The mobile app from Riot Games will be rebranded and update from League+ to Riot Mobile

28 August 2021

League+ will be replaced by Riot Mobile

League+ came out in 2019 and since then, developers Riot Games have released many games. League+ was originally just for the League of Legends audience, but the number of competitive games is growing and new fan content in the form of animated series and more is regularly released. That's why the decision was made to update League+ to Riot Mobile and fix the app's bugs.

From 4 October 2021, the mobile app from Riot Games is expected to be rebranded. It will serve to keep the players informed not only about League of Legends, but also about all the other games from the developers of Riot Games. We'll also keep the social component in the form of chat and add new entertainment content.

The changes primarily affect the design. There will be new eSports, content and customization of the interface, but that's in 2022. The first update will be the possibility of viewing profiles, chat, which will bring together players from different games, and regions and of course will remain a function for adding users to friends.

For those who want to be the fastest up-to-date, a news feed will be added. It will contain information from different games, but you'll be able to set filters in order not to clog it with unnecessary content. The update will include news from League of Legends, League of Legends: Wild Rift, VALORANT, Legends of Runeterra and Teamfight Tactics. As new projects are released, they will also be added to the list.

At the moment the development team is working on making the app stable, but with the first updates Riot Mobile will already be changing it based on feedback, because it's likely that all users will have to install it themselves, as it will include account security features.

Since Riot Mobile will be a League+ update, the L+ technical issues are currently being addressed because it acts as a skeleton for the new app. The fixes so far, according to the developers, include crashes on the iOS system, downloading and accessing game history, and spontaneous deletion of past chat messages. But some bugs will remain until the rebranding, such as no or delayed push notifications, and account dropouts.

For older users, there will be no need to separately download Riot Mobile, as League+ will automatically update to it. L+ is currently available on the App Store or the Google Play Store.
