Good but I have a problem
by Cleffa416 on 2021/04/16 03:44
When I try to open the YouTube website I want the website not the app. It automatically takes me to the YouTube app but not Reddit, Twitch, or any other app and this annoys me please fix I will edit if fixed Otherwise a great app, usually pretty fast even with my slow WiFi, works well on cellular, and gives accurate data
LENS
by healer213 on 2021/04/16 02:19
I have a fascination with wildlife and plants where I wonder what the names of everything around me is - grass, flowers, birds (especially), insects, etc. Google Lens has been such a help to satisfy that curiosity. Sometimes I used to go days wondering, searching, scouring manuals and field books and everything trying to figure out what that bird was - but with Google Lens, I just point and click and usually the answer is spot on. I’ve had it mistake ravens for crows on occasion and vice versa, but humans do that too. By far, Lens is the best product I have with Google and honestly, I’d love to have it as a standalone app.
No network connection on google lens
by Tinycreature on 2021/04/15 23:12
My app was working before the last update of the app. Now when I try to use lens it says no network connection I’m starting to hate this app!

Really sucky and unnecessary
by Yee Yes clan on 2021/04/15 22:40
You could honestly use safari for this and it’d be a lot more easier and more efficient. First of all it never lets you sign into things incognito- it always makes you sign out to use google. Second of all, it always randomly cuts out and says “this webpage is unavailable” when my wifi connection is strong and I don’t have any other tabs open. On safari, none of these things happen, and it’s already installed into your device.
Cant hum or whistle a song in this app.
by Fgmrobbie on 2021/04/15 19:05
False advertising. It states all you have to do is hum or sing or whistle a song and it will find it. And it Literally types random words that sound like my humming and searches those instead of trying to find the song. This was the only reason I downloaded the app. So I’ll delete it now. Thanks.

Excelente aplicación, tiene muchas funcionalidades esta misma app, se puede hacer muchas cosas desde buscar una música que estemos escuchando, para saber quien la canta, tararear una música y la busca, un apartado de noticias, y la integración de google Lens, que nos ayuda hacer muchas cosas en una sola app. Estoy contento con esta aplicación no tengo quejas.
Lens Slide option
by DjCiego on 2021/04/14 22:46
There needs to be a switch to enable or disable to Lens Slide feature. It’s so annoying when I’m trying to scroll through the feed and instead of scrolling up or down .. the Lens tries to slide over .. please add a toggle!!!

The hum feature
by Western Meadowlark on 2021/04/14 18:17
I downloaded this app because I really wanted to find this song that’s been stuck in my head but I can’t remember the words or what it’s called so I downloaded the app and then I couldn’t find the button that actually let you try and find the song so it’s dumb and I’m gonna have to delete it
Great App
by Wren496 on 2021/04/14 15:14
Amazing app, I use Google LLC all the time, my only complaint is that whenever you are on a website and then exit to the main page, it keeps unknowingly saving the pages you went to in the recent tab, so you end up with like a thousand pages open at the same time.

Good but so frustrating!
by Scott Mahrle on 2021/04/14 00:33
This is THE most annoying thing about the Google app for iPhone: I open the app and scan the stories. A lot of them look great and I want to read them. I pick one, read it, then swipe to go back to the list. The list is in view just long enough to see the story I want to read next but then the whole list refreshes and all the original stories are replaced. I can’t scroll down to get to the original list—it’s just gone. And whatever is on the new list, I really don’t care because it can’t be as good as the old one. I don’t think the world changed that much in 2 minutes. It feels like Black Mirror 4/4 (Hang the DJ).
Amazing app!
by 🤍24k_vibezzz🤍 on 2021/04/13 23:27
This app has really helped me throughout the years, like searching for pictures, videos, questions, and pictures. Sometimes I think you should add some stuff, but that’s not very important. The new widget helps so much, so I don’t have to keep clicking on the app and clicking the search button. That’s all I needed to say, Thank you!
Broken
by HotSauce Taej on 2021/04/13 20:54
Every attempt I make to search something I get the no network connection pop up. I have service and data, and also WiFi. This app just refuses to cooperate. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing works.
Song search doesn’t work
by Jew_Pac on 2021/04/13 20:38
If you’re downloading for the search songs by humming feature. It doesn’t have that. Like it’s just not a feature at all. When you hum instead of searching for the thing you hummed it just does nothing

News feed is so bad it's surreal
by AdamantVision on 2021/04/09 03:41
For the longest time, I really enjoyed this app as a combination Google search bar and customized news feed. And for a while it was great! It reminded me of Google's discontinued iGoogle homepage. But something significant changed not long ago and the news feed is basically just random trash that I've never told Google I'm interested in. In fact, no matter how many times I tell the app I'm not interested in a topic or person or source or whatever, it just continues to show me more. It's laughable what it decides I'm going to want to see. Disappointing, because it used to be a regular piece of my news perusal. Now it's worthless and no amount of interaction seems to help the "algorithm" figure out what I wanna see. Come on, Google. You own so much data on me already that you should be able to figure me out. Especially with my help.
Amazing app!

by CGaaf on 2021/04/05 01:24
The new app changes removed the share function from the bottom toolbar. This makes it difficult for me to open in safari to save later and makes it difficult for me to share pages with others. Google please bring this feature back.

The share menu disappeared so I can’t open pages and save them to Evernote, email or text, or anything one usually does with the share menu. I didn’t even realize how much I used it until it disappeared. Now I don’t use this app nearly as much. I might as well just use Google in a web browser.

Google accounts angers me 😤
by zeeeereeerere on 2021/04/02 21:42
Hey google, the live video is probably done by now, but that’s only one of my complaints. While I was watching a YouTuber who playing Roblox I figured out that he was live and I could talk to him on chat but then I needed to sign into YouTube but I forgot my password. So I clicked on forgot password and it told me to put in my phone number so I put in my phone number also I want to say that my email has my first and last name in it. So then it told me to put my first and last name and then when it did it didn’t recognize me so I tried 3 more times and then to “make sure I’m not a robot it told me type the the word I hear or see and then when I did it told me to try again. And after I pressed try again a couple of times it asked to type the word I see again so I typed it but the it tilde me to do it again and again and AGAIN and I raged while telling myself that the live stream was probably over by now and then I got so mad that I went to write a 0 star review and that is why I’m writing this review. Oh, and 1 last thing I have to say is how many times am I going to see “This nickname is taken” when I’m sending this😤.

incognito bug
by lurkinglinguine on 2021/03/29 21:32
if you exit incognito through the pop up any search you do after will not go through and requires the app to restart, which is annoying and inconvenient especially in an emergency. also, before i turned off cards id frequently get blasted with sensationalist, COVID related news articles (which were often opinion pieces), which was probably the result of me googling my state’s stats every once in a while. definitely not a good feature to have on as a default especially considering the supposed relationship between the pandemic/frequent news exposure and poor mental health. other than that, OK app
Why?

Dumbing down Google
by A. Legorreta on 2021/03/27 18:23
I used to love going to the google app to see live football (the one you play with your feet that is) match scores and statistics. Well, now they removed the statistics, so now I need a new app to follow those. I do not understand why google would ever want to take vital sports functionality away from their users, but I guess dumbing down the app is the new normal.
I’m disappointed
by Amy Sweetwater on 2018/11/02 20:47
I know people may not have a problem with this but my google is being annoying right now. So usually when I would search up images, it would show some other images once I click on it. Then I have the option to save and that. Now every single time I click on a picture, it sends me to the website on where it’s from. I don’t want the website, I just wanna see the picture and save it on my camera roll. Now it’s annoying how long it takes me save an image. I’m always seeing the website with its picture. I sometimes like the other photos under that image I search up. I sometimes wanna save them. Now? it takes me at least two-four minutes just to save a picture. I just want my old google back :(
Keeps deleting my tabs
by nickthedestroyer server44 on 2020/12/21 16:30
I 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.

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
Song hum feature
by Sekandis on 2020/12/21 12:34
Every 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.
Slowly deteriorating
by Nordic_Warrior on 2020/10/10 03:05
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.

by Tfffrdee on 2018/07/25 13:00
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.
New update AWFUL. Google image search useless.
by MeghanSmith917 on 2019/03/29 02:14
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
Losing pages.
by kokokaylee on 2018/03/28 20:19
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 on 2017/11/03 03:41
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 on 2018/05/17 13:57
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.
Just keeps getting worse and worse.
by Nikki.rose0607 on 2020/10/29 19:46
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.
Unsatisfied
by Big hole2011 on 2020/06/13 02:50
Google 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.
Google window on the bottom of screen
by Wanting a fair game on 2017/10/09 23:50
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.
Open Tabs (IPhone XR)
by Atlas_07 on 2020/10/07 19:21
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.
Has been my favorite app but has been crashing for weeks now
by Petisa30 on 2020/05/31 14:04
This 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.
Good App, only one problem
by Blazing Heart on 2017/12/29 22:22
I’ve been getting this pop up lately on Google and Google Chrome that basically says “Congratulations, you have been selected...” and all that. It’s a scam. It’s really consistent and it won’t go away even after clearing my cookies on my phone. It doesn’t happen on Safari and only on Google products on my phone. I tried deleting the app and I even reset my phone and nothing has worked. One way you can improve is to add a feature to Google that stops frequent pop ups like that because this is getting out of hand. That’s the only problem I have with it, everything else is fine. And trust me, it’s not just me who is dealing with all of this. I hope this will be solved soon.
Link to maps usually fails
by Wax and refuel on 2018/06/20 20:31
Generally 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.
Services NOT received (NYT subscription) and no way to dispute
by MoveToAmend on 2020/08/07 12:54
I’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.
Google lens gone??!!
by Punkin' Pooh on 2020/03/07 19:19
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??!!!!
Very disappointed
by Pls lust lemme post things;-; on 2019/06/04 00:34
Okay 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.
Once critical app now unstable under iOS12
by dj jon bates on 2018/12/23 07:46
I 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.
Fix History and Images
by Hello Person03 on 2019/03/23 02:37
The way you delete and look at your search history along with Google images has recently been updated, and it needs to go back. First off, the best feature of your Search History, the ability to delete all of it at once, has been removed and replaced with a day by day basis which is much more difficult to manage. Also, the way you view images when you search has been changed and looks atrocious. It’s clunky, and you can no longer look at images in full screen. It appears to be a terrible attempt at trying to make it look like the desktop image search. Please, please, bring back the old History and Images search, as they are superior and easier to use than what has been added.
Could be an amazing app but...
by MusicalDragon350 on 2018/06/30 18:45
I really like this app, but lately I have been pretty frustrated with it. This wasn’t happening at first, but now when I open the recently visited websites tab after I’ve been using the app to try and navigate to another page it won’t go to the page I want. It is happening fairly often too. It’s not that big of a deal, because I can get there by either typing it into the address bar or closing out of and restarting the app (sometimes this doesn’t work though). But it’s a real pain and can prevent me from setting aside a page or make me lose my progress on something like it just recently did. The mishap is actually what prompted me to write this review. If this problem were to go away the app would get a full 5 stars from me.
Swipe keyboard
by JenningsGraham on 2018/01/13 14:44
The reason I have this app is for the swipe keyboard. This may be the single greatest feature of this app, as my major complaint about iPhones has always been the lack of one. However, since the latest update (11.2.1), there has been quite a lag between me finishing a word and it being entered onto the screen. If I type too fast, words sometimes won't get displayed as they get"typed over." This is extremely frustrating and completely ruins the point of swipe (fast texting), and therefore, the app (in my particular case). It may be an Apple issue, since it has only been happening since the most recent update, but there may be something you guys can do about it. This is a 5 star app, but since the update has been a 2 star app. Please fix this issue. (I have an iPhone SE if that matters at all) Thanks
New Update
by Notmyphone6401 on 2020/10/04 10:02
Update: it seems like it’s gone back to how it was before, much appreciated! There are still a few freezes here and there where I have to restart the app, but nothing worth writing home about. I’m not a fan of the page changes of the most recent update. The Share button is now where the Bookmark button was, which is now where the Refresh button was, which is just gone for some reason. Also they got rid of the back button in the top left that allowed you to go back from the Open-in-new-tabesque feature, which is a major inconvenience to be honest. Overall not happy with it. It just seems like a pointless change that doesn’t make much sense.
What happened
by Tina633 on 2018/06/04 23:21
Google has been the word that changed social media as well as the internet almost as soon as Google hit the internet. We no longer just "browsed" the internet or "searched", we now "googled" and soon just about everyone knew exactly what we were talking about. To google became the very personification of searching for info on the internet. Not sure what happened but I just deleted google as it has gone wonky. At first I thought it was just my iPad but when all the other apps are working as well as they ever did...except for google, it had to be the app, or google. Can't give it five stars as a result. It seems even google has issues. Just doesn't seem as reliable as before.
Doesn’t work half the time
by mandaraffe on 2021/02/26 13:10
I’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
Slow and laggy typing
by Shortish gurl on 2019/10/11 08:12
I 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.
Only works half the time
by monstertruk on 2019/08/05 20:47
I used to really enjoy this app, I’ve been using it for a few years now. Now it seems like ads are the priority, not content. Annoying ads are the first to load, content comes second. What prompted me to write this review was when I was trying to finish an article, the content repeatedly disappeared on the page, the ads stayed in place of course, causing me to constantly refresh. The load/refresh rate is always slow, even on a fast connection. Not to mention I get pop-ups that take over my screen on a regular basis. Is this how Google treats its users? Not to mention the biased search results and cards. I consider myself a moderate, but the mentioned items are always politically skewed. How about some variety Google? Stop treating your users as statistics and data mines. Fix these issues.
Very good app, however only one problem
by Chicken6042 on 2018/02/06 02:03
I use google all the time for researching in school homework and useful website etc. However, sometimes I search a topic up. Let’s say I searched up “How to cook waffles.” Then I wanna search something else up, let’s say I wanna search up “how to cook eggs” now the problem here is when I search a second thing it should say on the search bar that I searched “how to cook eggs” but for some reason instead of saying that. It shows “how to cook waffles.” And if I search something else up that topic will show but “how to cook waffles” will still be there. Now it’s not a big deal but it just gets really annoying when it happens.
Would be a good beta version
by Bill in Akron on 2019/06/23 23:22
It is nice to have the Google app to curate news stories. The most recent version as of June 2019 makes it appear to be easier to tweak seeing news you like and deemphasize stuff not of interest. Unfortunately you still need a separate app to follow the stock market. There are still bugs where the app says it can’t contact Google’s servers to update stories or web pages you’ve been reading suddenly are replaced with a white screen: “the web page is currently unavailable. There are also random times when the main page only displays one or two articles. Instead of adding features, I would rather Google fix the usability issues of previous versions that are still in this version.

Um, photos automatically go to links now?
by Invaderrain on 2018/11/02 17:48
I loved using google but now it’s odd to use because I wanted to look up photo references for a project of mine and now every time I tap on an image it goes to the website and sometimes you have to dig on some of those websites it takes you to just to find the darn image. It’s odd considering the fact that if you use the actual google website on a laptop the images don’t do this but now on phones they decided that it would be a good idea? Not a very good one at all. Also, when you’re trying to look up arguments on both sides and it only shows more left side leaning even though I’ll specifically look up the right view because I need both sides for an actual good political debate for my government class.
Need to be able to turn off articles and trending
by PiratePremtice on 2017/12/17 20:32
I love this app for its core features, including weather, sports, and keeping up with appointments and traffic. I ABSOLUTELY do not want to see 1000 articles about politics on my google app. Yes you can turn a story off one by one, but you need an option to be able to turn off articles altogether. I also abhor you telling me what’s trending when I’m about to search for something. If I’m trying to google a recipe, why should the first thing I see be the latest garbage out of Washington? Seriously who thought this up? Some people might want that but I know how to find the news when I want to see it, and I don’t want to see what the internet is thinking about during EVERY google search. This is not a feature for me and needs to be able to be turned off!
Horrible app update
by Alxndr9 on 2019/05/11 02:14
I have been using this app for as long as I can remember. I don’t know what happened to this app but it used to be amazing. I used this app to replace safari. Until one stupid update. For some reason there is no history anymore in the “recent searches” anymore. Witch is stupid. If I didn’t want to show my history, that’s what incognito is for. I cannot find a way to change it and no one is willing to help because they don’t know what I’m talking about. Another problem if the images tab. You cannot go full screen on photos anymore. Which was very helpful for zooming in. Another problem is the constant freezing and crashing. I have never had a problem with this app. EVER. I physically cannot use it for more then 5 minutes without the app needing to be restarted. Very disappointed. And I used to use google for literally everything.
MAJOR ISSUE NEEDS TO BE FIXED
by CaTa613 on 2018/06/22 00:37
Hey google, Lemme start by saying hat I love your app. It’s efficient, smart, and the best search engine! I just have one major issue that needs to be fixed. When I look up TV shows, what really helps is that I can see the exact time and channel a TV show will be airing on TV. Instead of browsing my TV guide for hours, this is way more useful. However, it appears that you have removed that feature and it has become incredibly frustrating and annoying. That’s one of the main reasons I loved the app, because of the “TV guide.” So can you please bring it back? That will allow me and many others to continue enjoying the app at its fullest. Thank you and please fix this.
Horrible News Feed, Censored Search Results, Many Bugs
by lies2purify on 2019/12/02 10:10
Update: December 2, 2019...it seems the broken Dark Mode is gone. Back to the intense whjrrhhhrh ——————————————— Current problem: Searching images/memes, attempt to save to phone...app freezes on “fetching” overlay, unable to cancel or go back, have to force close app. Other Constant Problems: News Feed: Absolutely horrible and biased. I set it to not show me news about sports or trump...spams me with both. Spams meaningless news about the Kardashian’s and other useless people...I check off ”Don’t show me Stories of/from (TOPIC/SUBJECT)” I refresh the app...here’s more of what I told it not to show. Topics I Would Enjoy: It shows 6 articles in a row of the same subject/title from different sources. Extremely Old News: It shows news articles as highlights or something I may be interested in...from 3 years ago. And it won’t remove the article for weeks or months. I had an article about Slipknot that was two years old that remained on news feed for about three months and would not go away no matter what I did. I’ve reported all these issues through the app, but I assume they are falling on deaf ears. I enjoyed this app for my daily news and always trusted google for searches...many subjects are now extremely censored.
I feel hostage to this latest version
by ANYTHING BUT THIS APP on 2019/05/11 03:46
Somehow, someway, and without my consent,my google search app for iPhone was “upgraded” to the latest “beta” version recently. I noticed the difference immediately on 5/1/19. The entire app displays search results in a chaotic, frenzied, disjointed fashion that is infuriating. Search on Google images?? Ha! It’s enough to cause an instant migraine! What the heck is going on? All Google image search results now display in some bizarre quasi-ad format. Desperate, I literally called Google, which, I didn’t even know was a thing, searching for answers. After 35 minutes of bouncing around I was told I was selected for some beta test version of the new Google search. I was told there is no way to revert back to the prior version. Perfect. Very good Google. I ordered vanilla ice cream Google, but feel free to force-feed me the double chunk peanut butter ice cream that I am highly allergic to. Wow.
Love it but needs a fix.
by blake everette. on 2018/11/02 09:56
I love the google app. In fact I use it more often than I use safari. The app is quick it’s simple and it is very convenient. HOWEVER, upon using it this early morning, I noticed a change. When I go to type in something, for example “cute cats”, it will of course bring up the links and websites with related photos. Although that is helpful, when I move my finger to the right and tap on images the images are brought up in a gallery as usual. The problem lies where when I am scrolling through I tapped a photo to see it closer, which is how I’m used to doing. But instead of that picture popping up, when I tapped it or any image, it just jumped and brought me to the actual website. Super frustrating.
A little buggy
by Oktoberfest914 on 2018/09/16 03:38
I’ve used this app for many years, but over the past year or so it has got buggy. First, switching to incognito can take literally a minute or longer. Why? Same for switching back from incognito. Then when searching it will all of a sudden blank out the bottom half of the page where you can no longer see any search results. You have to research to see all results again. Finally, when opening the app it takes several seconds to begin a search. You’ll begin typing only to discover it wasn’t ready and see just the last few letters of your search result showing in the search box. Weird. Why does it take so long? These issues don’t occurs with the Chrome app, so what’s up Google?
Wonderful app for daily lifestyle
by nammai25 on 2020/06/06 16:07
Google is my friend, and this app makes the power of the famous search engine accessible in just a few taps. Like its desktop counterpart, the Google app makes it easier to find what I really need, without the hassle of using another rival search engine or looking in the newspaper every day. In addition to keeping up with my personal and favorite interests, this app allows me to keep tabs on the news, the current weather, and other things. In short, Google is the only source AND search engine I trust each day to get things done. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed! 🙂
Lost swipe feature, and app closes
by SimplyAskew on 2018/08/24 19:04
Update: I have lessened another star, because lately when I click on a suggested article to open, the google app closes and takes me to my home screen. It also happens when I type in a search. Not all the time, but often enough. I use google all the time, for the most random searches. I enjoy the cards and article suggestions (usually). I loved the ability to swipe to clear after reading or to dismiss. That swiping feature seems to be gone, and I find it irritating I now have to open a menu on a card and choose to hide an article. First world problems, I know, but why would google remove a feature of such convenience? Five stars if it returns (please, google!)
App broken
by skynet131 on 2020/06/22 06:14
After latest update last month, crashes after 30 seconds, every single time. Used to be the go to search and news but it’s so broken right now I’m contemplating just deleting the app on my iPhone. Had to download a new search app. Update. Deleted and downloaded the app. Seems to have fixed the crashing issue. Heard that other apps are also not updating properly and you have to delete and re download the app instead to get. Bit annoying but as long as it works in the end I’ll have to do it. I’ve gotten used to google search same news format so I’m happy to have it back and not crashing every 30s.
News feed is so bad it's surreal
by AdamantVision on 2021/04/09 03:41
For the longest time, I really enjoyed this app as a combination Google search bar and customized news feed. And for a while it was great! It reminded me of Google's discontinued iGoogle homepage. But something significant changed not long ago and the news feed is basically just random trash that I've never told Google I'm interested in. In fact, no matter how many times I tell the app I'm not interested in a topic or person or source or whatever, it just continues to show me more. It's laughable what it decides I'm going to want to see. Disappointing, because it used to be a regular piece of my news perusal. Now it's worthless and no amount of interaction seems to help the "algorithm" figure out what I wanna see. Come on, Google. You own so much data on me already that you should be able to figure me out. Especially with my help.
UwU
by bazookatagz on 2017/10/02 02:48
so i know this app isn't that great for searching, it's slow, eats up data ofc and ultimately is a pale imitation of a browser, but my heart is so warmed by the fact that every night i get a pop up weather notification that tells me the temperature changes that i felt literally COMPELLED to come give a five star rating. i know, it's people like me that make this system a joke, but they've got four stars already. they do impress me, because i'm couch surfing and definitely don't wanna spend a night on the street when it's snowing or raining, or after a 20° drop, and they do provide a pretty direct, accurate service that most other apps can't.
Annoying bug
by Sfet4829 on 2020/02/06 22:10
Google has worked flawless for me in the past with zero issues until about 8 months ago and still til today.. whenever I google something or somewhere I need to go and click the directions button, it USED to seamlessly work and automatically start the directions there for me. But now when I click it, it opens my maps BUT doesn’t add the address or start the directions at all!! I have to manually go back and get the address and type it in. Some may say it’s a minor inconvenience but when you have to go to a weird address or a long address it becomes rather annoying VERY quickly and that just so happens to be the case for me especially in the past 6 months. PLEASE fix it PLEASE!!
Climate denialism
by naturalprocess on 2019/11/16 04:04
I often read articles on climate change because I’m concerned about it. I noticed a few months ago I started getting almost daily climate denial articles on the home page of my google app. Of course these articles always seem to be from spurious sources and thus far I haven’t clicked on them because I don’t want the algorithm feeding me more climate denialism articles. Today, frustrated at yet more climate denialism articles appearing on my home page, I actually googled why that might be happening and found out that google has been funding climate denialism (as per many sources), and other users have actually experienced the same flood of climate denialism articles on their home page. I’m creeped out and concerned enough to write this review and switch to DuckDuckGo for my search needs.
Can’t delete history
by Gobro gopro on 2018/06/04 18:32
You used to be able to easily click a button that said “delete history”. They’ve updated it and you cannot do that anymore. Now you have to individually delete the search history from each previous day, and it doesn’t even work! I deleted my history from today, yesterday, and 2 days ago and then voila the history from today that I just “deleted” is right back in front of me. If googles fixes this or brings it back to the way it was before where it was much better, I’ll change my review Update: way better now that they’ve fixed it. Love the app.
Very user friendly
by Prof_Siracha on 2017/11/03 05:26
I love, love, love the google app! It never leaves my home bar! The app creates a personalized web/news feed that keeps me updated on things that matter most to me. Everything about app, from the layout to the feed keeps me going back here to look things up instead of safari. However, I always find that google is better for searching up quick facts, such as definitions and numbers, rather than opening websites. Other than that, I strongly recommend buying this secure and very useful app (much better than other search engine apps, a lot easier to use and much simpler)!

Good but I have a problem
by Cleffa416 on 2021/04/16 03:44
When I try to open the YouTube website I want the website not the app. It automatically takes me to the YouTube app but not Reddit, Twitch, or any other app and this annoys me please fix I will edit if fixed Otherwise a great app, usually pretty fast even with my slow WiFi, works well on cellular, and gives accurate data
LENS
by healer213 on 2021/04/16 02:19
I have a fascination with wildlife and plants where I wonder what the names of everything around me is - grass, flowers, birds (especially), insects, etc. Google Lens has been such a help to satisfy that curiosity. Sometimes I used to go days wondering, searching, scouring manuals and field books and everything trying to figure out what that bird was - but with Google Lens, I just point and click and usually the answer is spot on. I’ve had it mistake ravens for crows on occasion and vice versa, but humans do that too. By far, Lens is the best product I have with Google and honestly, I’d love to have it as a standalone app.
No network connection on google lens

Really sucky and unnecessary
by Yee Yes clan on 2021/04/15 22:40
You could honestly use safari for this and it’d be a lot more easier and more efficient. First of all it never lets you sign into things incognito- it always makes you sign out to use google. Second of all, it always randomly cuts out and says “this webpage is unavailable” when my wifi connection is strong and I don’t have any other tabs open. On safari, none of these things happen, and it’s already installed into your device.
Cant hum or whistle a song in this app.
by Fgmrobbie on 2021/04/15 19:05
False advertising. It states all you have to do is hum or sing or whistle a song and it will find it. And it Literally types random words that sound like my humming and searches those instead of trying to find the song. This was the only reason I downloaded the app. So I’ll delete it now. Thanks.

Excelente aplicación, tiene muchas funcionalidades esta misma app, se puede hacer muchas cosas desde buscar una música que estemos escuchando, para saber quien la canta, tararear una música y la busca, un apartado de noticias, y la integración de google Lens, que nos ayuda hacer muchas cosas en una sola app. Estoy contento con esta aplicación no tengo quejas.
Lens Slide option
by DjCiego on 2021/04/14 22:46

Great App
by Wren496 on 2021/04/14 15:14
Amazing app, I use Google LLC all the time, my only complaint is that whenever you are on a website and then exit to the main page, it keeps unknowingly saving the pages you went to in the recent tab, so you end up with like a thousand pages open at the same time.

Good but so frustrating!
by Scott Mahrle on 2021/04/14 00:33
This is THE most annoying thing about the Google app for iPhone: I open the app and scan the stories. A lot of them look great and I want to read them. I pick one, read it, then swipe to go back to the list. The list is in view just long enough to see the story I want to read next but then the whole list refreshes and all the original stories are replaced. I can’t scroll down to get to the original list—it’s just gone. And whatever is on the new list, I really don’t care because it can’t be as good as the old one. I don’t think the world changed that much in 2 minutes. It feels like Black Mirror 4/4 (Hang the DJ).
Amazing app!
by 🤍24k_vibezzz🤍 on 2021/04/13 23:27
This app has really helped me throughout the years, like searching for pictures, videos, questions, and pictures. Sometimes I think you should add some stuff, but that’s not very important. The new widget helps so much, so I don’t have to keep clicking on the app and clicking the search button. That’s all I needed to say, Thank you!

Google accounts angers me 😤
by zeeeereeerere on 2021/04/02 21:42
Hey google, the live video is probably done by now, but that’s only one of my complaints. While I was watching a YouTuber who playing Roblox I figured out that he was live and I could talk to him on chat but then I needed to sign into YouTube but I forgot my password. So I clicked on forgot password and it told me to put in my phone number so I put in my phone number also I want to say that my email has my first and last name in it. So then it told me to put my first and last name and then when it did it didn’t recognize me so I tried 3 more times and then to “make sure I’m not a robot it told me type the the word I hear or see and then when I did it told me to try again. And after I pressed try again a couple of times it asked to type the word I see again so I typed it but the it tilde me to do it again and again and AGAIN and I raged while telling myself that the live stream was probably over by now and then I got so mad that I went to write a 0 star review and that is why I’m writing this review. Oh, and 1 last thing I have to say is how many times am I going to see “This nickname is taken” when I’m sending this😤.

Removed share button??
by badm0j0 on 2021/04/01 16:10
My typical use of this app was to find new information and then use my preferred browser to keep tabs open in to read later. Removing the share button so that the Googs can better track your every step in app means goodbye to the Google app

What happened to sharing links?

There is no button to share a web page of content with others. Really? Wow. Where’s that functionality Google? Seems to be missing or impossible to find to do so.

incognito bug
by lurkinglinguine on 2021/03/29 21:32
if you exit incognito through the pop up any search you do after will not go through and requires the app to restart, which is annoying and inconvenient especially in an emergency. also, before i turned off cards id frequently get blasted with sensationalist, COVID related news articles (which were often opinion pieces), which was probably the result of me googling my state’s stats every once in a while. definitely not a good feature to have on as a default especially considering the supposed relationship between the pandemic/frequent news exposure and poor mental health. other than that, OK app
Why?
by Sparklegirl34 on 2021/03/29 18:33
I was happy with the way google was! Now my recent searches don’t show up and I used to be able to hit the back button and go back where I was but no! Now I get put back on google search! Very frustrating! Please change it back!
Freezes
by reviewsbyz on 2021/03/29 17:11
This app randomly freezes when your scrolling or typing for up to 15 seconds at a time. This has never happened with any other browser, and has been happening for months and still hasn’t been fixed. I’m also using an iPhone 11 Pro.

by brimorgann on 2021/03/29 02:43
I like it, except for the fact that every once in a while it’ll say I have a notification, but I don’t. It drives me insane. I’ve uninstalled the app, logged off, logged back in, nothing is working. Although it’s an Apple thing, I do wish that when you clicked ‘email’ on some things, it would let you choose what to use instead of the default ‘mail’ app.

I’ve never had a problem with google I would give it 5 stars I love it but 2 days ago When I search with google will look as if it’s searching the line moves across the screen but it stops and never completes the search —- I have safari on my phone to that’s been working with no problems — I checked for updates - connections— I restarted my phone Anyone have another solution?
Too hard to use

Dumbing down Google
by A. Legorreta on 2021/03/27 18:23
I used to love going to the google app to see live football (the one you play with your feet that is) match scores and statistics. Well, now they removed the statistics, so now I need a new app to follow those. I do not understand why google would ever want to take vital sports functionality away from their users, but I guess dumbing down the app is the new normal.
I’m disappointed
by Amy Sweetwater on 2018/11/02 20:47
I know people may not have a problem with this but my google is being annoying right now. So usually when I would search up images, it would show some other images once I click on it. Then I have the option to save and that. Now every single time I click on a picture, it sends me to the website on where it’s from. I don’t want the website, I just wanna see the picture and save it on my camera roll. Now it’s annoying how long it takes me save an image. I’m always seeing the website with its picture. I sometimes like the other photos under that image I search up. I sometimes wanna save them. Now? it takes me at least two-four minutes just to save a picture. I just want my old google back :(
Keeps deleting my tabs
by nickthedestroyer server44 on 2020/12/21 16:30
I 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.
Kinda dumb
by SHREK_the_IV on 2020/11/28 05:47
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
Song hum feature
by Sekandis on 2020/12/21 12:34
Every 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.
Slowly deteriorating
by Nordic_Warrior on 2020/10/10 03:05
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.
Akstyles
by Tfffrdee on 2018/07/25 13:00
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.
New update AWFUL. Google image search useless.
by MeghanSmith917 on 2019/03/29 02:14
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
Losing pages.
by kokokaylee on 2018/03/28 20:19
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 on 2017/11/03 03:41
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 on 2018/05/17 13:57
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.
Just keeps getting worse and worse.
by Nikki.rose0607 on 2020/10/29 19:46
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.
Unsatisfied
by Big hole2011 on 2020/06/13 02:50
Google 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.
Google window on the bottom of screen
by Wanting a fair game on 2017/10/09 23:50
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.
Open Tabs (IPhone XR)
by Atlas_07 on 2020/10/07 19:21
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.
Has been my favorite app but has been crashing for weeks now
by Petisa30 on 2020/05/31 14:04
This 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.
Good App, only one problem
by Blazing Heart on 2017/12/29 22:22
I’ve been getting this pop up lately on Google and Google Chrome that basically says “Congratulations, you have been selected...” and all that. It’s a scam. It’s really consistent and it won’t go away even after clearing my cookies on my phone. It doesn’t happen on Safari and only on Google products on my phone. I tried deleting the app and I even reset my phone and nothing has worked. One way you can improve is to add a feature to Google that stops frequent pop ups like that because this is getting out of hand. That’s the only problem I have with it, everything else is fine. And trust me, it’s not just me who is dealing with all of this. I hope this will be solved soon.
Link to maps usually fails
by Wax and refuel on 2018/06/20 20:31
Generally 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.
Services NOT received (NYT subscription) and no way to dispute
by MoveToAmend on 2020/08/07 12:54
I’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.
Google lens gone??!!
by Punkin' Pooh on 2020/03/07 19:19
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??!!!!
Very disappointed
by Pls lust lemme post things;-; on 2019/06/04 00:34
Okay 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.
Once critical app now unstable under iOS12
by dj jon bates on 2018/12/23 07:46
I 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.
Fix History and Images
by Hello Person03 on 2019/03/23 02:37
The way you delete and look at your search history along with Google images has recently been updated, and it needs to go back. First off, the best feature of your Search History, the ability to delete all of it at once, has been removed and replaced with a day by day basis which is much more difficult to manage. Also, the way you view images when you search has been changed and looks atrocious. It’s clunky, and you can no longer look at images in full screen. It appears to be a terrible attempt at trying to make it look like the desktop image search. Please, please, bring back the old History and Images search, as they are superior and easier to use than what has been added.
Could be an amazing app but...
by MusicalDragon350 on 2018/06/30 18:45
I really like this app, but lately I have been pretty frustrated with it. This wasn’t happening at first, but now when I open the recently visited websites tab after I’ve been using the app to try and navigate to another page it won’t go to the page I want. It is happening fairly often too. It’s not that big of a deal, because I can get there by either typing it into the address bar or closing out of and restarting the app (sometimes this doesn’t work though). But it’s a real pain and can prevent me from setting aside a page or make me lose my progress on something like it just recently did. The mishap is actually what prompted me to write this review. If this problem were to go away the app would get a full 5 stars from me.
Swipe keyboard
by JenningsGraham on 2018/01/13 14:44
The reason I have this app is for the swipe keyboard. This may be the single greatest feature of this app, as my major complaint about iPhones has always been the lack of one. However, since the latest update (11.2.1), there has been quite a lag between me finishing a word and it being entered onto the screen. If I type too fast, words sometimes won't get displayed as they get"typed over." This is extremely frustrating and completely ruins the point of swipe (fast texting), and therefore, the app (in my particular case). It may be an Apple issue, since it has only been happening since the most recent update, but there may be something you guys can do about it. This is a 5 star app, but since the update has been a 2 star app. Please fix this issue. (I have an iPhone SE if that matters at all) Thanks
New Update
by Notmyphone6401 on 2020/10/04 10:02
Update: it seems like it’s gone back to how it was before, much appreciated! There are still a few freezes here and there where I have to restart the app, but nothing worth writing home about. I’m not a fan of the page changes of the most recent update. The Share button is now where the Bookmark button was, which is now where the Refresh button was, which is just gone for some reason. Also they got rid of the back button in the top left that allowed you to go back from the Open-in-new-tabesque feature, which is a major inconvenience to be honest. Overall not happy with it. It just seems like a pointless change that doesn’t make much sense.
What happened
by Tina633 on 2018/06/04 23:21
Google has been the word that changed social media as well as the internet almost as soon as Google hit the internet. We no longer just "browsed" the internet or "searched", we now "googled" and soon just about everyone knew exactly what we were talking about. To google became the very personification of searching for info on the internet. Not sure what happened but I just deleted google as it has gone wonky. At first I thought it was just my iPad but when all the other apps are working as well as they ever did...except for google, it had to be the app, or google. Can't give it five stars as a result. It seems even google has issues. Just doesn't seem as reliable as before.
Doesn’t work half the time
by mandaraffe on 2021/02/26 13:10
I’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
Slow and laggy typing
by Shortish gurl on 2019/10/11 08:12
I 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.
Only works half the time
by monstertruk on 2019/08/05 20:47
I used to really enjoy this app, I’ve been using it for a few years now. Now it seems like ads are the priority, not content. Annoying ads are the first to load, content comes second. What prompted me to write this review was when I was trying to finish an article, the content repeatedly disappeared on the page, the ads stayed in place of course, causing me to constantly refresh. The load/refresh rate is always slow, even on a fast connection. Not to mention I get pop-ups that take over my screen on a regular basis. Is this how Google treats its users? Not to mention the biased search results and cards. I consider myself a moderate, but the mentioned items are always politically skewed. How about some variety Google? Stop treating your users as statistics and data mines. Fix these issues.
Very good app, however only one problem
by Chicken6042 on 2018/02/06 02:03
I use google all the time for researching in school homework and useful website etc. However, sometimes I search a topic up. Let’s say I searched up “How to cook waffles.” Then I wanna search something else up, let’s say I wanna search up “how to cook eggs” now the problem here is when I search a second thing it should say on the search bar that I searched “how to cook eggs” but for some reason instead of saying that. It shows “how to cook waffles.” And if I search something else up that topic will show but “how to cook waffles” will still be there. Now it’s not a big deal but it just gets really annoying when it happens.
Would be a good beta version
by Bill in Akron on 2019/06/23 23:22
It is nice to have the Google app to curate news stories. The most recent version as of June 2019 makes it appear to be easier to tweak seeing news you like and deemphasize stuff not of interest. Unfortunately you still need a separate app to follow the stock market. There are still bugs where the app says it can’t contact Google’s servers to update stories or web pages you’ve been reading suddenly are replaced with a white screen: “the web page is currently unavailable. There are also random times when the main page only displays one or two articles. Instead of adding features, I would rather Google fix the usability issues of previous versions that are still in this version.

Um, photos automatically go to links now?
by Invaderrain on 2018/11/02 17:48
I loved using google but now it’s odd to use because I wanted to look up photo references for a project of mine and now every time I tap on an image it goes to the website and sometimes you have to dig on some of those websites it takes you to just to find the darn image. It’s odd considering the fact that if you use the actual google website on a laptop the images don’t do this but now on phones they decided that it would be a good idea? Not a very good one at all. Also, when you’re trying to look up arguments on both sides and it only shows more left side leaning even though I’ll specifically look up the right view because I need both sides for an actual good political debate for my government class.
Need to be able to turn off articles and trending
by PiratePremtice on 2017/12/17 20:32
I love this app for its core features, including weather, sports, and keeping up with appointments and traffic. I ABSOLUTELY do not want to see 1000 articles about politics on my google app. Yes you can turn a story off one by one, but you need an option to be able to turn off articles altogether. I also abhor you telling me what’s trending when I’m about to search for something. If I’m trying to google a recipe, why should the first thing I see be the latest garbage out of Washington? Seriously who thought this up? Some people might want that but I know how to find the news when I want to see it, and I don’t want to see what the internet is thinking about during EVERY google search. This is not a feature for me and needs to be able to be turned off!
Horrible app update
by Alxndr9 on 2019/05/11 02:14
I have been using this app for as long as I can remember. I don’t know what happened to this app but it used to be amazing. I used this app to replace safari. Until one stupid update. For some reason there is no history anymore in the “recent searches” anymore. Witch is stupid. If I didn’t want to show my history, that’s what incognito is for. I cannot find a way to change it and no one is willing to help because they don’t know what I’m talking about. Another problem if the images tab. You cannot go full screen on photos anymore. Which was very helpful for zooming in. Another problem is the constant freezing and crashing. I have never had a problem with this app. EVER. I physically cannot use it for more then 5 minutes without the app needing to be restarted. Very disappointed. And I used to use google for literally everything.
MAJOR ISSUE NEEDS TO BE FIXED
by CaTa613 on 2018/06/22 00:37
Hey google, Lemme start by saying hat I love your app. It’s efficient, smart, and the best search engine! I just have one major issue that needs to be fixed. When I look up TV shows, what really helps is that I can see the exact time and channel a TV show will be airing on TV. Instead of browsing my TV guide for hours, this is way more useful. However, it appears that you have removed that feature and it has become incredibly frustrating and annoying. That’s one of the main reasons I loved the app, because of the “TV guide.” So can you please bring it back? That will allow me and many others to continue enjoying the app at its fullest. Thank you and please fix this.
Horrible News Feed, Censored Search Results, Many Bugs
by lies2purify on 2019/12/02 10:10
Update: December 2, 2019...it seems the broken Dark Mode is gone. Back to the intense whjrrhhhrh ——————————————— Current problem: Searching images/memes, attempt to save to phone...app freezes on “fetching” overlay, unable to cancel or go back, have to force close app. Other Constant Problems: News Feed: Absolutely horrible and biased. I set it to not show me news about sports or trump...spams me with both. Spams meaningless news about the Kardashian’s and other useless people...I check off ”Don’t show me Stories of/from (TOPIC/SUBJECT)” I refresh the app...here’s more of what I told it not to show. Topics I Would Enjoy: It shows 6 articles in a row of the same subject/title from different sources. Extremely Old News: It shows news articles as highlights or something I may be interested in...from 3 years ago. And it won’t remove the article for weeks or months. I had an article about Slipknot that was two years old that remained on news feed for about three months and would not go away no matter what I did. I’ve reported all these issues through the app, but I assume they are falling on deaf ears. I enjoyed this app for my daily news and always trusted google for searches...many subjects are now extremely censored.
I feel hostage to this latest version
by ANYTHING BUT THIS APP on 2019/05/11 03:46
Somehow, someway, and without my consent,my google search app for iPhone was “upgraded” to the latest “beta” version recently. I noticed the difference immediately on 5/1/19. The entire app displays search results in a chaotic, frenzied, disjointed fashion that is infuriating. Search on Google images?? Ha! It’s enough to cause an instant migraine! What the heck is going on? All Google image search results now display in some bizarre quasi-ad format. Desperate, I literally called Google, which, I didn’t even know was a thing, searching for answers. After 35 minutes of bouncing around I was told I was selected for some beta test version of the new Google search. I was told there is no way to revert back to the prior version. Perfect. Very good Google. I ordered vanilla ice cream Google, but feel free to force-feed me the double chunk peanut butter ice cream that I am highly allergic to. Wow.
Love it but needs a fix.
by blake everette. on 2018/11/02 09:56
I love the google app. In fact I use it more often than I use safari. The app is quick it’s simple and it is very convenient. HOWEVER, upon using it this early morning, I noticed a change. When I go to type in something, for example “cute cats”, it will of course bring up the links and websites with related photos. Although that is helpful, when I move my finger to the right and tap on images the images are brought up in a gallery as usual. The problem lies where when I am scrolling through I tapped a photo to see it closer, which is how I’m used to doing. But instead of that picture popping up, when I tapped it or any image, it just jumped and brought me to the actual website. Super frustrating.
A little buggy
by Oktoberfest914 on 2018/09/16 03:38
I’ve used this app for many years, but over the past year or so it has got buggy. First, switching to incognito can take literally a minute or longer. Why? Same for switching back from incognito. Then when searching it will all of a sudden blank out the bottom half of the page where you can no longer see any search results. You have to research to see all results again. Finally, when opening the app it takes several seconds to begin a search. You’ll begin typing only to discover it wasn’t ready and see just the last few letters of your search result showing in the search box. Weird. Why does it take so long? These issues don’t occurs with the Chrome app, so what’s up Google?
Wonderful app for daily lifestyle
by nammai25 on 2020/06/06 16:07
Google is my friend, and this app makes the power of the famous search engine accessible in just a few taps. Like its desktop counterpart, the Google app makes it easier to find what I really need, without the hassle of using another rival search engine or looking in the newspaper every day. In addition to keeping up with my personal and favorite interests, this app allows me to keep tabs on the news, the current weather, and other things. In short, Google is the only source AND search engine I trust each day to get things done. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed! 🙂
Lost swipe feature, and app closes
by SimplyAskew on 2018/08/24 19:04
Update: I have lessened another star, because lately when I click on a suggested article to open, the google app closes and takes me to my home screen. It also happens when I type in a search. Not all the time, but often enough. I use google all the time, for the most random searches. I enjoy the cards and article suggestions (usually). I loved the ability to swipe to clear after reading or to dismiss. That swiping feature seems to be gone, and I find it irritating I now have to open a menu on a card and choose to hide an article. First world problems, I know, but why would google remove a feature of such convenience? Five stars if it returns (please, google!)
App broken
by skynet131 on 2020/06/22 06:14
After latest update last month, crashes after 30 seconds, every single time. Used to be the go to search and news but it’s so broken right now I’m contemplating just deleting the app on my iPhone. Had to download a new search app. Update. Deleted and downloaded the app. Seems to have fixed the crashing issue. Heard that other apps are also not updating properly and you have to delete and re download the app instead to get. Bit annoying but as long as it works in the end I’ll have to do it. I’ve gotten used to google search same news format so I’m happy to have it back and not crashing every 30s.
News feed is so bad it's surreal
by AdamantVision on 2021/04/09 03:41
For the longest time, I really enjoyed this app as a combination Google search bar and customized news feed. And for a while it was great! It reminded me of Google's discontinued iGoogle homepage. But something significant changed not long ago and the news feed is basically just random trash that I've never told Google I'm interested in. In fact, no matter how many times I tell the app I'm not interested in a topic or person or source or whatever, it just continues to show me more. It's laughable what it decides I'm going to want to see. Disappointing, because it used to be a regular piece of my news perusal. Now it's worthless and no amount of interaction seems to help the "algorithm" figure out what I wanna see. Come on, Google. You own so much data on me already that you should be able to figure me out. Especially with my help.
UwU
by bazookatagz on 2017/10/02 02:48
so i know this app isn't that great for searching, it's slow, eats up data ofc and ultimately is a pale imitation of a browser, but my heart is so warmed by the fact that every night i get a pop up weather notification that tells me the temperature changes that i felt literally COMPELLED to come give a five star rating. i know, it's people like me that make this system a joke, but they've got four stars already. they do impress me, because i'm couch surfing and definitely don't wanna spend a night on the street when it's snowing or raining, or after a 20° drop, and they do provide a pretty direct, accurate service that most other apps can't.
Annoying bug
by Sfet4829 on 2020/02/06 22:10
Google has worked flawless for me in the past with zero issues until about 8 months ago and still til today.. whenever I google something or somewhere I need to go and click the directions button, it USED to seamlessly work and automatically start the directions there for me. But now when I click it, it opens my maps BUT doesn’t add the address or start the directions at all!! I have to manually go back and get the address and type it in. Some may say it’s a minor inconvenience but when you have to go to a weird address or a long address it becomes rather annoying VERY quickly and that just so happens to be the case for me especially in the past 6 months. PLEASE fix it PLEASE!!
Climate denialism
by naturalprocess on 2019/11/16 04:04
I often read articles on climate change because I’m concerned about it. I noticed a few months ago I started getting almost daily climate denial articles on the home page of my google app. Of course these articles always seem to be from spurious sources and thus far I haven’t clicked on them because I don’t want the algorithm feeding me more climate denialism articles. Today, frustrated at yet more climate denialism articles appearing on my home page, I actually googled why that might be happening and found out that google has been funding climate denialism (as per many sources), and other users have actually experienced the same flood of climate denialism articles on their home page. I’m creeped out and concerned enough to write this review and switch to DuckDuckGo for my search needs.
Can’t delete history
by Gobro gopro on 2018/06/04 18:32
You used to be able to easily click a button that said “delete history”. They’ve updated it and you cannot do that anymore. Now you have to individually delete the search history from each previous day, and it doesn’t even work! I deleted my history from today, yesterday, and 2 days ago and then voila the history from today that I just “deleted” is right back in front of me. If googles fixes this or brings it back to the way it was before where it was much better, I’ll change my review Update: way better now that they’ve fixed it. Love the app.
Very user friendly
by Prof_Siracha on 2017/11/03 05:26
I love, love, love the google app! It never leaves my home bar! The app creates a personalized web/news feed that keeps me updated on things that matter most to me. Everything about app, from the layout to the feed keeps me going back here to look things up instead of safari. However, I always find that google is better for searching up quick facts, such as definitions and numbers, rather than opening websites. Other than that, I strongly recommend buying this secure and very useful app (much better than other search engine apps, a lot easier to use and much simpler)!
