Hello! My spotlight is not searching in Maps, Wikipedia or Internet Suggestions. I tried to add them to Spotlight Search Results in System Preferences, but they were not there. I cannot add them too. Am I the only one with this Problem? Thanks.

I got the same problem. If I were to guess, it´s our location. I´m based in Scandinavia.

Its the same by my iPhone 6. In Spotlight no Suggested Websites, Suggested Showtimes, Nearby places, No Wikipedia Suggestions. And my Region is Germany...

For me too. And can't search on internet with it for anything. Only shows the files. Any idea?

it might seem strange but is your system language the same as location? i had this problem on my phone (english system language, location italy) and it didn't work, then i switched to italian system lang and it worked. maybe its the same with the mac. pity, i can't use computers with any other language than english :)

Yeah, Thanks, it worked. I changed my region to United Kingdom and now it works. Only the Movie Showtimes is not working now.

I seem to get Wikipedia, suggested website and local files. Nothing from a Bing Search even though it's ticked in Spotlight Preferences. Location UK.

Anyone living physically outside the listed regions and have it working?

is this being verified by your GPS location? or your icloud account region settings?
