- Email your boss (e.g. "Here is the latest TPS report.")
- Set reminders (e.g. "Remind me to buy a birthday gift for Sarah.")

Better than Siri

The Hankian

I find the Google Assistant to be way better that Apple’s native solution that is Siri. I think it has more to do with how the information is packaged. Most of the time, the Assistant gives me something from the web, á la Siri, but instead of giving me the oft-repeated and annoying line “Here’s what I found on the web for...”, the Assistant gives me the result in a similar manner to the Top Stories feature on Google Search. I also use the 3rd-party integration much more than I ever have with Siri.
My biggest problem with the Assistant is not exclusive to Google’s AI, (I have this complaint about Siri and Amazon’s Alexa as well) but nevertheless, there’s a discoverablity problem. As the Assistant is in an uncanny valley of intelligence, I’m not entirely sure of everything I can do at any given time. I think Google is at a good place of addressing this problem.

Way better than siri

Iyad Laphir

I recently needed to do some projects and used Siri it get information hands free, however I found out that it is very limited and only reads info from Wikipedia, I can barely even show some pics! Then I got this app, and I'm impressed by Google answer to siri.
The "ok, Google" feature works 99% of the time for my horrible accent and the voice is very cheerful and fluent. Its ironic that a 3rd party application does better than what Siri can do. Information is usually on pint and the new connecting with Chromecast is very useful. This app a nessacity is all iphones and should be kapt in the iPhone dock.
Theres is literally nothing wrong with this pp for me other than the fact that accessing it is harder than Siri. This app and gboard is perfect t combination for your iphone.

Needs to be iPad Native


Google Assistant is really nice to have on my iPhone and iPad. It does some things better than Siri, some things worse... mainly it’s more fun but less useful than Siri, but that’s mainly due to lack of system integration.

My main complaint with this app is that it doesn’t run native on iPad. Seriously, at this point what excuse does an app have not to run native on iPad?? Apple has made it extremely easy to scale apps up for the bigger screen and higher resolution, and for an app with as simple of an interface as Google Assistant it would be rather easy to make it run beautifully at fullscreen on iPad using UIKit and AutoLayout. They could also optimize it for SplitView rather easily as well, which would be extremely helpful when multitasking. I hope they get on that, because it would make this app so much better!
