Google Handwrite Beta goes live

Google Handwrite Beta goes live

If you’re not into voice searching and you’re too lazy to press each keys of the word you’re searching for, then Google Handwrite beta may help ease some of your searching burdens.

The search giant has recently released a new fancy way of doing a search using your touch device via Google Handwrite. Here’s a sample video clip of how it works.

The great thing about this is that it doesn’t require any complicated steps for you to get started and it also works for your iDevice given that it’s running on iOS 5 and above. Here’s how to enable this feature.


1. Open up a browser (any browser).
2. Go to and find Settings below the page.

3. Viola! You can now do a Google Search using your handwriting.

We think that this is a better alternative for type-searching than voice search as sometimes it doesn’t register the words a user uttered correctly. And since this is just in beta version, we can still expect some more improvement in the future releases.
