Plans to use Niantic ID and Niantic Social
Dear Niantic team.
I'd like to ask the Wayfarer team a question.
Are there any plans to use Niantic ID and Niantic Social in Wayfarer (Lightship)?
As you know, Niantic is beginning to roll out its own approved ID and SNS.
In the future, you can expect to see a login tool that covers all of the games that Niantic produces, and a dedicated SNS that integrates the current game forums.
Harry Potter and Ingress have already launched, and players are beginning to use them in a variety of ways through trial and error, and Pokémon GO will launch soon.
In the early days of Ingress, it was possible to link to Google+, the SNS of Google's parent company at the time, and when linked, it automatically linked to Hangouts, Google's instant messenger service.
And even though these tools are no longer available, they still have a strong influence on the Ingress community.
It is also expected to be a long-awaited tool for Pokémon GO, which has never had a dedicated forum or community SNS. It is expected to be a long-awaited tool for Pokémon GO, which has never had a dedicated forum or community SNS, and it is expected to play a role in connecting the Pokémon GO communities, which have been scattered and disorganized.
This may also lead to the launch of a dedicated Pokémon GO forum, which has been written about many times in this forum.
Wayfarer (Lightship) is expected to promote fairer discussions.
Until now, users have logged in with their game IDs, but there have been a number of cases over the years where users have actually logged in with accounts they haven't used (Ingress_AG logged in with their Pokémon GO account, Pokémon GO Trainers logged in with their Ingress account) and participated in discussions, contributing to unnecessary friction.
I'm not saying that this will solve all such cases, but it is expected to reduce unnecessary friction.
Also, linking to Niantic IDs would allow us to integrate not only review grades, but also recommendation grades.
The AMA is already over, but I would be happy to hear about your future plans.
