Google adds handwriting to mobile search
Cleverly titled Google Handwrite, the feature allows users to write search terms onto Google's homepage using their fingers.
Google software engineer Rui Ueyama said: "We designed Handwrite to complement rather than replace typing; with the feature enabled, you can still use the keyboard at any time by tapping on the search box."
The feature is available in 27 languages and works on Apple devices running IOS 5 and higher, smartphones running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and higher, and tablets running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and higher.
To get the feature up and running in your mobile browser, tap on Settings at the bottom of the screen and enableHandwrite.
It's still in beta, so to avoid mistakes, Google recommends writing search queries in block capitals.
