The faithful Blizzard community have been screaming for a way to chat to their Blizzard Battle.net friends ‘on the go’ ever since the original WoW Armory app was launched. Now all our dreams have come true as Blizz have announced that their new Blizzard Battle.net Chat app for both Android and iOS is now available for download…. in some countries.
There is a slow rollout from region to region so don’t panic if like us you are sat in the UK crying into your cornflakes because you cannot see the app in your mobile app store just yet, it is coming.
About the new app, Blizz says…
“Blizzard Battle.net – Stay connected with your friends wherever you are
The Blizzard Battle.net Mobile App lets you stay connected with your friends wherever you are. Chat with friends, see what game they’re playing, and add new ones – right from your mobile device.
Chat with friends:
With mobile chat, it’s easier to coordinate play time, discuss strategies, or just stay in touch. Even if your friends are unavailable or offline, chat history and notifications keep the conversation going.
See what your friends are playing:
You can see at a glance what all your friends are up to, so you know when to jump into a game – or when to get one going yourself. Never miss an opportunity to play together.
Add new friends on the go:
All the features for managing and adding friends on the Battle.net Desktop App are now on your phone. Send and receive friend requests, browse friend suggestions, or even scan a QR code to easily add friends in person.
Airtime or Wi-Fi connection required for use.

And judging by the screenshots it does look pretty damn cool! We hope it rolls out to all regions soon as we can’t wait to get our hands on it here in the UK!
