Would it be possible for an entry to be installed on the menu that shows up when I highlight a word, so that I can look up the word on a dictionary, for example from an installed app such as Merriam-Webster dictionary. The app could show the definition inside a bubble.

If course, the installed app would have to support this, and install the behavior onto the operating system UI.

How can I achieve the behavior I'm looking for?


  • This dictionary adds an entry in the context menu to directly search a word when highlighted. play.google.com/store/apps/… – Firelord Feb 22 '19 at 18:25

    There are many as you can see here. Last one on the list I used for a while and is good. But none of them can let you select a dictionary of your choice - they have their own inbuilt dictionary – beeshyams Feb 23 '19 at 10:03
