    Default Google voice search not working!

    My Google voice search app is not appearing. I have gone to Google play store and it won't even let me install from there. Can anyone help me?

    So you don't get a voice prompt if you long press the search button? Because it should be preinstalled already.

    I can get the voice prompt when I use the keyboard. But I can't get the actual app by itself. This all happened after I got ics and did a factory reset.

    What happens if you're on your homescreen and you long press the search button? Nothing?

    Also, you know that you need a data connection for voice search to work, right? So either 3G/4G or Wifi needs to be on.

    I think sfg49r means he doesn't have the shortcut / icon to press (I didn't on one of my Razrs). Search the forum for:

    Missing the Voice Search button? Here's the fix

    I downloaded the recommended app and had "Voice Search" back in minutes.

    I see--but my point was that a shortcut isn't necessary, since long-pressing the hard search button is a built-in shortcut. If that's not working, I would wonder if there's something wrong with the Voice Search function itself. Voice Search is a stock app, so it can't be uninstalled--that's why you can't install it from Google Play. The only thing you could do there would be to update it, if an update were available.

    While I like the shortcut, I certainly didn't know about long-pressing the hard search button. That's a very good tip. I've learned two good things on my first day on Android Central.
