Google has released a new standalone app which can replace your current keyboard and will let you write on the screen instead of typing on it. The new input method works in Android smartphones as well as in Android tablets.

The newly launched Google input method supports more than 82 languages in 20 distinct scripts. The good thing is that it recognizes various writing styles as well as cursive writing. Users can use the input method with styles or they can either use fingers. Another fun feature is the addition of Emojis which users can draw directly.

The handwriting to text feature has been available from early 2012 when it was limited to Google search and worked with an Internet connection. But Google has finally been able to integrate various languages and the new Google Handwriting app can work with or without an Internet connection. The new Google Input Method is now available for download and works only with devices running on Android 4.0.3 or above.
