Pokemon GO finally counts your steps while offline

Niantic today announced a new component for Pokemon GO named “Adventure Sync” — a elevated name for a very single component: step tracking.

Specifically_ Adventure Sync will archives your walking interval in the background_ even if youre doing other things with your phone. Up to now_ the only way for the app to track your steps_ which was a searching part of advancing gameplay_ was with your phone awake and the app open or use the Pokemon Go Plus tracker.
