    You know the Google widget that use to be called Google Now?

    Well when you type in that to search, it will open up a whole different Google app and do the search results there.

    Problem is that these two apps are different and sometimes when I type in something to be searched and hit search, the other app will open and in many cases the last thing I searched previously before is going to be searched instead. This is really annoying now.

    I have a Samsung Advant phone. It didn't always do this. That's why I know something wrong. Been like this for over a year now since I did some update to the Google Now app.

    I think what you are seeing is the new Google Assistant, which is kind-of-sort-of-maybe-eventually replacing Google Now.
