I could definitely use some help as I have just spent several hours trying to find out why my Google Voice typing seems to have changed from a simple, gray interface to something that looks like- and operates like- something from Romper Room. Honestly, I think somehow my phone is using an older or outmoded version of the voice to text, Complete with random punctuation, random spaces, random capitalization, repeating sentences, and stopping short halfway through a recording.
I've never had to ask a question in one of these forums, so I don't know what sort of information is needed. I'm currently on a Samsung S 20 which is fully updated. I'm using the Samsung keyboard and the Google Voice typing, which is what I've been using pretty much since day one. Nothing has changed there. I have photos of the problem Added below, with the first one being the new Uninvited Google Voice typing, and the second one being the interface I used to have. I will try my best to describe the situation, But if any contributor is need specific system information, please don't hesitate to ask. I don't know a whole lot about these phones and this is my first attempt at a help Forum, so I'm guessing I'm leaving out some critical info.
It seems that after installing an update on my phone this morning, my pale gray interface for Google Voice changed to a huge, blue circle with microphone on a plain white backdrop, and it is duplicating half of my sentences, mistyped words, and failing to autocorrect things such as there, their, and they're as pertaining to the sentence. It doesn't operate as smoothly as the gray interface, with no options to make Corrections without having to completely Go back to the original keyboard. I also seem to have lost the ability to touch on a word and have spelling suggestions or variants Appear almost like a pop down window.
I've spent quite a bit of time trying to correct this, and Truthfully, I'm about ready to throw my phone through the window! Any help will be greatly appreciated because as it stands, my speech to text Is now horrific. Thank you!!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have the solution, it was a software problem... it is just enough to uninstall the last Google update and downgrade to the former version
Google Voice Typing is now the same old one it used to be!

I have been using SwiftKey for years and now I have to switch to another Google app because their voice texting app stinks or is it intentional so I can't use SwiftKey?
I am having this very same problem. When did the phones update and switch to the white interface? I hate it; no auto correct or suggest, just plain old unhelpful. I notice a settings symbol by the microphone now too and tried that to no avial. PLEASE someone in the Samsung community address how we can switch back to the old voice typing feature (grey background). This new one is useless.
This is my third attempt at trying to reply. I am having the same problem and have not been able to solve it. I do not have the option of Google gboard. I have a Samsung Galaxy S7. I've had the same problem start a month ago and then it mysteriously Resort and back to the nice version. Today I'm back to the big blue microphone. Will someone please respond with a solution. This is making me crazy
