You can download the Nintendo Switch Online App now for iOS and Android devices, but you'll have to wait until Splatoon 2 releases on Friday to make use of it. This app can be used for several features, starting with game-specific services for Splatoon 2 and voice chat for Splatoon 2's online lounge.
It's also important to note that if you close the application, for whatever reason, you'll be booted from voice chat.More news: Toronto actor Mena Massoud cast in Disney's live action remake of 'Aladdin'
To set up a voice chatroom for Splatoon 2, you have to open the game and head to the online multiplayer menu, then go to Online Lounge, and select Create Room. Check out the most recent trailer and see if strikes a cord in you. That is to say that by 2018, the company will be charging a subscription fee for the Nintendo Switch Online app, which is why players are advised to download it as soon as they can. Given all that comes with the Nintendo Switch Online app, it seems that the tech giant is looking to promote teamwork as one of the key features of its much-loved flagship console. Fortunately, the app lets you send a message through other apps such as WhatsApp and LINE. The Switch Online app will then give you the choice to invite friends you've added on your Switch, users you've recently played with, or just friends you have from other social networks - so long as they also have the Switch Online app.
You can use SplatNet 2 to check all sorts of vital battle-related information, including match results, stages, and rankings!
Other games will offer different functionality, but you can probably expect them all to be roughly similar, with a mix of stats, in-game info, and a few fun cosmetic perks.
