No going back to siri 5/5
I replaced Safari, Siri, Mail, Maps, iTunes, and many more with the vastly superior ecosystem of Google products. Now if only Google could figure out how to make a descent phone.
Won't recognize my shortcuts anymore 2/5
I prefer Google assistant and it was working great.....but it no longer recognizes the shortcuts I was using????
This thing is great!!!!!! 5/5
By Ok Cupid.
This thing is great!!!!!!
why not a iPad version？ 3/5
app is in beta! 1/5
you must manually delete each activity which results in a cluttered screen. the my activity page won't delete your assistant activities either.
Searching is very limited. Results are usually not spoken but randomly are. I get better results with the Chrome app as far as voice reading our loud. This version is not even close to the original version of Google Now for the other OS.
As usual, way too many bogus positive reviews posted or by barely educated morons. Uninstalled.
Better than Siri 4/5
The Google Assistant can do very many more things than Siri and is very good, the reason I did not give 5 stars is because I cannot say “Okay Google” while audio is playing through my phone. Fix this issue and I will give 5 stars.
Siri Killer 5/5
I gave the new and improved Siri a second chance. Google Assistant still reigns supreme!
Very Smart,Fast,And Easy
Better than Siri 4/5
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.
If only Apple integrated this app 5/5
By Dah doob
I have a bit of an accent and it takes Siri a couple tries to understand me. Google on the other hand understands me 100% if the time even when I mumble. I use googles ecosystem even while being an Apple user so it’s easy to use this app to set reminders and shot a destination to go somewhere. Please interstate this Apple 😭. Apple makes the best phones but google apps are awesome. Apple + Google = love ❤️
Bad update - 3/5
I can’t add rooms for devices. I can go through the motions of it but it doesn’t save. Fix please !!
I like it 5/5
I like google assistant because it’s faster than Siri. Yes google assistant can’t open apps or other things Siri can do but it’s more reliable for me. Ever since the new update I feel that Siri has gotten slower. This is my opinion and others might disagree but your opinion is your own opinion. So I rate it five stars.
Please fix this! 2/5
Whenever I want to ask a question. Google Assistant takes me to this game that wants me to play. It's very annoying and I almost got in trouble for that. Can you please fix it. Thanks!
Not bad 2/5
By bardia yasari
It ain’t bad when you have somthing just to make time pass this is something that siri can’t do but in other aspects siri is very better it undrestands me better than google i love siri❤️❤️❤️
Compared to Siri... 5/5
...which never understands anything I'm saying except for the simplest terms, i.e. call blankety blank, Assistant is absolutely superb.
A reviewer mentioned it does not take you to maps app, but if you use the words, "navigate to" it gives you an embedded directions map, then a choice to open up in the Google maps app if you wish.
it's helpful to ask "what can you do?" as there were many tasks it can do that I never would have been aware of.
Siri best 1/5
By Javad Shi
Very nice 5/5
I guess there is some small improvements in the new of keys to assistant is still very nice and everything it does
Better than siri 5/5
The best assistant on a smart phone ever.. i has all the features that siri can never ever do.. not quite compatible with iOS but an excellent choice on android.. and its also useful on iOS 10/11 while creating a widget in widgets section..
No Watch app 1/5
By Nick Maja
I can’t give it more than one star because it doesn’t have watch app
Doesn’t even work with Google’s own music app 1/5
Despite having settings for using Google Play Music as a music app it doesn’t actually use it to play any music or playlists it wants to use YouTube or Apple Music.
No GoogleVoice support 2/5
It has better voice recognition but if I can’t text using GV what good is it?
Great app love it! 5/5
Keep the updates coming
Waaaayyyy better than Siri 5/5
Please give Google assistent a try even if you are a diehard Apple fan. I was amazed by its functionality and its more human voice.
Love it! 5/5
I've been waiting to use Google Assistant for such a long time! Finally I have it! 😊
Google baby 😁 5/5
Way better than Siri!!
Best assistant 5/5
I can actually talk to my phone and have it do stuff for me. Siri is garbage.
Best virtual assistant on iOS 5/5
This is better than Hound Cortana and Siri all together the best virtual assistant on iOS better than any other app.
It even was manners!
Like "thank you"
Love it! 5/5
I know GA can't be perfect, I mean talking about integration 100% with iOS echo system, but for me is fair enough. I'm completely happy with his or her performance 😊. I hope you continue adding more languages, Spanish would be wonderful, that would let many Spanish speakers enjoy a lot all the capability GA could bring in their iPhones.
Arabic language 5/5
By Saud allkmi
Please add the Arabic language
Simply wow! 5/5
This is the only app that saves time and improves productivity. Period!
Google is so much smarter than Siri & Bing 5/5
I like being able to text or speak what I need.
It works fine, but it's pointless... 2/5
We already have Siri to do everything this app can do. Maybe this could be useful for Android but not iOS.
Changing the language 1/5
the default language is French on my iphone :/ , i can't change it to English
i love google so much, but can i use this on a Mac??? i just got this thing
No Landscape Mode? Really? 2/5
By Mr. EJ
NO Landscape Mode? Really? In this day and age? Thats a minimum expectation. HHCTB? Delete!
App bien utile, avec une proposition… 4/5
Ce serait bien de pouvoir changer la language de l'assistant comme Siri. Merci et j'attends vivement la prochaine version de l'appli.
Allow manual set language 3/5
By Bryan Kuro
Please let users choose the language they want to speak to Google Assistant.
My phone is in Japanese, but I want to use Assistant in English.
is unable to connect to my calendar.
Needs IPad optimization 3/5
Needs horizontal landscape mode for iPad then I'll be happy with it. The widget is useful but needs to be perfected
Almost Tops..... 4/5
There are a few things it cannot do as well as Siri like make direct calls or send direct text. But as for many other functions it is faster and better than Siri. The widget is worthless and I sent in feedback about it. Lastly, the web browser needs landscape support.
Newest update 3/5
Ditto on the Unable to Download App message. Also the widget is no longer working properly.
I. LOVE. This. app. 5/5
It's finally here - and there is so much going on- just get it and play. wish this app could replace the useless Siri. Hmm.. "hey siri, open google assistant." 19 seconds later.. "my web search for open google assistant..."
Update problem possibly? 4/5
I was updating all my 5 apps and this was the only app that wasn't able to update. It kept saying "unable to download app" not sure what the problem is. The app itself still works I'm just unable to update it.
Very good app when you need information fast!
Very helpful app! 5/5
The Google Assistant app is fantastic, smart, funny and very helpful.
Only one little problem. The size of the app described in the app store is about 70 MB. BUT when it installed on my iPhone 4s, it shows more than 120 MB. My opinion is, the little, the better.
Not reading calendar 3/5
By Darth Los
I love the app but it doesn't read my Google calendar app on the iPhone (which syncs to the Apple calendar anyway). It will say I have nothing on my agenda for today when I really have several things on my actual calendar!
Notifications NEED to be consistent and reliable 4/5
By Just another iSheep
I had written a long, informative review about Assistant before iOS simply wiped the entire thing due to a half second device lock, but anyway.....
Long story short: you need to improve reminder notifications. They need to be consistent and reliable. I experienced this same issue with the Google app back when it handled reminders; I'll set a reminder, but never get notified about it. If I'm going to be trusting you over Siri, you need to fix this now. I don't know if it's iOS' still terrible notification system (if it is, just say so), or if you're dropping the ball, but I can't be missing my reminders.
seriously no iPad app?? 3/5
Finally here... 5/5
After I heard about this wonderful release, I sold my Samsung phone and went back to my favorite, an iPhone. Hope it gets more integrated and flawless with time.
Really good app 5/5
This is far and a away the most accurate voice assistant when it comes to voice recognition, at least in my case. There are some limitations like the fact that we can't wake it up by using a catch phrase. But I have a feeling that has more to do more with IOS and the restrictions that apple puts on developers. Which it has better integration with native iOS apps too. But when it comes to actual searches it is much, much better than Siri. A real shame I can't use this as the default assistant.
