    Instead of the regular magnifying glass, I somehow held down on the screen and got this while browsing through Alien Blue (reddit app). I wonder if they are planning on including whole word selection?

    Whew!...now I feel better.

    I thought I was the only one who had no clue as to the meaning of the post.

    Selecting an entire word while utilizing the magnifying glass for the purposes of replacing the word instead of simply moving the cursor.

    I mean in retrospect its kind of vague, but didnt think it required a PhD to figure out.

    I thought that exists now. Often when I try to select something I can select a whole word. I think sometimes that might require double-tapping rather than tap-and-hold.

    This feature (with the rectangular magnifying glass) is done by doing a double-tap and hold.

    Or indeed just a long hold, release, then choosing Select and then moving the selection range.

    These are old features as far as i know...
