The Pokemon GO Nearby feature has rolled out to “most regions of the world.”

Last week, Niantic Labs made the feature available in the United States, and large parts of Europe.

Now, it has now been expanded to most regions of the world where players can access the App Store or Google Play.

Not only can more users test the feature, but the development team has made some changes to the way the Nearby Pokemon feature functions when there are only few PokeStops in the player’s range.

The team said these changes should make the experience “better when searching for Pokemon in the real world.”

Niantic said it will continue to “review the feedback” submitted through official social media accounts and will make changes if necessary.
