Places: Unable to view article on map if device location access is denied
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG REPORT


Steps to reproduce

  1. Open in the Android app.
  2. Scroll to the bottom and tap Auf einer Karte ansehen (View on a map).
  3. If asked to allow access to your location, deny it.

Actual result

  1. A toast message appears with the text Location permission is required to see your location on the map. Please try again.

Expected result

  1. The place is highlighted on the map, maybe it doesn’t ask for location permission at all – I want to see that article on the map, not my position, so denying the location access doesn’t make it impossible to fulfill my request.
