The best of Google in one app. Say “Ok Google” and find everything from nearby restaurants to the calories in cheesecake. Google also shows you the info you need before you ask, like updates on your favorite teams and traffic alerts.
Talk instead of type:
• Say “Ok Google” then ask a question*
• Google will speak the answer aloud
Ask Google to help you do things:
• “What are good restaurants nearby?”
• “Where is my package?”
Personalize your feed and get notifications:
• Start your morning with weather, news & traffic
• Get updates on sports, movies & events

I have been patient, I have been loyal. Apple, I'm talking to you. No longer will I speak into my phone looking like a complete lunatic, mutter the same phrases 10 times over into my hand in attempts to be "safer by using voice control" with your devices. No more, would I ever attempt to use Siri as it's become anything but convenient, which for me, would be the only reason.
That is until I could ask Siri ,"Open Google app" which is now the only words she hears.
Google takes the idea of Siri, the cleverness of Alexa and the broad range of connectivity that only someone like google could potentially reach to. With it comes a sleek, very fast, "assistant" and for lack of a better term, I've fallen in love.
I was never one to think it would be all that helpful, but once you get started, and it starts to really learn the way you operate, it becomes convenient more and more, finding or teaching you things otherwise would have taken a little to a lot longer to find.
In this day and age where the time is 'Now!' Google responds with a solid and resolute, "here."
Fast map routing, great suggestions, and even better security with what has become my assistant inside one another.
I loved you apple, but siri in comparison, has shown me the true lack of growth from them recently and when i think hard bout what I could no longer "do or live without," I can't mutter anything besides google, and I'm not scared to say that.
Hiccups In Dictation But Still Five Stars
This is a terrific app which I recommend without reservation. Google's dictation is still worse than Apple's own service but is getting better. The big problem with it is that it will cut you off in the middle of your query, or remain listening long after you are done speaking. The workaround is simple enough: tap the query field once to bring up the keyboard and use Apple Dictation for your query.
Despite this minor issue, this is still an must-have app that deserves to be on the front page of your mobile device.
I really love this app I use it all the time. The only issue I have is that since I upgraded to iPhone 7 I can't utilize the cards in the app. I tried reinstalling the app to no avail, changed settings nothing, reset my phone nothing. Google if you read this please help or fix in future updates
