If there going to allow ads then you should have the option to switch them off.
I wouldn't mind these ADs if Google gave me its Assistant free of charge. Otherwise - thanks, no thanks.
krystian, 16 Mar 2017Better than irfanview?than anything indeed. Irfanview I used to use it 13 years ago. It's ugly and still looks ugly now. Picasa is at another level though I'm sure Irfanview has a lot of nice features.
I don't see the big deal, Google Now always showed movie and music release dates in the card feed. This seems the same, just spoken out loud.

What an abysmal decision by Google there is no way in hell that I'll be getting one of these.

This isn't an ad. Google home didn't say "hey buy Polaroid glasses because they are on sale". He just suggested an interesting event for today and I would have appreciated it. After all it's a "By the way" and Google assistant is an AI thing, which should smarter than the normal question and reply robot.
So that's why they abandoned desktop Picasa, no ads in it. It was/is the best picture viewer on Windows and I won't move away from it until something similar comes. :(
