Ingress 2.69.1 Release Notes
CordialWombat Niantic › admin
• Updated the Layers button with a temporary placeholder for a new layer, coming soon!
• Added a `Refresh` button to Settings menu > Subscriptions to help Agents who might be seeing an account-specific issue with their C.O.R.E. renewal.
• Fixed: COMM should open the most recent update first, without jumping to the oldest update when a new alert or activity comes in.
• Fixed: Portal Scans on iOS should no longer softlock the app after tapping Upload Now or Upload Later.
Also hello to new Niantic person!
Nice comm fix🥳
Drone Layers please?
I'm really intrigued by what the new layer is 🤔
Also, hello @CordialWombat! I believe this is our first time meeting, at least here on the forums?
So it took only two and a half years to start fixing that design abomination that has been killing the Ingress community, player engagement and situational awareness in a game that had community and constant engagement with the game environment as their main selling points?
Will it take another two and a half years to give us back a COMM with decent information density or is Niantic hoping to have alienated enough remaining player by then so they can pull the plug?
Hello, @ikaros02 , @InvestigateXM and ING fam! I've been on the team since 2019, but today was the first time I've posted release notes - hope you like them! :D
Take the win, for at least 5 minutes. 🤣
Oh absolutely, the COMM fix has been highly anticipated after all.
Thank you for making your first appearance, bringing good news 🤩
Comm fix is quite nice.
New layer button, guessing it might be Drone Visits. Just a guess.
Wondering what other things might have been fixed/added/removed.
А де обнова-то в плеймаркете 2.68.2 до сих пор как бэ
Glad to read that you have fixed the problem with portal scans on iOS!! I really want to try it!!
Many have waited long time for buggy comm finally to be fixed 👌
new admin on forum🥳🥳🥳
I do hope it's a true comm fix this time 😋 would be great if it works like intended. Looking forward to the update
A drone layer, huh? 👀
Question then is, what colour will the circle be?
cant be purple, maybe blue or green ?
I place my bets on white
Seems comm can be still buggy. First time it is really on its end,but then it can open not at the end but at the last viewed place.
Тут лучше инглиш использовать.
Play market updates can be late for few days due to "staged rollout".
IDK how this glitch become,was trying to refresh comm
I'm thinking pink like the Hypercube bar.
More bugs: map and item pictures can disappear till restart.
I'm still hoping to get the layers on "inverted" mode, since I find it much more useful to see the unvisited/uncaptured ones, the brand-new, instead of what I already visited.
After two days of active gameplay i preffered to roll back to 2.68.2 release,because alerts tab is much more buggy in actual one.
I just got the update but I'm wondering where the refresh button is? I'm just seeing the Manage button that leads you to the respective OS store.
I dont see it either in my settings, not that i need it my sub is working fine but for those that needs it seems strange...
Comms seems much worse than prior to update. My comms don't update at all for minutes to hours. I can see notifications on the top of my scanner, but when I go to comms everything is out of date and there's no loading. I either have to keep changing the distance and eventually it seems to trigger an update, or restart the app.
If comm get fix in this version it will be awesome. The way comm acts now it almost make me want to quit playing. I hope its fixed.
