The Nintendo Switch Online app is available now for iOS and Android

Brodie Fogg 19 July 2017 NEWS


You can download the app now, but that's about all you can do.

The divisive Nintendo Switch Online app finally launched today in preparation for the competitive Splatoon 2 on Friday. However, the servers still aren't live so there's not a whole lot you can do with it.

According to the App Store description (and what we already knew), the app will facilitate voice chat, be home to dedicated game services like SplatNet2 for Splatoon 2 and help you connect with friends via the Nintendo Network and other social media websites.

Launching the app without actually having the servers live might seem a little backwards, but hey, at least you will be ready to go when the servers go live on (we assume) Friday.
