The problem is with your iPhone right ? Is Google and other google services working on your Mac computer ? You said when you use data, google services working on iPhone and when you connect to WiFi, it is not working. If you connect your iPhone to WiFi, can you load other websites not related to Google ?

Regards
Jins

Any time I'm connected to our wifi on any device, Google.com will not load.
Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 1 year ago.

If you connect your devices to WiFi, can you load other websites not related to Google ? For example if you connect your Macbook to WiFi, can you access justanswer.com and yahoo.com?
