Pokémon Go feature records walking even when app is closed

Adventure Sync is coming soon.

The official website for Pokémon Go has revealed a brand new feature coming soon to the mobile game, as Adventure Sync will let you record your walking distances even when the game isn't launched, letting you earn Candy and hatch eggs, among other things.

What's more is that you'll get a weekly summary as part of this, showing you your Incubator and Candy progress alongside other statistics, like kilometers recorded. Rewards can be earned for each milestone you reach, and you get push notifications when your buddy Pokémon has found a Candy or when an egg hatch is imminent.

You can opt into the Adventure Sync feature at any time, which can even connect to Apple Health and Google Fit too. As for a release window though, all we got was a "coming soon".

Is this a game-changer?
