No access to Google Maps
It has been several weeks since I’ve been able to access Google Maps on my MacBook Air (Dec 2020, latest OS). The consistent message is:“We are sorry, but you do not have access to Google Maps. Please contact your Organization Administrator for access.”Folks, it would seem that I am the Organization Administrator. I have tried contacting me, but I am not giving myself any helpful answers.Thanks!

Large Organization - Google Workspace or other solution
I work for a large organization where we are looking to manage accounts for access to google products. We cannot give up our domain to Google Workspace but we need the user role based control that workspace offers. We would also like to use SSO through O365. What have other companies done in this scenario for Google Product role based access by an admin account?

Two problems with Google on Android phone
Using Google on an Android phone, is there a way to manually have Google cycle the stories displayed? I use Google from my Android phone and it used to cycle new stories based on my interests many times every day. It cycled too often for me.Then about 4 months ago it changed and started cycling new stories about once every day. Over the following 4 months it gradually decreased the cycle frequency so now it cycles about once every 4 days, sometimes 5 days.The other problem is that it displays 3.5 stories. I can scroll through the list of stories and see the 1st, 2nd and 3rd stories and half of the 4th story. If I scroll down further to fully see the 4th story Google aborts. I can touch each of those stories (even the 4th) and it brings up that story where I can scroll fully and then exit back to the 3.5 stories but on the original screen I can only scroll down to see half of the 4th story. If I scroll further Google aborts with NO error messages displayed. Months ago, after this cha
Google Pixel 4XL battery charging issue
Hi. Not sure if I'm on the right platform so apologies in advance. But if I am on the right platform I need help. When I connect my battery charging cable or unplug it, it resets my phone. For example if I am on YouTube the video will stop automatically. If I'm on tiktok it will restart TikTok and so on. The screen goes off and on in matter of second. How can I fix this?Thank you
Google Meet vs. Zoom: Microsoft plug-ins
What’s your experience using Microsoft plug-ins on either platform?Excerpt from this Meet vs. Zoom eBook states:“Zoom offers plugins that enable the platform to integrate with Microsoft Outlook and Teams so that Zoom meetings will show up in Microsoft users’ calendars. However, because of Google Meet’s integration with the rest of Google Workspace, Meet takes things much further.Easy-to-use plugins make it simple for mixed GoogleMicrosoft teams to coordinate their calendars and schedule meetings. The Google Meet add-in for Microsoft Outlook enables Microsoft users to add Meet video conferencing details to their Outlook calendars, while the Google Calendar Interop tool enables team members to view each others’ schedules and book meeting times.The big differentiator happens when a mixed GoogleMicrosoft team wants to collaborate on content during a meeting. Using the Office editing feature, Google users can easily access, edit, and even collaborate on Office files right in Google Docs, Sh

Drive beta making file folder moves easier.
New Drive Beta that support Folder moves to Shared Drives. (Woohoo) https://workspaceupdates.googleblog.com/2021/09/new-beta-experience-for-admins-to-move-folders-to-shared-drives.html Moving folders from My Drive to a Shared Drive has been a problem, this is due to the Folder ID’s being changed as the move process actually creates a new Folder, and then moves the files. So when admins move folders, the existing folder IDs change, existing links to these folders can break, and impacts on shared drive limits are unclear. Google has just announced a new Drive beta, were folder IDs will not change and moves that can potentially exceed any shared drive limits will be rejected. This beta will add several usability enhancements including: Retaining folder IDs (“copyless moves”) to reduce disruption due to the move Preventing moves that would exceed any shared drive limits Reparenting any unmovable items under the item owner's My Drive root, and creating shortcuts in the existing hierarchy
