samsung gear s2 voice input
GREENTURTLEMAIL

I couldn't get the voice input on the Samsung Gear S2 to work.  I kept trying to send text messages using voice input, and it kept saying "voice input failed."

So I contacted Samsung support, and they waited until after I factory reset my watch (so now I have to start over with customizing the watch the way I want), to tell me oh by the way, we disabled that feature.  You can't send texts using voice input.

I mean, the option to use the feature is there, but it doesn't work.  The last update disabled the feature, according to Samsung support.

Seriously?  I paid a lot of money for this watch.  One of the MAJOR features of this watch is to be able to speak into your watch a text message and send it.

Since one of the major advertised features of this watch is disabled, I think I should get at least a little money back.

I had the same problem. I changed my language input to English (UK) and now I can send voice replies by text again. Sounds dumb, but it works again. Good luck!

Yeah I ended up taking my watch to the verizon store and she couldn't figure it out either, so they swapped out for another watch, and it did the same thing, then we tried UK english and it worked.  I don't know why, but, it does...
