Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Daniel Poobalan 11/16/13 5:47 AM
I am using Google Search on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 tablet which runs on Android 4.1.2 JellyBean. After the recent update, when I tried to open Google Search, my screen will go blank and an error message appeared "Unfortunately Google Search has stopped working." I am also using Google Now to enhance my Google experience. The only thing I did was to uninstall the updates and it worked fine withoUt problems. But then, Google Play has updated my Google Search again and the same problem persists. Is there any solution to solve this issue? Thanks.

Hi Gaurav,

May I know if there is any progress to resolve this issue? It is very annoying when Google Play updates my Google Search, the app will crash after I launch it and I have to uninstall the updates to make it work again without the latest Google Now version.

Update on 12/4: Please know that we're working on a fix and will update this thread with any new information.

Hello everyone,

Thanks for the information you've provided so far.  So I can troubleshoot further, could you please let me know if you've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Google Search app and if doing so corrects the problem?

I have the same problem on my Galaxy Tab 10.1.

When i start Google search manualle i get the message that Google search was stopped.

The place where the widget was positioned shows the message that the widget could not be loaded.

I tried to uninstall all updates. After that it worked but (had turned on automatic updates, sigh) when the updated were reinstalled it fails again.

Same issue on my galaxy note 10.1 on 4.1.2. Uninstalled updates and it worked then reinstalled and it immediately crashed again. Fix please Google.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sastian 11/18/13 12:53 PM
I have two galaxy note 10.1 tablets the both have this exact same issue and I have installed and uninstalled Google search with no positive results. Please fix this issue as it is tightly integrated into the entire operating system of this tablet as it comes from Samsung unmodified! I'm literally shocked to find this is gone so long with no positive resolution and have not seen anybody else find a resolution anywhere else on the web. This is a major oversight by Google

Uninstalling will only remove the updates and it worked normally. But, we want to use the latest features on Google Now.

The same problem on Samsung Galaxy SII Plus. The google search from within the Internet widget works, so it may be a problem with the google search widget.

I've been having the Google Search/Now problem for quite some time but I just updated to Play Newsstand (replaces Play Magazines) and it's also crashing upon trying to open it. There must be a common denominator in the changes these two apps received that makes them crash in my Note 10.1 2012.

Started having the same problem just now! Those mother f**ckers on android market sent me the update without asking while I was using google search on my samsung note tablet using the 10.1 android tablet O.S then it crashed. I tried repetedily but every time I try to select anything or search anything it crashes, displays the error message and the keybord pops up seconds after the google search app crashes. I hope they fix it ASAP because I don't want to have to go through internet search to use google every time on my samsung tablet.

Same exact problem and I also have a Galaxy Note 10.1. Newsstand and Now crash on loading and the poor customer service is frustrating. I've received no response from Google--not even a standard form letter regarding the issue. And it seems I am not the only one.

Yep this is awful newsstand and search are both crashing. I had to uniinstall search but thats too bad I cant can't use the new features.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/21/13 8:35 PM
I am having this issue on my note 10.1.  
Upon opening Google search, the app stops working.
Works only if I uninstall updates.  Stops working when updates are reinstalled.  
Still works on my note3.  
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/21/13 8:49 PM
Uninstalling fixes but reinstalling re-breaks it.

Possible related event: updated to the new hangouts today.  First noticed problem soon after.

(using original note 10.1)

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Matt Meulemans 11/22/13 8:45 AM
The work around I found, which might be obvious to some, is to go to the apps, uninstall updates and then uncheck the box that says update automatically.  THen when you open google search it prompted me to set it up and it asked weather I wanted to try google now and I chose yes.  So I have google now with the voice search commands and everything, just not the most recent version.  Its better than nothing!

Thanks for the post above but did not work for me on Galaxy Note 10.1.
I am actually surprised that Google release a new version that you would have to install in such a way.

Any other idea to fix this issue. I am uninstalling both apk files now.

Yes, I just figured it out.  Applications manager uninstall google voice  it reset back to original function.

I do not have google voice installed on my Note 10.1, so I don't think that is the solution in my case.

same here , update and stop working
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/23/13 5:46 PM
To those suggesting that we use Bing instead:
When we say Google search is not working on our device, we do not mean that we cannot do a simple web search via a browser...we can still do that, we mean that the app, Google search, and all of the myriad amazing and incredibly useful Google Now life assistance and integration that we have come to rely on is no longer available.  This app is an integral part of the entire Jelly Bean experience. Losing it is almost like being downgraded to ice cream sandwich.  Google has to fix this.  It's a really big deal.  Not fixing it will give S-voice a pretty big toehold.  I'm sure Samsung would love to exploit it.

Same problem I am also facing in Galaxy grand duos...since yesterday night ...its looking like some update issue from google since lot of people facing same problem in same time.
I think they need to provide some kind patch for this problem.

After uninstalling the update google play has stopped working and moving to blank screen with messages "accept access policy" after accepting its becoming blank.

Hello Gaurav,

Already any news on what Google or Samsung is up to? It is a common problem now and quite annoying.

Some information would be nice.

I was having the same probem, but my partner was not, despite having same tablet. The only difference was he had a big software update come down recently. I have now factory reset my tablet. Put google search to not update. Two big updates came down. Updated google search and seems to be working. I am wondering if  the updates came in wrong order?

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/24/13 10:11 PM
According to another forum, there is a fix for the Note 10.1.  I am implementing it right now...will know very soon.  
Using Kies, connect your tablet to your computer and then update your firmware.  There is no firmware update available ota through the settings on the device...I checked before I went through kies, but sure enough, there was one available when I hooked my tablet up to kies.  

... waiting for update to complete...

And...

It works!
Huzzah!

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/24/13 10:23 PM
The firmware update via kies works for the note 10.1 GT-N8013, but a person on another forum who is having the same issue says that there is no firmware update available via Kies for for the GT-N8000.  

The 8013 and 8010 are wifi only and the 8000 is 3g/wifi.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Jasper Nagtegaal 11/24/13 10:48 PM
Just tried. No fix from Samsung via Kies. I will address Samsung with the problem. So far it's a Samsung product related problem with Google Search.
It's not Android i guess, but the Touchwizz shell or something else in the Samsung pushed firmware on my GT8010 (note 10.1).

Another reason to go for a Nexus next time.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 jro1 11/24/13 10:54 PM
I just upgraded the firmware on my NT8013 (via USB lies on a Mac) and Search now works great. Fix worked.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Andrew Mackrodt 11/25/13 2:09 AM
Same problem on a Galaxy Note 10.1. The crash report suggests the EllipsizingTextView class is expecting an Integer (possibly related to the screen DPI) and is receiving the value "16.0dip" which is a String.

I find this is quite a major problem as I'm not able to view my magazine subscriptions via the Play Newsstand app.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Andrew Mackrodt 11/25/13 2:12 AM
That should say bpp (bits per pixel) rather than DPI*

Although it looks like a Samsung specific issue it would be nice if there were a Google fix as I'm not keen on having to update the firmware on my otherwise well functioning tablet. Besides, it worked fine in older versions of the software.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Lex Xander Milan 11/25/13 8:33 AM
found a solution! I got 10.1 as well I just went to settings>app manager> settings of app manager> reset preferences and it will put back your old version of google search bar

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Pil71 11/26/13 2:28 AM
How can we get Google to respond, this is pathetic service. When organisations become so successful they can do whatever they want without any impact. Everyone score their apps 1 star on play store. Post on their facebook  site or something, lets make the noise much more public.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/26/13 10:36 AM
The problem appears to be on Samsung's end, as evidenced by a fix via firmware update.  If you have the note 10.1 (NT8013), a firmware update via Samsung Kies will fix the issue.  It seems(based on above comments) that not all the affected devices have a firmware update fix available.  If yours does not, you should be emailing Samsung. But first, before you do anything else, see if you have a Kies update.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/26/13 10:37 AM
After trying Kies, post here and let everyone know what model you have and whether or not Kies had a fix.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Guenole de Cadoudal 11/26/13 1:49 PM
Hi,
I have Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8000, android 4.1.2, baseband N8000XXCCL1,kernel 3.0.31-961761 dpi@DELL205 #1, build number JZO54K.N8000XXCMC1). I don't understand all these codes!
When asking for software from the settings of the tablet, it tells me the the latest software is already installed.
When trying to update the firmware via Kies, I receive the message that the device “does not support initialising”.

So I feel stuck.
I have deactivated all apps auto update and not update anything anymore until the problem is solved.

If anyone has an advise...

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/26/13 2:54 PM
Kies is free Samsung software that you get from the internet and put on your desktop computer.  Once you have it installed, You then hook your Samsung device up to your computer with the USB charging cable it came with.  From there, just follow the instructions.  Once you are connected, if there is a firmware update available, it should just tell you.  Make sure you are are charged up before you start.

I don't have time to go into more detail at the moment, but from here you'll likely be able to figure it out.

Glad to see that it worked for the NT8013.  However, my Note 8 (GT5110) is on the latest firmware and it is still not working.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sastian 11/28/13 11:32 AM

Download the Kies app for your computer, connect via USB and see if you are due for a firmware update!

Can't uninstall from Galaxy Note so that is not a solution. Can install all updates, which temporarily solves problem if auto updates are turned off.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 JJC1201 11/30/13 4:41 PM
Hello. I have checked for updates and don't have any firmware or software updates. I gotta admit this is really annoying and needs fixing. I have a Samsung galaxy note 10.1 GT-n8020.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Richard464 11/30/13 6:06 PM
I went through this and completed both steps as outlined. I still have no Google Search????

What is going on here? Is there going to be a fix for this after all they broke it??

Very frustrating without this service.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/30/13 6:40 PM
I think a summary is in order:
It seems the firmware update via Kies only works for the note 10.1 model 8013.  There are multiple confirmations of this fix for that model in the comments above.  

I also see one example in the above comments of an ota firmware update (via the system update in the settings on the device itself) working for the tab 2 10.1 (model unknown), but I don't see any further confirmation of that fix, and the specific model number was never mentioned.  

I don't see any other examples of a firmware fix working.
The models that have NO firmware fix as of Nov 30 are as follows (data taken solely from comments above): Samsung galaxy note 10.1 GT-n8020, Galaxy Note 10.1 GT N8000, Tab 2 of unknown model, Note 8 (GT5110), Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5100(WiFi & 3G).  

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Richard464 11/30/13 6:50 PM
Just for the record I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab2 10.1 - GT-P5113
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Daniel Poobalan 11/30/13 9:46 PM
Thanks for the heads up, +sherlock3000. It looks like I have to wait for a miracle to happen while Google fixes this issue. In the meantime, my Google Newsstand has stopped working as well. :-(
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 john whale 11/30/13 9:48 PM
I have a gt-n8020 samsung running android 4.1.2  no firmware updates available says kies and manual update process in settings says I have latest firmware. Still can not start newsstand.

I have sent the stack trace to google must be over 100 times now.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 11/30/13 10:31 PM
It is possible that the Google staff that would normally deal with this is on holiday this weekend since it is Thanksgiving weekend in the US.  Hopefully they'll get on it bright and early Monday morning.  
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Jasper Nagtegaal 12/1/13 5:07 AM
In addition to your list:Note 10.1 GT-N8010 also no fix, neither OTA or KIES.

Reply at Samsung helpdesk in Holland briefly translated: Remove updates from Google search app and wait for firmware update on your device.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Eraesr 12/1/13 10:00 AM
Same here. GT-8010, no firmware available and Google Search and Kiosk (Newsstand) fail to start.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 12/1/13 10:54 AM
The plan of action for this issue so far is this:

If you have the Note 10.1 gt-n8013, get your firmware update via Kies.  

All other models:  Uninstall updates in your applications manager, then go in via google play and uncheck the automatic updates box.  Wait for firmware fix from Samsung.

It is unclear whether that fix will come ota or from Kies.  If it is ota, you'll just get prompted (but it doesn't hurt to check for system updates in the settings on your device).  Samsung updates often hit Kies a little earlier than ota updates, so it also doesn't hurt to go ahead and install Kies on your computer and periodically plug your device in to check.

If you have a device other than the 8013 and you get an update that fixes the issue, be sure to come here and let the everyone know which device you have where you got your update.

I doubt Google will touch this one, but they may surprise me.  Touchwiz is responsible for being compatible with a core Google app that works on pretty much every single other Android device, not the other way around.  The good news is that Samsung has at least figured out how to fix it, as evidenced by a successful fix on the 8013. Now lets hope they translate that success into a fix for all the other devices very soon.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Richard464 12/1/13 12:30 PM
Well I followed the above and removed the updates with the Application Mgr. I then turned off the Auto Updates and it returned me to the original factory installed Google Search which works.

Hopefully there will be a fix for the updates soon. But it is nice to have the feature back on my Samsung Tab2 10.1 GT-P5113.

Thanks for the details on the interim fix.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Andrew Mackrodt 12/1/13 5:32 PM
I ended up installing Cyanogenmod 10.2 on my N8010 as it's unclear how long Samsung will take to release a fixed firmware. I assume that will be whenever they release 4.3.

The apps work fine with Cyanogenmod so I can at least read the magazines that I've paid to subscribe to but am missing the TouchWiz experience (screen smart stay, multi-window, facebook calendar integration etc).

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Fausto Nomura 12/2/13 5:21 AM
Well, I'm from Brazil and I try a contact with the Samsung Brazil. They said "that do not control the applications from third parties and I should try to contact Google Company" (well, not with these exactly words, but something like that...). However, Google does not have a customer service email, and I was able to contact Google only via this forum. In Brazil, this is what we called the "push game". The problem is not of my company, and that should be solved by a third actor (pushing the problem to another company).
This situation is annoying, because the app are crashed, and frustrating, because the tablet is losing its appeal. If to work properly I have to lost all the functionality (multi window, smart stay, etc), the tablet does not deserve its price. My previously tablet was the Samsung 7.7, that was banned from most markets because of the patent troll that own the rectangle shape, but I change because of the Wi-fi issue of the Samsung 7.7. Now, a issue with Google Search and Newstand. I don't know, but I'm starting to see a pattern here.

I'm with the same problem on my Galaxy Note 10.1, I tried to uninstall and reinstall but the problem does not be solved. Every time i try to open Google Search on my tab it crashes with the message "A pesquisa google parou" (in a direct translation "Google search stopped") and this is really annoying, It is like this since the new Google Search update. I need this fixed, I'm losting functionality with this trouble!
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Kwixfan 12/2/13 8:45 PM
I just spoke to support regarding another problem, my note 8.0 is not charging properly. Anyhow they did confirm that the google search problem is an known issue and supposedly google is working on a fix.
Doesn't help the cause any, though.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Mariusz Bansleben 12/3/13 4:16 AM

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 kasey rahn 12/3/13 8:33 PM

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 sherlock3000 12/3/13 9:25 PM
Not yet.  Only the interim countermeasure of uninstalling updates in the application manager and unchecking the automatic updates box in the play store until either a firmware update or a google fix is issued.

Exception:  if you have a Note 10.1 (NT8013 US wifi), a kies firmware update will fix.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Stephen Silla 12/4/13 2:48 PM
Uninstalling and reinstalling Google Search does not work.  Uninstalling the update does work, until the update is automatically reinstalled and I get the same message; "Unfortunately Google Search has stopped working."

Any fixes?  This has gone on too long for too many people for Samsung and Google not to have fixed it.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Stephen Silla 12/4/13 2:48 PM

My Galaxy Tab 2, 10.2.  Model GT-5113, Android 4.2.2, Build #JDQ39P5113UEUCMH2.

Google Search stopped working.  Read all inputs here and decided to try updating my tablet to see if that worked.  Went to SETTINGS - iABOUT DEVICE - SOFTWARE UPDATE and so far the tablet works and I recovered Google Search.  We'll see how it goes here but I am optimistic that all is well.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Richard464 12/10/13 3:01 PM
Tried that and my Tab indicates that I have the latest updates. Google Search also works on my Tab 2 10.1 but it is the factory installed version. Every time I download an update it stops working and I have to uninstall????

By the way how did you get Android 4.2.2?? I still have 4.1.1!!! Did this download automatically??

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Fausto Nomura 12/11/13 1:41 PM

Here is what fixed it for me. Cleared cache and data for google search and search widget. That alone didn't fixed the issue. So I went in and uninstalled update from google search. That did fixed the problem. Now interesting part. I installed again the update and it is still working OK.

Yeah, Google is still making B cathegory products, so that's something to be expected from them really.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Guenole de Cadoudal 12/14/13 12:16 AM
Hi,

This morning a lot of Google apps are available for update (maps, youtube, calendar, google+, gmail, translate, google play music, hangout and obviously Search and Newstand). I have deactivated auto update for a while now since i have the same same problem as every one here.

Has any one dare applying these updates on a samsung galaxy note 10.1, or another model having the search problem?
Please let us know, i don't want to ruin my tablet and spend endless hours trying to fix it.

Thanks, Merci, Tack, Dancke, Gracia

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Herandro Salgueiro 12/19/13 7:56 AM
Also have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000, updated with the latest firmware (that's what Kies is telling) and running Android 4.1.2, also with the latest updates (update feature says there's no newer one). But if I want to have Google Search working, I have to leave it as it came with the device from factory, because any updates since August/November 2013 will make it crash to a black screen where one can read "Google Search stopped working", with two options, to tap OK or "send report". Tried to update again today, December, 19, 2013, without success (same problem happened again).
Is this a problem with Google Search or some kind of misunderstanding between Samsung and Google?

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Guenole de Cadoudal 12/29/13 2:37 AM
My advise : disable auto update in play store and then boycott all google updates. It solves the problem by keeping only old versions of Google apps and avoiding this annoying regression.
But it is frustrating by not benefitting the new evolutions!

Let's now, for those connected to google and samsung, keep putting the pressure on them.

Happy New year.

Had same problem since getting note 10.1 for xmas. Had to do a factory reset to 4.1.1. Did not update tablet for fear of same thing happening for a week. Decided to risk a full update to system and hey presto tablet is working perfectly internet, google app all running smooth as clockwork no bugs or stopped working messages. So worth I try to see if it works for you.

I solved the problem on my mother's galaxy tab 2 10.1 : an update to android 4.2.2 exists but in France, for example but also in other countries, is not pushed via OTA. You can download the update and upgrade with Odin. Google Search and relative products work now fine. Hope it will work for all of you. Have a good upgrade day :-D

How do you disable updates  ??????
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Guenole de Cadoudal 1/1/14 8:56 AM
@janis

Go to playstore.
Go to MyApps
Select installed on the top left corner
Select google search app in the list
Below the icon on the detail page you should see a check box "allow automatic updating". Make sure it is NOT ticked.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Pierre Bushel 1/4/14 6:07 AM
I just got a Samsung S4 Mini, it updated automatically once, then Google search stopped working.  It was frustrating as hell to say the least.  I couldn't even find how to roll back the update.  Plus it was strange, the basic Google search app was shown as a entry space on the Home page of my phone and as an app in the app collection, but not in the systems setting, applications list.  Well after thinking hard about this for 3 hrs, I just reinstalled (through Play Store...it showed as and "updated" of Google) and then the home page search line and app worked.  Seems that the update to the OS wiped out the basic Google search app but didn't remove the icon or search entry on the home page.  But it was gone from the systems settings applications list. Go figure.  I hope that this doesn't happen with each update of the OS.  How do I turn the automatic update off????

@DancingSocrates Have you tried  uninstalling  updates for Google Search? Go to Settings > More > Applications Manager and find  Google Search. Tap on Uninstall all updates. This will revert the app to its original factory setting.

I am getting the same issue as well as the ongoing search one. Haven't tried to rollback Google+ updates to see if this fixes things. I think it is probably related to the version of the OS we are running, namely 4.1.2. However, I personally can't upgrade yet despite speaking with my mobile service provider and then tech support at Samsung. So come on Google fix this!!

Google needs to determine what change in the software is causing this. Yes it might be a bug in Samsung's 4.1.2 firmwares but if previous versions of search/Google+ did not trigger this Google must be able to work around this.

Google knows OEMs are slow to release firmware updates if they ever do. They've broken search on a high portion of their user base who will never a firmware update. Come on Google, stop being evil and work around this bug.

Please advise.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Sir Elliott 1/26/14 2:04 PM
I have Google search version 3.1.24.941712.arm installed on Samsung Note GT-N8013
running 4.1.2
I have tried everything uninstalling the app and reinstalling multiple times with no success. I have friends with the same device and they have the same poor experience.
Come on, this is the flagship program of Google.  How many more months before this is addressed?
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Daniel Poobalan 1/26/14 4:30 PM
Please do not install updates for Google Search. If you have, uninstall it in the Application Manager of your tablet. Disable auto updates for Google Search in the Play Store. Then wait for the fix until kingdom come.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 TheWebimages 2/1/14 2:30 AM
Got Google Search on my Galaxy Note 10.1 working after Samsung's firmware update. It was done automatically, I mean, I was given a warning that a new firmware upgrade was available,  and asked if I wanted to download and install it. But I think it can be done via Samsung Kies too. After that, I downloaded the update for Google Search and all is working well.
I hope that helped.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Robert Tennent 2/1/14 2:36 AM

I don't remember the download size of the firmware upgrade, but I can tell you it was made directy via wi-fi (I didn't use the PC-Samsung Kies-USB Cable procedure).

Firmware update needed for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for most recent Google Search a Bkcrosbee 2/4/14 12:23 PM
If you're Looking for a Google Search app fix and you have a wifi Galaxy Note tab 2....this worked for me:
Download "Samsung Kies" onto pc or Mac. Make sure you download all updates to Kies once Kies is installed. Once installation is complete, plug your tablet into your pc or mac. (be sure Kies is loaded on your desktop before you plug your tablet into your computer.) Kies should automatically detect if there is firmware available and will prompt you how to download it. Once you've updated your firmware, you should be able to install the latest Google Search app update without crashing problems.
Re: Firmware update needed for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for most recent Google Search a Richard464 2/4/14 6:02 PM
Okay I have the latest update for Kies. Plugged in my GT-P5113 with USB and there are no updates for my tablet? I am currently running Ver. 4.1.1 and I am located in Canada.
The downloads of the "Google Search" update still do not work so I have stopped downloading them. Anyone know when the firmware update to 4.1.2 or 4.2 will be available in Canada? The new firmware will eliminate the problem but why is Google dragging their feet on this????

Maybe I will dump this and get an Apple Air. There is no reason for this delay in the firmware!!!!

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Robert Tennent 2/5/14 3:36 AM
Mate, the fix will apply to galaxy tab 2 as far as I understand. This was the only thread that address this issue and lots of us here have note tablets.
It seems to me they are rolling this out country by country. Stupid I agree, but I think we will all get "our fix".
What country are you in?
Re: Firmware update needed for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for most recent Google Search a Nickdbomb 2/5/14 8:59 AM
To fix problems with Google search and Google+. I followed others advice in this forum. Kies works for updating firmware.  It was recommended to use Kies to update the firmware for 2 Samsung Galaxy devices purchased less than a year ago.

WARNING: Kies DOS NOT work for backup! It will backup but not accurately. Area codes are mixed up and some phone numbers are not saved. On my S4 I had to load the contacts that were backed-up back into my contacts by searching for the name first. The Note 10.1 will only be seen by Kies 2.6 and the S4 will only be seen by Kies 3 so transferring information directly between them using Kies is not possible.

Will someone please post a successful backup procedure and the app that accurately backs up all information.  Thanks

Re: Firmware update needed for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for most recent Google Search a Stephane Bonnell 2/6/14 1:58 PM
Hi,

    Tried in France on GT-P5100. Firmware is already 4.1.2. No update available with Kies...
    I am going to hate Android that force me to change my phone and tablet because Google is not able to program something compatible (Maps is crashing on my Xperia P as Search is crashing on the Galaxy Tab), because constructor are not doing there job by maintaining their products and because operators are not releasing firmware updates !!

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Dalibor Brunári 2/8/14 12:47 PM
Hi please advice me step by step how to turn off google now on sg tab 2. The google is not working, and I am desperate, android version is 4.2.2 also youtube is down on my tab 2,,, thanks
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Guenole de Cadoudal 2/8/14 1:07 PM
@Dalibor, to deactivate google now:
First, deinstall the latest version of google search to come back to the default one.
Then, run any search on google search. On the result list, in the bottom bar on the right there are 3 dots (...). Touch them.
It will open the settings. Look at the top right corner of the settings screen: you will see an on/off slide button. Turn it off.
It will ask if you want to turn off location history ( i said yes just in case ) and say ok. You must have access to the network. When it is completed you have google search withiut any widgets.
Go to apps store and update google search.  

This worked for me on notes 10.1 GT 8000

Good luck and tell us if this solution is applicable to you

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 fitz osbourne 2/9/14 3:00 AM

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Daniel Poobalan 2/9/14 3:47 AM
@fitz osbourne The Play Store memory cache could be full and needs cleaning. Try the following steps:

Tap Play Store-->tap three vertical dots at the top right corner-->Tap Settings--Tap Clear Browsing History.
From the same menu, Tap Content Filtering-->tick all options in it. Exit.
Restart the Tablet
Try downloading and installing apps from the Play Store


Hope it works.
Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 Annabel H 2/9/14 7:31 AM
POSSIBLE SOLUTION (This worked on my Note 8 so hope it works for you too):

GO TO Settings (looks like a wheel icon), Applications Manager, Google Search
UNINSTALL UPDATES AND CLEAR CACHE
Click home button, click APPS Icon, tap WIDGETS, find the Google Search widget and drag it to your homescreen.

Re: Google Search stopped working after recent update on Galaxy Tab 2 juliebrennan 3/15/14 5:42 PM
After trying everything to get google back, ( Samsung note 8.0) this is what I did to "reinstall it" even though it says it is already installed.

I went to GOOGLE PLAY store....searched for google app.  The search brought Google up, but it said it was already installed (which android automatically pre-loads so you cannot uninstall) - OK.  THEN on this page I clicked UNINSTALL....and then OPEN, and all my google search apps (search bar, google blue square app) were all active again.  OH, I just remembered something!  During this process THERE is a box that says to UNDO the latest update, and that did it!

Basically, I just monkeyed around in the google play store, found google, hit uninstall, then clicked UNDO UPDATE, and it all came back.  Sorry this is a big jumbled.
