Google has added a new feature to Google.com that now allows smartphone and tablet users to write web searches directly on to the screen of their devices. Check out the video below to see the new Google Handwrite feature in action.
To enable the new feature simply touch “Settings” at the bottom of the Google.com homepage, search results page, or visit google.com/preferences. Then goto the hand wrote section and enable the feature to start writing web searches with your finger.
“It’s not always easy to use the keyboard on your phone or tablet, especially when you’re on the go. Instead, try Handwrite (beta) on Google.com to write your search terms with your finger rather than typing the words on the keyboard. As you write, your handwritten text converts into words in the search box.”
The Google Handwrite feature has been designed for use with either Android 2.3+ smartphones, Android 4.0+ tablets, and iOS 5+ iPhones and iPads, and is available when you visit Google.com in your devices browser, but not in other search entry boxes on your device, such as within apps.
