This is Campfire, Niantic’s new social application to get together with other players in person more easily

Niantic video games have a great social component by having to meet other people to participate in certain activities. In order to further facilitate this task, it has presented the campfire appa tool with which the company is sure that it will be easier to meet other players and places that are close to us.

After going through a beta phase in Ingress, the application is now officially available, but for the moment only in Germany on the occasion of the Pokémon GO Fest in Berlin, although it is expected to end up being published on devices in the rest of the world throughout the next few months.

Once the application is opened, a map of the area in which we are at that moment will appear in it, along with the different Niantic games. Simply click on any of them to access the channels, experiences and activities that are being carried out at that moment in order to have a clearer idea of ​​where other users are playing.

For example, one of its functions will be that of Communities, from which we can join one to talk, coordinate and meet other players. Likewise, there will also be a list of friends so that we can check what they are doing and you can even send direct messages and groups, in case someone wants to share photos or organize Raids.

In this way, in Pokémon GO it will no longer be necessary to go to a specific place to see if there are people there or not. Sharing the location or launching a signal in the application itself will be enough to warn players to approach the location in question to join forces in those fights that require the presence of several people.
