There are more ways to google what you are looking for than speaking your queries, getting results before you finish typing and searching by image. They announced yesterday that Handwrite will now allow you to (good guess) write your search query on your handheld device. The main advantage is that you don’t lose half of your screen to a hit-and-miss keyboard.
Yes, the search box is small. Yes, you can’t handwrite that many words onto a small space. Yes, shorter generic queries are the most expensive and yes, this is will keep those Google dollars rolling in.
If you want to give it a go, hit “Settings” at the bottom of the screen of your mobile or behind the gear icon on your tablet, enable “Handwrite” and refresh the page. You’ll now see the Handwrite icon on the bottom right corner, which will activate the writing surface. The feature is available on iOS5+ devices, Android 2.3+ phones and Android 4.0+ tablets. As was to be expected, it works best in Chrome on Android devices.
