I really don’t understand all the negative reviews
that this app gets. Nobody has ever complained to me about how the app is poorly functioning. I use this app in class and it really helps me. One of the only things I have a problem with is the way the platform is laid out. Sometimes I have trouble reaching my teachers assignments because the platform isn't laid out the right way and I can’t seem to figure it out. besides that Google classroom creates folders and organized sessions where you can easily get to your assignments. I really liked this app because I thought it was super easy to where it told you missing assignments, assignments that are due the next day or next week, and so on. or my favorite things about this is there is a to do list because it shows you every assignment that you are missing and have completed. I find this very helpful because sometimes I don’t feel like checking every single teacher‘s class and seeing if I have any assignments. I don’t know why people rate this so low. I’ve read a lot of reviews and they say that things are organized incorrectly, the app crashes and freezes a lot, etc. none of this has ever happened to me. anyway, if you’re reading this right now I think this is a great app and I totally recommend it to anyone who is struggling finding apps to keeping assignments organized. have a good day!
Awesome app but one thing....(Devs Plz read)
Google Classroom is one of the best school apps I have used. It is easy to navigate, and its very interactive. I had never had a problem with it in my life until now. During COVID-19 almost all of us have had our work done on Classroom. I don’t know if this affects anything but let me say this, to turn in work is a huge problem. I have never realized this before but since all of my work is now on Classroom, it has been nearly impossible to keep track of what has been turned in or not. I’ve tried using the Calendar feature in Classroom to keep track but sometimes the work doesn’t show up on there. What happens to me is that I do the work, then I move on to different work and end up not turning the first work in. This usually happens when there is no work attached to the turn in button but instead to the actual assignment. I finish it, but then forget to press “Mark as Done”. Even then, sometimes when I know I have turned it in, it DOESN’T TURN IN. In the end I still do think this app is awesome. Besides from the above complaint it is very easy to do things like organize work or talk with your peers( stream ). But developers, please please add a a feature where it makes it easier to know if you still have to turn something in. I think it would greatly help everyone using your app.
better than on school issued computer
As much as I hate to say it, this app is actually a lot more helpful to me than doing it on our school issued computers. I know people are giving Google Classroom bad reviews because they want it to be taken off of the App Store so that they don’t have to do their work, but I prefer using this app to using the computer, because number one, you get notifications, number two, when you open the app, it shows you what’s due, and number three, I don’t have a million tabs open like I do on my computer. Anyone I know will tell you that I hate school, but I actually quite enjoy using this app to do school work on my phone. It’s way more compact than a computer, you can take it anywhere and don’t have to worry about wifi, everything is right there and easy to use, and it’s just less to carry overall. In fact, just today I was able to finish two assignments from my phone while I was in the car thanks to this app. I definitely recommend the Google Classroom app to anyone who uses it, but also anyone who has a busy life or doesn’t have a lot of free time to sit down and work on school.
By dont listen to my reviews
ok i know everyone was giving it 1 star cause like it was a trend or what not, but there are some real issues that just really made me uninstall.
1 is the fact i don't have notifications and when i do, it's usually last minute like "hey you have world history honors assignment due in 1 minute." and i was astonished at how google advertises V.S. how it actually is.
2 is how there so many controls for it and sometimes blacks out, or just freezes not just the app, but all together. my phone included. this app needs serious rework done to it. i just thought the 1 start reviews really was just the trend, but me and several thousand others have the same issues, which is why this app is getting 1 star. i mean if you are gonna develop an app, program, do it right, or at least fix what needs to get fixed, and listen to your "reviewers" if you would do it right the first couple of times, this app would be better. but until then, you should take the app down for some MAJOR reconstruction if you will. i think there's still time to whip this app back into shape. it's not us who can do it, but google, it's you. please fix this the teachers trust you, and never listen to us
I have a problem but overall it’s pretty good
I’ve been using google classroom for my online school so I’ve been using it for a couple months. Honestly I have no real problems other than the notifications. I personally like using notifications on my iPad so I can know when new assignments are posted and just announcements in general. The problem is though that the notifications come a bit later then when the assignment is posted. I expected them to come as soon as the assignment was posted but I noticed that it comes a bit later. It’s happened a couple times now. I mean it’s only a couple minutes so it’s not that bad but I’ve read reviews that said it’s been a lot longer or even a couple minutes before the assignments due. This problem should be fixed quickly because it’s a problem many people have. Not just me but a bunch of people. People are also getting their assignments late and honestly that’s not something good. Thank you for reading this and I hope you fix this problem quickly.
so all these reviews are bad reviews because since google classroom is a app used for online class, kids just wanna get rid of it. I'm a middle schooler myself using google classroom because of covid-19, and its amazing! i do it from my laptop, but having it on a phone as well is very, very useful! you get notifications if you're teacher posts an assignment, returns and assignment, grades something, and many more!! it’s also really helpful if you use GOOGLE MEET! if your teacher has the google meet link attached to their profile, if your laptop isn’t loading, joining on your phone is very helpful! no issues what so ever. 4 stars instead of 5 because there is one thing i want to say. let us change our profiles pictures no matter what account or device we are using!! ok, but other than that, AMAZING!!! don’t listen to the negative reviews, there 99% kids that just hate school and want to get rid of it. so i’ll stop talking!! i know it was long, but google classroom is the best!! <3 keep it up!!💕
Average but needs more work
By haley ✨
This app obviously is very average, it is fine and gets the job done. And I’m not writing this review just to have it one star, because it’s been affecting my grades. Recently, it has been super glitchy for me. I will turn in an assignment, but a few minutes later, it will say I never turned it in. The first time this happened, my teacher gave me a bad grade because of this. Also, when I mark something as done (because sometimes we don’t need to attach documents or anything) It shows up as missing. This has caused me a lot of anxiety lately, because I don’t know whether my assignment is actually going to show up or not. It also doesn’t let me attach slide shows, which has been a hassle for me to get the slide shows in. I have to say that if Google is running a huge company, I think they can afford some extra tech support and tweak a few things so that it supports more users all at once without glitching out or not showing our assignments as done. This has been really annoying to me and surely they can make a few changes to make it easier for students to not feel extra stress on top of the pandemic.

I do not why so many people are giving it negative reviews. This app works very fast and people who say it is glitchy and slow, probably just have either bad network connection or slow technology. This app is a great format for my classroom since I am doing online school. This app helps not waste paper and my teachers seem to enjoy it. Even though I am still figuring out new features from updates it is a great app. This app has helped me stress less about school since I’m doing it online. It’s an easy and cool format to use. The only improvement I would make is that when doing work we should be able to upload to google drive without going through a lot of work. Other than this the app is great especially for my school. I give this app 5/5 stars. It’s very efficient and easy to use. Any teacher or student would love this app. I’m a student and so far this app has been great. Overall google classroom is a great app! 👍😃
Very useful app!
I really like this app because if people are sick or quarantined, they can still do their work and not have to catch up when they get back to school. In fact, some of my classmates that quarantined are ahead of us! Sometimes it can be confusing, but just ask your teacher to help you understand the app. That’s what teachers are for people! Also, I’m sick and tired of these people who think that they can just skip school because they give the app a low rating. They don’t even give a reason why it’s quote on quote “terrible”. They just say it’s glitched or hard. Some people just put that they don’t like school. I mean, sometimes school can be hard for some people, like bullies, mean teachers, and all of that. But.. seriously.. we are strong, we can get over that. Also, to all of those people who want to shut down Google Classroom, the teachers will probably give you harder work when it’s gone. Good luck with that, hon.
Awesome app, but some recommendations for the future
To start off, I don’t understand any of the negative reviews this app has been given, whether it is a trend or whatnot.
As a student, I have enjoyed working with my teachers in Google Classroom. I also have one of my own for fun. Google classroom is reliable, fast, and overall great.
Also, Google Classroom allows me to easily communicate with my teachers via private comments.
However, I think that Google classroom should have some changes of the following:
-Allow teachers to activate a “grace period” feature wherein students have a several hour to 1 day period to turn in work if internet problems happen, or submissions don’t process in time.
-Allow students to see teacher comments under the “private comments” or “turn in” button/section, rather than having to open the document or slide
-Allow teachers to schedule grade releases and private comments (so we students don’t get waken up at 1 in the morning when our device goes off saying that my teacher returned something)
Also, PLEASE, PLEASE make notifications appear on time! It takes 30 seconds to 1 minute for me to see that my teacher posted something. Please optimize this wait period.
Other than that, I think Google classroom deserves a 4 star rating. I don’t have many issues, just recommendations right here. However, these recommendations are crucial, and it would greatly improve the speed, reliability, and the 1.5 star rating.
