Google Maps seems to have at least two different ways for users (administrators also have different ways) to submit edits to a map listing. If you go through a search in Google Maps directly, you get one method. If you do a search in Google web search and click edit, you get a different way. Of course, administrators/business owners can go directly to the Google My Business section to update their listings, use the API or schema.

If you go through Google Maps, you get the edit screen that you've likely seen before:

If you go through web search, you get a new interface:

The folks in the Local Search Forums are talking about it, where Linda said "I'm seeing this when logged into both my work and personal Google accounts. If only it let us suggest edits to the business description and amenities."
