San Francisco has been enjoying exclusivity on the upgraded Nearby and Sightings features of Pokémon Go – until now.
The feature, which shows off which Pokémon are close to which nearby PokéStops, is now available in states west of the Mississippi River (except Hawaii and Alaska) in America, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, the western half of Ontario in Canada, and all of Australia.
After reading your feedback and making some changes, we are expanding the test variation of our Nearby feature. https://t.co/yBy8u9LYkY

In its post detailing the update, Niantic is continuing to refer to the feature as a test, and doesn't offer any hints regarding when the features will be universally available.
