Search the Web Through Handwriting with Google Handwrite

Share

Cross-posted from my other blog, Free Technology for Teachers.

This afternoon Google released a new way to search on your Android tablet and Android phone. Now instead of typing your query into the Google Search box, you can just handwrite a word or phrase to search. See it in action in the video below.

For now Handwrite for Google mobile only works on Android tablets running 4.0+ and Android phones running on 2.3+.

Handwrite could be useful for students who are frustrated by trying to type search phrases on a touchscreen device.
