  • Google’s search method for smartphones and tablets has evolved yet again, with the recent introduction of the Handwrite feature. As the name says, this function allows you to write using your fingers straight on the Google search screen, as shown in the demo video below.

    Google officially rolled out the beta version of the software, allowing the users to write their search terms using the finger instead of typing in the search field. Just like in regular Google Search, it’s enough to only write part of the phrase and then pick your ideal search terms from a list of common searches. For example writing “pizza D” on the screen will most likely give you “pizza delivery” as one of the results, which is what you were looking for actually.

    In order to access this feature, all you need to do is visit google.com. on your device, click the Settings button at the bottom of the page and enable handwrite. After that’s enabled you just click the Handwrite button that appears near the bottom of the screen and you can now write your search term with your finger. Handwrite is now available in 27 different languages and Google shared a promo video that previews its functionality, as shown below:
