Blizzard’s Battle.net app gets an upgrade

The next iteration for Blizzard’s launch application is here, and no, it doesn’t include yet another name change.

The changes mostly come in the form of quality-of-life improvements to the Battle.net application, such as being able to launch Blizzard games like World of Warcraft and Overwatch straight from the task bar or dock. Unnamed bug fixes are come part and parcel of this update.

Players who use the Blizzard app for its social features will be pleased to hear that groups are now easier for admins to handle. Also, both groups and chats now benefit from improvements and an “updated experience.”

Im still waiting for the app to let you search for random groups by game type, LFG, and other categories.

Would make finding people to play Overwatch and other blizzard games in a group, much easier.

I would be more interested in an update that makes this app optional.

Why?
I find it pretty handy dandy

No biggie, but I do not like having a separate app, with an extra background daemon running, with a separate installation entry, with entries of games I do not play, and feature bloat I do not need just to launch one game. Being able to launch and update the games stand-alone should be enabled. K.I.S.S. : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KISS_principle

Others might be playing more Blizzard games or find the features handy, which is why I don’t say the app is useless. But forcing it’s use is annoying.

But then how would they market their Esports league to you?
