The Google Assistant app provides another way to launch the Assistant that’s already available on your phone. It allows you to quickly access your Google Assistant with one tap. You can still access your Assistant by pressing and holding down your home button or by simply saying, "Hey Google."

Remind yourself to send a birthday card, make calls hands free during your commute, and unwind by playing your favorite tunes. You personal Google is here to help. Ask your Google Assistant questions and get things done. Use it anytime, anywhere.

With the Google Assistant, you can:

• Make quick phone calls on the go ("Call Mom")

• Send text messages ("Text Sara I am running late")

• Set reminders ("Remind me to buy a birthday gift for John")

• Take a selfie ("Take a selfie")

• Set calendar events ("Set a calendar event for dinner with Charlie tomorrow from 7-9")

• Play music ("Play jazz music on YouTube")

• Navigate places ("Get me directions home")

• Weather information ("Do I need an umbrella today?")

• Receive updates on the latest news ("Tell me the news")

* Your device must still meet the requirements in order to use the Google Assistant (Google Search v7.11 or higher and minimum memory requirements).

* You do not need this app to use the Google Assistant if you already have the Google Assistant on your device.

    I love Google Assistant. It's so much better than Siri and Alexa. One of the reasons I chose to buy Google Home and Mini over Amazon Echo and Dot. Then I switched from iPhone to Pixel2 XL (after being an iOS user for 10 years) to take full advantage of Google Assistant. Personally I like Google Assistant much better on Pixel2 XL compared to iPhone app. It's not perfect but I think it's the best AI assistant at the moment. Besides several good things about Pixel2 XL, this really makes a huge difference for me when it comes to the iPhone vs Pixel2 XL experience. Full Review

    Is the "Hey Google" going to be available for Chromebooks again by chance?? I love everything about Google. Have about every product and tool available for all of my work, school, and personal aspects of life! I will never go back to anything else. To Google: keep innovating and keep dominating! Let me know if you need some ideas since it is impossible to contact you! Full Review

    It works but I find it slow and cumbersome. Using it with Hue Lights it doesn't understand one of the rooms and doesn't Google search instead. I like that it uses Google search but do not like the fact that the screen has to be active. It does bypass the lock but I cannot just have my phone sitting on the table with the display off. That would make it a little bit better instead of having to wake the phone so to speak. I'm using a Galaxy 7 Full Review

    OK so this works fine on my J7 but for some reason I can't set up the "OK Google" voice recognition. My mic is fine and works very well on the s5 active I just got, but still nothing works. If I find a solution I'll fix it, but right now it'll stay at a 3 star Full Review

    This app is unnecessary. It is supposed to be already in the Google app (they seem to give different answer though). All the same functions can be gotten from Google app, why duplicate? The problem is it is a duplicate but comes up with different answers. As said before it needs to be combined with Google app and share the same data. Full Review

    I have to continuously keep retrain The Voice model so It'll recognize my voice. Then it quits responding to OK Google. It's frustrating, but other than those it seems okay. I have reviewed with three or four times now and my review keeps getting erased somehow Full Review

    Was excited to get my new Pixel 2 and try the Assistant. Was receiving an error "Trouble with microphone, please try again in a few seconds" when I was training my voice for "OK Google". Now the error just even show and yet still is not working. Also squeeze to use the Assistant is not hearing my voice. Only when I open the Assistant app and press the Mic, it hears me Full Review

    The search results are slow in comparison to just using a Google search. I asked what's that band who sounds exactly like Led Zeppelin and it sat confused and clueless. I asked Google, and it immediately knew Greta Van Fleet Full Review

    This used to work really well on my phone but now I can't even access it and it says it's not available for my device. How can that be the case when I regularly used it for months until recently. I loved using this in the mornings because of its 'my day' feature but now it's just useless. Fix it Full Review

    2018.01.27 - 1star: If you ask it to call someone on speaker phone, it will call them and highlight the speaker button but for some reason loud speaker doesn't actually enable. You have to manually tap the button off and then on again and then it works. Defeats the object of hands free! 2018.01.27 - 5star: Now works. 2017.10.13 - 1star: 'OK Google' doesn't work in landscape view. Full Review

    I'd really like to like this app but man, is it horrible at listening! 90% of the time when I speak to it, everything comes out wrong. Such as: when saying "Psalm 91", it inputs "Call Mike" like... What!?! My wife has an iPhone and Siri is soooo much better. Full Review

    This app goes crazy. When I retrain the voice function, the say ok google hangs. It keeps spinning. I tried re installing n rebooting n changing different google account. I tried deleting activities and it still keeps turning. The voice section is not highlighted to delete or retrain voice. This assistant has bugs. Fix if or remove if. It's still not ready for public release. This is my feedback on the problem I have been facing. It's damn frustrating. Full Review

    Just sh*te. I so want this to be good but the recognition is clunky and awful. Using a flagship Samsung phone on super fast wifi. What I find surprising is it gets worse not better. The smartest minds in the planet work in this and it is rubbish. For example no way to turn off the annoying "sure I have added to your shopping list". Highly advanced sh*te. Full Review

    Wish my assistant could do more...for example, when I ask her about something and she reads me a little blurb about it... I wish I could say 'continue reading' or "read web page" I wish she would. There's a lot that I ask that she 'doesnt understand'. Or did I just get the challenged version of My Assistant?

    I love this app but whenever I install it it tells me I have to retune my voice but cancelled my speaker out so I can't record anything and it is totally rubbish when it comes to voice activation for Google Play music. I ask it to play one of my playlists and all it does is open Google Play music but doesn't play anything Full Review

    Well, we're getting there. For all the good, there's a lot of bad stuff here. We need to be able to access the Google suite of apps by starting Duo calls, and sending Allo messages. That would be a good starting point, I could careless if you can compose a SMS message or an email. Full Review

    I guess this is just an icon for the app, but Assistant is a dumber, less useful version of Google Now. Prioritizes BuzzFeed articles over information that's actually useful, like my schedule for the day. Also, update description is a lie and there are no launcher shortcuts. Full Review

    Very useful, I like it. But I cannot turn on ''ok Google" detection on my phone (Samsung s9, Android 8.0), the option is greyed out and says 'this feature is currently unavailable for this language'.I have checked all language settings in my phone and those Gapps I use, they are all English (United States). Hope this can be fixed soon. Thanks Google for bring us this useful assistant. Full Review

    This feels like tech in its infancy that isn't yet ready for prime time. Commands will often be ignored or not understood, then the app will have to be reinitiated. It'll probably be amazing in 5 years, but right now it struggles and is unreliable. Full Review
