Internet search giant Google is pushing its mobile search capabilities to new heights this week.
As announced by the company on the Official Google Blog, there’s a new way for you to interact with Google: Handwrite for web search on mobile phones and tablets.
Say you’re standing on a busy street corner, in a bumpy taxi ride, talking with a friend, or sitting on the couch with your tablet. 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.
To get started, Google says, simply go to Google.com in your mobile browser, tap on “Settings” at the bottom of the screen and enable “Handwrite.” Refresh the homepage and then the feature is all yours to enjoy.
Handwrite has, for the time being, been enabled for iOS5+ devices, Android 2.3+ phones and Android 4.0+ tablets, with support offered in 27 languages.
