    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'm not sure if it could affect the settings but are you using Google or Samsung text to speech? are you able to use text to speech in any other apps like Google Now? if your phone is new maybe the option doesn't come up until you turn on text to speech and train it to your voice.

    I switched between both Google and Samsung text to speech and neither is working!

    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 so much. The first day with my phone (less than a week ago) I was able to find this on my own, but then the mic disappeared and I couldn't remember where I found it. Got it back and hopefully it stays now! LOL

    Excellent advice! It's the smiley face button on my keyboard that needs to be depressed for a moment, to be exact.

    Any way to make the voice to text convenient? this hidden implementation is really poorly done. The voice recorder in text button logically should be that voice to text and it should be a simple press to begin talking....the whole idea of voice to text is to be not fussing with a keyboard.

    If the mc button could be configured to enable voice to text that would be perfect.

    Other than to replace the keyboard with a new one? I don't think you can.

    I've had my S7 for a couple of months now and I was really missing/needing the voice to text feature. I can't believe it just occurred to me to see if someone else has figured it out. Thank you so much!

    Another reason for it to be missing is because the app may be disabled, called "S Voice" in applications manager.

    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!
