Pokémon GO released it’s newest update, today (August 8, 2016), and it appears they have rolled out a new tracking feature to answer the angered community. This new tracking feature replaces the three-footstep bug and also the non existent footstep issue.
The new tracking feature apparently shows a picture of exactly where the Pokémon can be found which is absolutely amazing for tracking Pokémon. Trainers all over the internet are raving about it which is making it sound like it’s going to revolutionize tracking as we know it.
Keep in mind, they are starting to roll this feature out right now and it seems like it’s hitting everyone’s devices slowly, so be patient, Niantic is rolling it out slowly.
