As part of its ongoing efforts to improve the Battle.net service, Blizzard has just launched a new chat app for Android and iOS devices.
Once installed you'll be able to send messages to your Battle.net friends, view what games they're currently playing, and basically enjoy all of the features you've grown used to from the version that sits on your desktop computer.
Both versions are available from their respective digital stores (install using your device of choice), but the global roll-out might not have concluded by the time you read this. If you're not available to find the app right now, just try again a little bit later on.
Here's the full press release about the new mobile functionality for Blizzard's social hub:
Blizzard Battle.net - Stay connected with your friends wherever you are.
The Blizzard Battle.net Mobile App lets you stay connected with your friends wherever you are. Chat with friends, see what game they're playing, and add new ones - right from your mobile device.
Chat with friends:
With mobile chat, it's easier to coordinate play time, discuss strategies, or just stay in touch. Even if your friends are unavailable or offline, chat history and notifications keep the conversation going.
See what your friends are playing:
You can see at a glance what all your friends are up to, so you know when to jump into a game – or when to get one going yourself. Never miss an opportunity to play together.
Add new friends on the go:
All the features for managing and adding friends on the Battle.net Desktop App are now on your phone. Send and receive friend requests, browse friend suggestions, or even scan a QR code to easily add friends in person.
Airtime or Wi-Fi connection required for use.
