IP for google services differ from results from 8.8.8.8 and my provider's dns

Here’s my help link: https://1.1.1.1/help/#eyJpc0NmIjoiWWVzIiwiaXNEb3QiOiJObyIsImlzRG9oIjoiWWVzIiwicmVzb2x2ZXJJcC0xLjEuMS4xIjoiWWVzIiwicmVzb2x2ZXJJcC0xLjAuMC4xIjoiWWVzIiwicmVzb2x2ZXJJcC0yNjA2OjQ3MDA6NDcwMDo6MTExMSI6Ik5vIiwicmVzb2x2ZXJJcC0yNjA2OjQ3MDA6NDcwMDo6MTAwMSI6Ik5vIiwiZGF0YWNlbnRlckxvY2F0aW9uIjoiT1RQIiwiaXNXYXJwIjoiTm8iLCJpc3BOYW1lIjoiRGlnaXRhbCBPY2VhbiIsImlzcEFzbiI6IjE0MDYxIn0=
Here’s the result from Cloudflare:

dig www.googleapis.com +recurse @1.1.1.1 +short
172.217.169.170
172.217.17.106
172.217.17.234
172.217.169.202
172.217.17.138
142.250.187.138
216.58.214.138
142.250.184.138
216.58.206.170
142.250.187.170
142.250.187.106
172.217.20.74

and here’s the result from google dns:

dig www.googleapis.com +recurse @8.8.8.8 +short
172.217.19.106
172.217.20.10
142.250.180.202
142.250.180.234
142.250.201.202
142.251.39.10
142.251.39.42
142.251.39.74

That’s because Google DNS supports ECS which will send your client subnet to the CDN to deliver more local results. Cloudflare does not support ECS.
