A new way to play?

Pokemon Go is getting a new AR Mapping system that will require players to complete tasks as Pokestops.

This will then count towards your Daily Field Research Task.

Pokemon Go Gets New AR Features

As per a new Pokemon Blog post:

"Certain PokéStops will have a special design indicating that you’ll receive an AR Mapping task when you spin them! The task will require you to complete an action either at the PokéStop where you received the task or at another PokéStop within a certain radius."

"Complete the task by heading on over to the AR scanning screen and exploring the area around you. This task will count as your daily Field Research task."

"Trainers level 20 and up will have access to this new feature beginning on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7). This feature will not be available to Niantic Kids accounts at launch. In the future, parents will have the option to toggle this feature on for Niantic Kids accounts. Stay tuned for updates on when that option will become available."

You can check out the feature's new trailer below:
