Default Moto G 4.4.3 dialer app, more versions?

I came across a website which talks about the 4.4.3 dialer app. It mentions features that I don't have on my dialer. Specifically the ability to lookup local numbers.

For fun, I downloaded it onto my Nexus 7, and lo and behold it really works as described in the article. I find that if I type in the names of local businesses/restaurants etc and it really does find their number.

So if this is the same 4.4.3 dialler why don't I have this feature on the Moto G running 4.4.3?

Here is the link to the article that sparked my interest.


I have not dared to install the dialler app on my Moto G (yet). I wonder is this feature switched on and off depending on country etc? Or perhaps Motorola has disabled the lookup capability?

The lookup features are present in the Google dialer, which looks exactly the same, but also has that feature. The stock Motorola rom doesn't have it, however, the gpe and custom roms with gapps installed have it.
