How do you use normal Google (NOT GO!) on Android 8 Oreo?

I am using Android 8.1 Oreo and I want to use normal Google app. I am talking about the one that lets you save images to collections and doesn't show trends that nobody cares about. The old one. Not Google GO. Is there a way to switch off go mode or something?

Welcome to Android Central! There is no "Go Mode" on an Android Go phone -- it's always Android Go. Android Go is a barebones system intended for ultra-budget devices.
