It’s another app to manage, sure, but one that likely should have been built into Pokemon Go anyway. The team behind the game, Niantic Labs (formerly of Google), had similar functionality with Ingress.
In fact, Pokemon Go is a lot like Ingress, save for the chat feature. It’s not clear whether or not Nintendo asked that a chat functionality be left out, or if the two companies simply never thought to build it. Chat may also come to Pokemon Go in a future update, which would be welcome.
