Ingress 2.85.* Release Notes

edited November 29 in Release Notes

Bug Fixes

• Fixed: Inventory remembers your last-viewed tab, so reopening Inventory can reopen the Portal Keys tab.

• Fixed: Immediately using a Power Cube after deploying a Boost does not hide the XM meter.


2.85.1: iOS release

2.85.2: Android release

    Pretty small update.

    Any updates on what is happening with all that empty space on the main menu?

    Or the lag?

  • mortuusmortuus ✭✭✭✭✭

    maybe niantic social comes soon ?

  • How about integrating the long screenshot option in Android 12?

  • Oh goodie another one of these "Meh !!!" Updates,why cant niantic take on the communitys feedback and build a list of fixes/changes that are actually being reported & deploy them in one go not just 1 full core version update for 2 patches.

    Theres loads of ongoing issues that need to be addressed and while they may not be easy to code & fix id feel better seeing 10 seperate fixes per new core version to cheer up 10+ users.

    It will start to show your Agents that we are being listened to but alas it doesnt seem that way at all.

  • Sry guys, but that's good for one thing only - dropping keys.

    Please, is the key drop that often? It's confusing more than it helps.

    Everytime I open inventory I'm in keys because I recharged Smth before, but then I need to delete smth from inv or hide items to capsules...

    Can you at least make it configurable?

    Simple checkbox "persistent inventory tabs" would really help 😉

  • Hehehe 😂 it's called "doing their job properly" 😉😂😂😂😂

    But yeah, it's nice start, after 9 years 😂😂

  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    I dislike this “fix”. I prefer the inventory when I open the inventory.

  • @NianticBrian @NianticThia has this release been halted as i havent seen it in my app store yet and its been 8 days since the annoucement.

    Does anyone else have it yet ???

  • What is the diffirence to 2.85.1?

  • mortuusmortuus ✭✭✭✭✭

    for such a small update it sure takes forever to get the update, why is it always so long delay from when u announce update to when u see it in store? it shouldnt take this long

  • The first "fix" is not a fix. It only makes Prime even harder to use after agents have gotten used to having items visible after opening the inventory. How about you fix the issue where the items view doesn't remember its location after using capsules for example? That would be an actual bug fix.

    The second one I haven't encountered, but it seems so obscure it gets fixed when the basic features of the game are still not working. How about fixing something worthwhile for a change?

    Yet another update that breaks Prime even more and makes agents' lives harder...

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭✭

    Maybe the devs have decided to skip this update, and bundle it with 2.86.x?

    US just had a holiday. Everyone on the Ingress team needs a holiday.

  • mortuusmortuus ✭✭✭✭✭

    Then info should be posted so we dont have to guess

  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    2.85.1 is what I have installed on iOS. There is no 2.85.2 update. Maybe that's Android only? It would really help if the Niantic people would actually tell us about these things. I'd like to know what happens when they do decide to tell us...

  • my phone still says Ingress 2.84.1 :S i'd...recommend telling when you're going to drop support for an older version of Android/iOS ...

  • jontebulajontebula ✭✭✭✭✭

    No update in Google Play Store.

  • ToxoplasmollyToxoplasmolly ✭✭✭✭✭

    On Android, I believe Niantic has been going with staged rollouts for quite some time now, likely because they got burned one too many times by releasing updates to everyone with game-breaking bugs.

    For a small update such as this one, I'd just wait and chill. It doesn't sound like you're missing much if you don't have it. 🤷‍♂️

  • InvestigateXMInvestigateXM ✭✭✭✭✭

    Rollout on Android seems to have started in staged phases, it seems like. I'm on 2.85.2 already, no idea when it released, but it doesn't feel different from 2.85.1.

  • Hi all -

    I don't have an update on the status of the rollout; I'll see if I can find that out first thing this morning.

    From what I know; they are the same release just different versions for iOS vs Android:

    2.85.1 - iOS release

    2.85.2 - Android release

  • InvestigateXMInvestigateXM ✭✭✭✭✭

    While that's possible, there has been a 2.85.1 update for Android as well, so it seems like there was a bug that was severe enough to stop rollout, fix it and bump the version from .1 to .2

  • Still cant understand devs side.For example i use apkmirror and dislike new aab gplay system.Why not give link to official apk?Ingress always was a such thing not for casual user so why this happens? Or give at least one version 2.** release not asking for update. Really,this "bugfixes" update seems enough un-understanable,despite of devs work.Tiring for update lurking.

  • So,my Moto One Power and Pixel2 and Redmi9 all became iOs thanks to apkmirror(2-85-1)?

    Thanks,magical news xD

  • Fixed?

    Now I cannot exit key cap, every time I enter a key cap I'm put back into that cap when choosing inventory,

    Forced to close ingress & restart @NianticThia
