Everyone knows how popular Pokemon GO has become in just a few short weeks, but the game is far from perfect. At its current state, there’s a lot left to be desired. One of the common requests is the ability to communicate with nearby players. Of course, you can talk to nearby players IRL when you meet at a Pokestop or Gym, but what about all the other nearby players?
Razer, the gaming hardware company, has created a chat app for Pokemon GO called RazerGo. The web version will be launching tonight (7/20) at 10 PM ET. An Android app will be released sometime next week. RazerGo will allow players to communicate with players inside a radius of 3, 6, or even 600 miles. Chats can be public, private to the three teams, or private among players. It will also be possible to create IRL chatrooms with “Beacons” that can be dropped anywhere on the map. Anyone that finds the beacon can leave a message.
It will be interesting to see if RazerGo is adopted by many Pokemon GO players. It will only be useful if people in your area start using it. Hopefully, the conversations can still civil and friendly. Will you try RazerGo when it launches?
