Question Wizards Unite - Walking in the game - Active Sync

Do you have to have the app open for it to register how far you’ve walked or can it be running in the background when you’re on other apps, for example? Mine is showing I’ve only walked 1KM and I know I have walked further than that today.

Thanks!

That's a good question.
I'm on the same situation @Treasureflower
The app say I walked less than what my smartband states. Probably wizards unite wasn't in the background all day, but I'm sure it was active most of it 😅
Anyone else know for sure?

Got a reply from @LostMango™ at the discord channel:
I know there is no adventure sync like in Pogo, there really should be
what I noticed you must keep the game on to get the walking time, but my battery stinks so I can only keep it on for 2-3 hours, and I walk slow so yeah I'm no help lol

I’ve noticed in my app on iPhone the location permissions are either only “never” or “only when using the app”. There is no way to Allow this to run in the background which is why the app needs to be open to pick up your distance.
If you have a Battery issue I suggest a battery pack! :D

Will there be an active sync function? I know in Pokémon go I was allowed to have it sync with the steps my phone registers while the app isn’t running. I would really like this function in this game as well.

Merci!
So walking for opening portkeys only counts when the game is open... that's quite sad :(
Same for Android ??

I've been walking around for hours and it's not registering on my portkeys. HELP
