With the official companion app, organising Pokémon Go meet-ups has never been easier

Niantic has announced a new social media app that acts as a Pokémon Go companion, bringing a slew of new features to the game.

Campfire is marketed as a social networking tool that may be used in conjunction with the developer’s augmented reality mobile games, while not being explicitly designed for Pokémon Go.

It incorporates a number of features that fans have been requesting for years to be included to the Pokémon Go app.

You’ll be able to interact with other players through an integrated messaging system, and you’ll be able to schedule meet-ups with nearby gamers.
