In order to help aid the transition from Ingress 1.0 once Ingress Prime launches, Ingress 1.0 will be retained as a separate app download and will be renamed as Scanner [REDACTED]. The app will be available within a week for existing Ingress Agents. New account creation will not be possible in Scanner [REDACTED].
We expect feature parity between both apps in 2019, and will also be developing additional improvements as we go forward. We sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm and patience as we continue to work hard towards the next-generation Ingress experience.
