Following the massively successful launch of Splatoon 3, Nintnedo has released a big update for the Nintendo Switch Online (Free) companion app on iOS and Android. This app released back in 2017, and has been updated on and off since. The app wasn’t really worth using at launch, but was good for checking out Nintendo account features like friends online, and also checking out Splatoon features like buying gear. Today, a new update has gone live, version 2.3.0, bringing in support for home screen widgets from Splatoon 3. These let you view your battle logs, current gear, stage rotation schedule, and album of photos from the game. This is available on both iPadOS and iOS. Check out one of the widget options from my iPad Pro below:
If you’ve not gotten Splatoon 3 yet, make sure to read Shaun’s review of it here. Barring the new Splatoon 3 features and widgets, the app still supports for game-specific features in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and more with voice chat if you don’t have access to another device with Discord. If you’d like to try out the Nintendo Switch Online app, you can download it here on the App Store for iOS and here on Google Play for Android. Do you subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online and what did you think of the recent Expansion Pack games if you tried those out?
