Pokemon Go Adventure Sync: What is it?
Adventure Sync is a feature that allows a player to record paths in kilometres travelled by a player even when the Pokemon Go app isn’t open on your phone. Pokemon Go will record your activity and allow earning Buddy Candy and hatching eggs while your app is closed. You can enable push notifications on your device to know if your Pokemon Buddy found a candy or one of the eggs hatch. It is a feature that keeps track of your fitness, too; you can get weekly reports on the same and earn rewards for crossing milestones.
To enable the Adventure Sync feature,
- Grant location permissions to the Pokemon Go app.
- Connect your phone to Apple Health (Google Fit for Android users).
- Tap the Main Menu button.
- Visit the Settings menu.
- Tap on Adventure Sync.
- You will be requested to grant permission for Pokemon Go to access your Apple Health data.
- Adventure Sync will then be enabled.
To disable Adventure Sync, go to Settings and uncheck Adventure Sync. That’s all.
