New Miiverse update makes it possible to post on friend’s feeds

A new update for Miiverse allows users to post directly to their friend's feeds.

Miiverse

A new update for Miiverse has gone live, this time bringing changes with how users can interact with each other when using the service. The new update now allows uers to directly post on their friends feeds without having to join communities, so now friends can chat among friends without having to spam communities about specific games to do so.

This is a great addition to the feature, as it lets users treat the system a bit more like Twitter and adds a more personal element. Let us know what you think of the changes below.

  • GermGerm

    Okay but when’s the FALL update going to be here??

    • Shota

      end september , begin october

    • ICHI

      This is what I’m waiting for, was announced to be around October, some sites said by the end of September. Either way it shouldn’t be too long I hope it’s good!

    • Steve

      In the Fall, lol

    Awesome! Glad to see them further expanding Miiverse into more of a true social network, rather than something resembling a forum.

  • Jack5221

    I don’t post all that much on Miiverse (only my art from art acadamey and pictures I take while playing Pikmin) but nonetheless its a nice addition to the community.

  • Lusunup

    What is this twitter???
    This is great!! it will seem more social now:)

    • http://ejercitogeek.net/ Mercurio2054

      nop, twitter support less characters :p

      • Lusunup

        haha so true! xD

    I LOVE this update. It sucks when I want to make a post that someone else will see, but have to make it in a community and just hope they do :) Also It’s nice to be able to post to your own activity feed too!

  • PS4/WiiU

    I hope in the future you can get a notification when a friend is online or when you have received a message, because its really annoying when a friend has sent you a message but it takes you 1 or 2 days before seeing it

    • Lusunup

      Then something is wrong with your wiiu because it does everthing you said in less than a min of notifiying

      • TheWichi

        Yeah, when a Friend connects it tells you inmmediatily but when you recieve a message you have to open the home menú to see it, but I really want the ability to open a chat group that could be seen directly in the home menú so that way you dont have to open the whole miiverse App.

        • PS4/WiiU

          When a friend connects the home menu button flashes blue, thats it. If your using a wiimote, pro controller or just using the tv, you wont know that a friend is online.

      • PS4/WiiU

        No, you have to do home menu in order to see them

      • PS4/WiiU

        Besides when your friend is online, the home menu button flashes blue. But most of the time i’m looking at my tv and not at my gamepad. Plus, sometimes I use my pro controller. So i can’t see if my friend is online.

    • Landonus

      This would be a great thing. On screen notifications would also be helpful because the blinking blue ring around the home button just does not cut it. I remember seeing early screens of ZombiU with on screen notifications…

  • Magnus Eriksson

    I use MiiVerse quite alot. And I think its get only better and better. People are way nicer there then on most other social medias. At least as long you dont make critical complaints over Nintendo or games. But I use it most to publish smaller drawings and arwork from Art Academy. I think N. should make it possible to publish the art outside the Art Academy group, but that just a minor detail. Anyway, it would be fun if WiiUDaily could make a “WiiUDaily” drawing contest on ArtAcademy-MiiVerse. Could be a good article of that.

    • jay

      Although most critical complaints are silly. I do not think they are a bad thing.

  • Christopher Acuna

    Video clips to miiverse! Do it! :)

  • Wayne Beck

    Sweet, now I just need some friends. >.>

    • icebear80

      Me and you both :/

      • Merrfn

        My friends list is full :) How does it feel loner? >:)

        • Arthur Jarret

          Mine is almost full too… they should really allow us to have more friends – nintendo should realize how popular some of us are!

          • Merrfn

            Apparently everybody on Wii U daily but you and me are loners. They are all basically asking for less friend spaces :P

          • Arthur Jarret

            They should bring strawberry rainbow happy pills to parties more often… a good way to make friends, they will never be lonely!

          • Merrfn

            When I feel lonely I take a strawberry, rainbow happy pill and I feel like I have friends and am happy :)

        • icebear80

          Well, my friends are Mario, Luigi, Link, DK and hundreds of pikmins. The best friends one can have :)

          • Merrfn

            You are basically the definition of nerd.
            All of your friends are fictional characters in viedogames :P

          • icebear80

            I wish I was a nerd. Truth is I’m a busy family guy with not enough time to play. Still just on day 20 or so on Pikmin 3 after getting it at launch!

    • http://www.youtube.com/hedeno1InEnglish Hugo Delgado

      Same here :(

  • Ricardo Santos

    Yay!!

  • BIG Franky

    I wonder if Wii U Daily would start a thread wherein we can all (those interested) exchange NNID’s….. i will friend anyone that sends me a request.
    My NNID is: bigfranky75

    • http://ejercitogeek.net/ Mercurio2054

      or a field in the profile for ninid

  • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

    Glad to see more improvements… My friends list is a little light now but I am sure it will grow over time.

  • felony211662

    I was just thinking last night how much I wanted this

  • derty

    This in a excellent addition. Seems they’re trying to impliment everything they can to make sure that, when they drop the smartphone app, it will take off as intended ;)

  • Chompy

    There are 5 things that NIntendo should add to Miiverse

    1) Have your own “Nintendo” Avatar profile. Having the Mii characters as your profile picture is cute idea, but I would love to have more options to have any avatar picture (Have a Mario Picture, or Link picture as an avatar), like they did with XB360.

    2) Zoom in on pictures when your trying to do “Pointillism” and the checkerboard shading

    3) Save your posts before posting them to the public.

    4) Edit your post if you notice you made some grammatical issues.

    5) Have a group chat with 3 or more players.

  • Merrfn

    Party chat and replying to comments rather than the post is what I want. All in good time.

  • anhell

    I follow you if you follow me :D I’m “ANHELL” on miiverse

  • Joyous Killer

    This is what was missing!

  • ChariotMan7

    It Just Keeps getting better!
