There's NO way to mute or shut off the voice responses of the GO version. So it will automatically and loudly read out whatever response it comes up with if you ask a question, even if the phone is on mute. I know how to disable it for regular Google Assistant, but that ability and setting seems to be totally cut out of this version. Please Google, it's a basic feature; you don't want a phone making noise at all times no matter what. Fix this.

Thanks for your review, Jim! The Google Assistant is enabled by default as one of the system apps and currently cannot be disabled for Android Go phones. We appreciate the feedback and we’ll pass it along to the team.

Super easy to ask Google a quick question when something comes up in a conversation or when you are doing your homework if you are to lazy to type something in to the calculator. Contains no ads unless you go onto a website with ads. When you first go into the app, though, you have to wait a second to be able to speak even if it says you can.

Since the update, there was one thing that I didn't like. The voice options I had, when I say change your voice, than it gives me 2 voice examples, and then if I want more voices, then it says to go to Google assistant settings. If I ask open Google assistant settings, than it will say,"sorry I'm not set up to help with that", so I don't know the point of having that option. And also the voices that I have are not nice
