Google Handwriting Input is a stand-alone keyboard which allows you to handwrite text on your phone or tablet in 100 languages. It supports printed and cursive writing, with or without a stylus. Google Handwriting Input also supports more than a thousand emojis, so that you can express yourself in any Android app.
Note: As of mid 2018, Gboard – the Google Keyboard – allows for both handwriting and keyboard input. Google Handwriting Input is in maintenance mode, and new languages and improved recognisers will be deployed only to Gboard, so we encourage you to visit https://support.google.com/gboard/answer/9108773 to give it a try and let us know if you encounter any problems.
