Google Dictionary Cards now Contain a Search Box

Google dictionary cards now sport a new and useful feature, a search box, which gives users the ability to enter new queries without conducting a new search…

Google just appended a search box to its dictionary cards in what appears a permanent change. Although some users have previously reported seeing the feature, it seems like it is now rolled out completely for all definition queries, Search Engine Journal reports.

Google Dictionary Cards now Includes a Useful Search Box

As pictured in the screenshot below, a search for “define locrian mode,” returns not only the definition and pronunciation, complete with a search box right under the “Dictionary” heading:

Conducting new searches within the dictionary cards box yields the same results, including “ionian mode,” “dorian mode,” “phrygian mode,” “lydian mode,” mixolydian mode,” and “aeolian mode.” It also works with just about any other definition query. Additionally, it also appears on desktop searches:

And, because Google just rolled out an improved feed for its flagship app, it also contains a home button at the top right of the screen. That button appears at the bottom left of the screen in the Google app, replacing the previous feed button. (The Upcoming tab and Recent tab remain the same.)

Although this is a handy shortcut, it nevertheless is a duplication of resources, cluttering mobile screens with more than one search box.
