Google Search has a different look to it after October 1, 2013. In the past when you conducted a Google search, you also had the ability to utilize a black toolbar right above the search query. Now Google has implemented an application (apps) system to access all the programs that Google has.
It can be found in the upper right hand part of the screen. It looks like a little square box with 3 rows of 3 smaller boxes. The easiest way to find it is by looking for your name if you are logged into your Google account. You’ll see it in this video.
