Google updates Handwrite to 1.0 with better recognition
Google has updated its Handwrite input technology to v1.0, officially bringing it out of beta. The option lets users draw characters at the mobile version of google.com to perform searches; while mostly just a perk in countries with Western alphabets, it can simplify searches in languages like Chinese or Japanese. The v1.0 update is said to improve recognition quality, in part through new interpretation features.
