The Google app (just the basic Google app and associated widgets, etc; not Gmail, Google Play, Chrome, Photos, Docs, etc) is not working on my Samsung Galaxy S9;

I have had the phone since last July and it has never worked properly. What happens is that if I open the Google app (or try to use a widget, open any push notifications, view my reminders set up in Assistant, etc), it opens, then immediately (before I can do anything in the app), opens Chrome with basic Google in a new tab.

I cannot even open any advanced settings for the app while trying to access them through the Samsung Settings -> Apps menu. I've just dealt with the annoyance since I got the phone but finally decided to seek help, since I can't find any info on this through internet searches.

If there is any information you feel is missing, please let me know, and I will add it.
