Pokémon Go Brings Step-Count Tracking Feature In Its New Update

If you are one of the fans of the Pokemon Go game, you must be knowing the steps one has to cover in order to catch various characters and trust me, it’s not easy at all. So, to tap on such an exercising practice, the Niantic group has come up with a new feature called Adventure Sync.

The Adventure Sync feature will track the walking distance of the user in the background with sync in iOS HealthKit and Android Google Fit, even if some other app is in use or the device is put in the pocket. Adventure Sync will turn out to be an “efficient and phone-friendly high-engagement tool” that will encourage people to go out and stay fit.

"The new gameplay system will sync in the background with iOS HealthKit and Android Google Fit," Niantic announced via a blog post, "and give players access to a weekly summary that highlights distance traveled on foot and other stats, including calories burned or steps counted if their device makes those available."

The new update in the popular augmented reality (AR) game is confirmed to be rolled out for the Pokémon Go players, while the company is planning to bring the feature to its other games in due course.

The move of adding the Adventure Sync feature has come after an international survey of nearly 2,000 Trainers, according to which, 70 percent of the participants reported Pokemon Go had motivated them to walk more, while 64 percent said that after they played this game, they felt the need to go out. Also, 47 percent of people experienced a surge in their physical activity level.

Adventure Sync is being added to the AR game after almost two years of the game existence. Niantic always up with something or the other to keep the game engaging. In the last update, Pokemon Go got the addition of monsters from the Sinnoh region.

Interestingly, Niantic registered September as the most profitable month for the Pokemon game, bagging $85 million in revenue. It made it game's highest ever revenue collection since November last year.
