How to close the virtual keyboard

One of the coolest things you can do while playing Gear VR is spend some time on the internet. This is also entirely possible with the Samsung web app. This means you can watch 360-degree videos or check out the latest SNL clip to enjoy. However, some users have reported an issue where they can open the Samsung Internet virtual keyboard but cannot close it or access voice search. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to this problem!

What’s happening

The problem that arises is quite simple. Although you can open and search using the virtual keyboard in Samsung Internetyou cannot access voice search. This is an immediately frustrating problem, as voice search is much easier to use than the virtual keyboard. However, this is not the biggest problem. No, the biggest problem is that once you’ve entered a query, you can’t close the keyboard and see the search results. You can hit the close button dozens of times, but the keyboard will stay exactly where it is.
