It appears that whenever a featured snippet comes up in the Google search results that it is now always followed by the people also ask feature. So you have a featured snippet at the top of the results and then right after it is this people also ask feature.

Here are some screen shots, but I can go on and on with examples:

There is a whole conversation about this going on, on Twitter from Jonathan Jones and others. It is weird, I don't personally like it, but I am not sure if this is a bug or intentional. It seems intentional but who knows. Let's see if this lasts.

Do you think this is super useful for searchers?

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Update: There is not ALWAYS a people also ask after the featured snippet, but they often are. Here is an example from Glenn:
