Pokemon Go updated for iOS and Android; no this is NOT the update you're waiting for
The update that was pushed out yesterday rolls out the game to eight new markets. Those include Bahrain, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. Those living in these countries can head to the Google Play Store now and install the game. The update also includes a fix for a bug that allowed the Egg-hatching cutscene animation to be visible from the map view. In addition, minor text flaws were corrected.
Adding the additional new markets should result in a flood of new Pokemon Go players in the Middle East. With the addition of these markets, the number of Pokemon Go players should show some growth in the weeks ahead.
