Maybe it would be useful to take a look into the new official approach

Usage

Add the dependencies to your gradle file:

	dependencies {
    	compile 'com.miguelcatalan:materialsearchview:1.4.0'
	}

Add MaterialSearchView to your layout file along with the Toolbar (Add this block at the bottom of your layout, in order to display it over the rest of the view):

    <!— Must be last for right layering display —>
    <FrameLayout
        android:id="@+id/toolbar_container"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content">

        <android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
            android:id="@+id/toolbar"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="?attr/actionBarSize"
            android:background="@color/theme_primary" />

        <com.miguelcatalan.materialsearchview.MaterialSearchView
            android:id="@+id/search_view"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
    </FrameLayout>

Add the search item into the menu file:

	<item
        android:id="@+id/action_search"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_action_action_search"
        android:orderInCategory="100"
        android:title="@string/abc_search_hint"
        app:showAsAction="always" />

Add define it in the onCreateOptionsMenu:

	@Override
	public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.menu_main, menu);

        MenuItem item = menu.findItem(R.id.action_search);
        searchView.setMenuItem(item);

        return true;
    }

Set the listeners:

	MaterialSearchView searchView = (MaterialSearchView) findViewById(R.id.search_view);
	searchView.setOnQueryTextListener(new MaterialSearchView.OnQueryTextListener() {
            @Override
            public boolean onQueryTextSubmit(String query) {
                //Do some magic
                return false;
            }

            @Override
            public boolean onQueryTextChange(String newText) {
                //Do some magic
                return false;
            }
        });
        
        searchView.setOnSearchViewListener(new MaterialSearchView.SearchViewListener() {
            @Override
            public void onSearchViewShown() {
                //Do some magic
            }

            @Override
            public void onSearchViewClosed() {
                //Do some magic
            }
        });

Use VoiceSearch

Allow/Disable it in the code:

	searchView.setVoiceSearch(true); //or false

Handle the response:

    @Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        if (requestCode == MaterialSearchView.REQUEST_VOICE && resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
            ArrayList<String> matches = data.getStringArrayListExtra(RecognizerIntent.EXTRA_RESULTS);
            if (matches != null && matches.size() > 0) {
                String searchWrd = matches.get(0);
                if (!TextUtils.isEmpty(searchWrd)) {
                    searchView.setQuery(searchWrd, false);
                }
            }

            return;
        }
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    }

Add suggestions

Define them in the resources as a string-array:

    <string-array name="query_suggestions">
        <item>Android</item>
        <item>iOS</item>
        <item>SCALA</item>
        <item>Ruby</item>
        <item>JavaScript</item>
    </string-array>

Add them to the object:

	searchView.setSuggestions(getResources().getStringArray(R.array.query_suggestions));

Style it!

    <style name="MaterialSearchViewStyle">
        <!-- Background for the search bar -->
        <item name="searchBackground">@color/theme_primary</item>

        <!-- Change voice icon -->
        <item name="searchVoiceIcon">@drawable/ic_action_voice_search_inverted</item>

        <!-- Change clear text icon -->
        <item name="searchCloseIcon">@drawable/ic_action_navigation_close_inverted</item>

        <!-- Change up icon -->
        <item name="searchBackIcon">@drawable/ic_action_navigation_arrow_back_inverted</item>
        
        <!-- Change icon for the suggestions -->
        <item name="searchSuggestionIcon">@drawable/ic_suggestion</item>

        <!-- Change background for the suggestions list view -->
        <item name="searchSuggestionBackground">@android:color/white</item>

        <!-- Change text color for edit text. This will also be the color of the cursor -->
        <item name="android:textColor">@color/theme_primary_text_inverted</item>

        <!-- Change hint text color for edit text -->
        <item name="android:textColorHint">@color/theme_secondary_text_inverted</item>

        <!-- Hint for edit text -->
        <item name="android:hint">@string/search_hint</item>
    </style>

Custom cursor

Create the drawable:

    <shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    	<size android:width="2dp" />
    	<solid android:color="@color/theme_primary" />
    </shape>

And add it to the object:

	searchView.setCursorDrawable(R.drawable.custom_cursor);

Using AppBarLayout?

It is a little bit tricky but can be achieved using this:

	<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:id="@+id/container"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <!— Irrelevant stuff —>
    <android.support.v4.view.ViewPager
        android:id="@+id/viewpager"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_below="@+id/appbarlayout"
        app:layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior" />

    <!— Must be last for right layering display —>
    <android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout
        android:id="@+id/appbarlayout"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:background="@color/search_layover_bg">

        <FrameLayout
            android:id="@+id/toolbar_container"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content">

            <android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
                android:id="@+id/toolbar"
                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="?attr/actionBarSize"
                android:background="@color/theme_primary" />

            <com.miguelcatalan.materialsearchview.MaterialSearchView
                android:id="@+id/search_view"
                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:visibility="gone" />
        </FrameLayout>

        <android.support.design.widget.TabLayout
            android:id="@+id/tabs"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:background="@color/theme_primary"
            app:tabGravity="fill"
            app:tabMode="fixed" />

    </android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout>

</RelativeLayout>

Bonus

Close on backpressed:

    @Override
    public void onBackPressed() {
        if (searchView.isSearchOpen()) {
            searchView.closeSearch();
        } else {
            super.onBackPressed();
        }
    }
