Google for Negative User Reviews

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

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

Can’t download from the cloudI can’t download this from the cloud. Please help.Version: 64.0

BugFound a minor bug when you close all your recent pages, it shuts down your phone... and mines on full percent... Overall good app! Better than Safari!.Version: 69.0

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

New Version Update Does Not WorkThe Updated version does not work for me as whenever I tried to click on the Google button, it tries to open the application but automatically closes it thereafter and does not give any error message. Is there a way I can revert to the previous version ?.Version: 123.0

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

Grandplayer33I play a game called Hotel Story, and have just found out my money total is not adding up, please fix this bug as I do not want to delete this game. Thank you..Version: 64.0

New updateI dont really like the new update as it will not load, or it will take along time. It wont let me watch any videos like it used to. Please change this!.Version: 55.0

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

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

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

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

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

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

No adding on browsers and getting lostBefore in Google I found it very easy to navigate with everything on one page and you could see what you had to work with, but now that is gone and I always get lost. The whole reason I downloaded Google was so that I could download Ocean Hero as a web browser, btw you should too it saves the planet, but still even with the new useless updates it still can’t download a web browser on iPad. I think it’s running before it has walked..Version: 211.1

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

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

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

Hate appStop asking my to use it.Version: 190

Stupid thingWhenever I go on YouTube the darn thing won't let me leave the video I'm on. I click " done", and I leave for just one second(in that time period, the screen is frozen) and it instantly goes full screen again. Stupid thing.Version: 34.1

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

What happened to 'delete all'?It used to be so simple to delete your search history and now I can't do it!!!! You have made it too complicated!.Version: 68.0

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

Latest version crashingLatest version is crashing on iOS 14.6.Version: 165.0

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

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

BogueL’application plante après 10 secondes après l’ouverture depuis le 5 mai, application inutilisable!.Version: 105.0

Google imagesMy google images won’t let me view and scroll the collection of images when you tap on it instead it takes me to the linked site. I don’t know if it’s just me or if it is part of the update but I don’t like it. If it is part of the update please revert back to the old way. Other then that the app is fantastic for searching and has helped me when I need to find something..Version: 61.0

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

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

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. Get your gear together Google, there are many complaints, do something about it!.Version: 137.2

Not as describedCannot hum or whistle song as described. I hit mic button and say, "Search song or find a song" as instructed and as soon as I say that it comes up search results for "find a song". There is no delay to allow me to even hum it.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

The song thing from the ad is not workingPlease do something.Version: 137.2

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

Missing PalestineThis map is inaccurate. It mislabels Palestine. Time for an update.Version: 159.0

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

Could be betterAll I want is to have the old style previous tab view..is 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

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

Read aloud option goneSomehow the read aloud option had gone inactive and cannot be activated with the new update....Version: 125.1

Crashing constantlyI’ve never had a problem with the app previously, however for the last week any time I open Google to use it, it crashes and closes within seconds. Long enough to type in my search some times before it closes again. I’ve updated both my iPad and the app and it’s still happening..Version: 111.0

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

Not for truthseekers or those who value privacy.Google is not for anyone who values their privacy as it tracks everything you see or do. Why should Google have access to your financial details? It tells you what it is able to access and that is one of things. If you are a truth seeker searching for the truth and real facts then Google is not for you, for instance all those millions of pages it searches soon dwindle down to only 2 or 3 when searching for content like ‘GeoEngineering’ or ‘contents of Chemtrails’ and those 2 or 3 pages are full of ‘fact checkers’ (bought and paid for by the Globalist Elite) stating that chemtrails don’t exist or geo engineering is not a thing. When you know there is a war on humanity right now and we are being sprayed like pesky bugs I would like to know what is in it but clearly Google don’t want you know.. WHY? do the employees not breath the same air as the rest of us? The AI algorithm that Google utilises doesn’t and as that is more in charge of censorship these days the facts are being hidden . People need to wake up fast and get this nefarious app off their phones!.Version: 218.0

TashPile of hot crAp.Version: 194.0

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

Good but flawedI like using google as a search engine app cause it’s easy to use and great for when I accidentally stumble across a scam/pop up website because of the arrow that brings you out of the whole website completely but when I try and use the read aloud feature it keeps freezing the app and then crashing closing the article I was listening to completely and not appearing in my history at all, please fix this issue.Version: 173.0

GlitchingI put one star so you actually see this and take it serious and google can try to fix it,on images when i tap an image and keep tapping others underneath it,if i press back to go onto the last image i saw it takes me back to all not even the image place so i have to rap image again,any image i clicked on before and want to revisit I can’t,this is a big deal as i have to go back and search for it again which i can’t because i have to click the exact same images i did before,which clearly is improbable,this is in my phone and I absolutely cannot work well with this.Version: 166.0

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

I’m not sure.I'd like to say that Google is a great, amazing app to browse in and search for advice; however, it's not very safe. It’s not safe because it shows all your recent searches, shows leaked stuff people have added and it doesn't let you delete personal stuff about you. Here is one of my issues on google, I've made accounts on social media and they are all on the public. Strangely, but stupidly, I've got the accounts to be on Google. I tried everything to get rid of it; but, nothing has worked. I've searched online about it and all that comes up is ‘use webmaster’ or ‘contact google’. The problem with this is that I have no clue how to contact google and when I use webmaster it asks for a URL, I gave them the URL and it non stops asking to redo. If this has ever happened to you please reply (if possible) and tell me how, Thank you..Version: 185.2

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

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

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

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

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

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. The last thing I want installed on any of my machines is adware/spyware from Google, Facebook, or any of their subsidiaries. Remember, folks: If you’re not paying for the product, YOU ARE THE PRODUCT..Version: 160.0

No support for headphonesAfter dropping headphone support dec 7, what is the point of this app? Would rate no stars if it was an option. Thanks for rendering my week old headphones (which have a google support button and aren’t compatible with Siri) already obsolete google. Will be deleting this..Version: 190

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

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

Keeps crashingThe update doesn’t load properly and keeps crashing. Worked better before update..Version: 46.0

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

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

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

Disappointing.App performance has been slipping for years. Recent updates have left the app completely unstable. There is an extremely long delay in launching the app and then it crashes after a few minutes of use. My suggestion is to focus on improving the app performance before adding new features or new layouts..Version: 105.0

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

App crashesWow. For a big company like google they cannot code apps which cannot crash. Should have tested first.Version: 105.0

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

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

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

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

New version keeps crashingSince the last update, it crashes when you try to search anything with it. The cards work, but when you manually try to make a “google” search, it goes blank (black screen) and crashes..Version: 73.0

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

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

Worst everWho ever developer did the newest updates has mental issues The new route suggestions appear exactly before an intersection and to make things interesting u can’t dismiss the suggestions and u are obligated to accept or to go like u were and wait for it to reroute This is the stupidest crap i ever seen when a driving app takes u were she wants to go and not were u want This is also extremely dangerous!!!!!!! Im not expecting the developers to reply to this anyway but in case someone people read this stay away from this crap…..I almost crashed 2 times because of it🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬.Version: 219.0

CrashYou have updated the app recently but it’s crashing now. Not even opening. Release an update soon. Thanks.Version: 185.0

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

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

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

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

WiredI can’t search anything when I use this App in my iPhone, it always tell me unable to get results with no network, but actually I can search what I want by Chrome APP in my phone at the exactly same time.

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

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

Used to love itI used to love this app, now I don’t. I don’t like the new tabs feature, and I don’t like how the theme is set to your phones dark or light mode. There are some apps I like in dark mode and some I like in light mode and I don’t like nothing able to choose which I use. I can change it in the gmail app, why can’t I change it in this? Edit:since writing this review, nothing has changed with the google app. The gmail app however forced dark or light theme so that has been deleted and replaced with Spark. The google app however seems to have shrank the back bottom on the bottom left of the screen, and the home button. I can’t press these buttons anymore. It’s extremely annoying. Please let someone with fingers bigger than a 4 year olds do some testing on your apps..Version: 162.0

Keeps crashingAfter the latest google app update, the app keeps crashing 30-60 seconds after I open it. Quite frustrating! Hopefully there’s a new update soon to fix it..Version: 102.0

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DownAll google services are down except when searching something up.Version: 137.2

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

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

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! Can you people at Google, quit playing games, read this and make your supposed search app more User-suppotive?.Version: 195.0

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

The Google app on my new iPhone and/or old iPhone is super buggy… I have uninstalled and installed and still to no avail… I am totally not happy because I use google to look up the latest stock news outside of Yahoo Finance and CNBC.. Another thing, if I read just one tiny Kardashian story, I would get 10 more KimK stories or similar suggestions.. I dare not read about my fav reality shows and that’s all I see.. not cool or if I read a funny story from India or other countries.. it’s all India, London or Africa topics afterwards.. When I pick subjects I like on purpose in settings, about 50% will only show up along with some random stuff I didn’t sign up for … But the biggest problem is the constant freezing and stalling for 45 seconds straight..

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

The new update..isn’t itI use google everyday I just wish they would add a setting where you can disable the new update they made two days ago (as of now)where there is a ‘preview’ of what your going to search like images related to what your searching and also when you search the images show up at the top and I don’t want that. I would like to be able to turn it off in settings.Version: 209.1

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

Google, please keep up the work!Like thousands of others we've spent twelve years building up a business online and along comes Gangster Google trying to squeeze the little man as usual and our business no longer appears in their search engine. 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. Google changed without telling us and now we're being inundated by touts with no business name trying to cash in on Google's dirty tactics. We can retire out of Googles grasp, but we feel sorry for the younger family businesses being strangled by Google..Version: 198.0

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

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

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

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. Switching to another map!!.Version: 179.0

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

Worst app everSOO hard to use I can’t even find the search bar the octagon is a bit much and should be removed if I could I would of given 0 stars 😡.Version: 225.0

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

App keeps closing, newsfeed not responsive to my interestsFor a while now this app has been getting worse. It now keeps closing when I am using it for some reason. Most annoying is the newsfeed. The algorithm takes no account of when I indicate I am not interested in a topic. It does not seem to be based on what I do like to search for and read. It has gotten worse recently. I even went to the Google site to try tweak settings after reading tips on how to manage the newsfeed. The topics I chose to follow still hardly ever feature. Things I try hide or block still keep coming up. It is annoying that you cannot block a topic, only a source. Only option is “see fewer stories like this” Well it doesn’t work!! Why not have “Not interested in .... ” So I keep getting stuff I have no interest in. Google please fix this!.Version: 176.0

Can’t search for songsI downloaded it only to find songs based on tunes since Shazam can only find songs if they are sung by the original singer. first used in French and it just kept clicking out and realised it couldn’t even search for songs in that language. I then switched to English and when I asked “What’s this Song?” It went to a google page called “what’s this song”, and when I asked “what song is playing” it went to a google search page called “Song”. Like seriously.Version: 195.0

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

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

Hum a song doesn’t existDownloaded to try the “hum a song” feature but it doesn’t actually exist. No other reason to use it over a regular browser.Version: 137.2

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

Frustrating serviceFrustrated that my google app takes forever to load 😡 This seems to have only started happening in the last 2 weeks and getting more frustrating! I know that it has nothing to do with the storage on my phone as I have plenty of space and even deleted other apps to make more room. Have also deleted all cookies, internet history etc and the app is still frustratingly slow to load, often crashing in the process 🤬.Version: 47.0

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

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

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

…yikesI’ve always used Google, mainly more for simplicities sake than anything else, but as of late the app has risen my stress level so much so that I’d make the contestants on Squid Game seem easy going in comparison. I can’t use the app for more than two minutes before it closes itself and I have to start my search again or find the tab I was in, only for it to constantly repeat again and again… and again. I’m one minor inconvenience away from either jumping headfirst out the window or committing mass genocide against an unsuspecting colony of spiders who think my house is their own..Version: 186.0

Terrible serviceMy first time going to a Tim Hortons and it wasn’t a pleasant experience. The staff where walking round like they didn’t want to be there, not one member of staff smiled whilst my son and I was there. Our order was a take away the lady behind the counter asked if our order was so and so number I replied yes and she walked off and started on another order just left our order on a tray. We had 4 drinks that we had to reach over the counter to get the take away tray to put our drinks in. I had to check that it was our order as she didn’t even say anything. I wouldn’t mind it wasn’t even busy. Don’t think I will go back again in a hurry.Version: 213.0

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
