Google now offers a new way for users to see the latest shenanigans in their neighborhoods. Search now shows events based on user interests, with personal results and key information available right within the app.
With the update, users can now press an event and see a handy overview showing many important details. For example, if it is a show, Google shows when it happens, how to get there, and other relevant information. Users can also save events for later or continue to purchase tickets through third party providers. Everything is handled directly within Search, which means that users do not have to make unnecessary popups and redirects.

It seems to be Google's strategy for late-make Search does everything so users do not have to use other options. It's a slick tragedy, one that worked for China's WeChat, an app that basically can do almost anything.
