Pokemon Go is getting an update before the Pokemon Go Feast Event. The event is held to mark the first anniversary of the augmented reality app that made people get off their chairs and join a gym (not literally). The update should be available for both, iOS and Android. Since Microsoft themselves have decided to abandon Windows Phone, we don’t think Windows Phone users should hold their breath to see the game on their platform. The latest update is version 0.69.0 on Android and 1.39.0 on iOS. 

The update for both, iOS and Android brings the following
Added icons to the Pokémon information screen to indicate how the Pokémon was caught.
Added the ability for Trainers to spin the Photo Disc at a Gym after completing a Raid Battle.
Added the ability for Trainers to send Berries to their Pokémon defending Gyms through the Pokémon info screen when they are not nearby. Motivation regained will be less effective through this method.
Added the ability for Trainers to give Berries to Pokémon defending Gyms if their motivation meter is full.
Improved Pokémon Collection screen search functionality.
Fixed an issue where Trainers were unable to complete Raid Battles started before time expired on the map view.
Fixed an issue where Pokémon are not properly returned to their Trainer after defending a Gym.
Various bug fixes.
