Google introduced a whole new way of searching in mobile devices!Posted by on July 27, 2012 10:04 AM
Google has added a scientific calculator to its search engine and the moment you type in the word ‘calculator’, it appears on the search screen. The calculator also pops up when you type in a math problem and automatically provides the solution.
The scientific calculator has 34 buttons and can handle quite a few things – right from simple calculations like addition and subtraction to trigonometry and more. It can calculate sines, cosines, square roots and tangents, plus there are dedicated buttons for Pi and Euler’s number. Moreover, this new feature is also available in mobile version. So you can use it instead of the traditional calculator available on your handset.
Google has also introduced a whole new way of searching – Handwrite for search on mobile phones and tablets. As per the new feature, smartphone and tablet users can write search terms (just letters) with their fingers anywhere on the device’s screen and they will be presented with search results. This means end to bringing out the keyboard and pecking on the letters to type!
Google explained how it’s done- “Go to Google.com in your mobile browser, tap on “Settings” at the bottom of the screen and enable “Handwrite.” Note that after you've saved the setting, you may need to refresh the homepage to see the feature. On tablets, the Search settings are available as an option behind the gear icon. Once the feature is enabled, tap the Handwrite icon on the bottom right corner of your screen to activate the writing surface.”
