Google Chrome for Android offers word definitions with one tap

26 June 2020 0

Google Chrome for Android is packed with various features that improve the whole browsing experience, especially while reading articles online. It is now receiving a new functionality aimed at the reading aspect. Chrome on Android is now said to be capable of offering one-tap definition results for words.

This feature simply lets users check definitions of words by simply tapping on them. When triggered with a tap, there is a slight waiting period and then a small pop-up appears at the bottom of the screen. It mentions the word followed by its type (verb, noun, adjective, etc) and the definition. It will be helpful in situations when a user comes to a word that he does not know about.

The pop-up can also be pulled up to see detailed information that is pulled from Google's knowledge graph. It is exactly similar to what you get when performing a Google search for any word's definition. There is even a quick shortcut for checking the pronunciation of the word.

It is worth noting that the new functionality works only if you tap on the word. If you will tap and hold on the word, then you will get the usual share of options like web search, translate, and search Wikipedia. Additionally, the one-tap definition feature is currently in the rollout stage for Android users. This means it will take some time before all the user receives it and if you are an iOS user, there are currently on words on the release.
