    Can anyone provide a concise summary of OP's original query? Because right now it's as clear as mud. TIA.
    As a US citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude.

    Fascism is here led by a hypersensitive psychopathic dictator having complete power, obsessively suppressing criticism, regimenting industry & commerce. Emboldening racism & aggressive nationalism.

    No worries. Google at times seems to lack a unified strategy across their product lines and some attempts by Google to unify their products has caused confusion. The only Google products I frequently use are Google Voice and the Nest Thermostat. I have used Android phones in the past and may in the future.

    It's clear to me this has nothing to do with Google Voice regardless of the thread title.

    Here's a good article about Google Voice and how to use it with mobile phones: https://www.prepaidphonenews.com/201...gle-voice.html

    ok Lets forget the title im going to try clarify what im talking about here :

    Thanks bw interesting article, though much in it about how business owners or anybody advertising online will react / deal to mobile voice searches that yield different results in googles search engine than typing.

    Partly because of auto complete , but more because when people type a question or ask it they use different grammar.

    IN ANYCASE:

    Ive been playing around with these features i dont think google has done that much to change search algorithms for voice . When i use the ok google on my browser i get the "assistant" that responds with the generic.

    Queries:
    Who makes the best pizza in east london
    where can i find the best pizza in east london
    I am lookin for the best pizza




    -------------------------------- the best pizza
    {"here are the listings for" the query and keywords that the results are based on. "near East london"}

    I think that underlined part of the response to the query is where all the relevance for the search is placed and obviously the location. ( but thats already embedded into google search algorithm regardless if you mention it or not)

    Whats interesting when i go a little more in depth with questions , the "assistant" , stops responding and brings me up a typed search.

    This is all done via " ok google " from the browser just to clarify.

    Now its stated that , "google assistant" is the follow up to "google now" and can be integrated with google home .... i am wondering if it will operate on the similar manner as ok google in terms of how it produces search results.

    I cannot test this because its apparently only available to pixel phone , although ive read about some dodgy workarounds with unverified apks and rooting android devices which im not going to do for a test.

    Im hoping this will clarify things for everybody here.

    As explained to callmejake a few posts above in almost at the beginning of this thread, when i said "google voice" i was generalising ( perhaps wrongly ) to all of google different voice search apps.

    Apologies to everyone .
    Regards

    It's simply that the OP meant "google voice" line of technologies, not "Google Voice" the product.

    Ragnar, I think you posted in the wrong section of the forum. Google Voice is a specific telephony product, hardly related to Google's voice recognition products. I'm sure many people would be interested in discussing Home and Assisant and related technology, but you aren't reaching those people by posting in this section.
