Only 3 stars. So far, this app has not met my expectations. It seems to work when it wants to. Sometimes it responds to a simple request IE: "open new tab"; or "open calendar", but not very often. I have yet to be able to make a hands-free phone call. Even though I set everything up so that assistant should work automatically, I find myself having to reset the program each time I want to use it. Definitely frustrating!

Hi there, thanks for reporting this issue. Have you tried these steps to retrain the voice model (See "Teach the Google Assistant to recognize your voice" section): If that doesn't resolve the issue, please create a post in our Google Assistant Help Forums for our experts to assist: Hope this helps.

Amazing assistant honestly, it rivals every single other assistant ever. But it's not 100% perfect, because there is ONE bug I have, which is where the voice will, for some reason, change back to the original voice (which is not the one I use). It is kind of annoying, but it doesn't happen very often, but it still doesn't make me call this assistant "perfect." If it was fixed, this would be perfect. But this is still an incredible assistant that can do soooo many things. 9.5/10, best assistant.

hello all. i have been a Google /nest user for years with little to no issues. suddenly in the last few days, all of my devices will say "sorry i can't help you with that" have cleared cache, un-installed assistant. nothing. some devices work, some don't. no rhyme or reason. this happens in all hubs, phone, watch, everything. the odd thing is some things work, some don't. this is across all devices, switches (kasa), as well as nest devices. it happened after I signed up for Bard.
