Search bar voice input now opens copilot on edge for android

Copper Contributor

Hey all,

 

I'm running Edge 119.0.2151.65 on Android 13 (One UI 5.1, Samsung Galaxy s23). 

 

The problem is edge will open copilot if I click the microphone voice input button on the new tab start page or the URL/search bar in any tab. The result is co-pilot opens and starts listening to whatever I say even if I close copilot. It's a horrible user experience. 

 

Copilot is not fast enough to perform quick lookups and searches for things that I regularly use a search engine for. It's a less efficient at performing quick searches and looking up websites or definitions. It's frustrating because I regularly use voice input to search seamlessly. 

 

I switched to edge on all of my devices a few months ago, and I've been really loving it, but this is such a glaring oversight that I think I'm going to switch back to Chrome for now.
