Google has officially introduced 'Handwrite' a new way to search in mobile and tablet with a touch-screen. The new feature enables you to write your search term with your finger instead of typing it into the search field.
The best part is that you can type anywhere on the screen without having to strain your eyes on a keyboard eating away half your screen.
For Handwrite to work, you're required to enable the feature by going to Google.com on your mobile or tablet. Tap 'Settings' at the bottom of the screen and enable Handwrite. You might want to refresh the page for the new settings to take effect.
Once enabled, you'll see a bar at the bottom displaying 4 icons. Tapping the 'g' button will allow you to type in your own handwriting. There's also a space bar button and a delete button. Once you start typing, Google reveals the autocomplete searches indicated by an arrows next to them.
Handwrite is currently available in 27 different languages, and also Google shared a promotional video that previews this new functionality.
