Google updates Search app for Android with widget, movie ratings and real estate listings

Google has issued an update to its Search app for Android, bringing the rumoured widget functionality to devices running Jelly Bean and higher.

In addition to the widget, which consolidates various subscribed cards such as weather, stocks and transit, the app now allows users to look up movie ratings through Rotten Tomatoes and, in the States, passes through Fandango.

You can also look up real estate listings through Zillow when searching for a home, and Now now supports college sports just in time for March Madness.

This is a great update to an increasingly important service to Android’s future, and now that Jelly Bean is on 13.6% of devices, many millions of users now have access to it.
