Google is continually developing and implementing new features in its Google App application and with the release of a new Beta (v7.1) some more clues about new features have emerged.
As has become customary, the team of Android Police You have scrutinized the code present in this new update and have discovered at least two features that should reach users very soon.

The most interesting is undoubtedly the "pollen count", which could help millions of users worldwide who suffer each year from their pollen allergies coming in at this time of year.
Obviously this new feature will not "cure" any allergies or soothe symptoms, but certainly being able to know the level of pollen concentration in your area will be very valuable information.
This new feature was "unraveled" by finding an image of a flower with small pollen grains named "ic_pollen_count.png".
Google App could win new search bar
The second new feature found in the code for the new beta of Google App is the addition of a search bar in the notifications panel. But, there is no extra information that will allow us to find out how this new bar will be implemented.
Certainly one of the options will be to replace the current search box on the main screen, thus freeing up more room for widgets to use for example. Another "problem" that may be questioned is how to apply it, if you need to go to the top of the screen to be able to search, it can be quite inconvenient.
A good strategy to take is an Apple-like approach on iOS, where to access the search feature you just have to swipe down anywhere on the screen, and the keyboard is also readily available.
However, there is no guarantee that these new features will actually be implemented as they are so far just lines of code in a trial version of the application.
As soon as new information about these features comes up, we will certainly be able to better explain how they will work and to what extent they may prove to be really useful.
