    Default Voice Search Widget?

    Is there a widget to activate a voice search without having to have the whole 4x1 search bar on a home screen?

    Not any good ones, I just hold down the home button and it launches google now, then search that way.

    There is one. If it's not on your phone, you can get it here... I thought mine was already on the phone when I got it under all apps, but I could be remembering wrong ..

    That's what I've been doing too but it's just kind of annoying having to wait for now to launch then hit a second button. I can't beat my friends in a race against Siri having to do all of that!

    You should be walking all over Siri with Google Now. Even if they are on an iPhone 5

    I was able to get a 1 x 1 widget for voice search using QuickShortcutMaker. Much quicker than long press on home button, taking you directly to google now with it already activated to listen.

    Edit: I finally found the 1x1 icon under apps, not widgets. My bad.
