Destiny 2 companion app to get a complete overhaul in April to make it more useful
Bungie, the folks that made Destiny the huge sci-fi franchise that every gamer knows about, have just announced their plans for the month of April. Among the many changes the studio plans to implement in Destiny 2, there's one in particular that concerns smartphone users.

Apparently, Bungie plans to revamp the Destiny 2 companion app this month. A new update for both the Android and iOS versions of the app is expected to be released on April 4.

The most important change will be the option to view your full 3D guardian in all its glory and share the image with your friends. Also, you'll now be able to view the individual models for all your weapons, ships, sparrow, ghosts, etc.

In addition, the developers will introduce the means to disable the rendering in case users believe this feature impacts on their devices too much to remain enabled. 

Furthermore, the iOS version of Destiny 2 companion app will receive a few new features that will be available in beta. Here are the improvements you can expect if you own an iOS device:

  • Create fireteams in your clan and keep them private to your clan or open them to the public;
  • As the fireteam creator, you can issue Sony and Xbox platform invites directly from within the app;
  • Schedule and set a native mobile calendar reminder for your fireteams for the future or set them to start immediately.

According to Bungie, this version will replace the current Find Fireteam feature in the near future, but both will be available when the beta releases.
