If you’ve already added other players to your friends list, adding them in duos and squads is really easy. If you’re like me and don’t have any friends on PUBG Mobile yet, searching for them is easy, too. This guide will quickly go over the steps on how to do each of those things — making that chicken dinner even more juicier than it already is. 

Adding Friends in PUBG Mobile

So how do you add friends on PUBG Mobile? It’s super easy, really. On the home screen, tap the silver silhouette of two people that’s located in the bottom left-hand corner.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll be taken to the lobby screen above where you’ll invite your friends to join your list. Tap the “Add Friends” button on the right-hand side of the screen. You’ll need either a username or a player ID to find each of your friends on PUBG Mobile.

If you don’t already know those names or IDs, you’ll probably need to ask them. If you do know one or the other, enter it in the bar at the top of the screen. Tap the plus icon on the right-hand side of their banner to add them to your friends list. 

Starting Duos and Squads With Your Friends 

To invite and play with friends in squads or duos on PUBG Mobile, all you’ll need to do is return to the main screen (the first picture above) and choose squads or duos from the drop-down menu found under the big yellow “Start” button. 

Once you do that, click the up arrow next to “Invite Friends” (also shown at the bottom of the screen in the first picture above), and you’ll add them by clicking the “+” symbol next to their name(s). 

And that’s all you need to know about adding friends and playing with in squads and duos in PUBG Mobile! Wondering if a gamepad or controller is supported in the mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds? Check out our guide on pairing an input device to your phone!
