Moments ago, Google pushed an update out to Google Search in Google Play, bringing some slick new features that we have been talking about over the past couple of days. Google Now widget, anyone? On top of an all new widget that can be placed on either your homescreen or lockscreen, movie rating are pulled from Rotten Tomatoes, there are movie passes from Fandango, and even real estate listings from Zillow. 

What’s in this version:

For Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean):

  • Google Now widget for home screen or lock screen
  • Movie passes from Fandango
  • Movies now includes ratings from Rotten Tomatoes
  • Real estate listings from Zillow when in the market for a home
  • Music button when a song is playing in voice mode (US only)
  • Support for US college sports

*Lockscreen widget support only available on Android 4.2+.

Update:  Here is a look at all of the new cards.

Go grab it!
