New in Pokemon GO 0.115.2 APK: notifications overhaul, friend QR codes and a metric ton of quality of life updates
Another day, another APK, or as the old song says, another girl, another planet. Good morning everyone, let’s see what’s new in the latest and greatest Pokemon GO update: Pokemon GO 0.115.2 APK tear down! And sorry, but there’s no Gen IV in this release, aside from the network traffic leak that was released yesterday.
As you will notice as soon as you update, the in-game notification system has been significantly overhauled, featuring a new toast that has a lot more information than the previous ones:
It’s nothing groundbreaking, but it’s nice to see that notifications are now actually useful (and clickable in most cases!). We’re excited to see how NIA will use this new UI to relay even more information in the future, as there’s a ton of changes in the APK that relate to notification messaging and implementation.
(*) Yes, I’m level 36, not 40, Hub takes a lot of time. Yes, I know how Lucky Eggs work. Stop giving me a hard time about my level 🙁
Adding friends via QR codes
We’re seeing large traces of QR code support for adding friends, all the way from QR barcode readers to in-game flags related to players performing this action. Although the feature is not yet released, we presume it’s in active testing and should become available in the nearby future.
Alas, the feature has a hidden UI as well!
