You can finally download the Nintendo Switch multiplayer comms app

There is a lot of untapped potential with the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Online app. Users also have the option to pay $3.99 for a monthly subscription, or $7.99 for a 3-month subscription.

What is Nintendo Switch Online? Said app wasn't available to download at launch, but you can grab it right now.

The Nintendo Switch doesn't make you go through a lengthy start-up process filled with network management, update downloads, and bandwidth checks. Invitations can be sent over social media like Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Line.

Other uses for Splatnet includes tracking which online multiplayer stages will be rotated in over the next 24 hours.

The Nintendo Switch app is a big change for Nintendo, but the company is still committed to doing things differently to its competitors.

The app's release comes just two days before "Splatoon 2" launches.

When the service launches, players will no longer be able to play multiplayer games with their friends and are thus required to purchase membership to continue playing. Chat with everyone in your room or split voice chat into teams and have it out head-to-head!

To get started, simply fire up the app and link your Nintendo account. We've had pieces of information released to us over the last few months, but now we know more as Nintendo has released a FAQ and some users have gotten their hands on it.

Unfortunately, the app doesn't seem to work yet. From there, you'll be taken to a home screen that lets you view any pending invitations and access game-specific services, which are now limited to Splatoon 2. But now, the app is here and - while limited - it works with Splatoon 2. GameSpot and Polygon both gave the game an 8 out of 10, while US Gamer and GamesRadar both gave it a 4 out of 5. In fact, Splatoon 2 isn't due to arrive until July 21st, this Friday. While I've played plenty of Splatoon 2 on the couch, I've also found myself getting in matches while doing everything from making coffee in the morning to waiting for my kids to finish their bath at night. It takes the outline provided by Splatoon and inks in the gaps, fleshing out an already fabulous game with needed balancing fixes, new weapons and maps, a new campaign, and new game modes. This means that the app is not just a handy second-screen device; it is a necessary tool for any player who wants to have a full-featured online gaming experience on the Switch.
