 It's not always easy to use the keyboard on your phone or tablet, especially when you're on the go. Instead, try Handwrite (beta) on to write your search terms with your finger rather than typing the words on the keyboard. As you write, your handwritten text converts into words in the search box.

To enable Handwrite, visit on your smartphone or tablet, click 'Settings,' found at the bottom of the page, and then enable Handwrite. This feature is currently available in 27 languages.[image_library_tag 954/61954, border=”0″ align=”right” hspace=”4″vspace=”4″ ,default]

  1. Tap the Handwrite icon in the lower right corner of the screen on your mobile device.
  2. Start writing with your finger the search terms anywhere on the screen.
  3. While you write, your handwritten text converts into typeface in the search box.
  4. You'll see a list of predicted queries below the search box as you write. Tap one of them to search for that prediction, or click the arrow to the right to build your query and keep on writing.
  5. Tap the search icon to search.

The Handwrite feature works best in the native Android browser on Android 2.3+ phones, Android 4.0+ tablets, and iOS 5+ phones and tablets. It's available when you visit in your browser, and not in other search boxes found on your device, like within apps.
