A similar approach applies to Pokemon Go. No matter if you do not know how to enable the camera on Pokemon Go. You can still play the game. But when you need the camera, you will be able to turn it on.

As an expert gamer, I know many beginners struggle with is issue, in particular. And they cannot get the pleasures of complete gaming.

Don’t worry. I am here with the solution. Let’s explore the details here.

What is Pokemon Go

You will be surprised to know that Pokemon Go is an AR game. And that is for your mobile phone. Usually, the augmented reality (AR) games are suitable for other platforms. But this time, you will get an immersive experience.

The game was developed in 2016 and is available for both iOS and Android operating systems.

Gamers prefer this game for exciting adventures and real-world locations. Most importantly, the game is free for the players. However, you may need to purchase some additional items for the level-up and other needs.

This game has over 600 Pokemon species.

However, despite several positive aspects, the game had some criticisms. But the download has crossed billions!

How to enable the camera on Pokemon Go?

It is a pretty simple process. You need less hassles to do this.

But you know, I had to undergo troubles as I did not have any mentor, at that time. So, I learned the process almost by myself and alone.

As I had some technical know-how, I tried to figure out what were the needed things. Therefore, I followed the steps I mentioned here.

Step 1

Launch the settings

This is the first step – that I came to know after lots of struggles.

You need to go to the Settings option of your device. No matter what type of phone you use, you will have this option. Find out the Camera option.

Step 2

Now, check if the Pokemon Go is on. If it is not on, turn it on. In this way, you are permitting the camera to remain operational during the gameplay.

The method above is for the Android operating system.

But when you are using iOS, you need to follow almost the same steps.

Check the settings of the phone, and bring out the app section. And allow the camera to function when you play Pokemon Go.

Well. You have gained the knowledge within a few moments. But it took hours of experiments for me.

What you must know about the game?

Remember one fact. This is an AR game. So, when you enter the AR gaming mode, the camera will not be detected automatically.

You must help the game to detect the camera, manually.

This is the key reason behind the failure of the game. And many gamers are deprived of the thrilling moments of this AR game.

You know, many of the apps are now associated with the camera. So, if those apps are not synced with the camera, they will not function.

A similar theory is applicable to Pokemon Go.

When the camera for this app is not turned on, you cannot use the camera features during the gameplay.

Isn’t that simple?
