    Disabling the google app will also remove speech functions from google maps, samsung keyboard, and google IME.

    If you're using the default Samsung keyboard I thought it was missing at first too. But there is a button on the bottom row, second from the left. If you long press that it brings up a mini list of options and one is the microphone for voice to text. Once you set this to microphone this then becomes the default option for that button.
    I was going insane since I got this phone until I saw this post. Thank you for the info!

    I had same problem. Enable google app which should also enable voice search. Then long press the emoji on keyboard. Mic should show.

    I tried holding down the setting icon on the bottom left of the keyboard and the only thing that appears is the Clipboard, the Smiley Faces, and the Setting icon. The Microphone is missing. How do I get that back?

    Unfortunately I think maybe this is a Samsung bug? Sometimes I set it to the microphone button and it seems to change back to the smiley button. I haven't paid attention close enough to see what might trigger this. I just checked and it was on smiley, switched to microphone and restarted and it kept the microphone icon so doesn't seem to be caused by a restart. Wish I could be more helpful :-(

    Have you disabled The Google App or GNow on Tap? The microphone was missing when I disabled that. Just re-enable those apps and it should pop right back up.

    Thank you, that was the issue for me!

    I had disabled my Google app. As soon as I enabled it, the microphone reappeared. This was the only thing that worked I tried every other option that was listed. Good luck!
    I tried all these steps. Nothing works. Not able to screen shot to show still not there.

    YAY!!! Thanks for the help. I was trying to go to the App Store to get a different keypad because it was making me crazy. Once I enabled Google again, the mic reappeared.

    I have,a similar problem. The microphone was replaced by a smile face for several smiley faces. How do I get the microphone back?

    Just tap and hold down the smiley button key next to the space bar and pick the microphone it will then appear you will not have to choose this every time only if you change it to any of the other functions

    The smiley button has a little function wheel in the top right-hand corner just press and hold it to choose any of the other options one being the microphone

    It was hidden in the emoji button and followed what 👆said. It toggles back and forth between microphone for text and emoji.
