Looks great and performs well, but needs more localization. It's Google Search - what can I say? When it comes to the Web, it will find almost anything and because it is embedded deeply within Android, it works flawlessly in this aspect... The localization however, is appalling as some sporting codes (such as the AFL) are missing entirely, whilst other content (such as the television and video cards) and features are "hidden" from (user) view due to the lack of localization, or otherwise unavailable.
For the love of... Updated for current versions: How do we not have a Dark mode yet! Give our batteries a break and utilize AMOLED properly! I'd like to not have my phones screen turn into a flashlight, everytime I swipe to the click bait article Now Cards.. It would be also nice to set more visible article text for preview. I'm almost finding myself banning more websites then reading the articles provided.
Can't turn off OK GOOGLE App is listening for Ok Google in the search bar on my home screen even though the feature is turned off. Latest updates don't fix. Reverted to basic version(fixed issue) and will try again if a new update comes out. Will 5 star once fixed
App crashing at launch The app is crashing at launch after the last update. I am unable to open the app to check cards and weather. I open the app and it closes within a second and I can quickly manage to see there are some new buttons or tabs in bottom. I think that is something new which is causing the app to crash. I have Redmi Note 3 running Android 5.1.1. Many users are reporting this issue. Please fix it asap.
EDIT after 6 dec 17 update: Damn Google, Why the f*ck do you have to change settings when updating apps. This one with settings in the google app itself, Google foto with switching settings to high quality when I had set it to original size... Updates ok but leave the settings as the are!! down to 1* (way to go guys.. Liked it a while back.. damn). BTW.. maybe finally include a way to add interests in the now card settings? NO I don't want to add stock or sports stuff, just people etc.-- Extra edit: the app shuts down now when using "OK Google" speech input. Not when when activated with the microphone button :(
Crash central. Crashes constantly now. It's been doing it a while guess I'm just now really noticing. I also randomly crashes on my phone even when I'm not using it. I guess I really realized how much this was happening after I set a reminder from widget by saying OK Google and crashed every time in 15 seconds or less. I'm fully update on the app and Web view. Only app I have doing this.
