Year 3, Issue 39
You may have noticed recently that the Battle.net app has acquired, among other things, a chat history, with messages being stored for 28 days, and emoji support (for the full change log click on what's new, found in the drop down by the Blizzard logo, at the top left of the screen). Hot on the heels of these changes has been the announcement of the Blizzard Battle.net App. A snippet of the announcement, and a link to the full announcement, can be found in the Warcraft segment of the newsletter.
With this app you will now be able to add new friends on the go, talk to your friends whenever you want, even if they're in other guilds, and quickly check what games your friends are playing. The article also says you can use QR codes. I don't know about anyone else, but I never got the hang of those personally.
On your friends page you will find in the top right corner the little Add Friends symbol. This takes you to the options to either add someone's BattleTag, or add by code. Selecting Add by Code then gives the option to either scan your friend's code, or display your own. You will also be given friend suggestions based on who else you have friended.
In the middle tab is your message history; nothing much to say there. On the right is a panel with the ability to adjust your status, control your notifications, and under Accessibility is a text-to-speech option.
With all this newness, it is a good time to remind you to be courteous to your friends. If they have the Busy symbol up, respect it. Don't expect your friends to drop everything just to join you. We would also like to remind our members that this does not necessarily mean our staff will be faster to respond to applications to our guild. All of our staff and our members have real lives, so be respectful of their availability.
I hope you all have a good week.
