A system and method of an interactive animated key on a computing device that changes its content depending on input from the user is disclosed. The key is created with four dots each with a different radius that represent the search function key, with animations for various stages of the search. Upon the user pressing that key to start search, the key changes to 4 dots that are the same shape and located next to each other. While the user speaks, the animation represents a wavelet and the dots expand and collapse. Once the user is done with the input, the icon becomes the 4 dots that start spinning to represent that there is a search query in progress. Finally, when the query is returned, the key becomes green to show that the input has been processed. The animated key makes the search more interactive and informative for the user.
