Pokémon GO Buddy Widget Feature Now Available!

Pokemon GO Buddy Widget in Action

Niantic has just dropped a new Buddy Widget Feature for Pokémon GO! Now you can track your progress wherever you are.

The Pokémon GO Buddy Widget feature is out now for both Android and iOS devices. The developers say it works best when you have Adventure Sync enabled.

This new feature will let you add your Buddy Pokémon to your device’s home screen, so you can keep track of them without opening the game!

This is a great quality of life update for those who want to keep track of their steps, hatching eggs, or earning Buddy candy!
