If you guys do, in fact, have phones, you are exactly the target audience for the latest update arriving for the companion app for World of Warcraft. If you don’t have a phone it’s not going to do much for you, since it’s an app for your phone. But if you do, now you’ll be able to talk in guild and community chat channels right from that phone! Modern communications are amazing.

You can also check in on the calendar for any upcoming guild or community events, as well as checking on other in-game events like holidays and the like. It’s a useful way to keep in touch even when you’re not playing the game, so those of you with a need for more communication options will be happy that you can now use your phone to chat with WoW friends even while you play some other game on your computer. We all have cell phones, so come on, let’s get real.

I do have a phone, but the companion app now tells me it’s no longer compatible with my device.

Didn’t factor that into your announcement, did ya Blizz?

Unless this app also tracks and reports everything about my sex life to Blizzard, I’m not interested!

Odd that they only announced this yesterday, it has had this functionality for a while.

To be fair it could be entertaining to keep up on guild drama and shenanigans at work through the app; this alone makes it the most exciting feature shipped during Battle For Azeroth.

True, but sadly, that’s not setting the bar very high.

To be fair, Blizz bar is pretty low these days.
