Google has overhauled the Web definitions interface and results by adding more details to the definitions queries. The new options included in the interface include:

  • Expandable box that contains additional symptoms
  • Origins of the word translation
  • Ways to use word in a sentence
  • Use of the word over time, and more

When a word is translated within, the future definition searches will provide translation in the same language.

On the addition, Google said:

"You may be familiar with using Google to find definitions, like [define fortuitous]. We’ve recently updated this feature on on desktop and mobile to give you more information about these words beyond just their definition. Now you’ll also see sample sentences that highlight how the word is used, as well as synonyms. If you tap the microphone on your Google Search app, you’ll hear answers spoken back when you ask questions like “What’s the definition of fortuitous?” and “What are synonyms for fortuitous?”
