    Since I'm on a roll lately with posting figured I'd keep going with it.

    Somehow on my Galaxy S7 I managed to get it so I could use Google Voice to dictate messages (texts), while using the Samsung keyboard. However for some reason I have the Samsung keyboard (which I prefer since it auto corrects across almost every program I use...whereas Google simply won't show up) but it's forcing me to use Samsung Voice. I don't want to use Samsung Voice. I've disabled S Voice but it still defaults me to Samsung. I'm sure I'm missing an obvious setting somewhere....

    Look in settings / general management / language and input / Then click Text to Speech.

    There you can choose Google or Samsung

    Well this is weird...I have Google selected but it definitely made me "ok" Samsung when I tried to activate the mic the first time. Setting still shows Google, but this isn't the window I'm familiar with from the Galaxy S7. I think it's forcing me onto Samsung's...and I partially think that because it made me ok. before it would do any voice conversion and also because it's not as good. It's making way more mistakes.

    PS thank you for the quick reply. It was/is driving me nuts.

    that is for Text to Speech actually. he is looking for Dictation which is Speech to Text.


    For the OP, I know that Swiftkey uses Google engine for dictation. I just switched back to the Samsung keyboard to check, and it does give me Samsung's. I use Swiftkey anyway, so it works fine, but I wonder if there is some setting in the Samsung keyboard to choose Google for dictation...
