Pokemon Go is a wildly popular game which you can chasing after cute Pokemon and when you encounter them, you can catch them with your smartphones. It was initially released in selected countries in July 2016. Since its launch, it quickly became a global phenomenon and was one of the most used mobile apps, reportedly having been downloaded by more than 100 million people worldwide.

Multiple governments expressed concerns over the game’s security. Recently, Niantic has updated the game and gotten a minor update today to v0.33 on Android and v1.3 on iOS.
Among other things, the update introduces a new reminder not to play the game while driving a car. The single biggest change: a pop-up message that you’ll have to dismiss if you’re playing in a moving vehicle.

(Never mind that the pop-up itself is yet another driving distraction; personally, I’d much rather Niantic rewarded people for carpooling instead of this temporary annoyance). The patch notes were listed on the official Niantic website and are listed below. In addition to the new reminder not to play while traveling above a certain speed.
