Google location search box, not giving suggestions on chrome iPhone

I’m looking to display geographic search result suggestions on my app , but struggling with functionality on chrome on an iPhone.

The suggested location results display fine on desktop, on mobile safari and other mobile browsers but not chrome , at least for me on my device. Secondary issue is it also seems to be running super slow on mobile, as if there’s a background task activated and that doesn’t appear on desktop.

There’s nothing I can figure out in the workflow that’d be triggering this difference in interactivity apart from perhaps it’s linked to the failing location search??

Any tips super welcome.

{update apparently only 4% of iPhone users use chrome anyway so it might not be as vital as I was thinking, still curious though and would value someone on an Android/Chrome checking to see if it functions or not}
