Re: YouTube Search Keyboard Missing

Mine is missing as well and my remote does not have a voice record button so I am unable to search anything.

Re: YouTube Search Keyboard Missing

Hi @Adjudic8r and @Chau,

Thanks for posting in the Roku Community!

We appreciate the efforts in letting us know about the issue you're running into regarding the missing Youtube search keyboard. We recommend doing the following steps to resolve the issue:

  1. Remove the YouTube channel from your channel list.
  2. Restart your Roku device from Settings > System > System Restart.
  3. Install the channel back.
  4. Check if the search keyboard has appeared on the YouTube channel.

If the issue persists, it may be best to contact the channel provider's support directly to inquire further and address the issue. Most channels on the Roku platform are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.

All the best,

Takashi O.
