Google has created a new mobile search input feature that allows users to perform handwriting operations on touchscreen devices.
The well-designed new feature, creatively termed as Google Handwrite, lets users manually handwrite search inquiries on Google’s homepage by simply writing the characters anywhere on their device’s touchscreen using their own fingers. Note: This feature is currently on its beta stage.
Rui Ueyama, software engineer at Google, posted in a blog yesterday, “Handwrite enables you to search by just writing letters with your finger most anywhere on your device’s screen – there’s no keyboard that covers half of the screen and no need for hunt-and-peck typing.”
