And we’re back! Following my video from two days ago, Google has changed something.
I’m not sure how long the missing Israel “glitch” was there for, but it’s gone and Israel now appears on every browser and every app I can try on my iPhone. For those who left comments, thank you. I did test this with google.com and google.co.uk. The earlier behaviour of the name Israel being missing was common to both. That behaviour has definitely changed at some point since my first video.
