I recently experienced a problem on a Moto X where the Google Search box on the Home screen did not work. When tapping the microphone or field, it did nothing. Here’s how we fixed it.
Warning, these steps will reset your Home screen. You will have to re-organize your icons because they will be reset to factory defaults. You will not lose data though.
- Open “Settings“.
- Select “Applications“.
- Select “Application manager“.
- Location “Launcher” in the list.
- Tap “Storage“.
- Tap the “Clear data” button.
The Google Search box should now work.
