Google Assistant isa 5/5
Siri killer at. Max take that Apple
Great , but app is flakey 3/5
Google assistant is way better than Siri. Only issue is that when using 3D Touch as a shortcut to use Assistent by voice, there is no voice recognition once the app opens. You have to close the application ( actually close the app, not just close and reopen ) in order to get voice recognition back working
Good but no local news 3/5
I am very disappointed in Google Home for not having the ability to customize the news. And I totally understand why. Google, the website, has a section where you can customize news. Why does this not tie in with the Home? Amazon Alexa has a wonderful interface for customizing the local news.
Amazing assistant 5/5
By Did indent
Understands all the questions
I bought the Home Mini under a week ago and since day 1 The home many acts is if I summoned it with the “hotword” when I didn’t. More users are having the same problem. I already packed it back up ready to drive it back to the store before the grace period ends
Good for people trying to get a feel for assistant before getting a google home. Also it is useful to control things like lights on you phone because apple dose not support as much smart home products as google.
By Yogibear 20
I downloaded it on iPad and it looks weird....like it is scaled for tablet but the app is designed for iPhone. Is this normal?
Better than Siri 5/5
By Sandra the iPhone
The Google Assistant is all around much better than Siri. It's sad Apple hates Google so much that we can't get system level integration, because that would draw much more people to the iPhone.
So so 1/5
This application could be good but the problem is it’s very buggy when you open the application nothing happens and It just sits there trying to load. When it works it works good.
Love it 4/5
I love using Google Assistant! I didn’t realize how useful it was until I got a Google Home Mini for Christmas! Now I use it for just about everything! There is hundreds of things you can have your assistant do and the phone version is the same as Google Home! The only down side is I wish you could use voice activation on the iPhone, but that’s hardly a deal breaker for me!
Better then Siri 4/5
By Angry birdssssdjwiqodjebwkaid
But there should be a specific app for iPad
Just saying 5/5
This app can't run native because it's by Google. Apple already has Siri so why would they need another "app" that works better (especially if it got integrated) and has way more sources. Google is clearly better in a lot of ways. Not saying ALL the ways just like 99%. But once again, apple owns the Siri "app" or whatever you want to call it. That's why it's not integrated.
Needs an iPad app 4/5
By One fitz two fitz
The most disappointing thing about this app is that it didn’t work on my iPad. That is extremely painful because I own a pixel phone so if I want to use my iPad to control my google home and chrome-cast. Other than that google is killing it in the smart assistant interface and works way better than Siri.
So hard 1/5
By angry with google
I found the google home mini to be so hard to set up we have had it since Christmas 2017 and we still don’t have it completely or at all figured out do something this shouldn’t be so hard when I figure this device out maybe I will put in a better review
Do not support iPad 4/5
By Sayo Melu
Please support iPad
Apple Watch support 4/5
Please allow an integration with the Apple Watch. This would be ground breaking.
No iPad app 1/5
By Alijah Simon
Nobody on iPad wants Google Assistant, apparently.
Google Home stopped working 1/5
Google home stopped working after update! No access to troubleshooting, no phone number to call, nor customer service in any way!
It’s good but.... 4/5
When I used Google home it was really good I can hear music and everything but it’s been 2 or 1 mouths.now I can’t listen to music due to YouTube red now I’m like “WHY”😭 plz don’t put YouTube red I wanna listen to my music
Awesome but connection issues 3/5
Google home is great when its working but I have to consistently reset my Chromecast for it to sync with my phone. It would nice to get home and it just work the way its suppose to.
Native iPad Support 3/5
Why do you need access to my device information? 2/5
By Dharma Prema
Why do you need access to my device information? I don’t want to give you my contact information. That’s too much intrusion of my privacy. Yes it is good, no I won’t give you permission. Therefore, good bye assistant. You already know too much about me... go monetize something else, not my contacts info.
iPad Support 5/5
This is awesome for Google Assistant to be used in Apple products. Only drawback is that it’s only supported to iPhones. Please add iPad support with full screen.
Using iPhone and Google Assistant Device. It allowed me to sync contacts and music etc.... I can only use it for pandora, web, and news. Can’t make calls, texts, calendar events, timers, alarms.....pretty much anything you would need it for!!!!
Way better than Siri 5/5
I have only used this a few times but I already know it is way better than Siri. The app gives you actual answers. Siri always gave sites to look up for the answer. I will be using this app a lot more than I ever used Siri.
Amazing! But... 5/5
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.
Lacks native iPad resolution support 3/5
Seems strange to not have the app run on an iPad.
Better than Siri 5/5
Better and more accurate than Siri
Make it work on iPad 1/5
By Alven Riakio
Make it compatible for iPad.
“Updated the app” 1/5
So, what did you update? I wish Apple would deny updated apps like this that says NOTHING about what changed?
Could be great 2/5
Google assistant is fantastic at answering questions and that’s about it. For home automation is has the serious flaw of not knowing which room it’s in, even when you go through the effort of assigning it to one. If you say “hey google, turn the lights on”, and you are standing in the kitchen talking to a google home that has been assigned to the kitchen you’d expect the kitchen lights to come on. Alas you’d be wrong, for every light in the house will turn on (assuming all lights are connected to some sort of smart hub). By contrast, Alexa nails this correctly. Siri behaves like Google, having no concept of a Siri listener assigned to a location.
Beyond this, Google assisting fails at certain tasks if you’re using a G Suite account. For example, it cannot read calendar information from a G Suite account. This is baffling since Alexa can. Google wrote assistant and G Suite... how does Amazon support this and Google doesn’t?
It boggles the mind...
If google solves some of these extremely frustrating problems, the platform will become a lot more compelling, as the conversational component does feel a lot more natural than any other assistant.
Awful Smart Home Integration 2/5
By Squatting Hen
I am extremely frustrated at trying to have my smart devices work correctly with Google Home/Assistant.
I have numerous devices all setup with Smartthings, including ceiling fans, lamps, outlets, and light switches that all work with voice commands.
I have been using Alexa for a while now and have not had any issues operating my smart devices, but I did purchase 6 Google Home Minis, with the intention of moving form Amazon to Google. Unfortunately, if what I am experiencing can’t be corrected, I will have to abandon Google Home for Smart Home/Smart Devices.
What I am experiencing is that Google is grouping all of my “lights” “lamps” “outlets” together. This needs to be optional, or we need the option to be able to select which lights/lamps/outlets we would want in this group.
For us, if someone says to turn on the lamp and accidentally forgets to use the name of the lamp, all the lamps turn on. Same with a lights, they all turn on or off. Completely unacceptable.
People sleeping are being woken up because of this. We have kids and if they say turn on my lamp instead of the name of the lamp then all the lamps/lights turn on. All of them. With Alexa, if you don't say the name (or group you create) it will let you know more than one device shares that name, which one did you want? You can then clarify. With that, no unwanted lights turn on or off.
Is there something I am missing? This can’t be right? If so, Google developers must not utilize smart home devices. Or the only have one of each device.
Good, but restricted by apple. 2/5
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.
By Kevin Goodrich
Great app 5/5
It's definitely better than Siri but I wish I could say okay google in the app.
Nice, but I think I'll keep Siri. Google is great on Android, and Siri is great on iPhone! I use Google Assistant on my Android devices.
This is awesome but 3/5
Every passing iteration of this app that does not have support for Apple watch annoys me. Google Apple work it out already. You all need each other
Great app!! 2/5
By an iDevice user
Please add support for iPad
Please develop an Apple watch app 4/5
Please develop an Apple watch app
iPad Version 1/5
A great app but there’s no iPad version so don’t use it.
Needs to be iPad Native 3/5
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!
I have tried linking my alarm.com account AND my Uber account and the google assistant internal web browser will not complete the link to the respective account. I have performed all app updates possible, I’m on the newest iOS software version, and I have verified that my log in information is correct. Very frustrating after setting up multiple google home devices throughout my house!
Best thing ever 5/5
I like it because it understands every single thing I say in my Indian accent
Needs improvement 3/5
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.
Update feature on google asst 2/5
I really the google home features, I believe if you guys inc the similar on to this app it will help people under stand the use of the google home speaker into their life
I know it works for me
Device overheating what for?! 1/5
iPhone 8 gets too warm even when app is in running in background. Removed after just couple of hours. And phone temperature returned to normal.
This must not happen with google developed app. Care to explain Google?
Expect better from Google 1/5
Overly bloated and no iPad support. This app and Google Home and "the Google app" should be rolled into one and slimmed massively as those 3 apps are a bigger download than Quake III. One star from me, for now.
Unable to connect Hue lights 2/5
I sign in to Phillips and it circles and circles and then it says “something went wrong, try again”.
Every digital assistant is equal 5/5
By bashir the clown
The Google assistant is equal to Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and Bixby. So shut up all you people that are saying that the Google assistant is better than other digital assistants.
Better than Siri but Android version is much better. 5/5
By Agent Cobalt
Very well disigned Asistant.
