[Update 25th July- 2018] In a recent update by Google webmaster announced that they will disable public method to submit the URL to Google index.
Google Webmasters said, “We’ve had to drop the public submission feature.” The company did not say why it was necessary to drop it. Maybe it has to do with spam issues or abuse. Google added, “… but we continue to welcome your submissions using the usual tool in Search Console and through sitemaps directly.”

Following method does not work.
How to submit URL to Google directly from search
Step 1. Go to Google.
Step 2. Search for [submit URL to Google].
Step 3. Google will place a box at the top of the search results. You can enter any URL and submit it to Google for indexing.
Earlier, you had to submit URLs to Google within the Google Search Console or at the submit URL form. Now you can do it within the search results.
After you submit the URL, Google responds with “Page submitted to Google Search.” You can then submit a new URL.
There is currently no official word on the same from Google. This feature was spotted by Naman Dwivedi and posted on Twitter.
