    I have a Galaxy Note 4 (AT&T) and use Google Keyboard rather than the Samsung keyboard. I use Voice Typing quite a bit, but the last week or so, the Tap to Speak card that pops up when I hit the microphone button won't disappear. It stays on every screen. The actual voice typing icon on it is unresponsive as well as the x to close button. The option button works but the card remains. I have switched the input method to the samsung keyboard and back but it won't vanish. It vanishes when i rotate to landscape view but reappears when rotated back to portrait. Using the keyboard is impossible with it there, but if i hit the microphone button again, it raises a second card over the stuck one. The stuck one remains. Only restarting the phone will make it go away. Any ideas?

    Same issue on my Verizon version of Note 4. It seemed to show up soon after the Android System WebView update, but I can't be sure.
    The only solution for me so far is to reboot as well.
    It sticks if I leave Voice dialing open while the screen goes to sleep. If I turn if off prior to that, it closes fine.

    PS: I uninstalled the Android System Webview, and it still does it.
    I'm using Nova Launcher.

    Galaxy s5 here, voice keyboard was working fine until last week. Now I have to restart the phone even if I'm driving. It's pretty dangerous

    I'm having the same issue, so I assume there was an upgrade that happened on the back end that introduced a glitch. I did find a way to remove it without rebooting, so thought I'd share (I have a Galaxy S4)

    1. Click on the settings icon on frozen screen (for me, this still works). It will activate the settings page for Google Voice Typing (GVT)

    2 Hard click (hold/press) on center menu button--this will show all open applications, with GVT screen open on top.

    3. Slide or X out to close that app, and the frozen screen will disappear with it!

    Hope this helps others until a permanent solution is found.

    THANK YOU AMREG! I'm having the same exact issue with my non-rooted\stock Galaxy 5 Verizon phone. It happens to me about once a day. Before your trick rebooting was my only option.

    Same issue, 2 week old Galaxy S6 Edge PLUS. Issue started after last update, I believe it was the 5.1.1 - haven't looked it up yet. It is intermittent, and I can usually clear it by pressing the power button to put the phone on standby and then waking it back up. I use voice typing ALL the time - really needs a fix.

    Goto:

    Apps or Application Manager in Settings. Scroll over to "All'. Find Google "Google App". Uninstall Updates....then close out all process running in background. Make sure you have Auto Update, in Google Play Store set to never. This is just a temp fix until Google can fix this in another update.

    GOTO PLAY STORE>GOTO MY APPS>THEN SETTINGS>CHOOSE DO NOT AUTO UPDATE APPS

    THEN

    GOTO>SETTINGS>APPLICATION/APPLICATION MANAGER>SCROLL TO "ALL">FIND GOOGLE APP>UNINSTALL UPDATES.

    THEN

    TURN PHONE OFF
    GET INTO RECOVERY (see video below)
    CLEAR CACHE PARTITION
    REBOOT

    Note: This is a temporary fix, until Google can fix the error that's causing this.

    Should be good to go after that!

    Good Luck

    Not a bug, but you have to go deep into settings to enable Google Voice typing. Go to Settings > Language & Input > Default keyboard, click more settings and enable Google Voice typing.

    It works. I tried it on Honor 7 and Lenovo K3 Note
