That's likely because the search button is hidden in the hamburger menu below the different view options.

Google Assistant can now access your Calendar and Meet events from multiple accounts

Google Assistant can now access your Calendar and Meet events from multiple accounts

Checking upcoming events and meetings is one of the benefits of owning a smart speaker or display; instead of fumbling with your phone to find your calendar, you just ask a question and get all the information you need... as long as you're only using one Google account.

Spam in Calendar, Drive, and Photos will always be an issue if Google keeps trying to catch it after the fact

Another large wave of spam has been hitting Google Drive users over the past few weeks. You might have noticed it either through an email in your Gmail inbox or a notification on your phone — or both — saying that an unknown email address mentioned you in a document. The comment includes a URL that you should absolutely not click. This is not the first time spammers have abused Drive, Calendar, or even Photos, and it likely won't be the last. Google's steps to remedy the different situations have been nothing but a band-aid over a bleeding, gaping hole.

Google Calendar adds miniature version of Maps to its sidebar, but you can disable it

About two years ago, Google added sidebars to its web apps, enhancing its services with miniature versions of Calendar, Tasks, or Keep, and you can even integrate third-party applets.
