Google launches Hindi handwriting support for Android, iOS

Handwrite enables you to search by just writing letters with your finger or stylus anywhere on your device's screen.

Google has announced support for Hindi handwriting and ability for Android and iOS devices. As per Google, users would now be able to use the internet in Hindi, irrespective of their handwriting.

Handwrite enables you to search by just writing letters with your finger or stylus anywhere on your device’s screen-there’s no keyboard that covers half of the screen and no need for typing.

Here’s how you can start scribbling away online using Google’s input tools in Hindi:

Getting started is easy: go to www.google.co.in in your mobile browser, tap on “Settings” at the bottom of the screen, go to Search Settings and enable “Handwrite.” Change language in Google products to Hindi. Also add “Hindi” as a Language of Search Results. Note that after you’ve saved the setting, you may need to refresh the homepage to see the feature.

On tablets, the Search settings are available as an option behind the gear icon.

Once the feature is enabled, tap the Handwrite icon on the bottom right corner of your screen to activate Handwrite mode. Write a few letters and you’ll see autocomplete options appear below the search box. If one of the options is what you’re looking for, just tap it to search.

For longer queries, you can continue writing a string of characters and then use the arrows next to the autocompletions to move the right one into the search box. Remember, you can write anywhere on the screen.

With the feature enabled, you can still use the keyboard at any time by tapping on the search box. Handwrite is experimental, and works better in some browsers than others-on Android, it works best in Chrome. Handwrite is enabled for Android 2.3+ phones, Android 4.0+ tablets and for iOS5+ devices – in over 30 international languages.
