We’ve made the Assistant even more useful. See your calendar events, your flight information, stock prices, and more!


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.

Worse than Siri
Snaresman on 7/18/2018
Siri is bad, Google Assistant is worse. Can't find anything. All it to make a song and it doesn't hear anything. Better off without either of them.
Continued conversation
Oughtabe on 7/18/2018
Still unable to do continued conversation ...I have tried everything...No answers from help Dept..🤨
Just a broken app
Ottai on 7/18/2018
I have tried to use and enjoy this app, but it is the worst that I think Google has released for iOS. I have tried to use the Routines feature, but I ALWAYS get the message “Something went wrong.” For whatever reason, the Broadcast feature does not work for me in Routines. Now since the latest update, the app freezes constantly. I cannot even modify preconfigured Routines without the app freezing then crashing on me. Using this app is pure terribleness.
Way better than Siri
rajanuj on 7/17/2018
I just wish Apple would let Google Assistant be my default assistant!
I don’t like siri anymore
Doge rainbows on 7/16/2018
When my younger friend was playing with siri it kept on swearing this app can recognize your voice wayyyyyyyyyy better
6/16/18 please fix
DaAweSumr on 7/16/2018
It’s been there days since I opened up Goggle assistant. It would just open and freeze. I could not type or anything. Please fix.
This passed Quality Control?
Sbmluver on 7/13/2018
I can’t see the words on the screen when edit a reminder. I also can’t see the entire reminder in the reminders list. The list view is limited to about 5 words- with no way to expand it. It’s astonishing that that these issues have been present for months. Google has the most fantastic speech-to-text engine and some of Assistant’s features are incredible. It is dumbfounding that I encounter a basic issue- like not being able to see the text field and keyboard at the same time. • iPhone 6S iOS 10.0-11.4
Wally man.8
strong and powerful on 7/8/2018
Love the app but I have something to say to Wallyman.8. First of all the olympics is not fair, they put down men and women of color because of their culture, what they look like, and how they talk or act. Norway only has gold medals because of the rich background the country possesses and the mostly white population. Second of all google is not denying the right to Asian or white men, they simply look for diversity, which America lacks of! Check your privilege.
Puts Siri to shame
Boaster on 7/5/2018
This app can do much more than Siri, but more importantly, it remembers context AND still works in a noisy environment where Siri often fails. For example, I can ask both Siri and Google “Who is Person X” and both will tell me. Then I can say “How old is he?” Siri has no idea what I’m talking about but Google remembers the context and gives me person X’s age.
Careful of the loops!
Ageekymom2 on 7/4/2018
I played a trivia game (Talk Like a Chef) and got into a loop that required me to reinstall the app. Be warned!
What's wrong with the latest version?
lymanc on 7/4/2018
It's stuck on the loading, and the loading wheel becomes a dot. Nothing is trappable. Terrible bug.
Andy Koval on 7/3/2018
I have to pass captchas on your own app over and over again? Really?
Voice feedback not great.
adamczepeda on 7/1/2018
Clean interface and easy to use, however the supplied results from voice seem to be pretty far off and irrelevant to my questioning in most cases. I’ve made sure to articulate very clearly and have tried multiple times on some pretty general questions - nothing that would be intentionally trying to trick the feedback. Same issue trying to text by voice. Articulation is clear but the output is usually off. It becomes easier to text and search manually than use the voice feature. I’ve deleted the app as a result.
Useful, but...
hybridfact on 7/1/2018
Useful, but the app is slow to launch. It would be even better if the app was ready to listen quicker.
Doc Chery on 6/30/2018
I was far from impressed. Just another tool to try to upsell 🙄
Waste of time
svhzr on 6/29/2018
This thing couldn’t even find my location. It’s weather, time etc is for a place 3000 miles away making it totally useless. No easy way to change things. One star
Please fix lag in google assistant on iPod touch 5
RyosukeKudosachi on 6/27/2018
It's been several months since you haven't fixed the unresponsiveness on iPod touch five and the first iPad mini what's taking you so long to fix Google assistant? I am actually not impressed with my experience the app itself is barely functional i'm pretty sure you can make it run smoothly on iPod touch five and the first iPad mini just like Google app I have no problem using that app because it actually runs somewhat smoothly but it is very functional that's how it should be until then I will not be using Google assistant until you fix the functionality on iPod touch five and the first iPad mini so for now you only get one star but I promise I will change my star rating all the way up to five stars so please hurry up and fix Google assistant functionality😑👎
Needs Improvement!!!
Dead Marshal on 6/26/2018
The assistant has became worse. It can’t recognise a lot of commands since the last update. Before the update, it would sing songs if asked to. But now it doesn’t even understand what I am asking for!!! Hope you’ll bring improvements on the next update!!!
Best Assistant Available
Mfdbffj on 6/22/2018
Compared to Siri, Alexa, and Cortana, Google Assistant is by the far the best. Only issue is the confusing overlap in functionality this app has with Google Home and the Google App.
Meghana1700 on 6/18/2018
It has everything from games to work. Google assistant can do legit anything u ask her/him and definitely eat more than Siri. Goggle Assistant actually has an answer for anything u say. It’s the most entertaining and helpful app ever. Too lazy to get up and turn on the AC? Google assistant has it under control. Need a new background of a waterfall? Google Assistant will load you up. Bored? Google Assistant got a bunch of games and riddles up her/his sleeve for you to enjoy. Every single person in the world needs this app. I highly recommend it more than anything!
Highly unreliable
CGalyon on 6/17/2018
I can use a command one day and attempt to use the exact same command the next day and it doesn't work correctly. I constantly run into this when using Assistant to activate a playlist on Google Play Music. It's maddening.
App looks different than in the store
sprckhx on 6/17/2018
Soooo... For some reason, the app I downloaded looks different than the one show on the pic - it doesn’t have the drawer in the top corner... Hence, I am not really able to control my Google Home at all... Have been back and forth with Support team multiple times but they are a) unreliable, b) unable to help. extremely upset about this!
Kñowledge on 6/10/2018
It won’t answer you unless you open the app first. If my phone is on the table and I’m in the next room and say hey Siri at least the crappy Siri will answer. I don’t have time to open a app that has voice commands just to ask for something it’s a waste of space on my phone.
How to ask a question. I can’t rate u yet
ilovemycat3 on 6/10/2018
So far you haven’t helped me with anything I ask. How can I ask a question that you will answer. I’m sure it’s me and not you
Come on Google. Still no 3D Touch option for voice search on launch...?
rbow-Z28 on 6/9/2018
The only reason I use Cortana over Google Assistant (and even Siri): Google Assistant still doesn't have the option to enable voice search/microphone on launch. I know you can say "Okay Google" but that's just an uncessaey step in my opinion. It's probably because Google hates Apple. Really though this lacked feature needs to change. The lack of a quick Google voice search upon laughing the application or a quick 3D Touch limits it's potential and functional abilities. Atleast Cortana can be launched with voice search/command right away. Although they're smarter than Siri, saying "Hey Cortana" or "OK Google" gets old. Sometimes when I’m in a hurry it's nice to quickly launch Siri or Cortana and get an response right away. I don't always want to Type to Assistant... (And correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure Google Assistang once offered than slowly removed the voice search as a 3D Touch Option for Google Assistant, shortly after the application became available.)
Yo Google
Is this importent on 6/9/2018
Yo Google
Hey Siri, open Google Assistant
Isak25 on 6/7/2018
I use the Google Assistant on my phone, watch, and speakers. I wish you could do things like texting without touching the screen (although this is limited by Apple).
What happened to shortcuts?
all nicknames taken2 on 6/7/2018
Love the app hands down, but the shortcuts option seems to be missing.
Better than Siri
The 12th Reviewer on 6/5/2018
The Google Assistant is MUCH better than Siri, I just wish Apple would allow the Google Assistant to be the default Assistant rather than Siri. I also know that developing the app for the iPhone is probably not the priority at Google, but I wish that they’d keep the iPhone app updated more closely with the Android version. There are lots of small bugs and design issues through the iPhone app.
Nothing Works Anymore :-(
CatsnCoffee on 6/5/2018
I loved this app when it first came out and I could take a selfie with the app running in the background… For whatever reason that feature no longer works which makes this pretty useless compared to Siri... I wish somebody could tell me otherwise and how to fix this problem...
Wait for Vietnamese support
IMBA2968 on 6/4/2018
Way better than Siri
chrisking58 on 6/4/2018
The ONLY reason I didn’t give 5 stars is that it can’t yet control some iPhone functions. Far superior in every other way, Apple would be smart to allow Assistant complete control of phone functions. It’s actually so far superior, I’m actually considering buying a Pixel 2, just to have the complete Assistant functionality.
Read girl
Ordiwaya full on 6/2/2018
There is times my Google does not understand me and you need to fix the alarms, I have overslept a few times because of this.😠 for example whenever I say hey Google or OK Google set alarm for 6:45 AM it will say that the alarm is set. but then it will say” sorry” there is a glitch and the alarm is not set. you need to make it so you can choose the sound for the alarms and timers.☹️ also sometimes didn’t understand me whenever I say to stream or play a radio station such as Z 88.3 on tune in or K love on iHeartRadio.
Assistant crushes Siri- it’s so much smarter
hermesfeet on 5/30/2018
Assistant is far ahead of Siri and Alexa- I use all 3 as a consumer and developer and the AI here is years ahead. Hoping the two worse ones come back to give some competition.
Google Assistant
Victor JF on 5/29/2018
Perfecto pero solo una cosa: me gustaría que se activara sin tener que tocar el micrófono, solo al llamarlo e incluso, con el teléfono sin conectar (como Siri), es decir, que funcione como la bocina.
Can not set alarm
be1018 on 5/28/2018
I find it frustrating that an assistant app can NOT set an alarm
Why not support Chinese?!
阿微的号 on 5/27/2018
It’s important to support Chinese!
Fallo en la aplicación
carreta21 on 5/27/2018
Con esta última actualización me esta fallando la aplicación de Google Assistant. Porfavor mande otra actualización para que se arregle ese fallo
Add Persian
farhanzb on 5/26/2018
Support Persian language
blueshinystar on 5/26/2018
When will have the Chinese vision?
It's better than siri
SOUGATA SAIFUL on 5/25/2018
I think Siri is the best Assistant but now I can see Google Assistant better than siri. I find a right assistant I think .
Not even close to Siri
tacoburn70 on 5/24/2018
I don’t see how people think this is better than Siri. it won’t dial calls or send messages to half my contacts, it doesn’t launch apps like Siri does, I don’t know what planet you’re from saying this is better than Siri. it doesn’t have dictation integration like Siri does. really you guys? are you sure you’re not getting Siri mixed up with talk back or android? haha!! but seriously, it’s a good beta app for testing, where is nowhere near a Siri replacement
Why can’t Apple just buy google assistant?😂
Bandwagon231 on 5/22/2018
I think that pretty much says it all!
LaDolce on 5/22/2018
Google kept registering her talking as if I was talking makes no sense
Keeps crashing
skitty0o0 on 5/21/2018
A few bugs; fix them
Support iOS 9 please!
jamesaddiction on 5/20/2018
We need you extend support to iOS 9 please!
Far superior to any other assistant!
Mom2HnH on 5/19/2018
I had been using Siri and got to experience an Amazon Echo at a friend’s house. But I must say, ever since I got my Google Home, I think this beats out everything else! It’s way more intelligent and sounds very realistic. If I could replace Siri on my iPhone with the Google Assistant, I most definitely would! 👍
Would be really nice on Apple Watch.
landokids5 on 5/17/2018
Would be really nice on Apple Watch.
Ming rui Wang on 5/17/2018

wyneclrk on 5/16/2018
Am I missing something or is the app not able to read all of my calendars within Google Calendar?
