I LOVE THIS APP!!! Even though you can’t necessarily play a super fun and popular game on it, it’s SO HELPFUL with practically EVERYTHING!!! Time and time again, I’ll need a definition for a specific word and I can always rely on Google to give me the right and accurate definition!! It’s also SO MUCH FASTER than using Safari and typing in: Google. Then it takes about FIVE HOURS for it to load and FINALLY Google comes up! But by then, you’ve already found a definition for your word and the whole thing wasn’t even worth it. Anyway, in my opinion I think that Google is more original than Chrome. I honestly don’t get the difference between Google and Chrome. I’m not trying to be a judge over anything because it wouldn’t be in my place to do that, but I think Google and Chrome are basically the exact same thing. 😊😊😊😊 I have had both apps on my device for a long time now, and I haven’t really realized any recognizable or distinct differences between the two apps. It would be nice if there could be, so you would definitely be able to tell the difference between Google and Chrome but I still LOVE Google and it remains helpful to me!
(BY THE WAY, I RATE APPS ON HOW MANY PROBLEMS I’VE HAD WITH THE APP. I RATED THIS APP 5/5 ⭐️ BECAUSE I DIDN’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT)
The writers of Google have done an incredible job producing a valuable resource. I use it daily to search scientific and medical research before I have time for search the professional literature and find a new restaurant and get an address and phone number for someone. Those are just a few of the many ways Google makes my life easier. For the people who complain about Google, I say, live without for a day or a week or two and see if your complaint is valid.
I do have a concern but it is not limited to Google. After Facebook's laissez faire toward user's privacy information, I have become more concerned about how social media and technology companies, in general, are collecting and selling our information. This is no different from companies that have collected personal information from warranty cards, requests for information etc . Of course, technology makes the use of information easier and more valuable. We need to be careful about how and when give our information to other people.
Bad form giving me spoilers without a warning
I have used the google app for a long time. One of the main reason i use it these days is for the news stories it offers in an easy to read format that are relevant to me and my interests. Recently I noticed the news stories popping up being repetitive, unwanted, and often times inappropriate. I used to be able to swipe to get rid of news stories and I can no longer do that. As silly as it seems, that is extremely annoying. The stories tend to revolve around a topic I may have looked up once and not something I would like to be updated on constantly. Often I’ll read a story only to find it persisting in the feed. I’ll say that I’m not interested in that type of news story only to find it again only labeled under a different “subject”. Most recently it offered a story that offered spoilers on a show I’ve been following. What algorithms google uses to show my stories needs to change. I am close to deleting the app just because of frivolous reasons.
Update: I deleted the app because I hid the SAME STORY 5 times and it kept popping up. I was tired of google forcing me to read what they thought was important rather than what was truly interesting to me.
