Nintendo's popular augmented-reality game 'Pokemon GO' has just received its first incremental update for the year 2017 across both iOS and Android platforms. The Pokemon GO v1.23.1 for iOS and v0.53.1 for Android are now available for download through ITunes App stores and Google Play Store respectively.
Although the update doesn't include any major feature changes, it brings minor UI improvements and feature enhancements to the gaming app on the Apple Watch, besides featuring a couple of notable bug fixes.
Apple Watch users will now see a visual notification whenever eggs are revealed, after a Trainer interacts with a Pokestop in the augmented world. In addition, the game developer Niantic has also improved the mechanism used to track the distance walked by Trainers in a bid to "better account for GPS drift."
The new Pokemon GO update also adds a few minor bug fixes to font and UI related issues to enhance the overall user experience in the game. Here is the complete official changelog for your reference:
Updated Apple Watch to display Eggs obtained from PokéStops
Changed distance tracking to better account for GPS drift
Minor text fixes
