Microsoft is starting to roll out new changes to Windows Ink, which will let users write anywhere they can type in Windows 11.

After reviewing the changes for months, the handwriting-to-text conversion now works inside search boxes and other elements of Windows 11, where users would normally type their input, as reported by The Verge.

The company is rolling out the new feature with the ‘KB5031455’ non-security update as a preview to Windows 11 users.

Those who have a Surface with a stylus or any other Windows tablet that supports Windows Ink will be able to access this new feature if they go into Settings and start writing into a search box, or in other text edit fields in Windows 11.

Initially, Microsoft is only enabling this feature for English users in the US, with support for additional languages coming soon, the report said.

In this update, Microsoft has also upgraded the handwriting recognition technology to make it more accurate, and there are gestures to erase, select, join, and split words.
