Niantic hires dev team behind gameplay sharing platform Lowkey

"Our long-term vision is to create even deeper connections across Niantic games."

Niantic has hired the team behind gameplay recording and sharing app Lowkey to accelerate its social experiences.

Lowkey is described as a "social gaming platform" that lets users capture and share gameplay moments with ease.

Niantic said it and Lowkey share a common vision for "building community around shared experiences," and the two teams will now work together to build new social tools that contribute to that goal.

"Our long-term vision is to create even deeper connections across Niantic games and continue bringing people together in the physical world," reads a Niantic blog.

"We look forward to bringing the Lowkey team onboard to build the future of Niantic social experiences, and make a positive impact on people's lives."

2021 has been a busy year for Niantic. Earlier this month, the Pokemon Go developer netted $300 million to create a "real-world metaverse" and made its AR tech available for licensing.

Prior to that, the company launched Pikmin Bloom, announced the closure of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, and purchased developer experience company Hoss.
