Today (Monday, 11 Apr 2022), we're launching Regional Chat in Niantic Social in Ingress 2.91.1. Open the Ingress Main menu > Scores > TOP 3 AGENTS See More > Niantic Social to open Regional Chat for the Scoring Cell you're in, for example AM02-DELTA-01. Any Agent, not just the Top 50, can use this channel to chat with Agents in this Cell-specific Faction chat. Regional Chat can help connect newer Agents who are looking to find others who play Ingress nearby. Note: though the icon is there for cells you are not in, at this time, you can only load the regional chat for the cell in which you are currently located.
Additionally, we're expanding Portal Scan Meshing as an optional feature to more Android devices in Ingress 2.91.1. Meshing helps to visualize what has already been scanned to encourage Agents to continue moving around the Portal, which generates higher quality Portal Scans.
