  • Google Handwrite is a product launched in 2012 and it allows users to write search terms via longhand input via their touchscreens. This solution came with some problems last year, that included the lack of recognition quality for languages and intricate symbols. This automatically meant that users in Japan and China had issues. And now we get an update!

    The latest update to Google Handwrite solves all the problems mentioned before and fixes all the issues. Another problem of the original app was the lack of screen estate to write on, especially for handsets, since tablets have bigger screens. Google also solved this issue by allowing Handwrite to recognize even letters that overlap. So, you can now write letters on top of previously written letters. How cool is that?

    On the recognition area, Google added a manual correction box, allowing users to select the correct letter or number when their handwriting is misinterpreted. This is done via a drop-down menu. Google also added multi-character support, which comes in handy if you write in Chinese, since you can write multiple characters at once. In order to enable Google Handwrite you need to access Google.com on your smartphone or tablet, go to settings, select “Enable” handwrite and save the settings.
