Pokemon Go Microsoft Download: Install On Microsoft Phones Like Nokia Lumia

Pokémon Go is the latest must-have app for Android and iOS users. Unfortunately, those wishing to play on their Windows Phone devices might feel somewhat left out. While many people are happily progressing through the augmented reality smash-hit, Windows phone users are quickly becoming alienated. The rising frustration among those without an appropriate device to enjoy the game has led potential players to petition Niantic, urging them to release the game on Windows smartphones.pokemon go microsoft download

The company has not responded to any pleas as of yet, and it seems an official release is unlikely in the near future. However, all hope isn’t lost because you can still play the game on Windows using a third-party app called PoGo-UWP.


What exactly is the PoGo App?

The app was released by a developer named Kaankehh who decided to respond the pleas of countless Microsoft Windows phone users. Game & Guide recently reported that the thousands signing the official petition was the impetus for the app’s creation. However, Niantic recently updated Pokémon Go blocking players using PoGo from connecting to their servers.PoGo App

Luckily, Kaankehh posted in their private blog that they are now working on an update that will override Niantic’s. This means that people will once again be able to play the game on their Windows Phone.


Changes Introduced in the Update

As promised, the new PoGo update brought in many changes to make the gameplay experience hassle-free. Some changes you will notice in Pokémon Go now are:

  • Capture page has been changed allowing users to flick the Poké Ball to make a throw
  • There’s a new profile page showing achievements
  • A new detail Page where you can see your Pokémon stats, power up, and also evolve Pokémon
  • Added various language options
  • Added Google login
  • User Inference has been improved
  • Added separate inventory for Pokémon and eggs
  • Added device spoofing to make your Windows phone compatible with the application

While there are still known issues, most of the problems have now been solved.
