New Search WindowThe new window that pops up when you select a search result is ridiculous. It takes up more screen space and you are unable to select the url bar to search there like you could before. Instead, now you must return to the google search results page and type your query there instead. The page url still shows at the top of your screen, and selecting it copies the link instead of allowing you to modify it. This change significantly slows down search time and tab browsing time. Additionally, the back arrow from the top is now gone, leaving you with the back and forward arrows at the bottom, which do not have the same affect as the large back arrow that used to be present.
I like this app, I have never had much problems with it, if this change does not become optional or removed I will most likely be removing this app and looking for an alternative, as this change seriously diminishes the app’s usability..Version: 222.1

Only one complaintGoogle Maps as an application is great for travel and directions over all. It is accurately interconnected to transit systems in cities I travel to. Easy interface for looking at reviews and information of destination’s.
Now the only thing I have to complain about is when you type in your destination for directions is the map auto-fixes to compass 🧭 north, instead of the direction you are facing. For example if I am headed west and fading south the map appears “upside down”. I understand if you use the “live navigation” feature the map corrects itself and relays the information based on current facing direction. As one who loves to walk and wants to save battery life on my mobile device, it would be great if the default for “get directions” without navigation feature would load to the direction you are facing so you don’t have to toggle the map when looking at directions..Version: 268.0
I have loved this appI’ve been using the google app for a long time for keeping up with news cause it’s easy to navigate but I find as of recent I encounter more and more issues when it comes to reading articles as they keep glitching out and bouncing around the screen because ads don’t load in properly, or I will be bombarded with ads that make it near impossible to read the actual article as there’s no less than 5 pop ups at any given time and the option to close them is either nonexistent or so small you keep clicking the ad, pair that with the aforementioned ads not loading in properly and so many articles become unreadable either half the screen is taken over by ads or it keeps jumping around you can’t keep your place, often both and that’s assuming I’m not stuck in a loop of the article refusing to open or if it does load at all without crashing.
But the funny thing is if I open the articles in my browser I don’t have these issues, so I’m beginning to think it’s a you problem..Version: 265.0
New VolvoWe went to the dealer on Labor Day 2023 to test drive the electric Volvo at the Scottsdale dealer . We was greeted by a very professional sales person who assisted us right away. After driving the car I was in love with it, the style, the performance, and the overall appearance. So me and my husband sat down with the salesman, Issac Favela. We purchased a 2023 electric Volvo. Issac was knowledgeable, professional, and very informative about the car. We also have a great experience with the finance department. Once we finish financing, they had prepared the car to leave the lot and go home with me. The sales consultant went over all the operations of the car and he provided his business card for any additional questions once I left the lot. The entire experiences was a bit long but very thorough and complete.
I would recommend this dealer to any, and everyone who wants a good experiences and a great car. Romanie and Samuel.Version: 280
Suggested/trending searchesThankful the tab behavior was reverted and now when I search it actually fully goes to the page I want, and I can edit the search from there. Unfortunately, I REALLY dislike the suggested/trending search boxes that are now showing up as suggestions. For a long time I have had a preference set to NOT show me trending searches and this new feature seems to be basically the same thing, so I would expect Google to respect my preference and not show those. (I did not see any new preference that I could use to do this.)
I try to search with purpose and I do not appreciate distractions and apps trying to tell me what I should be interested in because it’s trending or new. Attention is a limited resource and those features are a way to steal attention. I typically prefer Google because it is minimalist and doesn’t distract but this is a subtle way to distract and I would like to turn it off asap. Either respect the existing preference or add a new one so I can turn this thing off..Version: 223.0
Usually interesting reading butA huge bug is that when I click on that I’m not interested in a topic, I get a pop up message that Google gets it and won’t show me any more articles about that topic. But I keep seeing articles!!!! Sometimes I even see more of them. Two current examples are Princess Charlene of Monaco and Situation Puzzles. I clicked on a few of each which was enough so I clicked on that I wasn’t interested. The articles kept showing up, sometimes multiple articles every time I opened Google. Just now I opened the app and, out of 37 articles, 5 were about Charlene!! I keep saying I’m not interested but I keep seeing these articles. Enough already!!! Another annoying bug is that, when Google is refreshing the articles, if you’re reading one, it freezes and you have to exit Google, reopen it and go to Tabs to find and continue reading the article..Version: 186.0
Hasn’t Yet Earned 5 StarsAt one time in the past, when I typed in my search argument, if there was a misspelling, Google would offer up the correct spelling, eliminating the need for me to correct it. In some cases, where participles or familiar words were involved, Google will reconstruct my argument with the correct grammar.
I would sure enjoy those days again. Even now, when I’m typing this review, all of my misspellings are corrected. Why can’t Google offer that option when I’m typing in my search parameters? Google once did have that option, then took it away.
One other annoying thing about Google: whenever I’m searching for a report or article, Google displays first the results it wants me to see, often biased, forcing me to scroll several pages until I find what I’m looking for. This is a nasty habit and one which stirs up conversations in Congressional circles about “reforming” Google.
Google is an important research tool, very important, and Google employees shouldn’t be allowed free license to transform such an important research tool into a one-sided echo chamber for specific ideologically-oriented groups. I’d rather see Google as completely neutral in that regards.
Making it neutral, without certain biases being introduced, goes a long way to earning that fifth star. Thank you..Version: 258.1
Wow- A great dealership and a perfect sales woman for purchase of 2024 greyhawk 30ZAn experience we will always remember, worth 10 stars working with Amy DeCamp the most knowledgeable of all aspects inside and out. I cannot thank her enough for her patience with us as we worked through years of finding the right time for us financially as well as the right product to meet our needs. My husband was beyond impressed with her knowledge of the Rv industry as well as her orientation for us. The entire staff was ready to respond to our every need and made sure that it had been reviewed 100% to perfection. We have found nothing in our two weeks of ownership that has been of concern. We have found a new family with them and encourage everyone to give them an opportunity, (near or far) to show what they are capable of doing for you. Dave and Kathy mathews.Version: 275.0
Lotte Hotel New YorkMy husband and I moved my son from Texas to New York for college. I booked a room at Lotte Hotel but the parking garage would not accommodate my husbands truck which is 7 ft. 7 inches. After driving around for 2 hours to find a parking garage we were faced with having to leave Manhattan due to no parking. I actually canceled my hotel reservation and was upset that I would not be able to spend the 2 days with my son that were planned. When carrying luggage back to the truck the doorman George noticed our dilemma and went out of his way to find an open parking lot that could accommodate our vehicle. I was so grateful for his assistance. I tried to tip him for going above and beyond to help us but he would not accept the tip. He is one of a kind and should be recognized for his kind actions. He even stopped traffic to help me cross the street. What a gem!.Version: 279.1
TwacyRadIn response to the user “TwacyRad” your rant was absolutely ridiculous and a waste of everyone reading its precious energy. Not to mention I just lost at least 6-7 brain cells just fighting the extreme urge to use googles app/image search to search your screen tag and well that’s another story!
Anyways!! Nobody really cares about your sensitivity to light or the painstakingly long rant about you and your crap. I too now am sensitive to light,sound,and movement and probably have some anger issues that need valium due to your boring long rant about you and nothing about the app itself?!
PLEASE JUST PUT THE MAC,iPhone,and,IPad down! Clearly your “SENSITIVITY” to light has burned the retinas connecting to your brain and you too seem to be down a few brain cells?! Yes you are the minority at least that much you can “SEE” in the dark or the light mkay?

It would be my favorite search engine BUT…I’ll be honest, a world without Google is a world in which I don’t want to exist. I mean, you can find anything, and I mean ANYTHING on Google. It couldn’t get any more awesome than that, right? Well… It could. The fact that the Apple mobile version of Google doesn’t allow one the capability to download PDF’s/EPUB’s in order to view them, makes Google a little bit lame. If I had a dollar for every time I had to switch to Safari (🤢) & look up the same exact thing just so I could view a PDF, I’d probably be able to buy Google right now. (Maybe an exaggeration, but it’s occurred so much so that I felt very compelled to write this review) I personally rate it an overall 4.3 stars, as it has such potential to be the greatest creation since sliced bread. If only I could view my PDF’s….Version: 241.0
IOS Widget IssueLove the iOS widget for the Lock Screen. However, when I select the widget, the app opens and the microphone screen comes up and google is listening. That’s perfect. When I ask a question, google dictates the words I said perfectly but the response is “something went wrong. Please try again”. The words I said are still listed in the search area so I just have to hit search and it works, but it should just give me the answer without the “something went wrong” response. It seems this only happens when the google app is not already open. If the app is open, the widget and app work perfectly.
UPDATE: The update I received today fixed this issue. Yay!! I’m so happy! Now I can ask Google something from my iOS lockscreen instead of using Siri.Version: 248.0
همیشه بهترین گزینه meaning: Always the best optionGoogle never disappointed me. And this app likes the other Google apps is on top my list.
How is it going to be bad
When you look at the updates’ vesion history you can see most of the updated are done based on the users reported problems
So, when it respects the users’opinions and take them seriously and consider updating the app according to what they reports, it clarifies that Google cares for what we need
Since th time I saw and used Google search engine for the first time (when it was born and surpassed other search engines of the time and redifined the meaning of “searching” and “search engine”) I could never get back to any other software or application. Google is and will be my “default”.Version: 285.1
New UI is Worse after latest updateI have always been a avid google user, and always preferred the google app over safari.
however, this latest update has made me have an extreme uptick in my use of Safari.
the new way to view webpages is not user friendly, and glitches very often. i often find myself losing the page i was on, or getting kicked out randomly. also, it is near impossible to begin a new tab without over riding an existing one. multiple times i am trying to input information from one site into another, and it end up closing one when i try and switch to the other. it’s infuriating.
these bugs need to be fixed quickly, or i may end up making the full time switch to Safari as my go to app..Version: 235.0
Not a robot page??? I’ve pressed no but it doesn’t go awayIf I use the same browser after 3-6 searches it won’t load and takes me to a page that asks if you are a robot when you press no it doesn’t go back to the browser it just takes me to another are you a robot page and I have to close the app out open a new tab and click the im not a robot button at least 3 times before I can use the browser again. I can understand if it took you to the robot page then once you click your not a robot it should take you back to the original page but it doesn’t do that it makes you do all this work to make the page go away and makes the experience annoying I don’t want to be directed to that page all the time juts to do the same stuff to make it go away just for it to appear again please fix it somehow.Version: 261.0
Linda Gordon and friends!We love this quaint restaurant whether we eat outside or dine indoors.
The staff is always friendly and upbeat and happy to see you! The Food is prepared fresh and served beautifully! If we don’t eat there at least two times a summer our summer is not complete! It’s not often a quaint restaurant like this takes reservations! We enjoy how the manager makes this possible! And it is a joy just to watch Kevin , the table busser, fix up the immaculate table decorations and clean linens and keep your class filled with beverage before you even miss a drop!
Of course is very popular during the Tulip Festival so I urge you to go another time when it is not quite so busy! That way you can enjoy the lovely gardens that you see as well as the food and surroundings!.Version: 233.0
It is a good, but there is some issuesThere is many google glitch that I constantly keep on seeing, like google being SUPER slow and keeps on acting like we do not have internet, and it is Xfinity, and I say Xfinity is really good internet in my book. And this REAL annoying glitch it is what I call the no pictures glitch because when you take photos IT ALWAYS SAYS “could not save image” and you know what I have to do to fix that, DELETE GOOGLE, yeah I would say that is a real annoying glitch, but I don’t know what causes this may cause my phone is outdated, because it is a iPhone 6 or but please google fix this glitch please, because I do not want to constantly DELETE GOOGLE, and when I mean constantly I mean every night, if you where me, you would probably feel the same as me, annoyed, the glitch is getting on my nerves and I hope it will be fixed..Version: 190

Google Sign-In Broken In AppI'm used to using texted codes for 2FA. Fortunately, Google still lets me do that. The idea of depending on some password manager that contains a key that I can't access if something goes wrong doesn't appeal to me. This time, though, I decided to try a different option that Google provides, which is to open the Google App and verify my identity. So, I downloaded the app and gave it a go. What happened, though, was that the text in the screen was highly zoomed, and locked in place, making it impossible to scroll, in any direction, to wherever it was on the screen that I was supposed to do the next thing. Until that bug gets fixed, obviously, the Google App two-step login option is dead.
As for the app itself, it seems to be a decent search engine with some additional features..Version: 203.0
Slowly deterioratingGoogle was great, but the issue is that minor inconveniences such as taking Google Search off iMessage is really annoying. From there I could do a quick search or a location to send much quicker via text. Not anymore! Another thing, the app gets slower and more cluttered with each update. I do not use Safari as much due to the fact that it feels “heavier” and more cluttered, but now I’m seeing pointless news articles that are absolutely irrelevant to me as an individual. All of the data mining and theft your company does, and you can’t even match my interests? Even if you could match my interests, you wouldn’t be able to do it because you are Google. Furthermore the articles are pointless anyways because of the News app and third party apps that I can download. Slowly but surely, Google is turning into a lesser search engine like Yahoo or Bing..Version: 128.0
