Last year, Android users also got the same search update for the app, but later it made optional by Google. Some users complained that the feature was annoying and distracting and mostly brings out the search they are not interested in. Fortunately, Apple users already are given the opt-out toggle that users can access via their account settings from upper left corner of the search interface.

The new updates came after the recent addition of personalized news feed feature which suggests the search content on basis of user history and topics of interest. Google’s self-developed algorithm to deliver users interested suggestions in search has replaced the Google Now.  

Failing to distribute the new search update feature at certain locations the company is still pushing the support to its servers. In case you haven't updated your Google search app you can check for the update here for iOS devices.
