Pokemon Go developer Niantic confirmed earlier this month that it would launch an AR portrait mode for the game on Android. The feature is called “Go Snapshot” and it allows players to use the app to take AR photos. Well, the feature is now live for Pokemon Go on Android devices if you want to check it out.
The Go Snapshot feature can only be accessed by players if they are a Level 5 or above trainer. So you can’t just start playing the game from scratch and use the feature. You have to earn it. You’ll have to capture some Pokemon before you’re able to take AR photos with your favorite monster.
You could already take photos of the Pokemon that you see in the wild using the app, but this feature lets you take photos of the Pokemon that you have already captured with the real world as the backdrop. Just toss a Pokeball at the background you want. You can also make Pokemon interact with real-life objects.
It is now available for the Android version of the game. We don’t know when the feature is going to be released for iOS. Hopefully, that won’t take too long for iOS.
