Google Assistant: Your Hands-Free Helper.

Get instant help with everyday tasks using just your voice. Google Assistant makes it easy to:

- Control your phone: Open apps, adjust settings, turn on the flashlight, and more.
- Stay connected: Make calls, send texts, and manage emails without lifting a finger.

New! Now you can also opt in to Gemini (formerly Bard) from Google Assistant and have it act as your primary assistant from Google on your phone.

Gemini is an experimental AI assistant that gives you direct access to Google’s best family of AI models unlocking new ways to assist you, while still incorporating many of the actions you love in Google Assistant today.

While some of the actions won’t work right away, we are working to support more coming soon. You will be able to switch back to Google Assistant in app settings.

Gemini opt in is rolling out to select devices and countries - opt in to Gemini from your Google Assistant or by downloading the Gemini app.

It was working perfectly every day... Now, after a recent update, (when it changed from the 3 colored dots to the colored bar), the app crashes everytime I push the button. An app that's completely broken is useless. Update: it's gotten worse, it doesn't even activate now, no matter what I do. Reinstalling didn't help. The article didn't help. The Community forum ignored me. I need Assistant to set medication alarms, and now I can't do that!! Update: Assistant crashes when I try to send feedback

Assistant has become entirely useless. Delays, wrong information, and for whatever godforsaken reason, they've turned off the ability to set reminders through assistant. It's hot garbage, it used to be mediocre at best but now it's just completely unusable and has zero utility. Good job, Google, you have a running streak of absolutely decimating your most useful products for seemingly no reason. Bravo.

Assistant used to be an efficient AI that could mostly follow any command. With Gemini, it's basically useless. Trying to use assistant to change the music while driving? Crash. Ask it a basic question? That's a 30 second delay and possibly a "sorry, I don't understand." The final straw for me was asking it to remember where I parked and learning it marked me a half hour walk away. I couldn't imagine what would have happened if I wasn't familiar with the area. Please, we have to go back.
