Pokémon GO AR+ is finally available on Android

Niantic has announced that Pokémon GO AR+ is finally available on select Android devices that support ARCore. The official announcement from the development team is as follows:

Pokémon GO AR+ Now Supported by Android!

Trainers,

Android users can now experience Pokémon GO in a whole new way! Get up close and personal with Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn regions with Pokémon GO AR+!

Pokémon GO AR+ requires ARCore to be downloaded from the Google Play Store, so you should check first to see if your device is supported. Once downloaded, Pokémon GO AR+ offers the opportunity to have a unique AR experience when encountering Pokémon. As you walk up to a Pokémon, it scales in size and will notice your movement! Get up close before you throw your Poké Ball to make the Pokémon easier to catch, and even earn an Expert Handler bonus!! Or you can tap the camera icon to take a photo of your subject in the environment around you.

For more details on ARCore and Pokémon AR+ for Android users, check out our Help Center. Stay safe, and happy exploring!
