Google has launched a new handwriting keyboard for Android called the “Google Handwriting Input”. It will work on all the version of Android post the Ice Cream Sandwich and can be downloaded from the Play Store.The essence of this keyboard is that you can handwrite messages and the keyboard will convert it to text. The keyboard supports 82 languages, including Hindi. While keyboards support handwritten messages are not something new, it is a boon for languages which are complicated to be typed out in a keyboard.

Google Handwriting Input is just like any keyboard and all you need to do is head to the Play Store, download the application, set it as default and you will be ready to go. The Handwriting application registers both stylus and fingers.

We were surprised how the keyboard made sense of our haywire handwriting, the keyboard also recognizes numbers and special characters rather swiftly and accurately.
