Could someone please tell me the name of this "up left arrow" icon used in Google / Chrome mobile search bar list? (Icon highlighted in image) I looked around but couldn't find any info.
Also, does it have a specific meaning and usage?

Searching on the internet "diagonal arrow search results" yields results such as Quick Tip: Long Press Google Search Suggestions To Pop Them Into The Search Bar. From the site:
Remember that little diagonal arrow that used to appear next to suggestions in the Google Search box as you typed? The arrows could be used to insert suggestions into the search bar, while you kept typing away.
As above the icon is used add the suggestion into your current search so that you can carry on typing, clicking the word would just search for the suggestion.
Google are still using the icon in Oreo and the latest Pixel launcher/feed so I can't see them phasing it out. The icon isn't in the Material icon pack but is the same as the call made and call received icons, they just need to be rotated to point in the correct direction.
This is the Android Vector Drawable top-left arrow. I mirrored ic_call_made from material icons, as suggested by @Stephen C.
