Google Maps: Location sharing not working
Date: 2019-11-13 | google | maps | location
I'm using Google Maps to location share with close friends, but ever since I changed phones people can no longer see my location with the error "XXX is offline". How can I fix this?
- Open up Google Maps
- Click the hamburger button to reveal extra optionss
- If the problem is with your device not sending location updates to Google, there will be a banner saying "This device is not sending location updates". Click the
Fixbutton in the banner.
- A pop-up will appear saying "Maps needs your location", click
go to settings
- Flip the setting
Turn location history on
did this help?
