Gotta hatch ‘em all!

Pokémon Go’s new Adventure Sync mode will track distance for hatching eggs and finding buddy candy in the background, Niantic announced today.

Trainers can opt in or out of the new feature and will receive weekly summaries tied to currently unannounced rewards. Adventure Sync connects to Apple Health and Google Fit to integrate with other health and fitness apps.

Players previously looking to track distance outside of the app had to rely on outside accessories, such as the Pokémon Go Plus and Apple Watch.
