Location service not working in SharePoint android app RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have implemented geo-location functionality in one of our site in SharePoint. The user has to option to enable the location setting by clicking on a toggle button which displays a pop up asking for permission to allow the location service to be used and once permission is granted then the user gets the details of the current location.

    The feature is working fine in desktop and mobile browsers but it does not work in SharePoint Android app. In SharePoint android app the pop up asking for location permission does not show up.

    Below is the reference of the feature which we have implemented.

    Is there any thing which needs to be enabled in Sharepoint android app for the location service to work properly.

    We are using SharePoint online. Below is the screenshot of the functionality (when user clicks on the toggle button he gets the pop up asking permission to enable the location service) which is working fine on mobile browser but fails in SharePoint Android app. The pop up does not show up in Android app. Is the popup blocked in android app?
