Google search results on desktop and mobile have been updated to show more than just the meaning of a word when someone seeks a definition. Saying "define [insert word]" will now also show sample sentences and synonyms. Google also charts a word's frequency of usage throughout history, shows its language origin, and shows the translation intoother languages. The results are not available globally but should be accessible when searching English words from Google.com or triggering the "define" command through Google Now devices in the U.S. A guaranteed victory in the spelling bee is sadly not included in this update.
