    I deactivated the S-voice command by eliminating the double-click of the home sceeen button, but now I would like to have that feature back. Anyone know how I can do that? I cannot find S-voice anywhere in my S4 now.

    It should be in your app drawer, but if it is not there I'm stumped. I can dig out the .apk as a flashable .zip, but you would need to be rooted to (re)install it.

    There is a voice search app, but not an s-voice app. Are they the same thing?

    Are you sure you didn't hide it from your app drawer?

    Nope, Voice search is Google voice search. I'm digging around now for you to re install I know i have the .zip on my phone, but that's no good if your not rooted.

    Anyway here is the .zip:


    Give it a while and it'll be there, uploading ATM.

    Not sure if I did or not. How do you hide and unhide an app?

    When you open your app drawer, hit Menu>Show Hidden Apps

    If it's listed on the list that opens, it was hidden and you need to put a checkmark in the box and hit save to bring it back to your regular app drawer.

    Okay. I checked, but I do not have any hidden apps. I double and triple checked my app drawer to see if S-voice was in it, but it is just not there. My phone is not rooted, so I know I didn't mess with any settings that could have deleted it. The only thing I did was when I double clicked my home button, I unchecked the box to disable the double-click feature of S-voice.

    From the home screen, check Menu/Settings/More.../Application Manager.

    Swipe to the right to the one that says all.

    Scroll to the very bottom to see if you disabled it.

    Thank you. I was looking alphabetically and didn't see it in the S's. But when I scrolled all the way down, it was there (with one other disabled app).
    I don't remember disabling it or the other app, but I let someone else play with my phone for a bit, and I think they disabled them.
