We noticed as of November 2020 the microphone icon within YouTube app for Samsung TV is now missing. This means I can no longer voice search within the YouTube app. This icon was previously between my previous searches and alphabet. Pressing the microphone icon on native remote invokes bixby, but previously I could select this now missing icon then select microphone icon on remote and it would invoke YouTube voice search. This is now no longer possible to search within the app with my voice. It was always so amazingly convenient to search google YouTube app with my voice. Please bring this native voice search app button back to YouTube!
