Recently, some users also complained about experiencing the same Google Maps “No Results Found” error. Here (1,2,3) are some of what the affected users are saying. With fresh reports now coming, it means Google hasn’t yet addressed the annoying issue affecting the Google Maps search function.

Is there any fix or workaround to address the issue?

Sadly, there’s no official fix yet to address the annoying issue, where Google Maps displays the “No Results Found” error when users search for any location. The good news, however, is that the Google Team is now aware of the issue, according to this post.

The Google team is already working on a fix to address the problem. For now, we don’t know when the fix will be ready. If you’re one of the affected users, you may try using one of the workarounds below:

  • First, try accessing the Google Maps function via your browser’s Incognito mode. This suggestion came from one of the affected users.
  • Alternatively, you might consider using Google Maps whilst signed out. Some users pointed out that this workaround is pretty much effective.
  • Last, try logging out of your Google account and then logging back in.

We’ll continue to monitor the Google Team for the official fix, which it’s currently working on. As soon as we find anything worth sharing, you’ll be the first to know about it here.
