I did something Google Now or Google services in general didn’t like. After doing a bunch of searches, people were all over the place with possible fixes. I tried them all. But, the only solution I found was to delete the Google account data and cache.

Go to Settings >> Apps >> Google Search.

Press “Clear Data” and “Clear Cache” to purge the corrupted data.

Clearing this data out should purge the badness causing Google Search to freak-out.

    Didn’t work for me. I even turned it off and back on. What DID work was changing the voice activation back to keyboard. Go to settings (looks like a cog wheel on the phone desktop) then language and input then default touchpal keyboard

      Tried everything else, just went to the default keyboard and was able to send a text. The keys are bigger too so I like that.
