What went wrong.
I had an iPhone 6s and I used this app with my fossil watch and it worked great. I got my text messages and phones calls and reminders and all. But then something went wrong with this app. I did an update and then it stopped working. I was no longer getting my text messages. Everything else was working fine. So I removed the app and then downloaded it again hoping it would work and it did not not. So then I thought maybe it was my phone because it was an older iPhone and the app was updated maybe there were some changes and my phone just was not getting it due to being old. So I upgraded my I phone to an iPhone XS Max hoping it would work. Excited to get the app downloaded and updated and set up my watch to my new phone and nothing. Still no text messages. I was very disappointed. I just don’t understand what went wrong if it was working fine before. Please go back and check to see what you did a few updates ago that changed to not receiving text messages any more. With every update I have hope that I will get my text messages again and still nothing no text messages coming in. That is the only thing that is missing from this app update and I don’t know why or what happened to stop receiving text messages. Please bring back the text messages so I can use this app again with my I phone.
Does NOT work well with Xbox One X
I downloaded this app because it advertised that you could connect to an Xbox console and use voice commands through your phone to do everything from turning it on to open apps for you. First problem I had is that it doesn’t open the proper game you ask for, for example : “Xbox open Call of Duty Modern Warfare” rather than trying to open the new 2019 Modern Warfare it tries to open the original game Call of Duty 4 for Xbox 360. Second problem I had was even following all of the instructions of putting instant on so you can turn on or off the console from the app it does not work at all. Third problem I had was that it takes anywhere from 5 seconds to 5 minutes for the console and the app to communicate, for example: “Xbox open Netflix” nothing happens for 5 minutes and after you have already opened the app it causes the entire app to restart and kicks you out of whatever you were doing. Overall one of my least favorite google applications to date. Love my google home mini and every other google product I’ve bought has worked great, but this apps usability even compared to the google home app has been nothing but issues on my Xbox or IPhone X
Has Potential but Falls Short for iPhone 6 Plus
Does not have the ability to wake from sleep when plugged into my car which means that I have to wake Siri to open the Google Assistant App while driving my car.
Does not have the ability to silence my phone or take it off of silence because it is an iPhone.
The only time it is useful is in the morning when I click on the microphone and say, “Good morning Google.” At that time it follows the routine. I have gone over every setting and it does not provide the hands free usage which makes it useless. When I ask for it to tell me the weather or traffic, it pulls up the websites. It is no better than Siri in any way and is actually deficient because I can use Siri hands free while driving. I can wake Siri with, “Hey Siri,” while it is plugged in and can tell it to send text messages, read text messages, open apps like music, notepad, etc. Because I use Google for most things, I was looking forward to the Google Assistant but rarely use it and am likely to delete it.
