Niantic Announces Wayfarer that Allows Pokémon GO Players To Nominate And Review Points-Of-Interest


Have you ever visited an odd spot or dangerous location while playing Pokémon Go? We know, its really frustrating to visit the same landmark over and over. Well, to help you out from these problems, Niantic has announced a new tool that will allow you to help the devs to improve the overall experience in its augmented reality games.

The brand new tool is “Niantic Wayfarer” for which Niantic will recruit some eligible players Pokémon GO players before the end of this year to nominate and review new points-of-interest. However, Niantic didn’t make it clear what those eligibility criteria is to get selected for this tool.

The primary aim of Niantic is to apparently “inspire others to discover new places and things” and “highlight the positive and unique qualities of a place or community” – such as museums, art installations to historical markers.

Niantic also mentioned that Wayspots like unsafe locations, private property or on the grounds of schools aren’t eligible to be selected as Wayspots. Wayspots impacted by seasons will also be avoided. The rating system is how Wayfinders review new points-of-interest and decide whether or not they should be added to a Niantic game.

For more information regarding how this tool works, Niantic has released a video which you can see below.
