“Our partnership with Niantic not only brings access to the Pokemon GO app but also opens the door to more opportunities for our customers to enjoy content on Jio’s one-of-a-kind mobile broadband network,” added Mathew Oommen, President, Reliance Jio.

The game uses the GPS capabilities of the device in conjunction with Google Maps to “place” creatures in real world locations, which you then try to find using your device as a guide.

Once you are in proximity to the “placed” creature, you then use your device’s camera to “view” the creature and try to “capture” it by throwing “Pokeballs” at it.

“With over 500 million downloads globally, we are excited to launch Pokemon GO officially in Indiaon the Reliance Jio network,” Oommen added. (IANS)
