  • New Read Aloud function crashes after 10sec


    By rayvicos
    Something like 3 updates ago google introduced the Read Aloud function which worked pretty well except it didn’t give you the option to highlight the words it was reading. You basically remained at the top of the page while it read. Then another update happened and instead of fixing that problem after about 10seconds the entire app crashes and when you re-open the app there is absolutely no history of the page in which it was just reading from! Oh yeah, the main reason I used this app was for the simple reason that before they changed everything about their layout and erased all my open tabs was that when I search something in google and tap one of the results, I didn’t have to tell it to open on a separate tab... it did it automatically! So if the result wasn’t what I was looking for, I would simply close it and reopen the tab with my search and click something different. Now it opens the result in the same tab so that if you follow a link to another link to another you now have to keep hitting the back button hoping you can get back to where you were. It was fine the way it was... the new convenient “in cognito” toggle is a nice touch at least. Please fix the “Read Aloud” crashing or put it back to where Siri can read it easily again.
  • Works for my iPad


    By Joedejong.mister horror?
    I googled my favorite musicians and I also googled the weather! Although my searches works pretty good the new update is pretty cool. I’m wondering if you can roll out new features turn off the notifications because I would like to be notified about my favorite musicians morning headlines and breaking news on my favorite musicians and my favorite wrestlers! What I meant to say was update the notifications so I can get notified about my favorite musicians and my favorite wrestlers and my favorite streaming services and my favorite movies. Because I have not been getting notified about my favorite wrestlers musicians and my favorite movies and streaming services while I am following my favorites! When I follow something that I like please notify me about the movies TV shows and musicians and my favorite wrestlers that I follow! Please keep updating more often you guys deserve five stars! You guys are awesome
  • Kinda dumb


    By SHREK_the_IV
    It takes forever to find what exactly I’m looking for like if I were to search is the sky blue google just pulls up a bunch of websites why can’t it just say yes or no it’s so annoying this is why I rarely use google and it’s not like other search engines are any better at this stuff but maybe you could just fix this it could be like a next gen thing because it’s not like it’s impossible for google to give me a yes or no answer it would just make things a lot better and easier to get what you want faster and I’d thing this would make lots of other people like google even more it this wer to change because I’ll spend hours trying to research one thing I really need the answer to for school and I could’ve literally asked any other human being the same question and got the answer almost immediately after finding out what it was so yeah kinda dumb
  • Slowly deteriorating


    By Nordic_Warrior
    Google 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.
  • New update AWFUL. Google image search useless.


    By MeghanSmith917
    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

    The only search engine I trust and has been my go to since the conception of the term. I’m really loving the personalized news feeds. As someone who intentionally avoids today’s unreliable news sources, especially from social media apps, the google news feed has been a welcome addition to my routine. I no longer have to miss out on reading articles I may be interested in because of my choice to not login to FB. Instead I often find articles I’m interested in through my google feed in between searching for things. Google Search is one of my top 5 most used apps. Their reliability and commitment to being the best in my opinion has hands down beat any other apps. I’m sticking with google for the long haul.
  • Losing pages.


    By kokokaylee
    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.
  • The Interface is Getting Cluttered


    By gtaboo
    It was nice having the streamlined layout of the app several versions before, and with every update version, the interface loads up with more buttons of questionable interest, and an excess of information that would be best left hidden or condensed. The tab feature is also getting cluttered with excessive numbers of saved pages after simple searches. I do not need a new window every time I want to view a new image, I just want to browse in peace. This is a petty and personal issue that doesn’t impede the app’s usefulness, so I will leave this with a decent rating, but I would greatly appreciate it if options for less screen filler were available in future updates. Thanks to whoever may see this.
  • Good as Expected but...


    By mcgrottydanny1
    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.
  • Google window on the bottom of screen


    By Wanting a fair game
    I 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.
