After 4-5yrs usage, apps still keeps lagging every single day!

It took me a while to get used to using this app as I wasn’t initially sure what it’s used for as Chrome was my main browser at the time (4yrs ago). But even now, the constantly lagging app makes it a real chore to use.

It’s gone from my each-morning wake up app to one where I only use it occasionally at night and mainly on weekends.

In fact since 2019, the app will freeze for 5sec every single time I use it! You heard that right:


I don’t know what Google is doing or not doing to fix this. But when a well meaning, and frankly useful app is a constant annoyance, people will stop using it. It’s now 2020.. C’mon Google! I think it isn’t too much to ask for an app to work smoothly at least 90% of the time? FYI, I’m using an iPhone XS.

Can’t get any search results

For a couple of months, I could not search anything using Google app. I have tried deleting and reinstalling the app but it does not work. I have also tried to clear cookies and cache but it still doesn’t work. Whenever I try to search for something, it would always appear “this webpage is not available” and i have ensured that it’s not due to my phone or wifi. Please fix this…I used to use this app a lot as it is convenient and it recommends interesting articles and updates which I enjoy.

Please be consistent

Google please make up your mind and decide on 1 interface for showing all my open tabs. It kept switching between sliding view and icon view. Personally i prefer the icon view where i can also decide if i want my tabs to be removed after a certain time.

Please just stick to one and leave it. Thank you very much.
