Whenever I plug an aux cord into my headphone jack, ok Google pops onto my screen telling me Big Brother's listening to me. This is super annoying and stops my music from playing. I have combed through every setting and internet forum to find a solution but it no luck so far. I don't want Mr Google to shove his face into my life every two seconds, I just need his help for the occasional search. Please give me an option to turn off Ok Google completely! Full Review

The app used to be much better. I would get only the reports from the teams I follow. Now, I need to cope with 50 news stories that I never requested and that are not interesting to me in the least. I spend a lot of time clicking"not interested"in all the news stories. Also, I used to be able to see the sports matches that were already finished, so that I could see recaps, and now those are gone. Bring back the better version of the app so I can give it 5 stars again. Full Review

Since I used the google pixel 2 xl, I've been using "hey google" quite often.. and I'm loving how fast and accurate she performed.. but just Abit minor touch up on voice recognition to names.. apparently after making her pronounce the name that I want her to call she still heard the wrong name.. for e.g. I wanna call "kadim" she called "Edwin" and when I tried "Eddy" she called "Ong".. hahahah Full Review

I advise people waiting before updating to new 12/15 update. Screeching when trying to use speech to text using my Bluetooth. Google knows this (if they are reading their issue forums) because many of us are having this problem with the new Hey Google assistant update. Have to uninstall and wait for fix. Not phone brand or Bluetooth specific. People might holdup before rushing in. Full Review

I used to love it but since the last update it won't show me anything on my agenda. Won't give me suggested times to leave to be on time or early for appointments. Because of that I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it to the original version until they get this new update figure it out. Full Review

Yes it is very small, convenient probably accurate. A great place on phone to store those ever increasing passwords...but...when finished what about fingerprint scanner? Where is it? How do you activate it? Is it the same one required to open phone? Cannot find answers to these questions. Full Review

Suddenly 4 months ago, Google decided that I'm British and am interested in news from the UK. Nothing against the Brits, but I'm an American living in the US and prefer news from here instead of Brexit, Manchester United, and the Royal family. I have sent Google feedback on this over a dozen times, and no fix. Guess they just aren't interested. Full Review

They got rid of the swiping to remove news articles from my feed. They also split up my feed so I can't get weather, traffic, and my news all in one place. I'm removing the feed and not using this app any longer. Although I might have to, since I use the assistant quite a bit. Full Review

Features are good but the performance with the last few updates has become poor. Long lags on activating, missed voice commands and force closes. It's very frustrating to use now. I'm on Nougat 7.1 with plenty of free device RAM (usually half is free). Full Review

Latest update causes loud screening noise when activating Bluetooth voice command. This is happening with multiple different phones and headsets. The problem goes away by deleting the update. Quite a number of forums on this topic show that many people are having this problem and getting no help from Google. Might be time to see what S Voice is like Full Review

12/15 - Update: Working better on the Z2 Play. Hopefully the next update doesn't mess anything up. 12/8 Update: The latest update still does not fix Assistant. Voice training is still nearly impossible. Responds only 1/2 the time. Roll it back Google. It's a simple systems concept. Obviously your QA team didn't test it througly. 11/28 Update: I think the latest update has messed with "Ok Google" recognition. It was working fine before. It seemed to stop responding, so I retrained it, but had to enunciate "Ok Google" carefully after deleting the existing voice model to get it to work. It's very finiky now. Voice commands and queries work quickly and without issue after it finally recognizes me or if I just hold down home, it's the listening that's having problems. Please fix. Full Review

I cannot even record my voice model. Ok google was not working so I decided to delete my voice model and make a new one. But when I was about to do it, it tells me that 'problem with connection: check your connection and try again.' but my internet is all fine. Full Review

Highly Angry. Y'all need to know if anything happens to your Device, Google locks your account and makes it virtually impossible to restore. No one writes down the date they first created an email account. Totally Disastrous!!! Full Review

Google now has become a newsreader for news I have no interest in reading. I disabled news from THREE different settings pages to no avail. Update: the articles showing have become extremely offensive and inappropriate. Also Google has removed the option to disable the feed. Full Review

Can't disable the spammy 'Stories to read'. I've tried everything, almost rendering the phone useless by disabling this app (you can then no longer launch other apps). I don't want stories pushed in my face. Full Review

The 'hey google' update doesn't even work and it is quite frustrating. The weather card is all the way at the bottom which mine used to be at the top, which I preferred. Notifications never make a sound or vibrate when the settings are set to vibrate and to a specific ringtone. Full Review

When activating google assistant on Bluetooth a loud noise as if someone is long pressing on the keypad when putting in a number. Please fix this, this issue wasn't happening in the other updates sent out. This needs to be fixed as this not acceptable standard you need to check your updates thoroughly before releasing any update to the public this is a very big inconvenience. Full Review

I think the Google is suffering from "Hard To Hear" problem. Since it can't hear me at once. I need to speak a couple of times to wake up the assistant. After that I am able to ask her anything. Please fix this. Full Review

They took away the swipe feature to dismiss feed cards. Very uninnovated. Made me choose to buy a note 8 on order instead of even checking out the pixel 2 xl. Hopefully Bixby will be a better substitute Full Review

Hey Google I love the app but the emojis are just annoying because there are loads more Samsung and Apple emojis but the Google ones barely have any so because of this I am not able to see the emojis some of my friends send me. And also the emojis asthetic is pretty poor. Could you change this Google it will be very good. Thank you for taking time to read my review Full Review

Regularly doesn't respond to voice commands, still... What's worse, is the newsfeed... There are a number of subjects I want to never, ever see, and it's not possible to filter them out. Please fix this, I'm sick of celebrity rubbish and royal banality. Full Review

The Google feed is deteriorating in quality and utility. There is a very active and negative user response across multiple Google forums regarding the inability to disable "trending stories". The community response/workaround is to disable the Google application altogether. Very upsetting as this used to be a great application (circa Google Now) that had useful, personalized information and updates available with a swipe. Simple request; fix/enable the ability to disable trending stories. Full Review

I really like this app, but since the12-12 update, the app has a big issue! When I push the button my Bluetooth to speak, I get a loud noise in my ear. Like a touchtone. I had to delete the update. I will change my rating after the problem is fixed. Full Review

Wish the cards could be swiped away like with the Google Now Launcher. Also wish this was named something besides just 'Google', making it impossible to search for information about it. Otherwise I'd have given 5 stars. As is, only 2 stars. Full Review

The most recent update has broken "OK Google" from any screen for me. When I go into the settings to activate it, it brings up the train voice model sequence, then immediately crashes. This removes one of the app's most useful features. I'm on a Samsung Galaxy J3. Please fix! Full Review

Last update causes huge loud feedback. Samsung S7. Android 7. Several Bluetooth headsets used. When pushed Bluetooth button for Google Now/Assistant - heard loud feedback. Issue does not occur with corded headset. Rolled back update no issues. Note - wiped and re-installed phone 2X - same effect - Looking forward to fix. Full Review

Make tapping images on Google magnify and swipe like it did before! It's extremely frustrating to have to press and hold images one by one if I want to see it larger! What a useless setback on something that was not broken and was user friendly! Fix it! There's other search engines that have this basic feature that I will use until you fix this faulty app. Full Review

I don't find the new save system appealing, you have to go on over to the site in order to look at it. This really bugs me. The old save system and was better. Then there was the old google search bar where if you looked something up it shows you an image though now that's taken off too. For now I'll give 2 stars. Full Review

Worked great until the last update. Now "hey Google" doesn't work. It won't allow me to access the retrain voice screen and it keeps telling me my microphone isn't working. I uninstalled it back to factory settings and everything works fine including the voice recognition and "hey google". Please fix it's annoying to keep uninstalling to a previous edition when the update automatically causes it not to work. I can still type and manually press the "mic" and talk but no hands free.
