Look up anything using Smart Lookup in Office 2016

There is a new feature included in the Office 2016 apps called Smart Lookup. (This feature is similar to the one you'll find in Microsoft Edge when you ask Cortana for assistance in the web browser).

Smart Lookup allows users to research specific content using the web information through the Insights functionality.

If you need to know the definition of a word, or you need to research a place or a person, or you simply want to know more about something specific. Instead of using the web browser and leaving the document, simply select and right-click the text you want to research, and select Smart Lookup.

Word opens a new Insights panel to the right of the screen and displays two tabs – Explore and Define.

Explore provides options to explore the web for the contents that deal with the selected word.

Define provides the dictionary definition of the word including phonetics and pronunciation of the word

Not only does Smart lookup add to user’s confidence but also proves itself as a wonderful language learning tool for Students and learners.

Here is an example of what you will see when you Smart Lookup “Edge”:
