    What is the microphone icon on the status bar? This icon only shows up on my phone on the lock screen and I have been unable to find what the icon is for.

    What happens if you tap on it? I'd guess it's S-Voice, but could possibly be Google Search.

    Nothing, it's on the lockscreen status bar; once I swipe to unlock it disappears. Annoying I cannot figure out what it is; I'll post a screenshot when I have the chance.

    Interesting. What Screen lock setting does one have to use to get this option? I use Swipe, and I don't have this one, even though it's shown under Swipe effects in the Verizon manual. Could this be a Verizon deficiency?

    You can disable the S Voice feature on your Samsung Galaxy S6 if you don’t really care for the feature. Many users accidentally activate it by double-tapping the “Home” key and would like to prevent it from launching. You can turn it off with these steps.


    Option 1

    Open “Apps” > “Settings” > “Application manager“.
    Swipe over to the “All” list.
    Scroll down and select “S Voice“.
    Tap the “Turn off” button.
    Option 2

    Option “Apps” > “S Voice” or double-tap the “Home” button.
    Tap the Menu icon located at the upper-right portion of the screen.
    Uncheck the “Open via the home key” option.
    The S Voice feature is now disabled and will no longer launch when you double-tap the Home button.
