Niantic has announced that there has been a few improvements to the Pokemon Go Plus accessory this week. It should help your scouting experience.
Niantic posted the following on the official website: Trainers who search for Pokémon in the real world using the Pokémon GO Plus accessory can now select one of multiple notification modes. Scanning for both PokéStops or Pokémon simultaneously still remains the default setting if you want to try to catch as many Pokémon and collect as many Poké Balls as possible. However, you can also individually enable or disable each of these notifications based on your preference.
In addition, when you are out with your Buddy Pokémon you can choose to not receive notifications, and just record the distance of your walks. Lastly, the Pokémon GO Plus accessory will remain paired with the Pokémon GO app if you choose to use the app while interacting with Pokémon or Gyms.
Niantic is sure to update the game in the near future to add features that many fans have been wanting since it launched back in July. Hopefully popular requests are added to the game very soon. We just have to wait until Niantic is ready to put them in.
