Users can now send friend requests via the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app.

Previously this was only possible via the Nintendo Switch itself, but now it is also possible via the smartphone app. Players can also share their unique friend code via a qr code or url. It is not possible to accept the friend request via the app; that still has to be done via the Switch itself.

Furthermore, people using the app on iPhone need at least iOS 14.0 to use it. People with iOS 13 or earlier will no longer be able to use the app.
