Agents, a new version of Ingress Prime scanner is now available on APK Mirror and slowly rolling out on the Play Store and App Store.

Metahub note

Ingress Prime is slowly catching up to the previous Ingress client version, and we’re quite happy to see development progress and improvements. Prime has been off to an unusually rocky start, but we strongly feel that Niantic will bridge the feature gap over the next few months.

On our end, we are eager to cover Prime, but right now we simply lack the manpower to do so. If you are (or know someone who is) a seasoned Ingress veteran, reach out to BoonSlevin or Zeroghan via Discord and let’s talk! 🙂
