Battle.net Launches New Social Features

Blizzard announces new social features are now out of beta and now available through Battle.net. This includes a new gifting function, and they are offering everyone a Hearthstone gift to kick that off. Here's the overview:

We’re excited to introduce an array of new social features designed to give Blizzard players even more ways to stay connected inside our games and out—all available starting today in the Blizzard Battle.net® desktop app.

The new Social tab includes the brand-new Blizzard Groups feature and hosts all of your chats, and player-to-player gifting gives you new ways to show your appreciation to your friends.

We’ve also launched some new features that let you control how you appear to the Blizzard community, including profiles and avatars that let you customize your online persona, along with the ability to appear offline—read more about all these features below.

You need to supply the link or code, for people to find the group...

I assume (very possibly incorrectly) that you can just request a join to the group once you add The Half Elf as a friend. I just sent a request, so I guess we will see.

Just checked, you can finally appear offline! It only took so many years!

Still, I appreciate it.

I have created a Blues News group if that is ok with Blue. If you would like to join it you are more then welcome to, and with Destiny 2 coming out tomorrow if you want to add me to your Battle.net friends list my gamertag is TheHalfElf#11957
I also play Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm and really suck at Hearthstone.

I did send out an invite to everyone I already had friend listed on Battle.net and everyone is welcome to join.

Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.
