    I'm using the samsung keyboard, but the voice input is only through samsung voice input, which sucks. how do I get back google voice input on the samsung keyboard, just like I had on note 5 ?

    This is a huge issue for me as well. I seriously prefer the Samsung virtual keyboard, but I detest S-Voice. Anyone had any luck with adding a dedicated number row to the Google keyboard? Or with re-enabling Google Voice input with the Samsung stock keyboard?

    Can you post a screen capture of your keyboard as it is now? What carrier are you using?

    Word on the street is that Samsung has officially, deliberately disabled Google Voice input with their keyboard. To use Google Voice input, you must select the Google keyboard or install a third-party keyboard app, like SwiftKey, Swipe, or Thumb Keyboard. I personally love Thumb Keyboard for a tablet: You can intricately customize keyboard size, features, shortcuts, layout (both portrait and landscape, and have different layouts for each orientation). I have no idea how much lag using a different keyboard app will add to my Note 7. Hoping none.

    I am using SwiftKey and it has the number row plus arrow keys. I was trying to do a screen capture to show you but it won't let me.

    I've used SwiftKey. I don't love it.

    Lets just say i travel alot

    I have the same problem, and have been going crazy trying to fix it. From what i hear Samsung DID NOT disable this feature, it is something going on with the samsung keyboard and the google voice keyboard. I have cleared cache on the google search app, reset the phone twice. I know how to get the microphone button, but when i hit it i get s voice. If i disable s voice, i still get svoice. If i turn off samsung voice keyboard, i get a button that does nothing when you press it

    So it looks like Samsung DID disable this feature. Whether or not deliberately, the feature to use Google Voice input with the default Samsung keyboard is effectively disabled.

    Where did you hear that they idt not disable Google Voice integration?
