WASHINGTON – Scrabble players, rejoice.
Google has expanded its word definition box.
When users type in a word and hit “enter,” they’re presented with the definition, as well as synonyms, antonyms and sample sentences.
The new feature also provides word origins and a timeline showing how the word’s popularity waxes and wanes.
The updated Google search is active on desktops and Google’s mobile app.
Here’s a video showing how the new feature works, using Google Voice.
