Google is by far the most popular search engine across all platforms including iOS and macOS. However, other competitors like Yahoo, Bing have immensely improved in recent times. What if you want to change default search engine in Google Chrome on your iPhone just to experiment with other search engines?
Google Chrome allows you to easily set up default search engine on your iOS device. Apart from Google, there are currently four other search engines like Ask, AOL, Yahoo, and Bing which you can switch to in the web browser. Let’s check out how it’s done!
How to Change Default Search Engine in Google Chrome on iPhone and iPad
Step #1. Launch Google Chrome on your iOS device.
Step #2. Next, you need to tap on the menu button (looks like three dots placed vertically.)
Step #3. Now, you have to select Settings in the menu.
Step #4. Tap on Search Engine.
Step #5. Next up, you have five options to choose from:
- Google (It’s selected by default)
You can select any of the available options. In this test, I’m going to select Yahoo as my default search engine.
Step #6. Finally, make sure to tap on Done at the top right corner to confirm the change.
That’s it! Later, if you wish to go back to Google and set it your default search engine again, simply follow the same steps mentioned above and select it in the end.
The Bottom Line
Yahoo and Bing both offer good user-experience. However, Google is what I have been mostly using for long. It is a fast-paced and more comprehensive. What’s your take on it?
