I hate bing, lol.

Go into the app, choose "settings," (hit the button with the three lines at the top... settings is at the bottom of the list) then under "basics" there is a tab that says "search engine."  Bing is one of the choices.  Choose google and you should be good to go!

Change your default search engine in the browser settings.

Oh okay, I thought you meant you wanted it to open to the google search engine, not bing.

In that case, I have no clue... when I open chrome, it shows what I was on last.  Maybe try uninstalling and reinstalling it?

Its already on google. Every time I open internet, like if I closed out right now without closing my open tabs and went and opened it back up it'd open a new tab with bing on it

That's what it did with my old phone (same exact phone, just a replacement because my charging port was loose) and I just got the phone today and it did that from the first time I opened the internet :(
