Come on, even Wii U had better online. Let us voice chat and message people on the Switch itself without this annoying companion app. Even the way you use it to voice chat sucks, you have to choose a specific game mode in Splatoon 2 just to be able to invite friends to voice chat, rather than being able to ring up any Switch friends at any time. Giving 2 stars because the integrated Splatnet is actually really good.

Unnecessary app and extremely archaic. Works for only one game and the voice part is just absurd to think it useful. It's not even close to apps like discord and it's required for voice chat? At least I can check stats on splatoon, even if it's just one game sadly.

The app is barely useful at the moment, it needs a status for the multiplayer so players can know if there's server maintenance. There could be an option to purchase a game, or future membership fee for the online service when it comes into affect, ready to be downloaded etc, on the Switch. The ability to see which friends are online. And notifications for purchased games e.g. Game updates, server issues, or events for a specific game. And a report bug or feature. Chat is extremely difficult to use, and there is no basic message system. Maybe just add a text only message system with no ability to add pictures or videos, and tie it into parental controls? Which needs more advertising so parents are aware of that feature across the board.

Its only made for splatoon. I hate that i even have to get an app for a console system and to make it worse even after downloading this app, you learn that its useless to use it for Mario kart, Minecraft, Arms or any other App that online chat could be used for. Nintendo, do something better for us online dudes please.

This app is the worst app ever created. I can't stress enough how bad this is. It's the abomination of all communications apps. Nintendo should be ashamed. - Lacks basic features. - Highly inconvenient. - Barely useful at all. - Horrible concept and implementation.

It could be a LOT better. I think it's really stupid to include only Splatoon 2 (SplatNet 2) in there and voice chat with the headset instead of that crazy ad from Splatoon in Japanese writing. Why couldn't you have voice chat in the chat headset? It would be better to invite friends from the Switch itself. I will give 3 stars because the SplatNet 2 is actully really good (I know how I was talking about having only SplatNet 2 in there). If it wasn't that good, I would've rated it 1 or 2 star/stars.

Literally the dumbest way they could have gone about doing matchmaking and voice chat... I really hope Splatoon 2 will be the only game that will ever use this complicated mess. You had best have a phone just for this app too otherwise almost anything you do on the phone will kick you from matches.
Alex 3
It's a start but it's just not good. It doesn't make any sense. I can use it because Im willing to work with it, but other people aren't. I could convince my friends to get Splatnet2 for the store and the battle stats, but they would have no idea what to do after that. The whole purpose is that everyone who plays has this same companion app, so in its current state it's just unusable. I'm hanging in there, but Nintendo please say something.

Look, dont get me wrong. I love Nintendo. But when yoy look at this app and this form of voice chat, in comparison to other consoles voice chat like xbox and PlayStations, this sucks. Ot sucks that its only for one game. It needs to be built in to the console and open for any game. Nintendo knows exactly what me and so many others are talking about. Fix it. Please.
Liam 3
Look, as it is now I wouldn't recommend the download at all. There's only one game connect to its service. (Splatoon 2) I can see the potential in the future but as said above, don't bother with it right now.
Idranoid 3
Overall lacking in... basically eveything. Only works for one game and serves very little, I've honestly stopped using it. When there's more games to use this for, I'll consider re-downloading again.
