Description

Meet your Google Assistant. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help. Find answers and get things done while on-the-go with the help of your Google Assistant. Remind yourself to stop by the store, pull up your travel photos to show a friend, or make a dinner reservation. With the Assistant app, you can: - Make quick phone calls (e.g. "Call Mom.") - Send text messages (e.g. "Text my bestie.") - Email your boss (e.g. "Here is the latest TPS report.") - Set reminders (e.g. "Remind me to buy a birthday gift for Sarah.") - Set calendar events (e.g. "Set a calendar event for dinner with Charlie tomorrow from 7-9.") - Play music (e.g. "Play jazz music on YouTube.") - Navigate places (e.g. "Get me directions home.") - Weather information (e.g. "Do I need an umbrella today?") *Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

    So, what did you update? I wish Apple would deny updated apps like this that says NOTHING about what changed?

    Google assistant is fantastic at answering questions and that’s about it. For home automation is has the serious flaw of not knowing which room it’s in, even when you go through the effort of assigning it to one. If you say “hey google, turn the lights on”, and you are standing in the kitchen talking to a google home that has been assigned to the kitchen you’d expect the kitchen lights to come on. Alas you’d be wrong, for every light in the house will turn on (assuming all lights are connected to some sort of smart hub). By contrast, Alexa nails this correctly. Siri behaves like Google, having no concept of a Siri listener assigned to a location. Beyond this, Google assisting fails at certain tasks if you’re using a G Suite account. For example, it cannot read calendar information from a G Suite account. This is baffling since Alexa can. Google wrote assistant and G Suite... how does Amazon support this and Google doesn’t? It boggles the mind... If google solves some of these extremely frustrating problems, the platform will become a lot more compelling, as the conversational component does feel a lot more natural than any other assistant.
  • Awful Smart Home Integration

    I am extremely frustrated at trying to have my smart devices work correctly with Google Home/Assistant. I have numerous devices all setup with Smartthings, including ceiling fans, lamps, outlets, and light switches that all work with voice commands. I have been using Alexa for a while now and have not had any issues operating my smart devices, but I did purchase 6 Google Home Minis, with the intention of moving form Amazon to Google. Unfortunately, if what I am experiencing can’t be corrected, I will have to abandon Google Home for Smart Home/Smart Devices. What I am experiencing is that Google is grouping all of my “lights” “lamps” “outlets” together. This needs to be optional, or we need the option to be able to select which lights/lamps/outlets we would want in this group. For us, if someone says to turn on the lamp and accidentally forgets to use the name of the lamp, all the lamps turn on. Same with a lights, they all turn on or off. Completely unacceptable. People sleeping are being woken up because of this. We have kids and if they say turn on my lamp instead of the name of the lamp then all the lamps/lights turn on. All of them. With Alexa, if you don't say the name (or group you create) it will let you know more than one device shares that name, which one did you want? You can then clarify. With that, no unwanted lights turn on or off. Is there something I am missing? This can’t be right? If so, Google developers must not utilize smart home devices. Or the only have one of each device.
  • Good, but restricted by apple.

    I love Google assistant. I use it in my home for home control, alarms, questions, etc... However the app on iPhone is restricting. You have to go through steps of opening it like a normal app (I know that's just an Apple thing) but what gets me is reminders and directions. I'll use my Google home to set reminders to do something but my iPhone will not pop up with that reminder at the location or time I chose. Likewise, when I ask for directions it says "I sent them to your phone" but nothing ever come through. I use to be able to get reminders and such on my iPhone but they do not come through anymore like they are supposed to.

    Nice, but I think I'll keep Siri. Google is great on Android, and Siri is great on iPhone! I use Google Assistant on my Android devices.

    Every passing iteration of this app that does not have support for Apple watch annoys me. Google Apple work it out already. You all need each other
