Buggy search widget on iOS 14 (fixed)
Updated my review as this issue was fixed even before the review was moderated and published 🙂
TL;DR: voice search requires two clicks and about two seconds of load time before it registers speech. This only occurs on a fresh load (e.g., when not allowing the app to run in the background). Current Behavior: I click the microphone button on the widget. Google opens on its home screen. After about a second the “tap the mic” screen auto opens. The microphone appears to be listening for about a second but doesn’t register any sound. Finally the mic button comes back at which point I can click it and speak. Expected Behavior: I click the microphone button on the widget. Google opens on the microphone screen, registers my speech and executed the search. Note: if I let Google run in the background rather than quitting the app when I’m done it works as expected. However I don’t ever leave apps running. I always quit an app when I’m done using it.

Would give it a 5
Update I’m upping my stars from one to two bc they resolved the issues I was having below. But, only to two because I’m pretty upset about the new “design” or whatever. Changing the location of the home and share buttons at the same time they changed their look was a very bad idea. It’s been weeks and I’m still not used to it. I automatically still try to do it the old way and then after that fails, I have to spend time trying to figure out what the icons mean so I can get where I need to go. Usually, with updates in my iPhone, the changes are so intuitive I don’t even realize that they’ve changed. Not the case here. Very frustrating. Seems like after this long it would have become ingrained, but, nope. Constant crashing or saying the Internet is down when it is not. Love using this app but it seems to be failing more and more. I am past the point of annoyance and to the point of being frustrated enough to come here and rant. I really like having the app separate from safari but I end up having to switch to safari so much that this app has not only become pointless, but adds so much time when all I want is a simple google search.
Keeps deleting my tabs
I had been fine using google mobile for a long time but yesterday it changed the formatting which wasn’t a big deal in itself, but then I went to my tabs to go back to the story’s I had been reading and all my tabs were gone so I thought “ok, I’ll make new ones I remember most of what I had been doing” and I did only to realize that it hadn’t been making new tabs for each site I visited and I had to go and individually make tabs for each site, where as before it did it automatically, but I did all that and had my nice wonderful tabs with all my story’s and sites I read for awhile then logged of and went to bed only to wake up and have all my tabs gone yet again, so I thought maybe there is an auto delete feature and there was so I set it to never remade all my tabs read some more logged of ate breakfast and not 30 minutes later I check goggle and all my tabs are gone again!!! I have no idea why I check all my setting and nothing should be clearing and it hadn’t even been an hour, it’s annoying and pointless.
Google will not stop clearing my tabs no matter what I try.
