I have a galaxy S23 Ultra and updated this morning to 6.1 and now can't use voice to text in my text app.  It installed some AI Advanced Intelligence, which I've disabled and turned off in every area, yet it's still functioning and I cannot use voice to text anywhere.  

Voice input in keyboard is on samsung voice input as I do not choose to allow the permissions required for the gboard (they're riduculous!)

Please advise as to how to get the basic voice to text feature back.  These updates keep screwing up the phones and it's frustrating and annoying to say the least. Just want the old, simple functions please.  Thanks.

The microphone button is now in the bottom left corner if it's not show open your settings and go to general management and select keyboard list and default and toggle on keyboard button on Navigation bar1711992368327.jpg1711992368356.jpg

Alternatively, set the space bar to long press for voice to text. Settings>General Management>Samsung Keyboard Settings>Swipe, Touch, & Feedback>Touch and hold space bar

You can also use Gboard. https://support.google.com/gboard/answer/2781851?hl=en&ref_topic=9024098&sjid=16511977585346166550-N...

Thank you for this.  All my settings are as you said but the microphone is still not showing.  Instead there is a mini keyboard which takes me to keyboard input when I select it. 😞 I just want the old OS back.

Press and hold the keyboard icon for the option to change it to voice input.

I called in an used smart tutor which gave them access to my phone.  They were able to get the microphone back by resetting everything, so it now shows like your photo above.  However we cannot get rid of the AI unfortunately.

You can go into the Advanced features - Advanced intelligence and you can click on each and toggle them off

It's in the bottom left corner of your screen, next to the back button.
