Finally getting great Originally the voice control didn't even compare to Siri but everyday I notice it getting new features. This now answers most of my questions I ask in a hurry, which is great since it used to always just open a Web browser search.
Nicer Logo and Interface Liked the cards displayed anyways. Reduce the RAM intake also. Now the Google logo shows up in the notification bar when there is an update. Offline searching is useful and finally web pages opens in the app itself. Doodle new design is great. Trending searches in an area has been added
Stagnant The content chosen is often within one or two subjects that you recently clicked on, often repeating articles even though already read. nitpick: When I mark something as not useful at the moment, the article isn't replaced by something new. Bug: after the last update, there is a notification of a "search pending" that I can't get rid of. Cancel will not get rid of it, can't dismiss it, even by restart EDIT: there's a setting to manage pending searches but doesn't change that cancel or tapping is broken
Bloated & ugly, getting worse with every 'improvement' Another google app that is mostly a waste of space wrapped around a small core function, now even more tasteless in appearance. The new app layout is really poor. Please let us have more control over our devices. Also, stop giving your apps the right to steal more info than really needed.
Causes conflict with some other programs.. I have never qppreciated "programmer wars", this is no exception. I have found it competes with other software/apps and that makes for a "less-than-enjoyable" experience. Just wish they would all work more at compatability!
Slow to search and Laggy when you enter text it can't keep up. And Annoying bug.- keyboard gone and still slow compared to chrome search When you swipe up the get Google search you no longer get the keyboard but instead a prompt to sign up to Google now which I don't want. Extra press required to bring up keyboard... Annoying. Quite laggy and slow still struggling to keep up as you enter text. Would like to be able to filter results by time.. Like you can on normal google search.. This week / this month etc. Voice actions laggy now too
