Major update delivers new features and support for new animations, notifications, bug fixes
Ingress, everyone's favorite sci-fi virtual reality simulation game, got a major update this afternoon. Everything you love about the game is still there, with less bugs, but a couple very nice features were added.
- Portal health and faction control info on Portal Keys in the Inventory carousel.
- Android Notifications for "Portal under attack," "Portal neutralized," and "@<codename>" messages.
- Support for Jarvis Virus and ADA Refactor objects.
- New Recharge visual animation.
The new notification system will get all the attention, but the new information displayed about your Portal keys in inventory is probably the change people will use the most. The Jarvis Virus is something new started earlier this month, and it will flip an infected Portal to the opposing faction.
You can get today's update from the Google Play link above, and learn more about Ingress (and try to score an invite) in the Ingress forums.
