Splatoon 2 is the first game that will be compatible with the app, and the features it has give us an idea of the kind of things it’ll be used for in the future. Via the Switch App, Splatoon 2 players can use Splatnet 2 — which gives them access to a number of functions for the game.

Working in tandem with your Switch via your MyNintendo account, you can chat with your friends via text and voice, send friend requests, and organize online gaming groups. It seems like an intuitive service, and is a helpful way to keep friends updated on what you’re playing.

Unfortunately, the service itself isn’t available just yet, as it’s currently undergoing maintenance. We believe it’ll be up in time for Splatoon 2‘s release, but there’s no indication just yet as to when those services will be live.

Make sure to keep an eye on Gameskinny, as we’ll update you on any further developments regarding the Nintendo Switch app. To download the app on your device, visit the Apple Store or Google Play.
