Device: Galaxy S21 Ultra Exynos 2100
The whole of Niantic Social is over sized with no settings to reducing it to a reasonable size.
It is currently unusable like this.
@NianticBrian this is the bug I mentioned.
Pretty serious, as it makes unusable
Have same bug and bad resolution and have same mobile S21 Ultra with Exynos and Android 12
Can you share what your Android device's default text size or magnification setting is set to?
As you can see my text size is fairly small
And zoom is at it's lowest level
I have similar problem on Galaxy S20FE Android 12.
It wasn't like that before. Originally sizing was good, but maybe 2-ish weeks ago everything only in Niantic Chat became huge.
The rest of Ingress, other Niantic games and phone in general everything is properly sized as usual.
More critical now, as we can't join in the Q&A tomorrow with this
Just as a workaround until it's fixed, have you guys tried lowering the font size in your phones settings? Someone on Reddit had the same problem and could fix it through that.
Doesn't work, my text size is already pretty small
Ie if font size is any smaller, text is less legible.
Any updates on getting this fixed?
Hello? Niantic? Are you reading this? Your chat is unusable with giant fonts.
If you want people to accept and start using it, how about how attention at fixing reported bugs or AT LEAST some sort of feedback?
@NianticThia last I heard was that it was being looked into 2 weeks ago
Any further news on this?
I have asked the Niantic Social team for info.
Hey all! Apologies for the delay on responding here. It’s a bug related to some Samsung phones’ issues with a library that we use. Some related threads are linked below.
Here's the bug:
It's not specific to Niantic Social; happens in other games too:
From what we can tell, the fix is to install the Samsung Game Booster Plus app, as pointed out here in comment 49:
That's not a fix. That's a workaround.
I never used the app in the first place to change games' resolution. I don't even have it installed on my phone anymore. I refuse to use it because I don't agree with the app's terms of service. I uninstalled it to save my phone's battery life and memory due to niantic's games taking up so much RAM.

I can't get pass the agreement page. Any single or multi-touching have no effect and can't scroll.
I can only click open the ToS, Com. Guidelines urls and they call up an external browser.
my "Font size" and "screen zoom" are the same as Grogyan's .
Any fix? It's still broken in Ingress.
I agree! Niantic Social/Campfire is oversized, both on images and text. All my other social apps (Facebook Messenger, Telegram, GroupMe, Discord) look fine. I am using the Samsung Galaxy S20FE.
