so.. I was wondering. When I'm gonna install CalyxOS .. how much of MicroG do I need to run Google Maps. because, frankly, I can't go without it. This is intended to become my workphone and I sometimes just need Google Maps for that
@metalune Google maps works without play services usually. So you probably don't need microG at all for that
@projectmoon really? but .. I've heard from GrapheneOS users that they can't use Google Maps so there must be something preventing them, right?
@metalune Might be an update that has messed it up. It seems to run on microG for me, though it prompts to update play services (that can be suppressed). Not heavily tested, but seems fine.
@projectmoon if you can test it directly, could I use it as a progressive web appp without play services?
@metalune it should be noted that you don't have to turn on the connectivity to Google when using microG. It's still useful for compatibility, the map API, and network geolocation.
@projectmoon oh? hum.. well, then maybe it's worth considering then. I'll try to go without it at first. If it doesn't work out well without, then I'll just reinstall Calyx
