    What do you mean "opens all apps"? Do you mean opens IN all apps? I'm just trying to make sure that I'm not missing out on some functionally
    Tell it to open an app and it'll open it. Example, tell it "open Facebook" and Facebook should open.

    Google Now still works. You can access it by tapping on the "G" app icon in the google app folder or your app drawer.

    Correct. That's all I use. Google Assistant is dead to me. For now.

    I had Allo's Google Assistant version approved for permissions. Apparently when I uninstalled Allo and gave permissions to the long press home screen/"Ok Google" version of Google Assistant it worked. I don't think you can have both versions of GA controlling native functions, i.e. "Ok Google, open the Chomp app."

    How do you access Google now on tap with Google assistant?

    I use that daily. If it's gone, is there a way to block the update?

    You swipe up from the bottom of the screen after bringing up assistant. Looks a little different but still effective

    I haven't had much luck with that, but starting the Google app seems to be a good way to get to Google Now.

    So they pretty much hindered the use of the TAP feature

    Yes, the replaced the icon interface of On Tap with a more intelligent voice based system. But there will be some stuff added back in as time goes.

    So does it recognize numbers and addresses on screen? What about selecting what you want it to analyze?

    It does recognise stuff (I use it for spotify info).. just scroll down past the assistant thingy. Not sure about addresses, etc.

    I haven't figured out if it can do the "select stuff to analyze" functionality.

    Yes on numbers, etc... No on text selection yet.

    I have it on my LG G4, and my only complaint is the speed on opening, as it still has the OnTap scan animation before opening. Assistant itself is great, however, especially when paired with IFTTT.

    I just realized I have it, and I hate it. All I want to use it for is voice dialing (and only because LG didn't include an OEM voice dial app), and now I have to hit the headset button and say the command twice to get it to call.

    Do you have the newer UI, the one with the 'what's on my screen?' button? Because that is actually quick.. hit that as soon as GA launches and you start to get results quite fast.

    Yeah, when I open it once, it does the animation. If I close it and then reopen right after, it goes straight to assistant. Looks like a ram thing.

    To be honest, I think it's just buggy at times.

    Well, at any rate, when it first became available, it consistently took upwards of 2-3 seconds to fully come up. Now it's 1-2 when it does the animation and less than 1 when it doesn't. An upgrade is an upgrade, even if inconsistent, I suppose.

    Oh, they have made a lot of progress on it since it launched. The speed improvements are noticeable, most definitely. Along with the screen search and screenshot enhancements (they weren't there to start with). There's other stuff already in the works, like more direct text input.

    I'm 100% confident that we'll keep seeing enhancements like this on a fairly regular basis... just takes a little bit of time. Google Now was really handcuffed when it first became available... G-Board (ne Google Keyboard), Photos, etc... That's how Google rolls. Release a new feature, build it up over time.

    I accidentally updated Google and now I'm sick with assistant. 4 times today I needed to use the text select tool and it's not there. Is there any way to downgrade this app back?

    Not easily. And it involves forcing google services to be held back, which is usually a recipe for disaster.
