Google added a new option to the Google Business Profile screen in web search for "add address autocomplete." This is not really a search feature but a promotion to use the Google Maps Cloud Platform to help users check out with the correct address on your e-commerce site or forms.

Colan Nielsen spotted this and posted about it on X - I see it as well. Google writes that this would "help customers enter the right address for a faster checkout."

When you click on it, it reads, "Use Autocomplete from Google Maps Platform to help customers enter the right address."

Then it takes you into the Google Maps Platform on Google Cloud to start building it out:

Again, this should not impact your Google local listings or rankings - it is just a promotion from Google to use more of their features.
