    That search was one of my favorite BlackBerry features, but ever since I reloaded my Priv (or maybe since an update of the contacts app) the option is no longer there. Do I have something set incorrectly or has this feature been removed?

    It was removed. Google shut down the service that it used.

    Bummer. Just found out that also on my not updated contacts app 1.6.x it is not working anymore as described:

    Thx LiamQ for clarification, so I know 2.x won't bring it back.

    thanks for the clarification. I'm super disappointed. I also can't believe that in this day and age no one has an app that can do this. even in a search in Google once you come up with a business there is a way to save the phone number but not the whole business contact information how can that be??

    Well in Google Maps it seems to work when you search a business - tap it for fullscreen and tap ︙-menu and save as contact.

    But it needs permission "App & Web activity" .
    So you have to pay with your data to get info another private person entered at google

    I would pay at least 5Eur to get an app that respects my privacy and deliver me the opportunity to search in Google database and save those adresses completely to a contacts-account I choose on my device.
    I had that on webOS which even saved the opening times in the notes of a contact (hail to 72ka).
