I assumed everyone noticed that Google search started working again in the US not too long ago? Amen!

I don't think that's a Google "wrinkle" - I've seen that happen (ever since I started using Waze a year ago) where if I don't wait for the Waze selected default search engine (whether its own search or Bing's) to finish I don't get any results for any of the other searches... sometimes. It wasn't a big enough issue for me to investigate further, I just wait the extra 3 seconds before switching searches.

Google search now appears to be working in the UK - with a slight wrinkle!

If I search for something and wait until the Bing listings appear, I can then select the Google button from the bottom and see Google listings. If I hit enter on the search and then select the Google button whilst the client is still searching, I won't get any Google results - although I will still get Bing results.

fantastic news! thanks for letting us know :) it makes sense that they'd test it in Israel first before rolling it out to a wider audience. i don't see it, yet, here in the USA, but this is heartening! :D


Yeah nothing here in the USA, but we can hope based on these other comments

Yep - just checked again to make sure, and one of the search options is definitely labeled with a nice big Google-style 'G'. No 'B'-for-Bing was visible either - so either good things are happening, or else maybe the problem never existed here. (I don't recall if I checked - this all started while I was in the States to attend my father's funeral, and I was not exactly at my swiftest at the time!)

Looks like it's back, at least here in Israel. Is Google back for everyone now?
