Hey, I thought we were supposed to have a VOICE button (the little microphone that upon pressing it enables voice input) in the new Beta. Like every other keyboard out there. Am I missing it? What gives?

I am not sure its necessary at this point due to what Google has done with the 2.2 Voice Commands.

To write an email or txt using voice, just long press on the search and speak "Send text to WILL {message text}" You can replace text with email as well. Using voice-to-text this way is even more hands free than opening a text and speaking the message. IMO there is not a need for another button just for the mic when you can do it all with the long-press already.

Of course it's necessary. Plenty of people have Swype without 2.2.
