Pokemon Go : PvP battles invites not working after update 0.157.0

Niantic has released a new update 0.157.0 for Pokemon Go. The following list of features has been added to the game under the new update: Music Asset Manager, New Beginner Trainer Boxes, New Shadow Pokemon, and New moves.

However, this update has also brought one bug to the game, which is currently troubling players. With the new update, the game PVP system is broken. Players have not been able to send invites to friends for the PVP battle. Many users also tried to restart the app, but it didn’t work for them.

However, players have found that scanning QR code allows them to connect with other players. Niantic is already aware of this issue, but a fix for the same is yet to arrive. Have a look at some complaints down below regarding this issue.
