    Default bar across the screen that was voice

    On the Samsung S5 there was a light bar going across like the center of the screen. it was a google voice bar to talk to.
    It has disappeared.
    Was it a google bar.
    How can I get it back.
    Found out it is really good to use.

    Went to the AT&T store today. They are a AT&T franchise store. Still didn't have any Samsung S5 in yet.
    But they got the google widget bar back across the screen.
    I was happy.

    For future reference you long-press on an empty portion of your screen->go to widgets->find the Google search bar->press and hold until you drag it on your home screen.

    Remember finding Widgets one time. But already forgot where they was.
    I've been on a Android phone for 4 days now. A lot of the terms used. I don't even know what they are.
    The lady pinched the screen. Had a clear Box. And somehow found the apps and drug then in the clear box and let it open up somehow.
    And then it was across the screen.
    Sorry but I'm struggling a lithe .

    Yeah with android there is often more than one way to "skin a cat".

    I put that last part in quotes because I do not actually condone such activity.

    Glad you got it working!

    I'm gonna have to just have time and be with folks that know the android.
    Talked to a dude that was retired the other day like me.
    He said it took him a year before he learned and liked the Samsung Galaxy phone.
    Right now I do not have anybody that knows it that lives around me.
    And it seem like the system is different on the previous versions of galaxy phones.
    And its a little different on the other android phones.
    Handed my S5 to a girl with a S4
    It operated different and she said I'm lost.
