    Yup, Uninstall Updates (best done via Settings > Applications > Google App > tap to open) resolves this - you don't need to (or can you even?) fully uninstall Google App. Back to earlier or factory version will be fine.

    But don't forget to then go to the Google App info page in Play Store, click on the three dots (upper right corner) and disable auto-update. Otherwise it'll reinstall itself and the problem will return. No telling if Samsung or Google is, ultimately, responsible for this (is it happening on all Android devices?), so no real way we'll know if it's fixed in later builds...?

    Just wanted to note, I have an S4 from t-mobile and uninstalling the Google search update fixed mine too.

    Performed the fix of uninstalling the latest Google app update and turned off auto updates in the Play Store; home button functions like normal again. The Google app continues to show up as an installed app in the Play Store (good) but is now missing from the Application Manager (bad?); has anybody else noticed this?

    I found out what caused it. Earlier today google pushed an update for their google quick search app ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...quicksearchbox ), this update broke my home button.

    So uninstall the app and you should be fine for now.
    worked!!!

    I am as well having this problem and was hoping Google would send out a new update as they are aware of the issue. I want to still use Google on my phone. How do I uninstall the most recent update only? Thanks

    This is so annoying & when is this going to be fixed? On my S3 SGH-T999L Android 4.3 I had to uninstall google updates & then turn off app & my google search widget gone on home screen & google voice. Anyone know how to update this to 4.4 or 5.0? as It says no update for phone.

    Thanks for the info it worked great. I figured it was something like that since two of my tablets did this right around the same time, but still made me a little worried my tablets might be dying or somthing.

    Welcome to Android Central! The Google app gets updated with some regularity, so wait until the next app update. In the meantime, make sure to send Google feedback through the Google app's help menu. The more feedback they get about this, the more likely they'll pay attention to it, and hopefully fix it in the next app update.

    What do you mean that you had to turn off the app after uninstalling the updates for the Google app? Do you mean you tapped the Disable or Turn Off button for the Google app? You shouldn't have to do that, since uninstalling the updates has worked for most people here.

    Welcome to Android Central! Unfortunately, there is no easy way to do that -- you can only uninstall all updates, thus reverting it to the factory installed version.

    Hi!
    I had the same problem with my samsung s4 galaxy. I have solved it by going to the settings-aplication manager-google app (you have to disable it and uninstall it) after that I turn off and on my phone and i don't have trouble anymore.
    I hope this will help😊
