Google’s Handwriting Input app is one of the most interesting applications developed by the tech giant. It allows users to write on the screens by hand and then it turns it into typed text. Until now, the app was only available for smartphones and tablets. As of now, the app is also available for download on Android Wear 2.0 devices. It was already present on LG’s Watch Sport and Watch Style smartwatches, but other Android Wear 2.0 didn’t have access to the app. Thankfully, Google now made it available for everyone who uses Android Wear 2.0 gadgets.
Especially in the case of smartwatches, typing can be a real ordeal. The largest watch faces are still quite small when it comes to typing. This is why misspelling is a constant problem. What is the purpose of having a terrific smartwatch running on Android Wear 2.0 if you can’t use it for texting and making notes? With the Google Handwriting Input app, things get a lot easier. Users only need to form the letters by drawing them on the screen and the app will recognize them and turn them into typed text. That is if the user doesn’t have a really lousy handwriting the algorithm can’t recognize.
The app, as you probably expected it, is available for free. Android Wear 2.0 users can download it to their smartwatches from Google’s Play Store. Those who thought that their Android Wear 2.0 gadget can’t become even more useful were wrong. Google is constantly working on delivering more interesting and useful apps both to its basic Android users and to Android Wear fans. Of course, they do it mainly in order to keep their customers, but we must admit, their attention to the user’s needs is quite impressive. Google is always working on making our lives easier. Sometimes it manages to deliver truly amazing devices and apps, sometimes it doesn’t. So far, the number of pros is still larger than the one of the cons. We expect the company to deliver more great apps both to Android and to Android Wear devices soon.
