Google is testing a new method to ask users to choose their location to better localize or personalize the search results presented to that searcher. This overlay says, "choose location for search results" and then offers an option for an "estimated location" or "precise location."

Here is his screenshot on X:

This graphical UI for this setting, I think, is new. The setting itself, is not new.
