Hi everyone,

Thanks so much for the additional information you've provided. So sorry for the confusion; we misunderstood the original feedback as being related to device voice assistant (e.g. "Ok, Google", Siri, etc.) issues with interacting with the IMDb app.

We've confirmed with our mobile engineering team that the microphone for voice search in the IMDb app for Android was removed in a recent update to the app's suggestion search experience. We've forwarded this feedback to that team for consideration for future updates to the search experience, and are changing this post to an "Idea", where it can be reviewed by other IMDb staff and users.

Let us know if we can offer any further help.

Yes, Claire.  We've all been writing about the voice search within the IMDB app.  I cannot imagine why someone would remove it on purpose, but if that's truly the case it should be a simple fix.  Identify the programmer that screwed up my favorite app and have him/her fix it. It's not even important WHY it was removed.  What's important is putting the microphone back in the search feature within the IMDB app.  Simple.  We'll all be looking for its return.  Thank you for your help.

Good luck with that Steven. I reported it shortly after it disappeared, over a year ago. Today is Easter, so maybe next year????
