How to change the wrong home address in Google Now

I have recently moved house and so I have changed my home address within Google Now to my new home location. When I receive the popup about commuting times to "Home", it is still referring to my old location. Anyone know how to rectify this at all?

Thanks

Open Now on your device, and scroll to the bottom (or click the 3 line menu button if you are on Lollipop), and click the wand icon. Then click Places. You can then click on Home and edit the address.

You see, I've done both of those things yet it still shows I'm 1:45 mins from home with my old address being the destination even though I'm sat in my new living room. Very bizarre

Interesting. Wonder if google sync is on...or possibly location history needs to be on. I know if it is turned off,it retains the previous location information (unless deleted by the user]

Yeah, those are both on too. It's all very bizarre. I'm now getting both the old and the new address so it's obviously registering my new address but somewhere my old address is sticking too.

Have you tried to delete location history?

Did you ever get a resolution to this problem? I'm experiencing the same thing - including when I get to my new home, I get parking cards saying I parked at my old house.

Yep.. I had the same problem..
But recently, i noticed that you can delete your old home address via maps, then set your new home address

This is what i did:
Open Google Maps app
Go to Side Menu (you can tap the three line or swipe from the side)
Tap Your Places
There should be Home, Work, etc there, but the top should be Home. Next to it (just beside it) theres something like x, if you tap it, it would delete your home address
Now you have your old home address deleted

Next is how to add your new home address, this is what I did:
Locate your home address (whether you tapping the location button or find it manually)
Long press the address
Then somehing came up
Now tap three dot on the upper right, then tap Label
Now label it as Home
Done
