Google introduces Handwrite; adios to virtual QWERTY’s
Google Handwrite lets you write with your fingers on your Smartphone/Tablet’s touchscreen and displays results in the SERP
This company is so damn innovative. Everyday I wake up and open Google.com, there seems to be something new, either in th Chrome Webstore or in drive or an addition of a command in the search pattern. Today is no different. Google handwrite is the new experience one can feel just by enabling the feature on your smartphone or the tablet.
Google handwrite allows you to write on the touchscreen, recognizes what you want and displays results on the Search Engine Results page (SERP). It’s a jump over the traditional tapping of words on your virtual QWERTY.
To enable Google Handwrite, navigate your way to Google.com on your mobile device and find the settings link or button. You will notice that a new header has been included for this feature. When you enable this and save you should be able to find a button that will appear in the bottom-right corner of the page. Hold down and the handwrite space will make open it’s pavement for you. You can ask what you are looking for just by writing. However, it’s recommended not to make your handwriting too unclear. The feature is not currently optimized to recognize due to the beta phase it is in. Google has released a promotional video to showcase Handwrite.
Handwrite currenly works with iOS 5.0 or later devices in case of Apple, Android 2.3 or later phones, and Android 4.0 or later tablets in case of Android. It supports 27 languages currently.
