A major update is coming soon to Pokémon GO that will certainly help in ensuring all players keep in the loop in a single, easy-to-view page.
Also dubbed ‘Today View’, players will just need to navigate to the same icon where they often find their Field and Special Research Tasks. The Today View will be added as the first column to the left.
Much like how it works on both iOS and Android versions, Today View will show players any ongoing events, your Pokémon in gyms, your daily streaks, as well as any upcoming event.
If there are multiple ongoing events, there will be separate cards that clearly show each one. Niantic has noted that when Today View first launches, this particular won’t be active until later.
Keeping tracking of which Pokémon is in a gym is much easier now with the feature. Players will be able to see both their motivation level and their duration of stay. It’s also mentioned that you will be able to check with Pokémon have returned and how many PokéCoins they earned for the day.
By far the most convenient feature, in my opinion, is keeping track of daily streaks. Players can sometimes lose track of what their streak is and there’s no way to figure it out until the next day (when they either catch a Pokémon or spin a PokéStop for the day). With that feature, players don’t need to worry about losing track ever again.
Of course, it’s only natural that it also adds a tab to view upcoming events, so players won’t forget and plan ahead for it.
It’s not clear when the feature will be live on Pokémon GO. Our only indication from Niantic is that it’s ‘coming soon’. Assuming Niantic’s schedule, it’ll likely arrive within the next few days, or within a week or two.
