Welcome to the world of Ingress Prime, Agent. The fate of this universe, and perhaps others, depends on you. The discovery of Exotic Matter (XM), a resource of unknown origin, has sparked a covert struggle between two Factions. Cutting-edge XM technologies have completely transformed the Ingress Scanner, and it is now waiting for you to join this battle. THE WORLD IS YOUR GAME Explore the world around you and interact with places of cultural significance—such as public art installations, landmarks, and monuments—to collect valuable resources using your Ingress Scanner. CHOOSE A SIDE Fight for the Faction you believe in. Harness the power of XM to evolve mankind and discover our true destiny with The Enlightened, or protect humanity from a hostile takeover of the mind with The Resistance. BATTLE FOR CONTROL Dominate territories by linking Portals and creating Control Fields to achieve victory for your Faction. WORK TOGETHER Strategize and communicate with fellow Agents in your neighborhood and around the world. Agents must be over 13 years old (for residents outside of the European Economic Area); or over 16 years old or such age needed to consent to the processing of personal data in the Agent's country of residence (for residents of the European Economic Area). Unfortunately, no children may play Ingress.




  • It got worse?!

    By Booski62005
    Well, the actual app has gotten somewhat better, still not to the level I was hoping Prime would be at launch. So, if you’re still trying to iron out the issues with the new app, what’s the next logical step? Decide to shut down the old app of course! And not only that, but with the new anomalies, I’m sure you can find rants anywhere about that, I don’t need to talk about it here (Niantic only cares about that 💰).
  • It’s Really That Bad

    By Sweetoothtkc
    Yes, using it is really that terrible. The old version was fine and this is bad. There’s nothing more to it than that.
  • Keep updating the old client please

    By Egor Ka
    Still believe that old Ingress client app should be updated and this unfortunate UI experiment should be sunset, not the other way around.
  • No longer a simple, user friendly interface

    By Millificent P.
    I’m a long time Ingress player who was accustomed to the original now ‘redacted’ scanner. It was simple and straightforward to use. The Prime scanner is anything but easy to use, and a big drain on battery life. No longer a fan.
  • It’s time to move on

    By HarleyQuinn42
    Ingress became a way of life for many when it came out back in 2012. The communities and adventures made because of this app are beyond belief. However, there were problems in redacted with the actual game play and with the revamping because of the switch to unity, most agents have been left heartbroken and discouraged. You can’t see a thing, takes forever to do the most basic tasks and eat battery like no other. It wasn’t perfect in redacted but never once did I hear someone say they wanted new animations and longer lag. The inability to play on remote portals for a reasonable about of data usage changes the global game. It’s time to move on
  • Wow.

    By entertainmentjunky
    Prime should be a case study in how to kill a good game. Take a flawed, but much loved game. Release a new UI that is almost unusable, and pretend it is really really awesome! Rerelease the original UI to staunch the bleeding just long enough to “fix” the new one. Then arbitrarily re-kill the original UI because, well, Prime is just so awesome. It really really is. Only took me 30 minutes to log in today, it killed the battery on my phone an hour later, and I still have no idea what the hell I have in my inventory... can’t wait to see how them unimprove it next!!!
  • Every tap now causes vibration

    By Realdasho
    With this most recent update, every tap now causes device vibrations. It is not only very irritating and an additional, unnecessary battery drain, it’s also very confusing and disorienting because prior to this update there were only vibrations to alert the user that something was happening, like being attacked by an enemy portal. Please change it back or create an option to turn off the superfluous vibrations. Also, there needs to be a way to earn CMU by playing the game (without the need to purchase it) or another way to obtain frackers and beacons.
  • The “New” App is awful!!!!

    By Savvy Jay
    I’ve been playing this game for 4 years and I’ve had an Awesome time!! I discovered so many new places and met some great people along the way. It’s been my daily app for fun and navigating around looking for new portals. This new app is awful!!! The map and portals are terrible to view. It’s so difficult to see anything and now the Scanner Redacted has now been DELETED! I’m out.. this really stinks because I’ve had so much fun playing this game over 4 years. Now I feel like I just wanted my time. Such a huge disappointment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Can't create account without Facebook or Google

    By BlahQ1248111622
    When I try to sign up, the only options presented are "create an account with Facebook" or "create an account with Google." I don't want to increase my reliance on either of those companies, and I don't want to give Niantic my social media information. Why is there no option to create an account with an email and password?
  • Prime is the superior scanner

    By Bonekrunch
    Many of the “problems” with Prime have been fixed over the past several months. There are numerous improvements to the UI compared to the old scanner. Linking is faster and glyphing is faster on Prime. I think a lot of the whining I see about Prime is a bunch of old school players who are resistant to change. It only took me a week to learn the new UI and within two weeks, the old scanner seemed clunky and slow in comparison.
