Pokemon Go developer Niantic confirmed earlier this month that AR-Portrait mode will be introduced for the popular Android game. This feature is called "Go Snapshot" and allows players to capture AR photos with the app. This feature is now available for Pokemon Go on Android devices.
Keep in mind that the Go Snapshot feature is only available to players or is a level 5 or higher trainer. This means that you can not start the game from scratch and use this feature. You need to go out and walk around to catch a Pokémon when you can take AR photos with your favorite monster.
It was already possible to use the app to see the Pokémon you see in the wild. However, this feature allows you to use the app to capture photos of the Pokemon that you have already taken with the real world as a background. You do this by throwing a pokeball towards the desired background. It is also possible to let the Pokemon interact with real objects.
As previously mentioned, this feature is now available for the Android version of the game. Niantic did not say when the feature will be released for iOS. "Trainers on other devices, stay tuned!" That means, hopefully it will not take too long.
