Spotlight does not show contents from the internet. It only searches my mac HD. What should I do?

I am using MacBookPro Retina 13" with Yosemite 10.10.3

  • What do you mean from the internet? The ability to perform quick search on Bing? – user14492 May 7 '15 at 13:16
  • I mean when i search something through Spotlight app, it must show results have founded in internet in addition to results have founded inside my mac. – Siyamak Hejazi May 7 '15 at 17:38
  • Wikipedia results? Can you give a screenshot or example on the web because I haven't seen any results from the "internet" in spotlight? Internet is quite vague. – user14492 May 7 '15 at 18:52
  • I added a sample image to my question. this image is from this link: macworld.com/article/2369722/… There is a full review of new Spotlight features. – Siyamak Hejazi May 8 '15 at 12:38

For 10.13 only sixteen countries have this feature - http://www.apple.com/osx/feature-availability/#spotlight-suggestions

I mean your country might not be in the list yet, I'm facing the same issue

For macOS High Sierra, here is the feature list page documenting what works where.
