Pokemon Go is one of the best-augmented reality mobile games available in the market. Niantic launched Pokemon Go game back in 2016, and since then the game has been ruling the heart of Pokemon fans and the community.
Pokemon Go has recently crossed 1 billion downloads, and this information was shared on a Japanese TV spot commercial. But until now, the most popular Pokemon mobile game was not working on the latest android dessert, Android Q.
We reported this issue earlier on our platform, where Pokemon Go players were having game freezing issues while loading it. Many users thought it was due to failed SafetyNet values, but that was not the case.
The issue which Pokemon Go players were facing earlier was that the game was loading up to 20 % – 50 % and then it was freezing completely.
Many players have tried to contact Niantic Support regarding this issue in the last couple of months. Niantic Support replied twice over this matter, first in mid-march and then on 9 July. But both times the answer was somewhat similar, which stated – Pokemon Go is not fully compatible with Android Q at the moment.
However, it seems like the issue has been fixed in the latest Pokemon Go game update 0.151.0. A user ‘PokexPerto’ has confirmed this information on his Twitter handle. On Reddit, ‘zebinadams’ has confirmed this information. Have a look at the screenshots below.
Pokemon Go game update 0.151.0 change log summary can be read below.
- Improvements in Fighting Against Team Go Rocket
- During a battle with Team Rocket, a hand is shown for the charge attack
- The battle against Team Go Rocket now shows HP.
Many players who have been using Android Q beta versions will feel relief now as the game is finally compatible now with Android Q.
Yes, the game is compatible with Android Q, but on the hind side, we still have to wait and see how it is performing on various devices. Does it support all smartphones or only works with a few? The answer to that will only come when positive reports come from several users.
