google. It couldn’t get any more awesome than that, right? Well… It could. The fact that the Apple mobile version of Google doesn’t allow one the capability to download PDF’s/EPUB’s in order to view them, makes Google a little bit lame. If I had a dollar for every time I had to switch to Safari (🤢) & look up the same exact thing just so I could view a PDF, I’d probably be able to buy Google right now. (Maybe an exaggeration, but it’s occurred so much so that I felt very compelled to write this review) I personally rate it an overall 4.3 stars, as it has such potential to be the greatest creation since sliced bread. If only I could view my PDF’s…

New update ruined Google
Ive used google as my primary search engine for a while, but Ive always needed a second. A huge problem has always been the ability to download images or lack thereof on the Google App, they fixed the issue around 2019-ish. We were going steady when the download image feature was seamless, you hold down the image and a pop up with the words ‘download image’ appeared. Not anymore. Its been replaced with an annoying Google lens feature and a useless image source pop up with download image no where to be seen. We are all aware of these feature and the image settings or three dots at the right hand corner would be an adequate place for them. Forcing Google lens onto your users as some sort of quota made your app an afterthought and inferior to the Safari app. Not to mention Safari has a better ‘Tabs’ system. I would recommend the Chrome app which is less user friendly but way more competent than this worthless app.

I hate google
It’s nothing wrong about Google. It’s not like I don’t like using it. It’s just about my Google account. I was under age for my Google account and obviously they got mad and threaten to delete my account if I didn’t get a parent supervisor account and of course I did it thinking that I would get all my videos and comments and stuff like that back thing is I didn’t get it back but now I cannot post videos nor comment it makes me mad because I have 119 subscribers now I just have to stop and wait for two years until I turn 13?! that’s out rages. My parents do not care if I make Videos or comment on videos could you make this like a Settings so that parents can turn it on or off? This is annoying. I hate you google this was my dream to become a YouTuber. I was hoping I could become a YouTuber but this just hurts now I just have to restart this brew in my dreams I can’t keep getting back up and trying again. I get that it had to push me down, but why the dumbest reason to push me down

iOS Widget Issue
Love the iOS widget for the Lock Screen. However, when I select the widget, the app opens and the microphone screen comes up and google is listening. That’s perfect. When I ask a question, google dictates the words I said perfectly but the response is “something went wrong. Please try again”. The words I said are still listed in the search area so I just have to hit search and it works, but it should just give me the answer without the “something went wrong” response. It seems this only happens when the google app is not already open. If the app is open, the widget and app work perfectly. UPDATE: The update I received today fixed this issue. Yay!! I’m so happy! Now I can ask Google something from my iOS lockscreen instead of using Siri

Feb2023 feedback: new (i+) button is a bad experiment
there's a new (i+) button in the bottom of tabs. it brings up "related searches" and "info about this page." it is app bloat, full stop. i have never gotten (and don't anticipate ever getting) to a page and needing a or wanting a shortcut to more pages like the page i'm currently on. if it's not quite what i'm looking for, more alike results aren't going to help me. i need to refine my query and look at the main results i got on the search results page. if it is what i'm looking for, i don't need to find more alike pages, since my need is being sated by the current page. it has zero relevant functionality to browsing. but it does cramp up the previously well spaced button array that was there previously. the home button should be center. if google is very married to this (i+) button, find somewhere else in the UI to put it instead of central to the experience. i suggest putting it as a sub-function or submenu pop up of tapping and holding the url bar. that's intuitive (as in "of course i should learn more about a page if i hold down on the url") , it becomes completely hidden from the UI, and it relieves the button crowding happening at the bottom of tabs (which, as of 2/6/23, is clumsy and aesthetically poor with the (i+) button). the app has enough features surface levels features. this new button is a detraction from lithe browsing.

New UI is Worse after latest update
I have always been a avid google user, and always preferred the google app over safari. however, this latest update has made me have an extreme uptick in my use of Safari. the new way to view webpages is not user friendly, and glitches very often. i often find myself losing the page i was on, or getting kicked out randomly. also, it is near impossible to begin a new tab without over riding an existing one. multiple times i am trying to input information from one site into another, and it end up closing one when i try and switch to the other. it’s infuriating. these bugs need to be fixed quickly, or i may end up making the full time switch to Safari as my go to app.

Not a robot page??? I’ve pressed no but it doesn’t go away
If I use the same browser after 3-6 searches it won’t load and takes me to a page that asks if you are a robot when you press no it doesn’t go back to the browser it just takes me to another are you a robot page and I have to close the app out open a new tab and click the im not a robot button at least 3 times before I can use the browser again. I can understand if it took you to the robot page then once you click your not a robot it should take you back to the original page but it doesn’t do that it makes you do all this work to make the page go away and makes the experience annoying I don’t want to be directed to that page all the time juts to do the same stuff to make it go away just for it to appear again please fix it somehow

Linda Gordon and friends!
We love this quaint restaurant whether we eat outside or dine indoors. The staff is always friendly and upbeat and happy to see you! The Food is prepared fresh and served beautifully! If we don’t eat there at least two times a summer our summer is not complete! It’s not often a quaint restaurant like this takes reservations! We enjoy how the manager makes this possible! And it is a joy just to watch Kevin , the table busser, fix up the immaculate table decorations and clean linens and keep your class filled with beverage before you even miss a drop! Of course is very popular during the Tulip Festival so I urge you to go another time when it is not quite so busy! That way you can enjoy the lovely gardens that you see as well as the food and surroundings!

Ruined by one pointless update
Seriously, what is this popup garbage? Now going to a website is like clicking a link in instagram, which pulls up some temporary pop up browser, it no longer feels like using an actual internet browser. You can no longer change the url, clicking on the url just copies it instead of letting you change it. Instead, to go to a new site you either have to completely go back to the home page, or open a whole new tab and clutter the tabs page every time you want to make a new search. Whoever made this change seriously needs to be fired, because they must have some serious mental disability and clearly aren’t capable of having this big of a say in a company. No mentally capable person would genuinely think that removing core features of a web browser is a good idea. Turn google back into a web browser instead of this wannabe instagram browser trash, otherwise you’re going to have barely any users.

It is a good, but there is some issues
There is many google glitch that I constantly keep on seeing, like google being SUPER slow and keeps on acting like we do not have internet, and it is Xfinity, and I say Xfinity is really good internet in my book. And this REAL annoying glitch it is what I call the no pictures glitch because when you take photos IT ALWAYS SAYS “could not save image” and you know what I have to do to fix that, DELETE GOOGLE, yeah I would say that is a real annoying glitch, but I don’t know what causes this may cause my phone is outdated, because it is a iPhone 6 or but please google fix this glitch please, because I do not want to constantly DELETE GOOGLE, and when I mean constantly I mean every night, if you where me, you would probably feel the same as me, annoyed, the glitch is getting on my nerves and I hope it will be fixed.

Going downhill
This is rather sad that I can get onto google and search something but when I want to see photos of said search I can’t. The fact that they removed the ability to look at images on mobile is rather stupid and needs to be changed back to the way it was. The new search URL is also rather inconvenient because I should not have to scroll and click a button in order to search for a item or photo. Those on mobile should be able to just search the item or photo from one engine as it was in the past. This app has gone downhill with many of the updates or “Bug Fixes” which being more inconvenience than help. I believe Google should remain the way it was in the past when one could search for a website, photo, or video and have the help of the little bar at the top they could click. If you read this Google fix your browser please.

Disappointing Image Scanning and Redundant Features
I recently tried out the Google app and found it to be quite underwhelming, particularly in terms of its image scanning functionality. Despite promoting this feature, it failed to deliver accurate results consistently. The app's inability to reliably scan and recognize images led to a frustrating user experience. Moreover, beyond the image scanning feature, the Google app offers little added value compared to simply using Google's website. It essentially replicates the browsing experience, making it redundant to install the app if the image scanning feature doesn't work effectively. Considering the primary selling point of the app falls short, it begs the question of why one should bother with it at all. Until Google improves and refines the image scanning capability, I see little reason to recommend this app over using the reliable and well-established Google search engine directly through a web browser.

Oops. Something went wrong
I would rate this app higher but oops something went wrong, I'll try again later. When the app works like it should it becomes my go to for news based on categories I like. However, it takes a long time for a story/topic you're not interested in to be removed. If I'm not interested in sports, it shouldn't take weeks of removing every article related to sports to finally be removed. Most of the times a few articles will display and going to the next page just results in " something went wrong ". I love this app but it's the most frustrating one I have installed. Reinstallation does not fix the issue. Lastly if I do a random search I now have to open chrome private browsing because this app will "think" I'm interested in whatever I searched for, thus starting the loop cycle of trying to remove articles I'm not interested in, all from one random search.

Google Sign-In Broken In App
I'm used to using texted codes for 2FA. Fortunately, Google still lets me do that. The idea of depending on some password manager that contains a key that I can't access if something goes wrong doesn't appeal to me. This time, though, I decided to try a different option that Google provides, which is to open the Google App and verify my identity. So, I downloaded the app and gave it a go. What happened, though, was that the text in the screen was highly zoomed, and locked in place, making it impossible to scroll, in any direction, to wherever it was on the screen that I was supposed to do the next thing. Until that bug gets fixed, obviously, the Google App two-step login option is dead. As for the app itself, it seems to be a decent search engine with some additional features.

Slowly deteriorating
Google was great, but the issue is that minor inconveniences such as taking Google Search off iMessage is really annoying. From there I could do a quick search or a location to send much quicker via text. Not anymore! Another thing, the app gets slower and more cluttered with each update. I do not use Safari as much due to the fact that it feels “heavier” and more cluttered, but now I’m seeing pointless news articles that are absolutely irrelevant to me as an individual. All of the data mining and theft your company does, and you can’t even match my interests? Even if you could match my interests, you wouldn’t be able to do it because you are Google. Furthermore the articles are pointless anyways because of the News app and third party apps that I can download. Slowly but surely, Google is turning into a lesser search engine like Yahoo or Bing.

Bug: New articles not opening in new tab
When I open the app and see several articles on the Home Screen, if I try to open 2-3 of them, they start to open on top of each other in the same tab. This wasn’t the issue few releases back. With the latest release, I had 11 tabs before the installation of latest version, and not I have 2. Rest of them mysteriously disappeared. Seems like with each new release, a perfectly ok working app is getting worse n worse. I truly believe new version releases are not required all the time just to keep an app going, especially if they are going to introduce bugs and other issues for the users. Let the app be, unless the developer have really something that they want to introduce. Otherwise, they’ll start to lose users just because they released a new version with more bugs than the bug-fixes.

Song hum feature
Every time I say “what’s this song” into the microphone it takes me to a google search of instructions on how to use the feature instead of actually performing the feature itself. I also can’t find the “song search” button after exploring the whole app, despite the unwarranted google search telling me there is a button. Going to have to rate a 1 star and uninstall the app for faulty software and false advertising. Unfortunate considering this is a cool idea but it seems to have been executed very poorly. I would suggest actually putting a button there instead of lying to your users, and making it so when I say “What’s this song” it performs the actual advertised feature instead of taking me to a google search. Seems like a simple and obvious fix. Hopefully you all can get back to me and let me know if I’m doing something wrong, if the song search button is hidden somewhere strange in the app, or if the programming is just completely inept.

It used to be good, but now, from what I'm assuming was an update, made it into an overall inconvenience. The websites you want to open do not open into a full screen. At the top of these web pages is a pull down button—like on an iPhone that drops down notifications and reminders—and it completely takes away the main back button that used to be an arrow. Because of this, whenever there are pop-up ads on a webpage, you simply can’t just go back to the webpage itself, but have to completely exit it altogether. Another thing is that Google will constantly refresh itself when you leave. This is fine when you leave the app for a long amount of time but if you have a webpage open and close it for a few seconds or a minute, then it will completely refresh and you will loose whatever it was you were doing. Also, Google listens—and watches—to everything you say and do.

One thing that annoys me …
I receive notifications through many channels some I follow down their rabbit hole others I delete. I followed one this morning about iOS options and how to keep or turn them off. So, the first one about turning off phone call banners made me go look and change the way the call interrupts my work flow (if any). Then once I was done in settings I went back to … oh no, wait. Google decided I should go back to the very beginning of my opening Google! What, where the heck was I? Now you make me go back to … oh where the heck was I (before I submitted this review.) WHY CAN’T you leave me where I was in my review of, whatever link you sent me to?! If there’s one thing I hate is software that makes me have to a better short term memory than it does! Can you people at Google, quit playing games, read this and make your supposed search app more User-suppotive?

It's getting worse tbh
I have used this app for a while instead of safari because I just trust google more. But recently its been hiccuping and I can't stand it. One thing is that it won't let me change my picture. I don't know why and I want it changed because its an old picture of me. I will click on the icon and I will tap the camera on the profile picture and it will say "you can't change this profile picture from this account" but the problem is I have before. Also I've had this song stuck in my head so I tried to use the "find song" feature on the app and when I tap on it the dots will show up for a few seconds, like its trying to find the song, then it will go back to the home page. It is getting really annoying and I'm about ready to quit using the app (even though I liked using it) if these problems continue.

Freezes, stalls, stops for 45 seconds HELP!
Freezes, stalls, stops for 45 seconds HELP! I enjoy Google but I might or will dump them for bing.. why? The Google app on my new iPhone and/or old iPhone is super buggy… I have uninstalled and installed and still to no avail… I am totally not happy because I use google to look up the latest stock news outside of Yahoo Finance and CNBC.. Another thing, if I read just one tiny Kardashian story, I would get 10 more KimK stories or similar suggestions.. I dare not read about my fav reality shows and that’s all I see.. not cool or if I read a funny story from India or other countries.. it’s all India, London or Africa topics afterwards.. When I pick subjects I like on purpose in settings, about 50% will only show up along with some random stuff I didn’t sign up for … But the biggest problem is the constant freezing and stalling for 45 seconds straight.. Help, Help, Help, Help!!

Stay Away From Google
They’re growing too big for their own good. They act like they have a right to shove all of their content and whatever else they decide is a good idea into your face. And no, you can’t manage what they notify you about easily. You dared to search for a sports team? Clearly you want to receive game recap scores all the time about them, with no way to turn them off! There used to be a simple way, but they updated that out. It’s no longer there. Clearly, just holding on the notifications you don’t want and turning them off that way was too convenient for users, and led to too much getting turned off that google didn’t want. Now I’m stuck choosing between getting notifications I actually want to hear about while also getting something I literally never asked for, or no notifications at all. Such a great system, fantastic evidence that the company cares about your interests, and not theirs.
