Destiny’s Companion App Will Soon Offer Official LFG/LFM Support

One of the principal complaints lobbied against MMOFPS Destiny has been it’s limited social capabilities. With nearly no in-game option for matchmaking certain events (raids, heroic story missions, and the like), many ambitious entrepreneurs turned to creating their own sites — i.e., DestinyLFG’s .com and .net variations. However, according to Bungie’s weekly update, the official iOS/Android companion app will soon get a new update on the #Recruitment forum.

The pictures below showcase what the new options will soon look like — instead of a cluster of various forum posts, players will now have the option to sort by console, event, and more option. And while you can create and set a fireteam, players will still need to organize the group through their consoles — creating a fireteam isn’t possible via the app.

While this is undoubtedly a great quality of life feature and a step in the right direction, there is a legitimate question to how necessary the feature is 20 months after the game’s release. I suppose with 30 million registered players, someone will find the feature useful.
