On November 7, Niantic announced about reschedule of the first Stronger United Brilliant Event Part 1. The delay appears to be due to ongoing technical issues with the 2.6.0 update specific to Android devices. The global start of the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will now be kicked off from November 12th PT and will extend till November 19th PT.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite version 2.6.0 had been rolled out on November 7. Post it, both Android and iOS device players reported problems while accessing in-game menus and unresponsive buttons on the map view.
Some enthusiasts found a temporary workaround to challenges by implementing the age-old tactic of removing the app and installing again. But it didn’t work for all. Fans are ready to wait even longer for Niantic to provide a “permanent fix” to all the major issues, though Niantic affirmed that it “may not resolve the issue for everyone.”
