    Thread Starter

    I have a galaxy s5 and the microphone button on my keyboard has been replaced with a gear (or settings) button. So I can no longer voice text.
    I have tried pressing and holding the gear button but it does not show a microphone for me to use or reinstall; just opptions for writing with my finger, my clip board, settings, emoticons, and keyboards.
    Is there a specific app that enables the voice texting? (I think there was an app deleted from my phone but I'm not sure what it was or if it is related to this issue.)

    Have you checked to see what the active keyboard is? Are you using either the Samsung or Google keyboard, or are you using another one?
