Dunno why it breaks it, but if you have root and want an alternative, google now for 3rd party launchers xposed module works great for me and it doesn't break any sound recording.

Yeah, there's several things I can do as an alternative. Right now I'm just using a different voice recorder; might set up a Tasker profile later.

It's not that big of a deal, really. It's just annoying/surprising/disappointing that such a highly sought-after and anticipated feature breaks some of the core functionality on a high-end, popular, flagship device. It's even worse if the issue exists on all Samsung (Touchwiz) devices, which I'm trying to determine. Google dropped the ball on this one...

There's a minor update to Google Search rolling out. I haven't been able to find a changelog anywhere yet, but I just checked it out, and unfortunately it still breaks Voice Recorder. *sigh*
