"Wizards Unite is a solid effort at adapting the familiar formula of Pokémon Go to the magical world of Harry Potter."
The new feature will record your steps even when the app is closed and synchronize it to Apple Health and Google Fit.
Some of the upcoming events include a community day and a week-long event themed around the legendary headmaster of Hogwarts.
Niantic Labs is hosting a special event for players which provides XP bonuses as well as more potent potions.
Want to earn some neat bonuses while playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite? The Community Day event is now live, offering some treats for all the game's players.
Hundreds of thousands downloaded the new AR game, but it's nowhere near as popular as Pokémon Go was at launch.

It's being developed with Warner Bros.
