    Hey all...

    As of a few weeks ago, Google Search (from the Google Search widget) has very occasionally stopped working for me. It accepts a search term and looks like it's running, but just sits there without a response.

    Once this happens, Google Search doesn't work at all until I reboot the phone.

    Has anyone seen this happen before? This is new behavior for me.

    I don't use that on my phone, sorry.

    Incidentally, a similar thing happened to me a couple of times these last two days. Both times I blamed it on the poor internet coverage in my area. But I didn't have to reboot the phone because it worked ok a few minutes later, and I assumed it was because I had moved to an area with better signal.

    If I kill the Google Search process and then search again, it also works, so I was inaccurate there. But it looks like Google Search is sometimes getting "stuck" on my phone for some reason.

    This happens even in my home with a good wifi signal and when all other wifi devices are connecting without issues. Nothing seems to be wrong with the network connection itself, because other apps on the phone are able to connect as well.

    Has the app itself been recently updated? Or have related Google apps been updated? Have you tried uninstalling the widget & reinstalling it?

    You can also try deleting google search's data and cache.

    I don't know if it's been recently updated - I found the version, but not the date installed. I could look it up and check later, though.

    I just deleted the cache and data to see if that helps at all, thanks!

    I'll report back if it keeps doing this.
