Will I ever be able to have google as my main search engine on edge?

I have tried to get it but only available options are Bing (soz Microsoft but BOKE) and Yahoo.

I haven't checked to see if this has been disabled in the newest update from Microsoft, but my Edge is up to date as of November 11, 2015. (Before the November Release.) It works fine on that particular release.

Microsoft Edge uses OpenSearch technology, so you can change the default search engine.
1. Enter the search engine’s website and browse to it.
2. Select More actions (...)> Settings and then scroll down to select View advanced settings. In the list under Search in the address bar with, choose Add new.
3. Select the website and then select Add as default.
