Latest Pokémon Go update lets trainers catch 'em all on the Android Nougat preview

Those who have been enjoying the Android Nougat preview have felt left out in the Pokémon Go launch aftermath. This is due to the super-popular title failing to work as intended on the beta program. Thankfully, an update has now been released to address this issue. You'll no longer have to downgrade your smartphone to Android 6.x to head out the front door and catch 'em all.

This latest release bumped Pokémon Go up to version 0.29.2, and while it now enables die hard fans to try out the beta of Google's next OS update, we'd recommend caution since it's a preview and things can go wrong elsewhere.

  • OMG....another pokemon go article in Android Central. I am not playing and don't care. Can you guys slow down on the Pokemon go articles or do I need to look elsewhere for my Android news? Posted via the Android Central App
  • It's simple you don't care don't respond. Don't open the article. Scroll and look for articles that interests you. Out of the 1598864 articles I probably looked at 8. Read what articles that interest and live to tell another story to my great great grandchildren. You show know by now AC is gonna do what they want and not what's in your best interest. So if you don't care... Posted via the Android Central App
