Google search app will not connect to internet

Postby andypoulton » December 13th, 2016, 9:05 pm

This is bonkers.
Started last weekend on both our tablets.?
Tried to search. Says no internet connection. Check settings.
I have an internet connection works brilliant. I can even use the apps ( Gmail. Maps etc) within the Google search app.

I can use Chrome and as a workaround I have enabled the UC browser app and use Google search in that.

Can anyone help.

I have uninstalled and re installed the app loads of times now hoping for an update.
How Can I manually update it. Where can I get the version number.
Google forums and Google have no answers

Bizarre.

Cheers Andy

This is due to a MS update that for me conflicts with my antivirus. I temporarily disable my antivirus and everything runs fine. But, this isn't happening on all of my devices only the one I'm running the Windows Insider Preview. (you get beta updates)

Additionally, there have been reports of a MS update that has affected some Internet Service Providers. It's caused mayhem for DNS and other services essential for connectivity.

Hi Popcorn.
Thanks for your kind update.
Guessed it was something like this.
Yesterday I could not get emails to BT addresses as they all bounced.
Spent 40 minutes in a chat to MS. Then later found out it was an MS update causing all BT ISP users on W10 to lose access. An update/patch was due by 1800 last night.
Surprise after 1730 emails went through fine.
I am on BT but W7 and W8.1

I eagerly await another update and re install Google Search.
If you know pop us an update.

Cheers Andy
