Pokemon Go: How to Turn on PokeStop Scan
Trainers at lower levels can now enable this feature!
This PokeStop Scan feature gives trainers the ability to take and upload videos of the real-world locations that are attached to PokeStops in Pokemon Go, in order to help Niantic, the game’s developer, create a 3D map of those spots.
Now, the PokeStop Scan feature has been expanded, making it available to trainers who have reached at least Level 20.
If you’re interested in trying the PokeStop Scan feature on your account, here’s how to enable it!
On the game’s main map, tap the Poke Ball icon at the bottom of the screen.
Scroll down until you see the “Enable PokeStop Scan” option, and then tap the circle to the right of it so that it’s filled in with a check mark.
