The latest Harry Potter: Wizards Unite update is SWEET! Check out these highlights:

- Potions will work across Encounters and Fortress Foes!
Let’s dig into the details of this 2.6.0 update in Wizards Unite.
Wizards Unite Updates
Discover everything new in Wizards Unite!
A new Brilliant Event is coming soon. Stay tuned for details!
Potions that last for more than 1 spell cast will now work across Encounters! This means that if you use an Exstimulo Potion and return the Foundable on the first spell cast, the Exstimulo will work on the next Trace you tap!
This will also work in Wizarding Challenges. If you defeat a Foe and still have uses left on a Potion, it will apply to the next Foe.
Ministry ID Portrait
You will now default to your current portrait instead of the camera feed when editing your portrait so you do not have to take a new picture to view new stickers, frames, filters, or lenses.
The Pixie Oddity Encounter will now feature Photo Mode. Be creative with your AR photography!
You will now see a message pop up on your screen when you have completed a Daily Task, an Achievement, or a Quest.

As always, the HPWU developers continue to work hard at eliminating bugs in the game.
Fixed an issue with nodes on a player’s Profession skill tree being badged even when the player does not have the items needed for an upgrade.
