Washington: Oxford dictionary has added words "Ride-share" and "unboxing" in the new list.

"Ride-share" has been defined as to "participate in an arrangement in which a passenger travels in a private vehicle driven by its owner, for free or for a fee, especially as arranged by means of a website or app," PC World reported.

Other additions included bioprinting, defined as as "the use of 3D printing technology with materials that incorporate viable living cells, e.g. to produce tissue for reconstructive surgery."

And unboxing, a favorite past time for Apple enthusiasts especially: "An act or instance of removing a newly purchased product from its packaging and examining its features, typically when filmed and shared on a social media site."

Oxford also added vishing, which is like phishing, but using phone calls or voice messages instead of emails to trick people in revealing sensitive information.
