Redesigned Google app starts rolling out on Android with emphasis on topics and news

"Home" is now devoted to news. You need to tap the Upcoming icon to see cards from your calendar, emails, reminders and travel times.

And you can set your favorite Topics.

Besides using your searches to auto-subscribe you to news topics, there's also an explicit "Follow topics" card you can tap on to manually tell Google what you like. This can be individual sports teams, TV shows, movies, and other topics. You can also really drill down into some topics, like technology, which lets you pick from things like "Cryptocurrency," "Space exploration," and "Virtual Reality."
