    Google Maps offline maps HK - Area unavailable

    Hello!

    I tried to download a certain area of HK in Google Offline Maps, and got the message "Area unavailable" in return.

    The area is very small; around 5 blocks.

    Is anyone having the same problem? Are Google's services being restricted in HK now?

    Thanks for your answers.

    This might be the problem:

    Google Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets Are Down For Everyone Right Now [Update]

    But...

    We are in HK, aren't we? Wasn't HK supposed to be different?

    Well...

    HK, beware!

    Google services suffered an outage on Friday/Saturday and hence maybe why you got these errors. I have no problems using Google services in HKG

    Looks like offline map saving is still unavailable

    I've just tried downloading Taikoo in Google Maps on Android (using the Okay Maps shortcut) - getting "Area Unavailable"
