Pokémon go is getting ads
In this article from tech crunch we find that Pokémon go is going to be getting advertising in the form of promoted locations. This does make sense and it could be very useful for local businesses.
Of course it would have to be the right business but it is obviously just a glimpse of things to come as more and more games will be released in augmented reality and probably other applications that we have not even thought of yet.
I wonder how long it will be before ad words has augmented reality ads. Pokémon go already uses Google maps as does Waze which is not exactly augmented reality but still a part of the general mobile landscape .
