Fortnite is aiming to make party forming and chat with your friends a lot more streamlined with the new Party Hub feature.

Getting together with your friends in Fortnite Mobile is about to become a lot easier. Recently, patch v10.31 came to the game and with it came the new Fortnite Party Hub. This hub makes communication, organization, and readying up with your friends much easier.

Fortnite v10.31 was launched on September 18, 2019, featuring a number of bug fixes and tweaks according to the official patch notes. The Party Hub was the major addition to the game this time around, although only available on Fortnite Mobile for the time being. Specifically, the Party Hub works best on Mobile anyways because it’s the only version of Fortnite where friends lists and voice chat aren’t already readily available.

The Fortnite Party Hub is built into Fortnite Mobile. When you open the game, the Hub can be found at the bottom of the screen. From it you can start parties and engage in voicechat with your fellow players. Despite the fact that the Hub isn’t on any platform besides Mobile, you can still transfer parties from the Mobile Hub to other versions of the game just by opening them up while your Mobile party is still active.

In terms of voice communication, the Hub allows you to party up and communicate with friends even if they’re already in a game of their own so you can get ready and organized for the next match, or just shoot the breeze while your friends are playing. Text communication is unavailable in the Party Hub at the moment, but Epic has confirmed that it is on the way. You can also make a party private in the Party Hub to keep people from jumping into your party freely.

Although seemingly a standard feature, the Fortnite Party Hub should go a long way in making it easier to connect with friends on Fortnite Mobile and other platforms and you can check it out now. Be sure to check out our other Fortnite coverage as well.
