Pixel Tablet is expected to add stylus support, handwriting input text

Mishaal Rahman, a Twitter blogger who focuses on discovering new features of the Android system, has recently made new discoveries. He published a long article on the X platform (Twitter), saying that the Pixel Tablet has added support for the USI 2.0 (an open standard released by the Universal Stylus Alliance in March 2022) stylus. After connecting the stylus to the Pixel Tablet, users can see two new options: the default note-taking app, and writing in the text box.

Mishaal Rahman claims that the screenshots in his article (below) came from an “informant” who owns a Pixel Tablet and a USI 2.0 stylus, but the informant said that the stylus functionality of the Gboard input method is temporarily unavailable, which may be related to Device compatibility is still not perfect.

After clicking “Write in Text Box”, you can open the stylus settings of the Gboard input method, and the user can change the handwriting speed and stroke width. At the same time, the user can click “Try it” to open the text box to display and experience the gestures of the stylus, including writing, deleting, selecting, entering, conjunctions and line breaks.

According to previous reports, Mishaal Rahman discovered in June this year that the native Android 14 Beta 3 operating system is expected to add more functional support for the stylus.

In the screenshot posted by @MishaalRahman, the code mentions the “primary”, “secondary”, “tertiary” and “tail” buttons of the stylus, and the description of the “tail” button also specifically emphasizes that “this button does not usually correspond to the eraser function”. When he sent the “tail” keycode of the stylus, Android 14 Beta 3 will display a toast message and prompt “Set default notes in the ‘Settings App'”. @MishaalRahman believes that this “tail” button will launch the default note-taking application.
