Striking a pose with your favourite Pokemon can be fun; however, a number of users have been facing issues while using this Pokemon Go snapshot feature. So, if you have been facing any such issue, here are some quick fixes you need to check out.

Pokemon GO does not detect camera orientation or AR mode

If you are an Android user, and facing this problem, you need to head to the camera permissions for Pokemon GO app and grant all the required permissions. Go to your phone Settings > Applications. Search for the Pokemon GO app; open it and click on the 'Permissions' option to open 'App Permissions'. Now, grant access to your phone camera by simply turning it ON. This will likely fix the issue.

For iOS users, the issue is mostly with the Pokemon GO camera orientation. The issue essentially crops up when you update the device to iOS 10 Beta 2. So, to resolve the issue, the recommended fix is to simply downgrade to the earlier version which should resolve the problem.
