Apple is making the switch from Bing to Google for Siri’s default search provider. And it’s also doing the same on iOS Search and Spotlight for Mac.

The change means, if you now ask Siri a question for which she needs to visit the web, the results you get will be from Google, not Bing.

With this, Apple is hoping to make searches more consistent across all its devices. While talking to TechCrunch, Apple said:

“Switching to Google as the web search provider for Siri, Search within iOS and Spotlight on Mac will allow these services to have a consistent web search experience with the default in Safari. We have strong relationships with Google and Microsoft and remain committed to delivering the best user experience possible.”

The new change rolls out globally today.
