Neat but lagging far behind. Needs a lot of work. Its frustrating, and kind of silly that Gemini will flat out refuse to answer any number of benign questions and simply say "I'm still learning how to answer this question." More robust and "smarter" integration into the overall function of our phones. Thank you for reading! Edit: assistant has gotten better, it can now play a song from scratch. I just asked it to play whatever song and it usually opens YouTube music. Before it wouldn't do that.

This used to be an amazing app. But soon, the program completely stopped working. Setup ran again for some reason and was broken. Voice recognition was also broken. Even trying to open it doesn't work, nothing is responsive or responding. Edit: it works now but responds whenever I say anything 10 seconds later. Or just doesn't respond as well. Which forces me to just open the app straight up. Edit: it works now. Probably just an error?

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......
