    Thank you so much! This "new" google play feature reacts so much faster than the "new/updated" one.

    Now when you go back to your messages, the option for using a MIC is still
    there. It looks different, but it works fine- PROBLEM GOES AWAY UNTIL GOOGLE FIXES IT!

    Jen6483, I cam across that tip to, from another site. However I found no difference after clearing the cache partition. The box still shows up, and stays past it's welcome.

    Same thing happens to me on the Moto X v2.

    By the way, there's a thread open in the Google forums. People should probably post there so Google actually sees the issue; go to the Google Search forum and search for the post "Google Now Tap to Speak frozen" (sorry, I can't post links here)

    TEMPORARY SOLUTION!!! I hope there is a permanent solution soon though, because all other suggestions have failed for me. I have a T-Mobile Samsung Note 4 and Google Voice freezes several times a day. The only temporary solution that I have found is to clear the recently used apps-one by one, or maybe all of them simultaneously. This immediately removed the frozen Google Voice box. I hope Google, Samsung or whoever developed these expensive devices will acknowledge and fix this very annoying problem. Before this Note 4, I had a free HTC Desire 510 and it never happened once. I really like this Note 4 and I hope they fix the bugs with one of their updates.

    I hope this will help a lot of annoyed Google Voice users.

    It's the button to the left of the home screen button.

    Now I hope someone finds a way to fix the camera from starting out unfocused. I have to wait for it to auto-focus or shake it a few times. And no, It doesn't have the plastic film over the lens, tried factory data reset and I have replaced it twice with "new" phones. This has happened from day one.

    I cleared the recently used apps and it removed the Google Voice screen immediately. I have the Note 4 though, so I wouldn't know if this temporary solution would help with any other type of phone.

    I have it, too. I've tried friends' phones and was able to reproduce the issue on them, too; so it should be a priority for Google to fix, but it's still there.

    Reproduced the issue several times and found that the the issue was caused by entering text into a text field via the speech to text feature, then without closing that speech to text box or completing the action I hit the button on the side to turn off the screen. Found that SOMETIMES closing all the apps clears the box, but it only seems to work if there are several apps open, not just one.

    This is for the Galaxy S5.

    I have a Note 5 with the same issue. I contacted Samsung Support and they had me go into settings/applications/Google Voice to Text application and uninstall the updates.
    This seemed to fix the problem until it automatically updated itself. I then had to go thru the same process over again.

    Good luck!!

    Another temporary solution is to turn the phone on landscape mode and it will at least allow you to type. Once you rotate it back it returns but at least it will let you type and see your screen.

    Had this problem startup yesterday couldn't find any solutions but eventually i figured out a fix for my phone.

    I went to Play Store and downloaded/updated "Google Keyboard"

    In settings find Keyboard & input methods and choose Google Keyboard.

    This worked for me hope this helps others
