I know what you’re thinking: “Google had a dictionary outside of Google Search?” And yes, they did. But very few people used it. So, in line with other recent fat trimming, Google has given the dedicated dictionary page the axe and has rolled over dictionary functionality into Google Search. I know, search was already the go-to source for definition look-ups for many of you. And even now, searching for a single word delivers the entries in numerous online dictionaries, as seen above. But now, at the very top of the list, you’ll find the word’s pronunciation and brief definition.
This change is not unexpected, rather, inevitable. But as of right now, hitting the Google Dictionary page will redirect you to search.
