Google has added OpenSearch Support to its Search engine, so you can easily make it as the default search option in the Microsoft Edge address bar. Changing default search engine from Bing to another one is easy in Microsoft Edge, but not with Google Search, because it doesn’t support OpenSearch standard.
It doesn’t took long for Google to do that, Edge engineer Jacob Rossi tweeted sometime back that Google has started rolling out OpenSearch 11. support for Microsoft Edge browser. In the Windows 10 build 10166, we in India able to set Google.co.in as default search engine for Edge, no reason why you can’t.

Setting Google as default Search Provider in Microsoft Edge browser
1. Visit Google homepage in the Edge browser.
2. Click on More actions (…) icon > Settings > in the drop down below ‘Search in the address bar with’, select <Add new> and click on ‘Add as default’ (check the below screenshot).
We like to see the option to remove added search engines in Microsoft Edge browser as well, let us hope Microsoft provides that in the RTM version.
