Google location searches are not linking to Navigation

  • Hello,

    Not sure what the problem is, but I have a new phone (Pixel 2) and was always using Opera on my old phone (Moto 😵 with great success. Now on the Pixel 2, Opera and Opera Beta, when attempting to use a Google search to find a location once the "directions" button is pressed, Opera shows a map and directions "list" but does not show a "navigate" link as it used to and as my other browsers do (Chrome, dolphin, firefox),

    What is possibly going on? Opera has been great for me and my main browser for years on the Moto X, and I would like to stay with it.

    Same here on my S7.
    I click on a navigation link form a website...Google maps/Nav opens in Opera, and the circular NAV button briefly appears then vanishes.

    With other test browsers (including Opera Mini ironically) a NAV button appears or....the Google nav layer shows up and I can click to navigate etc.

  • I just updated to the newest version and it seems to be fixed... We'll see how it goes...
