Swiping from the bottom left corner of the screen is awful. Rarely do I get it the first time. Usually opens another app or I just drop my phone entirely. The voice to text button being there too is not great. The quality of voice to text seems to have gotten worse over the years as well... Make it so you can choose where the microphone button is. I like the old spot above my keyboard. And make it so I can long press home for assistant. I don't wanna google search stuff in a circle......

No longer works! Attempting to use the corner gesture or even opening the assistant directly from the app list no longer does anything. It just crashes immediately or something. Checking the other reviews, I'm not the only one with this problem. This is a huge part of my phone and it no longer works. Pretty hard to take Google seriously anymore. They are becoming dinosaurs.

It does a lot and it's fantastic, when it works. Far too many bugs considering the amount of money, time, research, and development that's gone into this program. The texting feature is always hit or miss and often texts someone other than who I specifically mentioned. This has led to very confusing situations. It's wonderful to use when the routines, songs, GPS, etc. work! It just doesn't work, so much of the time.
