If your native language is something other than English, you might have experienced some difficulty searching Google with a typical keyboard. As it turns out a lot of people have this issue and Google has done something about it!
For 35 Language, Google has added keyboard functionality to search. This comes directly from their virtual keyboard api they released last year on code.google.com. You can use one of the links below to try it out, or just visit a supporting language. In the screenshot below you’ll see how the Russian Google search has a Russian virtual keyboard available right next to the поиск (search) button.
Of course Manish Bhargava, Product Manager at Google, compares it to having a broken English keyboard but then Google fails to add this simple feature to the English Google.com for people who might actually have broken keyboards… But we won’t give them too hard of a time about that. Here’s the 35 languages the virtual keyboard is available in!
