    When I go to chrome, I hit the mic button, and say "Time in New york", it searches it, but also says it out loud to me. I dont want it to do that. How do I stop my voice searches from talking back to me the answers, I just want to search it not hear it out loud.

    I have a galaxy s5.

    I know its NOT the Now Cards thing, I tried checking that.

    Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! Open Google Settings, then tap Search & Now>Voice>Speech Output, and turn it to Off.

    There is no option to turn it off in Speech Output settings. Only choices are "On" or "Hands-free only". What the heck? I want to turn it off!

    What happens if you select Hands-free Only? That should limit it to speaking when you're using a Bluetooth or wired headset.

    What game2t is saying, though, is that there's no "Off" setting for Speech Output--only "On" or "Handsfree Only."

    Hands free only setting still talks back every time I do a voice search on Google Chrome. This is without a headset or bluetooth. Frustrating as I don't want to listen to a sometimes fairly lengthy response to my search query as I can read it much faster. Any ideas? Note I have a Samsung Tab A and a Samsung Note 4 and the problem occurs on both.
