Siri will now give you search results from Google instead of Bing

The next time you ask Siri a question, Apple’s AI will finally offer up search results to help you find an answer using the big G, like the rest of the civilized world.

Apple is replacing Microsoft’s Bing as the default search platform for Siri, Search inside iOS, and Spotlight on Macs in favor of Google, according to Tech Crunch.

The iPhone engineers said that the switch is being made in order to create a more “consistent web search experience” for its users, since Google is currently the default search engine on its Safari browser thanks to a reported $3 billion annual deal between the two companies.  A great deal, though!

Google doesn’t get the whole Apple search pie, however. Bing will still offer up image search results for queries through Siri. So, the company has not ended the deal with Bing.

Apple used to have Bing for Siri’s search functionality since iOS 7 in 2013. It was a major coup for Microsoft at the time — Apple and Google had also tussled over the YouTube app the year before — but now, the search tides have shifted back in Google’s favor. As the reports say, The deal between Apple and Google might have played a part in the shift for Siri, but we can’t be sure without knowing its terms and conditions.

News of the migration to Google comes the same day the latest version of macOS, High Sierra, was released to the public, so users upgrading to the new OS will find their new Spotlight search is now powered by Google. iOS device owners should have the update, too — so ask Siri to search for something, and see how Google answers your query.
