"This item isn't available in your country" Really?! For Heaven's sake, I'm in Nigeria. Aren't our internet connections slow enough? There must be something I'm missing, or it's just not completed yet.

Great now we have Google Assistant, Google Now, Google Chrome, and Google Go. As much as I love Google, can they please keep it minimal. I know this is targeted at lower end phones with Android Go, but I hate it when services overlap and just make your phone bloated (I'm looking at you also Hangouts/Voice/Allo)

@blobget +1 on the Hangouts/Voice/Allo
@blobget not sure if this is a *service* though. It uses same API's that Google Search app does, being just a lightweight wrapper to embrace (and mine data from) demographics with lower end phones that had no incentive to use slow full versions of Search. It has no functionality that really differentiates it from regular web search (on, no! wallpapers! :).
Pairs well with Facebook Lite and Twitter Lite.

@rrhoover You are right. And all of them are a good way to save on those roaming charges when you are abroad. I added it to my collection "Work from your phone!": https://www.producthunt.com/@dom...
5MB download is impressive. I wonder how they manage that?
The promotional images seem to target the Indian smartphone market.
