I apologise if this has been asked previously but I cannot find any updated information online since 2015.
I understand the submission of portals has been removed from ingress but have they given any news regarding their development of an improved feature? Are all niantics developers busy with pokemon now and they don't care about the game? The town I am in has quite a few portals but it's a pretty low density of portals compared to some of the towns which are close by. I'd quite like to improve that if possible.
Let me know if you have any updated information, thanks.
Edit: Apologies for writing a question which was classified as off-topic. I should have read the guidelines a bit better.
