    New Lumia Phones unable to change or set Google as default Search engine

    Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8 or 8.1 have an option for users to change the default search engine in the address bar, but there have always been a Bing Search button. Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 are unable to change their default search engine to Google anymore. Apple allows the users to change their preference for search engine from Google to Yahoo to Bing, but Microsoft is the only smartphone OS maker which is not allowing its users to use other search engines or services.

    is their any workaround for the same?

    Re: New Lumia Phones unable to change or set Google as default Search engine

    Even on Android the Nexus Devices are able to change their search engines from Ask to Bing to Yahoo to Chrome. If we talk about Google, it has its own search engine but Apple doesn't so it lets it users change as per their preference. Microsoft have its own search engine and so doesn't allow it.

    Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 users can still use the Google search by visiting Google.com on their Internet Explorer. On the other hand OEMs with Windows 8.1 are shipping their products with Bing search out of the box as they don't have any second option.
