Google Releases Gesture Search for Android

Google has just released Gesture Search, a new and experimental feature for phones running the Google Android 2.0 software or above.

Gesture Search is pretty straightforward: you open it up and then draw letters. Draw a M and you’ll get contacts, bookmarks, and apps that start with M. Draw an o and you’ll get results starting with “Mo,” and so on until you find what you’re looking for. Queries can also be erased by drawing a line left to right, while drawing right to left removes the last letter in the current sequence.

In its announcement, GoogleGoogle highlighted how Gesture Search could be a good option for those who may not be able to use voice search and may find that typing to find queries takes too long. While we don’t expect Google to replace AndroidAndroid typing with gestures, it is a nice Google LabsGoogle Labs experiment that we’re sure a lot of people will enjoy using.
