Google Handwriting Input Review

All the authors that work on this project are required to follow our guidelines. To make the most out of the app testing process, our authors launch it on various smartphones and tablets with not only the latest OS', but also the previous ones.

Google is a company well known for broadening our horizons, especially when it comes to how we can use technology. Although Google Handwriting Input is a small step forward in the sphere of text recognition and typing, it has the potential to make the mobile activities of billions of users more convenient. After installed, users can use their fingers or a stylus to write words and emoji. There are many cases where voice-to-text recognition fails and QWERTY typing is not practical, so a third option is just what is needed. Furthermore, many users find playing with recognition software and doodling their own emoji.

Functionality 7/10

Google Handwriting Input does not offer a long list of features, but makes up for it in their efficiency. Here is what the app can be used for: Cursive or printed writing Emoji drawing Recognition in 87 languages Recognition with default software or Google Cloud Customization between light and dark themes Quick language installation and switching Auto-selection of difficult word- and letter-combinations

Design 5/10

Google Handwriting Input has a simple design and interface. Due to the limited number of options and the easily recognizable icons, users should have no trouble finding and selecting the option they need. When writing long words, the writing pad allows for writing in two lines, landscape mode, and partial entries. Writing delay is also easily modified.

Usability 9/10

As it is with all language and text-recognition services, some words may get jumbled or incorrectly recognized, but the app is generally effective in reading coherent handwriting. Bugs and technical issues are very rare.

Cross-platform use 5/10

Google Handwriting input is only available on Android devices running version 4.0.3 and higher.

In-app purchases

Google Handwriting Input is free to use, and does not feature any potential purchases.


While it’s not a groundbreaking revelation, Google Handwriting Input is a great solution for those who want to write the traditional way, like to draw emoji, or communicate in a language that makes it hard to write with QWERTY keys. It is also appealing to those who find letters on traditional mobile keyboards too small for communication. Like most Google products, this application runs smoothly and effectively, setting the bar for its competitors.



Google Handwriting Input offers a convenient and effective alternative to Qwerty and voice typing.

Pros : Support for 87 languages;
Recognition of cursive and print text enter;
Emoji by drawing them yourself;
No stylus required;
Absolutely free.

Cons : Lack of multiplatform support;
