    Default Need to change my keyboard default

    Before my last S4 update, I had a keyboard (can't remember what it was called) that had a row of numbers on the top AND a little speaker icon that allowed me to type using my voice. But it also allowed me to swipe. Somehow it got defaulted back to the stock Samsung keyboard with Swype (and numbers on the top row but the speaker icon is gone). I've tried various combinations to get back to what I had but I can't find it. Any thoughts?

    Ok, attached is a picture of the keyboard I USED to have, that I'm trying to get once again. It's the one on the right.

    That is definitely the stock Samsung keyboard. After the update, you need to enable Voice Typing for the microphone button to reappear.
    1. Open the Settings menu (either from the left hard key while on the home screen or from the Settings App)
    2. Go to the My Device tab
    3. Scroll down to Language & input
    4. Check the checkbox for Google voice typing
