Earlier this month, Pokémon GO developer Niantic announced it would be assembling a special "task force" to address player concerns raised about interaction distance.

In its latest post via social media, Niantic has shared a brief update on the situation. While the task force plans are still scheduled for 1st September, the team has decided to take action and change PokéStop and Gym interaction distance from 40 to 80 meters.

In a follow-up tweet, the company acknowledged how the players and game's community had been heard - with more information to be shared next week.

The purpose of the task force, as previously explained, is to develop proposals designed to preserve the game's mission of inspiring people to explore the world together, while addressing the concerns regarding interaction distance.

So, there you have it - 80 meters interaction distance is back. What are your thoughts about these changes? Tell us down below.
