A new Pokemon GO update recently dropped and is slowly rolling out to players, and although the update seems feature-light, it actually includes some fairly important improvements. According to an article from Heavy, those changes include some vital optimizations to the game.
First off, Niantic has taken another swing at optimizing connection to the Pokemon GO Plus on Android. Given their track record there, we’ll not hold our breath, but hope for the best. More importantly, the update indicates a fix for the long load times that many Android Pokemon GO players have experienced – some of them for several minutes on older devices.
