    Default Google search crashing

    Ever since the last update, it has been force closing every time I long press the search button from the home screen. If I open it from the app drawer it doesn't have any problem. If I uninstall updates then it's fine. This is on a RAZR MAXX. Anyone else?

    I don't know if the problem is device specific or not. The RAZR is pretty flaky. Lots of apps routinely force close. This is the first time I've had such problems with Google search.

    Yea, my Droid 4 is doing the same thing. I also noticed last night that they changed the hotword from "ok google" to just "google" and while it was being implemented neither were working. I'm currently running an older version but it seems long-press on search is redundant since a tap opens the same thing. My issue is that I used to use long-press on search as a quick way of launching specific apps or toggles like disable/enable rotate and now everything just points to google search. I'll keep tinkering with this and if I find any sort of solution I'll share it.

    I fixed it by getting a new phone.
