Add your friends in Niantic Social to easily send direct and group messages, access their profiles, and invite them to your communities and events!

Adding Friends
  • The “Add Friend” button is available on everyone’s profile. To access someone’s profile, click on their profile icon in a text channel or Direct Message, or via the community members list.
  • Adding a friend on Niantic Social means you add them as a Friend across all Niantic apps.
  • Once you have sent the friend request, you will see a “Pending” message. This will also send a notification to the receiving party.

Removing Friend
  • To remove someone from your Friends List, visit their profile and click on the three dots on the top right. Additionally, you will see options to Block and Report the person.
