Problem importing kml-Files into Google Earth on Tablet
0
Hello everyone, I hope to find help here.

I currently installed Google Earth on two Tablets, both Samsung Galaxy TabA Tablets, both bought at the same time.

I installed Google Earth on both of them. Both OS and Earth are updated to the newest version.

When I go to "projects" and tap on "open", both Tablets behave differently. On Tablet 1, a pop-up menu opens which asks if I 
1) want to import a kml file (then I can search it on the system itself)
2) want to use OneDrive (then have to chose a account etc.)

On Tablet 2, the option to import kml is missing. Without a pop-up, it directly asks me to chose a account and then shows me my empty OneDrive files.

Is there any solution to this? I updated everything and deinstalled and reinstalled Earth several times.

Thank You for your help in advance,

Dennis :)

Similar problem here. I have been using Google Earth on my android phone to improt KML tracks for a long time. Suddenly now the option to import a KML has disappeared. The only option I get is to open a project through Google Drive. But when I select this all the KML tracks in my drive are greyed out and I cannot select them. The only thing that is selectable are projects that I have made myself in the Google Earth web browser interface.
Seem like they do not allow you to import KML files anymore. Is this true or is this a bug ?

The only workaround I found is to open the google drive app on the phone and open the kml file from there. It downloads the file to the phone and asks me with which app to open it. I choose Google Earth and it loads fine. Why all this trouble and not have the old "Import KML file" option in the app instead ?
