Pokemon Go AR Bug and How to Turn it Off

We had a big Pokemon GO update yesterday, which added the new Gen 4 Pokemon. But with these new things, a new bug came – an unwanted AR. Over here at FGR, we have found a fix for this, so keep on reading to find out!

When you open Pokemon GO for the first time after the update, you should get a notification if you would like to try out AR+. We clicked on NO, but despite this, the AR mode was activated. The app did not have any camera permission, so we saw a white void instead of the common Pokemon world.

Here is what we think would fix the bug:

  • Exit the Pokemon GO app and reopen it.
  • After you restarted the app, you should head to Settings and turn the AR+ mode off. You might need to restart the app again though.
  • If any of this does not work, log out of Pokemon GO and then log back in. Head over to Settings to make sure if AR+ mode is turned off.
  • Even if these steps do not work, we suggest uninstalling the Pokemon GO app and restart your phone before installing the app.

Some users don’t have the AR mode toggle in settings. If you are in this ‘group,’ the above mentioned wouldn’t work – you just have to wait until Niantic fixes the bug, or even better, try to contact them here and find out what to do next.

For last, check if your Android device supports AR+ mode here.
