Free Nintendo Switch Online App Out Now

Nintendo Switch has a new online application announced by Nintendo. Available now is the free Nintendo Switch Online App for iOS and Android. Splatoon 2 will be supported by the application when it launches this week, allowing you to invite friends to online matches and make use of voice chat. Additionally, you can invite people to private battles, league battles, Salmon runs, and Splatfest battles. This all happens inside of a service called SplatNet 2.

The Nintendo Switch Online app is free, as is the online functionality for Splatoon 2. But only until the Switch's online service officially launches in 2018. At that time, a membership will cost $20/year, while you can also subscribe for 1 and 3 months.
