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.
Here's how to try it out:
Step 1: Enable the feature
Turn the feature on or off in your search settings. Touch Settings at the bottom of the Google homepage or a search results page, or visit google.com/preferences.
Go to the Handwrite section, select Enable to turn on the feature, and then touch Save.
Note: You might need to refresh the homepage to see the feature.
Step 2: Use it to search
Tap the Handwrite icon in the lower right corner of the screen on your mobile device.
Use your finger to start writing your search terms anywhere on the screen.
While you write, your handwritten text converts into typeface in the search box. If you need to delete a letter, tap the backspace icon . Press and hold the backspace icon to delete more than one letter at a time. Click X in the search box to start over again.
You'll see a list of predicted queries below the search box as you write. Tap one of them to search for that prediction, or click the arrow to the right to build your query and keep on writing.
Tap the search icon to search.
