With this update, we're excited to release a host of new features aimed at making your social experiences more fun - and we've fixed a few bugs along the way! Read on for more details:

Notification Center

Chat messages, group invites, mentions, and friend requests - oh my; a lot is happening and we want to make sure you don't miss a beat. Check out the the notification center at top right of App. It's your one stop shop for Social!

Giphy Support

Mentions

@All, we did it! You can @mention group members, moderators, and leaders in Blizzard Groups!

Patching Improvements

We've also improved our patching process to make app patches less intrusive. Most app updates will no longer require an immediate restart - except this one (sorry).

New News

We're bringing the updated Blizzard News experience to the Battle.net App! Blizzard News combines the latest news across all of Blizzard's franchises, eSports, and community initiatives. 

App Feedback Portal

The Blizzard community has some of the most impassioned gamers in the world - and we love it. There is never a shortage of feedback, so we've added an in-app feedback portal in the Blizzard dropdown.

We've shipped a lot of new features this patch, so head over to the feedback portal and let us know what you think!
