    I just got an A50 and the timelime feature for Google Maps is not working. Location services are on, and the map shows me where I am at any point in time, but is not either recording or showing the timeline.

    Would appreciate any assistance.

    Does this require that "location history" is enabled? It might be worth checking your Google account's settings.

    (I keep that switched off myself, but "timeline" sounds like a way of displaying the location history so this is my first guess)

    Yes my Location History is on.

    Found out the solution -

    Google Maps - > My Timeline - Settings Menu (3 dots) -> Select Location History (doesn't matter if it is on of off) -> Click down arrow next to "Devices on this account". Make sure that your device is selected.

    Worked for me!!
