Say hello to Handwrite in Hindi! Google has finally announced that it is offering beta support for handwriting in Hindi and the ability to switch to a native Hindi experience on Android for millions of its users in India.
Hindi goodness is here!
To put it simply, with this newfound ability, users can make Google searches by just writing letters with their finger or stylus anywhere on their device’s screen. To begin, go to www.google.co.in on your mobile browser, tap on “Settings” at the bottom of the screen, go to Search Settings and enable “Handwrite.” Users can then proceed to changing the language in Google products to Hindi. Alternatively, they can add “Hindi” as the Language of Search Results. Once they’ve saved the setting, users may have to refresh the homepage to see the feature. Those looking to enable handwrite in Hindi on their tablets must note that the Search settings can be found behind the gear icon. Once the feature is active, users will have to tap the Handwrite icon visible at the bottom right corner of their screen to activate it. Once done, users can write anywhere on the screen.
It also possible now for users to translate Hindi with Google Translate app for Mobile. All they have to do is download the Google Translate app from the Play store and change the language from the dropdown settings, and then just enter the text they want to translate. Here, users can enter Hindi text using handwriting too.
