Google - get rid of the blue pop up tips!!!Have an issue and cannot find anyone at Google to help. Literally EVERY SINGLE time I am on Google on my iphone, these blue “tip” boxes pop up. They contain directions and/or explanations for VERY self explanatory buttons and things on the Google page. For example -I search something like “candy” and then on the results that come up there is an overview of the subject searched. Then there is a blue box that pops up and points to that overview button and says “tap here for summary and general info”. I’m not understanding why Google has to define/explain this button every time I search something. I know what overview means. Or I look up a restaurant and a box forms over the “order here” button on the result page and says “view menu and order food.” If these instructional pop ups only occurred once when I first used Google I would understand but every time I search something there are blue boxes all over the page speaking to me like I am dumb lol. Soooo unnecessary and so annoying. Trying to find a way to disable this but no one can give me any info. I’ve tweeted at them and they don’t answer, I’ve called apple who says it’s Google’s issue but no one cares. Have stopped using Google because of how annoying it is..Version: 179.0

HelpThe last time I went on google, a notification told me my phone was corrupting, I have since deleted google but it continues to show up as a grid-like icon called google that when I click it, my phone crashes.Version: 60.0

New update crashes itSince the new update the app won’t open. It crashes immediately after being opened..Version: 185.0

Stop refreshing my feed arbitrarilyIt’s not a bad app. But the most annoying ‘feature’ is that if you focus away from your interests/news feed for a bit and then come back to read that interesting article you saw then magically and before your eyes Google will disappear it from your feed forever. This happens even if you have the actual article page open! A big fail on the basics here..Version: 173.0

What have you done with search images!?Google as a search bar is obviously great and revolutionary- not 1 star of course but I really wanted to complain about the new image search layout on a smart phone. You can’t see images! It takes you to pages instead, and you can’t swipe for images like you used too. It doesn’t even give you the option of maximising the picture from the page, which now shows as much smaller on the screen! Guys, please revert this ASAP. This upgrade needs to be improved significantly now, as opposed to before which only needed some improvement..Version: 69.0

Unwanted information on my discovery feedThere’s a Tampa Bay Bucs score feed under my search bar that just popped up out of nowhere. It’s been there for a week now even though I’ve went to the settings to make sure I didn’t somehow request this information. I did not & it remains. This is starting to frustrate me. I’ve never had this problem & I’m wondering if the new iOS update has something to do with it. Update: So I wanted to clarify my issue. It’s not what articles are popping up in my feed, it’s a persistent weekly score bubble under my google search bar at the very top of my discovery feed. I have went through all the options & requested that no Tampa Bay Bucs news specifically be added to my feed. It has remained. Update #2: It’s actually the latest team news feed for the Bucs. I just installed the new update & it’s still there..Version: 179.0

Google ImagesThey new format makes it so I can’t tap on an image to isolate it anymore. Looks a lot uglier and hard to look at. Unnecessary change honestly..Version: 74.1

Google lens gone??!!I am only giving one star until google “lens” is back in search bar next to microphone again. What happened to the google lens option that WAS right next to the microphone in the search bar?? I used it for only a couple of things and when I went to use it again within 24 hours it was GONE. I’ve gone through everything within the app and there’s a place to download it and that didn’t even work. In one place it talks about the lens but again, it’s not on there. I’ve uninstalled the app and when I go back to the App Store to reinstall it, it says to update it. But I uninstalled it so why is it only giving option to update it instead of install it. And when I go to App Store and look at all the app offers, it shows that you can use google lens to search stuff you see, BUT IT’S NOT THERE WHEN I’M IN THE APP ITSELF. What’s the deal google? Where is the lens????? Please help me with this??!!!!.Version: 97.0

DisturbingGoogle tracks EVERYTHING and chooses what is permitted to be shared. If they don’t agree with you they delete it and ban it!.Version: 177.0

Just keeps getting worse and worse.App can’t load search results about 40% of the time. Everything else works fine, I have no problem doing anything else on my phone just this app won’t load search results it says try again. If I click one of the news articles under the search bar it’s absolutely fine, just can’t load search results. And this is when I’m home with full wifi in nyc with full service. Again, literally everything else on my phone is fine. I use google a lot, but if I search five things I’ll have to go to internet explorer for at least 2-3 of them because the google app just won’t load search results. I’ve tried taking off the app and reloading it, I’ve had this problem on two different phones now. It’s just not a good app anymore if it doesn’t give search results about half the time..Version: 131.0

Google window on the bottom of screenI like using this app, however, I really dislike the google window at the bottom of the page. It’s in the way when I need to make a selection at the bottom of the screen. I know how to make it smaller so I can make a selection. It’s just to much work just to see the bottom of the screen. Most times I just give up and click open page in Safari so I don’t have deal with it. Its also slightly annoying because it never goes away and I don’t see an option to close it. The only time it goes away is when I scroll up which does me no good if I want to look at the very bottom of the page. It would be much better if it was hidden at the top of the screen and I can just swipe down if I want to see it. At least give an option to close the box..Version: 36.0

UnusableNormally one of my go-to apps. But it crashes every time I use it less than a minute after opening the app. The latest update hasn’t helped so this has been on going for weeks now. I have to downgrade my rating to 1 star since I can’t even use the app anymore..Version: 105.0

History search, activity search????I can’t even explain how the history searching is stupid, come on Google!!!.Version: 60.0

Google is great but...I've always used this app and thought that it was the best, weather I was using it to research or just look up images, but the new up date has changed the way I think about it as not only has it made it harder to use and view images but it also deletes pages before their limit is up. So can you please reverse the update, or improve it, as it's made it more like other search apps that I've used so this one no longer stands out to me as the best..Version: 38.0

Losing pages.If I’m on a page and I have to either step away so my phone goes to sleep or switch screens, it resets to the homepage search bar. Not all the time, but enough that it’s incredibly irritating. I’ll have to scroll all the way back down to where I was (I love reading comments on articles, so sometimes it’s a lot of scrolling) to continue reading. This has only become a problem in the last few updates, I believe since the overall look has changed. Sometimes the page I was on will be completely gone from the history as well, saying I have no browsing history when I clearly do, as I was JUST reading something. Then I have to remember what I searched and the title of the article. Apps are supposed to be streamlined, quick & beneficial. I might as well read on a computer. Fix this, please..Version: 46.0

IlovegboardThe Gboard for iPhone needs to be user friendly and consistent as the apple keyboard is. The keyboard click sounds do not sound like the apple keyboard which is a bummer and there should be an option to remove the globe or emoji button in the keyboard because there's too much clutter and it becomes compact to type. Support for iPhone X. I hope you fix this and the keyboard works seemlesly. Thank you.Version: 63.0

Google Assistant problemsI use Japanese as my second language on everything, and when I opened the app I changed that setting as well, but I noticed I couldn’t change the order of the languages as English stayed at the top no matter what I did. But I payed it no mind as it still worked both ways. I downloaded the app to use the “hum a song” feature anyways, yet when I first opened the app, the button that you are supposed to use for that feature didn’t show up. I closed the app for a few minutes and opened it back up to finally see the button, but google assistant seemed to have lost the ability to understand Japanese and would make my words into unreadable English “sentences”. After trying to fix it for 10 minutes I gave up and decided to make sure the “hum a song” feature was actually working. The circle of colorful dots showed up on the screen and moved when I hummed but nothing happened and after waiting for a few seconds, it would close and show the normal google assistant pop-up at the bottom of the screen. As if I hadn’t pressed the “search a song” button at all. Very disappointed..Version: 163.0

ProblemsIf I ‘copy & paste’ a word, the word goes to ‘clipboard’ & I can’t delete it, even if I uninstall - reinstall the app, the word is still on clipboard?! I’ve tried everything, including deleting search history etc etc etc.... Creepy. Since I reinstalled the Google app, there are now a load of stories/adverts underneath the Google search bar & when I try to get rid of them, a message comes up saying I have to sign into a Google account - I don’t have one and I don’t want one, so I’m stuck with clipboard saving my copy & paste & a load of stories/adverts that I can’t get rid of unless Google force me to sign up to their account..Version: 85.0

Music IdentificationAfter seeing the annoying ad claiming that you can hum or whistle a song for identification, I thought what the heck, let’s try it. After attempting 5 song ID’s through (popular and non popular) whistling or humming, I can say this does not work at all. If your ad claims something, at least ensure this is easy to make work otherwise first impressions will sink you. This is why I still refuse to subscribe to YouTube; it’s half baked..Version: 137.2

App quitsA weird thing started on my iPhone 11 this app quits unexpectedly even reinstall of app didn’t fix, tried on both wifi and mobile data please fix this bug 😣😣.Version: 123.0

Needs return of axed feature....I enjoy using the Google app for accessing my news feed on my iPhone 6S Plus handset but Google has removed its best feature - being able to directly share a Newsfeed item using the hotdog rather than having to go INTO the article and sharing it from within the article. More often than not, we hear news throughout the day so we are aware of Newsfeed content simply by reading the headline on the feed, so there is no real need to re-read content to be able to share an article directly from the feed. Please, please, PLEASE Google, restore the share from hotdog feature in the next update to the Google app because it is so badly missed and its removal does NOTHING to enhance the appeal of the app whatsoever IMHO..Version: 59.0

Why would you change photos?I just updated the app yesterday and all of a sudden I can’t view pictures properly. Why would you change this? It was perfect before and now I’m just upset. Now I’ll have to save images to my camera roll just to look at them full screen. Truly disappointed in you..Version: 69.0

Needs Ad blockerMy favourite search engine on my phone but the ads are making it too painful to browse. Google Please build in an adblocker or adblocker support for iOS... until then adios.Version: 68.0

No song search available as advertisedThey advertised vocal song search. I downloaded the app for that. It is not available!.Version: 137.2

Terrible AppForced me to download. Otherwise it shows up on my Safari all the time when I tried using Safari google. After downloading, it always stops loading content when other browsers load fine..Version: 190

Keeps deleting my tabsI had been fine using google mobile for a long time but yesterday it changed the formatting which wasn’t a big deal in itself, but then I went to my tabs to go back to the story’s I had been reading and all my tabs were gone so I thought “ok, I’ll make new ones I remember most of what I had been doing” and I did only to realize that it hadn’t been making new tabs for each site I visited and I had to go and individually make tabs for each site, where as before it did it automatically, but I did all that and had my nice wonderful tabs with all my story’s and sites I read for awhile then logged of and went to bed only to wake up and have all my tabs gone yet again, so I thought maybe there is an auto delete feature and there was so I set it to never remade all my tabs read some more logged of ate breakfast and not 30 minutes later I check goggle and all my tabs are gone again!!! I have no idea why I check all my setting and nothing should be clearing and it hadn’t even been an hour, it’s annoying and pointless. Google will not stop clearing my tabs no matter what I try..Version: 137.2

App suddenly slow and crashes on iPhone 8.Not sure why but the past few weeks the app is crashing consistently on my iPhone 8. When I open it takes time to load (hasn’t happened before), the scroll lags (hasn’t happened before) and after a certain amount of time it just crashes. This seemed to happen even without an update to the app I think. I am running iOS 13 still, maybe that’s an issue but this problem has come out of the blue. I’ve noticed when I do use the app the right side of my phone about two thirds up the screen gets very warm, pretty sure this is where the CPU is located so there’s some weird thing going on there. Please fix this Google. Ok so I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app and it seems to be working smoothly now, lost all my tabs though 😠.Version: 183.0

Shake to send feedback!There is NO way to turn this off within the Google app. I’m not talking about in Google maps. People have been complaining about this for months and the only developer response I’ve EVER seen is to go to another website to send more feedback. I know I’m not going to get any answers here, but I know people are searching for this exact question in the reviews to see if anyone has a remedy. So far the answer is no. No one seems to know how to disable this “shake to send feedback” feature that pops up an absurd amount of times in a day. Why is Google collecting my unsolicited feedback without my approval 200x a day. Since they changed their privacy policies suddenly there’s a “glitch” that totally invades my privacy without my consent. Because a permanent “shake to send feedback” feature WAS NOT in the Google terms of agreement that I agreed to..Version: 200.0

CrashesRecent update is now causing this App to crash after about 30 seconds of use!.Version: 107.0

Has been my favorite app but has been crashing for weeks nowThis app has been my favorite iPhone app but a recent update led to constant consistent crashing issues. Any time I try to use it it crashes. This began to occur after an update. I have looked ever day for an update assuming the developers would want to repair a problem that leads to complete inability to use app, but nothing. I have begun to look into other search apps as the lack of any response is concerning. I have not yet found one I like as much, but honestly ANYTHING that works is wayyy better than typing in a search getting result only to have the app ALWAYS crash. When trying to get the result. Gave three stars because of the very slow response, but would have given 4/5 stars before this problem which renders the app useless..Version: 109.0

Incognito without login pleaseThe Google search platform is very good and i have started using the incognito function to avoid tracking etc. I am wondering why Google needs to insist on a login every time i use it?!! It is annoying and i am guessing that for commercial reasons Google would prefer a user to be tracked? Anyway, i would prefer no tracking and not to have to log in every time i use it. Remove the log in please..Version: 62.0

Google imagesWhy is it google that ever since you changed how the images work people have complained but yet they still haven’t been put back to how they use to be. I have just done the resent update hoping for the images to have been sorted out but only to find that they are exactly the same and haven’t been put back to the way people like it. I don’t care what website that image is from if I want to go to that website I will but most of the time when I look on images, I just want to look at images. I do hope that the images get sorted out soon but I doubt it as apps like this one don’t tend to listen to its reviews....Version: 71.0

Good search but news feed is rubbishI use google as my search engine but on my iPhone I just deleted this app because I can’t find a way to unfollow brands in news feed. I don’t want to see stories from daily mail and mirror. I googled how to customise and all the advice suggests to unfollow brand but this isn’t option, all you can do is hide a single story. I hid them for a while thinking it may learn my behaviour and hide them all, but it didn’t. If they’re going to shove news I. Your face for using their app fine, but you should be able to choose what news to see. I think it’s rubbish, which is British for ridiculously bad. I’ll just use google within safari..Version: 95.0

Crashes after a couple of seconds of useI use to love this app, but since the last update, it won't stay open for longer than a minute, it crashes everytime you search something, or just after looking through the news cards for a minute. It's useless after the update..Version: 111.0

Lost functionalityThe app notifies me when my deliveries are sent which is fantastic. It used to have 3 menus down the bottom for the home page, details about the notifications, and search history. Now the details about the notifications has disappeared but I still get the notifications..? If I click on them it takes me to the homepage of the app and I can’t see any of the info I want. So why is it notifying me?? It’s really weird and very annoying..Version: 64.0

Palestine in google mapsPalestine will be free even you took it from your maps.Version: 116.0

Very disappointedOkay Google, you’ve been on thin ice for a while but with this new update is where I draw the line. I loved the Google app and have been using it religiously as my search engine for 5+ years. There have been many changes since I first started using the app, mostly good, but some bad. I use google a lot for reference images for art and now you can no longer save pictures directly from images. It was bad enough you took away the image previews, and then changed the way you save photos, but now you can’t even save them! It sends you to the website, but for many things on mobile it either doesn’t work or forces you to sign into a website to get to the photo. Sometimes it will take you to a website that just doesn’t even work! I will probably stop using the Google app after today and switch to another unless you fix this. It makes the app unusable for me..Version: 74.1

Hum this tune/ what’s this song, non existent.One star may be a bit harsh but this is the only reason I agreed to give google more of my data thanks to their newest ad. This feature is completely non existent for me iPhone 8+ everything up to date. Had to check if it was early April fools or something..Version: 137.2

Slower after updateI have both Google (this app) and Chrome app. In the last year, this app has always been faster than Chrome. Today, this app was not usable so I updated it. Huge regret. After the upgrade, this app could no load any search results, while Chrome loaded search results - using the same search words - in 2 seconds. 5 star for the functionality. Minus 2 star for the unstable update..Version: 166.0

Google Sign-In Broken In AppI'm used to using texted codes for 2FA. Fortunately, Google still lets me do that. The idea of depending on some password manager that contains a key that I can't access if something goes wrong doesn't appeal to me. This time, though, I decided to try a different option that Google provides, which is to open the Google App and verify my identity. So, I downloaded the app and gave it a go. What happened, though, was that the text in the screen was highly zoomed, and locked in place, making it impossible to scroll, in any direction, to wherever it was on the screen that I was supposed to do the next thing. Until that bug gets fixed, obviously, the Google App two-step login option is dead. As for the app itself, it seems to be a decent search engine with some additional features..Version: 203.0

Crashes constantlyUnstable, crashes about 10 secs after opening ap everytime i try use it. Happened since latest update.Version: 107.0

Newest update???I've always loved this app, however I am baffled by your choice in the newest update to remove the ability to clear all open pages at the same time! It was super convenient before to be able to clear what could sometimes be dozens of pages as once, now we're back to clearing each one individually! Please fix because this is a stupid little thing that shouldn't be an issue when you had it right previously..Version: 36.0

Images function is terribleA few years ago, you used to be able to click on an image in the "images" section and the photo would take up the whole screen and you could rotate or enlarge it. Now, clicking on an image just shows you a "visit web" or "share" option while still having the interface at the bottom, and buttons obstructing the full image. Even more annoying, now whenever you hold the image to save it, the "save image" pop up disappears as soon as you let go, and only lets you save the image after around 5 tries of holding the photo. Can't it go back to the old ways where you could just click on a picture and have it take up the whole screen again?.Version: 183.0

Want my slide delete backI used to like my Google search and relied on it for most of my reading articles but with the removal of the slide delete you made it difficult to use this app. Please bring back the feature..Version: 39.0

GarbageAsk google a question and it might just give you A ANSWER, not THE ANSWER, To your question. I looked up a simple question, “How long is the US” to which it tried to tell me from some random websites Information that the continental United States was 2800 Miles from East to West (which is correct), but also tried to tell me it was 2800 miles from North to South as well. After some searching I found out that it’s about 1700 miles, so why is google telling me that a website, with incorrect information is right? Shouldn’t there be a algorithm or maybe a fact checker that would make sure that your actually giving people correct information? It is absolutely unacceptable that Google, a place where people get there information from everyday, is giving people the wrong information. What other questions do I have wrong answers to because of this. It would be great if when I asked google something it didn’t tell me what might be the answer, I would rather make the mistake myself of clicking on a not so trusted website and getting wrong information there rather than google straight up lying to me..Version: 169.0

For injustice to who ever supports PalestineI hate u google.Version: 159.0

Doesn’t work half the timeI’ve had this app for a few years and it’s happened intermittently, but it seems to have gotten worse recently. I’ll search something and then just...... nothing. The screen will be and stay blank indefinitely, not loading a single result. Blue bar will fill up, but nothing shows up. I’ve tried it on multiple different wifi networks, using data in various locations, force quit the app and restarted, to no avail. I’ll then go search the same thing on the Safari app and it’ll immediately load. So I’m inclined to think that it’s a problem with the app’s functionality, not user error. The next day or so it’ll start functioning properly, only to go back to being broken again. It was convenient, but now it’s just infuriating.Version: 137.2

Google lensDownloaded this app specifically for the google lens search (dunno why they couldn’t put the function on chrome) first few searches worked well, now today I go to use it and the lens search has disappeared without a trace leaving only type or voice search? So I try and google the problem, nothing works to fix it. Even tried telling me to download google images to use google lens? C’mon google I already have the apps for gmail, chrome, drive, duo, maps, earth, home, assistant and now just the google app and am extremely disappointed as a user of google for over 15 years..Version: 84.0

Stay Away From GoogleThey’re growing too big for their own good. They act like they have a right to shove all of their content and whatever else they decide is a good idea into your face. And no, you can’t manage what they notify you about easily. You dared to search for a sports team? Clearly you want to receive game recap scores all the time about them, with no way to turn them off! There used to be a simple way, but they updated that out. It’s no longer there. Clearly, just holding on the notifications you don’t want and turning them off that way was too convenient for users, and led to too much getting turned off that google didn’t want. Now I’m stuck choosing between getting notifications I actually want to hear about while also getting something I literally never asked for, or no notifications at all. Such a great system, fantastic evidence that the company cares about your interests, and not theirs..Version: 204.1

IssuesCrashing hard after about 20 seconds while accessing Facebook messages ..Version: 105.0

Lots of issuesI constantly come across issues that either don’t get fixed with the app’s updates or new issues that pop up. An issue I have always had is when I do an image search and I scroll through the results, after scrolling a certain amount it automatically sets me back to the top for no reason at all. This happens every time I do an image search and it has become to annoying, having to scroll all the way back down again. Another issue pertaining to the image search is when I try to save an image. I used to be able to hold down on the image and click “save image” from the pop up interface. Now, this thing pops up but if I lift my finger from holding down the image, to click on the save image button, the thing goes away. The only way I found to do it successfully is once the pop up appears, I have to continue holding down on the image but then scroll up or down a little with it, this will lock the pop up in place so I can click it. Not sure how this issue is still there without any developers noticing and fixing it, since I thought image search was a huge part of the app..Version: 186.0

Dear google com...Google is so accurate and super fast then I expected to be! It has all the answers I need it helps me in my life, it even fix my spellings , I accidentally did well I certainly think you are one of the best apps I ever had! It help me on work and images news videos but inappropriate stuff are terrible well I actually don’t go on inappropriate apps. I also think under 17 age of people may use it as well unless they don’t go to inappropriate stuff, so that’s why I definitely like google so much I really want thanks the people who made google and…THERE ARE DIFFERENT LANGUAGES AS WELL BELIEVE ME l 💖 google you are the part of my life google don’t ever delete this app GOOGLE!Ok.I NOW WELL 😄😁👍🏻Well done google!.Version: 82.0

Unusable!Having enjoyed using the Google App for many years, the last few weeks have proven the opposite. The App crashes, almost instantly and doesn’t even allow you to report or investigate problems. The online help directs you to use the app which makes this even more frustrating. This review seems to be the only way to report the problem and to try (finally) to get this resolved. Having previously had a great experience with Apple Support (on a separate issue) I’m hoping that Google can provide the same level of customer care..Version: 102.0

Recent problemsI have had the app for years, but over the last few weeks it rarely works. When I search it tells me I am offline, constantly. Sometimes it will work again after about 10 minutes, but mostly it just doesn’t work. Have to resort to using google in safari which works every time, proving I am not offline. Have now deleted the app as it’s pointless..Version: 128.0

Hate appStop asking my to use it.Version: 190

It is a good, but there is some issuesThere is many google glitch that I constantly keep on seeing, like google being SUPER slow and keeps on acting like we do not have internet, and it is Xfinity, and I say Xfinity is really good internet in my book. And this REAL annoying glitch it is what I call the no pictures glitch because when you take photos IT ALWAYS SAYS “could not save image” and you know what I have to do to fix that, DELETE GOOGLE, yeah I would say that is a real annoying glitch, but I don’t know what causes this may cause my phone is outdated, because it is a iPhone 6 or but please google fix this glitch please, because I do not want to constantly DELETE GOOGLE, and when I mean constantly I mean every night, if you where me, you would probably feel the same as me, annoyed, the glitch is getting on my nerves and I hope it will be fixed..Version: 190

Hum search is worthlessI’m trying to identify a tune from a music box we have. So I get that the music quality is low fi, but this app is worthless for that. Not only does it fail to identify the tune, it never even gave a guess or acknowledged that it couldn’t find it or suggested other things to try - its dots bounced along with the sounds (so I know the audio was active) but then would just quit listening and return to home with no feedback. We then gave several tests using humming, whistling, and singing along simple Christmas tunes to see if we could get it to work. I’m no virtuoso but, from the examples shown in all the Google ads, I think it should have given me something in all the tests we tried. Only once did it give me 3 very wrong guesses for a Jingle Bells whistle rendition. All other tests only resulted in no feedback at all. If you make any sounds it interprets as words (“la la la” or “blah blah blah”), it goes straight to lyrics that are ridiculously unhelpful and ignore any tune analysis. Maybe I’m missing a prompt or a trick to get it to work but I’ve determined the ads must be straight-up fiction and false..Version: 190.1

Obnoxious!I love you Google but you’ve become ultra obnoxious about putting ads into articles! They flash constantly, popping up into the reading area. Even if they don’t cover the words on the article, the wiggly ads cause smart phones to flash light in my eyes, making it difficult to focus my eyes on what I’m trying to read. If I delete it, you ask why, then a second or two later serve up another or layer several over each other. Stop! Just stop. There’s no need of it. I’m not going to click an ad while reading an article. I had wanted to read several today. I got so fed up, I deleted all my tabs saved from this app in my browser. I’m sure that will impress your advertisers well. Your job isn’t to aggravate people so much they won’t try to read their content anymore. It’s not your job to annoy me to the point that all I’ll think the next time I see an add for the products you tried to feed me today is “annoying!!!” Your job is to tastefully serve and let me read. This app in particular has become so plagued with ads that I’m seriously thinking of deleting it. I can’t even see the content at times because of pop-up ads. It’s pretty self defeating, don’t you think?.Version: 200.0

New update AWFUL. Google image search useless.New google image search is TERRIBLE! The sole reason I search for images is to see IMAGES, and only images. I do not want to see the text, or a ton of white space. I liked how the old google search app showed images only. I purposely used this app when searching for images as chrome doesn’t display image searches the same. Chrome shows the text. But now, not only is the text required but am unable go full screen with an image (and hide the text when tapping on it or rotating my phone). This is awful for viewing images because phone screens are not that big and now it only shows up on half the screen. Please bring back the old version or at least make it an option that is easy to select on the screen (not hidden in layers of menus within settings). This is extremely frustrating and disappointing.Version: 69.0

Good app but recent update with trends is annoyingI regularly use this app as it’s easier than going on safari and then google and then search. But the recent update brought the trends, which I don’t want to see. In the previous version of the app, I managed to get rid of them, but this time round I can’t. Please let there be an option to be get rid of the trends. If I want to see what’s trending, I can go on Twitter for that. I don’t want to see what’s trending when I want to go and search something, especially when lots of the articles nowadays are biased.Version: 91.0

SuckyI love that I can use this in safari BUT safari is better and no offence but you should remake your app!!! Like it says I can remove an ad and then a new ad pops up it’s so irritating and like why can’t I just remove ads in this little section because I’m annoyed I just like I don’t want a add in my game and I’m trying to play my game so then it says do you want to remove this and I’m like yes and I click the yes button and thence new add just popped up or it’s like so Lagi that it just stays there I’m like mad at this app mad are you do you feel like one thing no I only just downloaded you just to make us little like slideshow thing I don’t even know what it is you are horrible you Safari will smack you in the face they are way better I hate your app I absolutely hate it.Version: 114.0

Comment on your invitationI just need to read the bad reviews to understand your shortfalls . You need to be on top of bad reviews immediately to engender confidence. You should Not think you are so big ,that you write off the unhappy people as the ‘law of average’ percentage that you know will always be lost as customers. In other words …. you can’t please all the people . But , Once people hear the short falls you will have an exponential loss in uptake of your product. You still can’t get past the us and them concept . You are the US We are the THEM Once we feel you are on our side you don’t need to sell anymore . Also , Have you spreadsheeted and categorised the reviews , in order to deal with them and then go next level and respond to the people that have bothered to communicate with you. ? Most people can’t be bothered writing a review… they just walk away… so these reviews are (probably) the tip of the iceberg . Most reviews I read said it was a great app but…….. Also, Your pop up ad comes up on my I phone while I’m using another search engine. Where is my option to tell you to stop flashing that ad at me Or Am I meant to close it forever I’ve made my choice Please leave me alone There is no charge for this advice.Version: 197.0

App freezing up for a few seconds ALL THE TIMEThis app constantly freezes for a few seconds while scrolling through the news feed when I am signed in to my account. It also crashes and exits the app on some occasions. Only thing that temporarily fixes it is if I clear all the browsing history in the app? But then after a few minutes it goes back to freezing again... very annoying! I have an iPhone XS so processor speed should not be an issue. Google keep releasing ‘bug fix’ updates but none of them resolve this issue. I’ve tried it across multiple phones and uninstalled/reinstalled the app and the issue persists..Version: 88.1

Hate the new look; url on the topI understand that in order to keep the browser safe etc. it needs to be refreshed but why change the look people are used to? I hate it so much that I was the url of a page on the top of my search now not at the bottom, it is less intuitive and I feel frustrated every time I use google now😱😱😱 ( and I did not agree to that because I hadn’t updated the google before it happened) At first, I thought I was hacked and called apple support ! Please change its looks to what has worked for a long time: url at the bottom!.Version: 74.0

Disable tabs?Coming from a Pixel 3 to iPhone I was expecting the search app to be basically that - search (with Google newsfeed as the home), and if I wanted to browse with tabs I’d fire up Chrome. Search history kept as usual. But this seems to be a bit of both, where each search is retained as a tab so if you want to do a quick search irrespective of what you searched for last time you may have tabs to clear down first as it tried to behave like a full browser. Minimum tab age is a day so that’s not much of a workaround. Kinda typical Google really with overlapping products, each trampling on the others toes. Meets vs Hangouts vs Duo and so on..Version: 137.2

Could be betterAll I want is to have the old style previous tab this such a hard request??! I wrote a review a while back about this and strangely when I went to use google app again, it had changed from the new style back to the old style. Which I was extremely happy with. But the other day I went to use it and hey presto the dumb new style was back! Hey Google, sort out an option to choose which style people want... or just change it back for me. Not much to ask really. Then I’ll give a better rating..Version: 156.1

Don’t bother downloading, they can’t seem to fix itThis used to be a great app, it did everything I could possibly want from a search engine app. Until several weeks ago. Now you can only use the app for approx 30 seconds before it shuts down completely. Since the problem first occurred, they have sent 3 updates stating “bug fixes” but none of them have actually fixed it. What is the point in the “new features” in updates if we can’t be on the app for long enough to use them? I’m forced to use google on safari which is not user friendly. Google need to sort it, I want the working app back! So don’t download it, it is broken and has been for absolutely ages!.Version: 112.0

UnsatisfiedGoogle quickly became the most used search engine thanks to its simplicity and ease of use. Sadly, this app is missing a few things to earn those describers. 1. They took away the connectivity to Apple Maps. Why? This was one of the main features I used the app for. I would look up Applebee’s, click for directions, and google would reroute me right to Apple Maps with the right directions. Now Apple Maps is no longer an option and it’s obvious you took away this feature without stating that’s what you were going to do in the update which in my mind is a really shady business practice and let’s me know you knew doing this would make some people mad. 2. Symbols on the images. Now users can’t screenshot or view images without seeing the buttons/symbols. Again, another feature I used a lot that was taken away. 3. When you click on a suggested image when viewing an image, they is no way to go back to that original image without going back all the image results. Why is there no back button? Please add back these features to earn a good review! Thanks to these exact features, I think I’m going to have to start using Safari app just for the Apple connectivity and to view images without the three or four buttons on top each of them..Version: 111.0

Some Major Problems with the 3-DThere’s a huge problem that I’m having with the 3-D Bengal Cat. The problem is when I attempt to videotape it in 3-D, I will try to move the animal around as I’m taking the video. It shows that it works, as the red line is moving around the circle, however the video does not actually take. I have seen a couple times at the top of my screen “Touch to return to Snapchat” or “Hangouts” but even after I have closed these apps it still fails to work and says the same thing. Afterwards when I try to take a video without moving the animal, it doesn’t take either! I have to close and open the app again, or exit out of 3-D in order to get a working video. But I’m still unable to move the animal around or the whole process will repeat. I’m not sure if it’s the same for other animals or not, but regardless, please fix this!.Version: 158.0

Good app ruined by stupid errorsI like this app and as a search engine it works great. The issue comes when you Want to use news feed it won't remember your preferences. It thinks everyone loves football and you can not make it stop suggesting football related stories. Recently it gets worse and reloads the news feed every time you try and delete one with the exact same stories that you just deleted. Trying to report errors is nye on impossible as it gives you a load of suggestions to try. I am going off Google.Version: 66.0

Not good since overhaulI previously used this app for incognito only searching. In the settings I could configure it to not store any history etc. However, now I have to use the actual incognito setting, which, doesn’t seem to be incognito at all. I was surprised to see the last page I was viewing several days ago when I opened the app today. I was then able to press “back” several times until I got back to the home screen - not good. Also it’s a little annoying to be asked “do you still want to be in incognito mode” every time I open the app Update: Is this ever going to be fixed? I can press back though my entire search history in incognito mode, whether I reset the app/tablet or not..Version: 84.0

Marginally Better (version 61.0)The thumbnail issue has been addressed. Now if it would only save the page until I’m back online again... Also I find when watching a video or listening to a podcast after closing the page, swiping it away because I don’t want it anymore - Google keeps playing it! Google, if you want to play it, use your own device. NOT MINE!.Version: 61.0

Not Happy with Latest UpdatePreviously the icon to select open and close bookmarks, was available on the browser screen. Now if I use it to open a bookmark that is found several levels down in a folder, I then have to back out of the bookmarks one click at a time to get rid of the bookmarks column on the browser. Previously this was one click. A huge step backwards..Version: 178.0

It's getting worse tbhI have used this app for a while instead of safari because I just trust google more. But recently its been hiccuping and I can't stand it. One thing is that it won't let me change my picture. I don't know why and I want it changed because its an old picture of me. I will click on the icon and I will tap the camera on the profile picture and it will say "you can't change this profile picture from this account" but the problem is I have before. Also I've had this song stuck in my head so I tried to use the "find song" feature on the app and when I tap on it the dots will show up for a few seconds, like its trying to find the song, then it will go back to the home page. It is getting really annoying and I'm about ready to quit using the app (even though I liked using it) if these problems continue..Version: 178.0

Get Google Chrome InsteadIn short, why this company has two browsing applications is beyond me but chrome is far better than regular ole google and way more user friendly to those exposed to safari and looking for a widget to shake up their boring old home screens. In long, I downloaded google for the widget which I really liked the look of on my home screen but the features of this app compared to safari our lacking. I would often find features that were on safari that weren’t on google or didn't work as smoothly, such as the transition from incognito to regular browsing or simply going back and going forward while searching. If I went back too far google would send me to the original search screen with no way of going back to what I was just looking at. These, amongst other things, are minor, but they add up in the long run to make the users experience horrid. However, the google chrome app is a different story, it’s nearly identical to safari and in many ways better than it..Version: 167.0

Unnecessary, annoying changesSince the last update. The pages of the navigation or a ‘place’ hijack screen every time I close and open my phone. Just let me zoom, move the map as I see fit and don’t reset it every time. For instance. I have a walk, look at a place on google maps, fold the page back and analyse my route. I switch off my phone. When I open it again it resets to the page of that place. Unnecessary, annoying, wasn’t there before. Before the place would be just in the top waiting to be reopened. The navigation with public transport- it zooms out to the full view of the route each time I open my phone. Just let me zoom and leave it like that. Small things which were not present there before but have been added unnecessarily..Version: 95.0

Song hum featureEvery time I say “what’s this song” into the microphone it takes me to a google search of instructions on how to use the feature instead of actually performing the feature itself. I also can’t find the “song search” button after exploring the whole app, despite the unwarranted google search telling me there is a button. Going to have to rate a 1 star and uninstall the app for faulty software and false advertising. Unfortunate considering this is a cool idea but it seems to have been executed very poorly. I would suggest actually putting a button there instead of lying to your users, and making it so when I say “What’s this song” it performs the actual advertised feature instead of taking me to a google search. Seems like a simple and obvious fix. Hopefully you all can get back to me and let me know if I’m doing something wrong, if the song search button is hidden somewhere strange in the app, or if the programming is just completely inept..Version: 137.2

Slowly deterioratingGoogle was great, but the issue is that minor inconveniences such as taking Google Search off iMessage is really annoying. From there I could do a quick search or a location to send much quicker via text. Not anymore! Another thing, the app gets slower and more cluttered with each update. I do not use Safari as much due to the fact that it feels “heavier” and more cluttered, but now I’m seeing pointless news articles that are absolutely irrelevant to me as an individual. All of the data mining and theft your company does, and you can’t even match my interests? Even if you could match my interests, you wouldn’t be able to do it because you are Google. Furthermore the articles are pointless anyways because of the News app and third party apps that I can download. Slowly but surely, Google is turning into a lesser search engine like Yahoo or Bing..Version: 128.0

Good when it works...This is my first ever review, so you know I’ve got a gripe. When the app works, it’s great, 80% of the time though, it won’t load up properly, won’t load news feeds and won’t search for items, it’ll constantly stay in limbo thinking about what it should do and then tell me ‘oops, something went wrong’, AGAIN.

Used to love Gmail App for iPhone! Please Fix this app!!!Google; you’re so talented! And yet you have “dumbed” down this app so much it’s just a useless tool for people like myself/ others whom are very particular with fonts/ style / size & including bullet points etc.... The only app that now allows this on iPhone is Apple Mail app; however this is not the best app, as Gmail app - allows faster direct download. Clean and neat to swap from primary to junk etc. Thus giving it 3 Stars.... BUT It looses all its value with this bullet points and font size! All I can use is the “Apple iOS Bold, Italic and underline” which in its self is a hassle! As I have to highlight everything!!! And the fear of hitting delete/ cut or copy is so frustrating! Please add a “Pro Feature” for people like me, on the go and OR use phone a lot for email and corporate/ professional email reply. This would be most appreciated Outlook Microsoft on iPhone has better features for text! Please beat them! Thank you 😊 keep safe and well.Version: 137.2

Getting worse and worseClearly Google has become more interested in monetizing what was once the sine qua non of digital maps than they are in providing a good user experience. They have junked it up with SO MUCH garbage, like (paid?) eateries and shops, that you can hardly see the streets. And no, I do not need a huge marker to tell me I “recently visited” a site that I merely tapped at random to get rid of something else obstructing my view. At the same time, so my street names are missing, unless you finally just happen to enlarge or shrink the map the perfect amount, and even then it will vanish if you move. And I’m talking about major thoroughfares, bridges, and so on. Then there’s all the persistent stuff I don’t want, like the weather, the Live icon, an inset photo, and info at the bottom of the map about whatever you looked up.

Link to maps usually failsGenerally a useful app but Google has lots of bugs to fix! A search often brings up a map, and when I click on the map within the Google app, it gives "no results". Very annoying and obviously wrong, since if you open another map app, including Google maps, there is what you were looking for. Google, fix this! Similar issue with other searches like yelp. If you search for an establishment and the result you click is a yelp website, the Google app doesn't take you to the information you want. Instead you get a series of links and you have to reenter the search on the yelp app. There's obviously a better way, and things could be more seamless. These have been long running problems and I'm surprised Google isn't on top of this. Seems like it should have been relatively easy to fix..Version: 51.1

Taking Too Long For Search Bar To LoadIt seems the app is actually working now and the issue I had before has gone away. However after opening the app the search bar is taking way too long to load up, it’s been slow for a very long time having a close to a 20 second delay before it loads but now that 20 seconds has become closer to 1 minute or just over and that just isn’t right. You shouldn't have a delay before using any app and I hope that this is actually looked into and fixed because I’ve been dealing with the 20 delay for months now which in itself is already frustrating but having to wait a full minute before I can even use the search bar and google something in the Google app should not be issue for anyone to have, please fix this issue..Version: 95.0

One thing that annoys me …I receive notifications through many channels some I follow down their rabbit hole others I delete. I followed one this morning about iOS options and how to keep or turn them off. So, the first one about turning off phone call banners made me go look and change the way the call interrupts my work flow (if any). Then once I was done in settings I went back to … oh no, wait. Google decided I should go back to the very beginning of my opening Google! What, where the heck was I? Now you make me go back to … oh where the heck was I (before I submitted this review.) WHY CAN’T you leave me where I was in my review of, whatever link you sent me to?! If there’s one thing I hate is software that makes me have to a better short term memory than it does!

Oh, you'll find us if you know our name, but if you search what we sell, only the the big guys show up, even if they don't sell the one-off specialties that we offer.

Used to use it a lot 🤷🏻‍♂️I used to use Safari for real browsing and this Google search app for…quick google searches. Forget a name, a spelling, etc. And the assistant was handy because let’s face it — I’m a big Apple user but Siri really blows. All was good in the kingdom. Now I’m removing it from iPads and iPhones. Look at the disclosure! Why does Google need access to financial information? Besides, Google’s products for Apple devices have been deteriorating over time. They’re a competitor like Microsoft now, so they don’t exactly want feature parity in their cross-platform products. So see ya later, Mr. G. Now using anonymous browsers and a VPN to at least keep the dumb hackers out.

Services NOT received (NYT subscription) and no way to disputeI’ve been trying to contact google in every way shape or form in order to get them to refund me my money, but there is no Avenue. Zero. They don’t give any way for you to directly email someone so that you can resolve your issue and don’t give any phone to call. A New York Times news subscription is pretty basic and it seems like I should’ve been able to troubleshoot why I wasn’t receiving service. I spoke to the New York Times x2 and both times they said it was a third-party (Google Pay issue). The fact that I can’t contact them directly it’s really bad. The account information that I received in my email doesn’t work when I enter it into their form. Don’t trust this app! There’s no way you can get your money back because there’s no way to contact anyone if you have an issue..Version: 119.0

Oops. Something went wrongI would rate this app higher but oops something went wrong, I'll try again later. When the app works like it should it becomes my go to for news based on categories I like. However, it takes a long time for a story/topic you're not interested in to be removed. If I'm not interested in sports, it shouldn't take weeks of removing every article related to sports to finally be removed. Most of the times a few articles will display and going to the next page just results in " something went wrong ". I love this app but it's the most frustrating one I have installed. Reinstallation does not fix the issue. Lastly if I do a random search I now have to open chrome private browsing because this app will "think" I'm interested in whatever I searched for, thus starting the loop cycle of trying to remove articles I'm not interested in, all from one random search..Version: 172.0

Issues all dayUsually have no issues with google search... ok I have the odd slow moments where it takes forever to load, but today as soon as I open the app it freezes on a white screen saying “google” no search bar - nothing! My whole screen freezes and I can’t even exit the app without turning my phone off! All Other apps work fine, no freezing or messing up my phone, but again I try google, and I get a white screen saying google and then “hey presto” my screen knacks up again and I have to reboot my phone to get it to work! No happy! Going to delete and use alternate search engine/browser I think, although gutted as I really didn’t have any issues that bothered me so much before this!.Version: iOS App 87.0

Ridiculous battery usage!!I posted below about this app causing really high usage on the iPhone 6+ a few years back, now since the release of iOS12, my brand new iPhone 8 Plus is suffering again, it is dropping exactly 20% battery usage for every 9 minutes that I am using This google app. I have reset my phone to factory and did a clean update to uOS12 and the only optional app I had installed was Google and the results remained exactly the same, 20% for every 9 minutes of usage. Google really needs to address this issue. iPhone 6+ (78% efficiency) fully charged to 100%. 19 minutes using this app drained phone 37%. Get this sorted google..Version: 59.0

Does a lot, but not fastI rate Google 5 stars - it’s the best way to search. But this app takes too long to load - the majority of times I open the app it’s to tap something out fast but I have to wait half a minute for the search bar to appear; time in which I would have searched on safari and maybe even moved on already. I just want the search bar to be there immediately for me to type into I don’t care if it connects immediately I just don’t want to be staring watching time go by when I just want a quick search. Until that happens, 3 stars..Version: 50.0

Once critical app now unstable under iOS12I have used this app since its early days, a majority of my experience was excellent: on an iPad Pro, it was a godsend in split-screen mode when I needed to pull content from several sources into my primary apps by dragging or pasting. Once iOS updated to its current release, this is the least stable and highest-lag of Google’s iOS offerings (several of which also suffer under iOS12). I didn’t understand when the ‘tools’ option was suddenly deactivated on image searches, but tolerated it because the app overall was still strong. Now, I use this app only when I can afford to have it freeze or crash. Scrolling through saved item collections is impossibly laggy, with several seconds elapsing between a touch or drag and the app responding — when it does scroll, it stutters and freezes. I have a top-tier current-gen iPad Pro with 70% of internal storage available, and would hope Google values stability and performance over feature-adds that aren’t ready for public release. Please fix this, Google: an app that is fragile and unreliable is an app uninstalled. I’ve invested in the enterprise products you offer and rely on them daily (if not hourly) to do my job..Version: 65.0

Hum for songI got google just for that and it doesnt even work.Version: 137.2

Can not open.Since last 2 updates it doesn’t work very well on iphone SE. And today I can not even open it. It did work ok before..Version: 123.0

Open Tabs (IPhone XR)Saw someone else post something similar, but I can’t open or delete any of my past google tabs. If I create a new tab, then I can go to all tabs and delete/select it, but any tab that I don’t immediately delete is no longer accessible to me. I can still access favorited tabs, but the same problem happens. Essentially it’s this - I open one tab, it’s fine - I open another tab which is fine, now the first one is inaccessible - I open another tab, which works fine, but the previous two are now inaccessible -etc, on and on. This problem also happens when I leave the google app for a while, or swipe up. Because whenever I do that, returning to google then brings me back to the home screen of google, meaning that the previously fine tab is now inaccessible cause I (technically?) opened a new tab, even if this new tab doesn’t show up, but still causes the same problem..Version: 128.0

Getting very slow to bootGoogle now takes a good five seconds between being tapped and allowing its user to enter a search query. This is even with all of the assistant functions turned off and just the search function operational. It can be overcome by long pressing the icon and selecting quick serve however that too ads time. I’d love the ability to run the app in a raw search only mode where it hit else can lug the app down..Version: 113.0

Hum to google doesn’t workOnly reason i downloaded this app was to take advantage of humming to google. Feature doesn’t seem to be working on iPhone 12 Pro Max.Version: 137.2

F you googleGoogle is now forcing people to download its app to log into YouTube, and offers no other alternative. I will be deleting immediately.Version: 190

Not workingStopped working on my iPhone x a couple days ago. Uninstalled and reinstalled, reset my phone too. Still a no go..Version: 123.1

Google assistant rendered useless with the newest updateThe new update has stopped showing upcoming events. It is available in google assistant which is not supported in New Zealand..Version: 55.0

Worn you useing this app means future troublesThe point is that you may be happy after installing it and useing a while after, but then some "smart" engeneers make some improvements which makes app useless or it's very difficult to use. Then support usually doesn't help you, because the improvements improve the app right so how dare you have some objections. And then finally you realise how much time you have to spend to change an app to another, to set everything from the beginning. So this review should save you so much time and money, all you need just to not install it..Version: 125.1

Good as Expected but...This app basically does exactly what you’d think a Google app would do. For that reason, it’s a fine app. I deleted this app though because I didn’t see the advantage of keeping it when I could just use a mobile browser to search on Google. I wouldn’t even think twice about downloading this app again if it incorporated just 1 specific thing... the first is that I wish this app had a reverse image search feature similar to Pinterest’s. Google already has a reverse image search option for non-mobile users (PC, Mac, etc.) in the browser, but the Google app doesn’t have this function for mobile use. So I would think that a reverse image search right on your mobile device would be brilliant. I would probably delete my Pinterest app if the Google app had this function..Version: 49.0

Slow and laggy typingI have been using this app for the last 2 years almost everyday. But since the last few updates in September/October 2019 the app has been laggy and slow. I’m typing faster than the app can recognize. It takes it a few seconds before the text shows what I have actually typed into the search bar. I know it’s not just my phone being slow because I am able to write this review without the problem and text at my normal speed in iMessages and other apps with no issues. Additionally, the search results seem to take longer to appear. The app hangs and freezes from time to time. Websites are opening slowly, and stay blank for a while before opening or not at all. When I’m scrolling down a page it does not scroll smoothly, rather there are pauses and it lags behind. I thought the most recent update would fix the problem but it hasn’t. The actual search content wise is good but there are too many “related searches” and “related search results” displayed and not enough actual results displayed on the small screen. It usually shows about 10-12 results, and then a list of 8 related searches and results for potential searches. That ratio is too close and there should be more actual search results. Please fix this..Version: 84.0

Bug fixes didn’t workApp won’t even open after the last fix.Version: 123.0

Why should I report an issue with Google?

  1. Pulling issues faced by users like you is a good way to draw attention of Google to your problem using the strength of crowds.
  2. We have developed a system that will try to get in touch with a company once an issue is reported and with lots of issues reported, companies will definitely listen.
  3. Importantly, customers can learn from other customers in case the issue is a common problem that has been solved before.
  4. If you are a Google customer and are running into a problem, might not be the fastest and most effective way for you to solve the problem but at least you can warn others off using Google.

Is Google not working?

Google works most of the time. If it is not working for you, we recommend you excersise some patience and retry later or contact Google.
