Entering in a search "something something near my home" and "something something near my office" is triggering a prompt from Google to add this information. The forms don't actually seem to work -- has anyone else seen this?

Woah, first I've seen that. The form worked fine for me though, I told it where 'home' was and it worked, works on future searches too. I'm using an up to date version of chrome, for whatever that's worth.

At first I thought I'd be writing to say how 'surprise, surprise, this hadn't rolled out in Australia' as I wasn't seeing any requests for 'Home' in my searches.

However then I thought I'd try an incognito search and voila:

Turns out I'd previously added Home / Work to Google Maps (https://support.google.com/maps/answer/3093979?rd=1) so when doing normal searches, they must now be being taken into account.
