    Ok, so I've been dealing with this, every Google app update, since.
    If I get a Google app update, the Google girl, manual search and Discover page all quit functioning.

    The easiest fix I've found is to reboot into SAFE MODE, check that the Google app works and then reboot into regular mode. All things Google then work. Go figure.

    THEN, I have to reinstall my Samsung theme, because it's gone; uninstall and reinstall all things in Swift Installer; reset widgets, because they are there, but blank and cannot be awakened. The easiest way I've found to setup the widgets again, is by restoring my Nova Launcher backup.

    This morning I woke up to a notification that the Google app had auto updated on the secure folder.
    Yup. No Google Girl. No Google search. No Google Discovery.
    Ugh... Here we go again...

    So I figure out how to stop app auto updates in the secure folder and get ready to perform the riggamarole.
    The first step is to uninstall Swift Installer overlays. There were two overlay updates pending, inside of Swift Installer. One was for the Google app.
    I decided to do the updates prior to the riggamarole.
    Overlay updates installed, I perform the required reboot, into regular (unsafe) mode. I have a thought... Let's just see if Google app works after the update.
    IT DOES!!!

    The Swift Installer update for the Google app overlay must have fixed the issue.

    Time will tell...
