    Wikipedia and bing searches do not come up in spotlight. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Don't think Bing has been integrated yet. No problem with Wikipedia though. Do you have everything selected in System Preferences?

    Also you must finish typing the whole word (or close to it) before you get a Wikipedia choice.

    Just a little research. Are you in the US? It appears it is US only at this time. Also some in the US may not be getting yet too.


    EDIT: Also just checked in System Preferences and I don't have it listed either. I just had all checked and assumed it was there since I get it.

    I wonder why they'd disable it for non-US users? :confused:

    Not in the US and I'am getting wiki suggestions.

    There would be no point in enabling something only for US if it's not contry/region dependant.

    Hi, is your system language set to english? And what is the location set in system preferences? I've discovered that if I set the system language to english and the location to US, wiki results will start working (I'm italian and live in Germany). My theory is that wiki results would work if system language is set to english and the country set in system preferences is english speaking (would make sense, at least for wikipedia results).
    Also, did you notice if the SpotlightNetHelper process is or has been not responding?

    They don't disable Wiki. It's some type of bug. I used to get them but no longer.
