If you’re one of the Pokémon Go players that have been using the Pokémon Go Plus accessory to help you catch Pokémon, Niantic has just updated the software for the device with some improvements.
Firstly, Trainers will now be able to choose from multiple notification modes. By default, your Pokémon Go Plus will still scan for PokéStops or Pokémon simultaneously, but now with the update you will be able to individually enable or disable each of the notifications as you prefer.
Also, when you are out walking with your Buddy Pokémon, you can select not to receive notifications at all and simply record how far you walk.
Finally, the Pokémon Go Plus accessory will still remain paired with the Pokémon Go app if you are using the app when interacting with Pokémon or Gyms.
The Pokémon Go Plus accessory is still in very short supply, and is currently out of stock in the UK Nintendo online store.
