This new feature will work for addresses in the U.S. Australia or New Zealand. Google's Seth LaForge explains on this Google Lat-Long blog post that this can be put to use to correct the marker locations for homes and businesses by actually picking up the marker on the map and dropping it down right where the physical door or entrance is, making it easier for people visiting! This is a fantastic new feature that will help you ensure people can find you on and off the Google map!
This nifty little 30 second YouTube clip will help you visually see how this feature can be put to good use:
