Hello Riot Mobile! Farewell League+
The world today looks much different than it did before we launched VALORANT. Riot’s portfolio of games has greatly expanded and many of our players are now enjoying different experiences -- new games, comics and even an animated series. To make it easier to navigate this ever-expanding ecosystem, we are transitioning League+ into a mobile companion for VALORANT and Riot’s other flagship titles.
We are so excited to finally announce the launch of Riot Mobile and get this utility into the hands of our players!
In this article we’ll cover the highlights of Riot Mobile, stability and performance issues we are addressing for players, and what to expect over the next few months.
Introducing Riot Mobile
The first thing you should know is that on October 4th, 2021 League+ will be upgraded to Riot Mobile. When we set out on this project, our goal was to create an experience for players that made it easy to discover new content and activities to engage with, stay informed across all of our titles and events, and connect to other Riot players outside of the game.
We’ve made a lot of progress since our last update and we’re excited to share what we’ve been cooking up over the last several months.
Here are the key highlights:
New Look & Feel
Our design team has worked hard to enhance your experience on mobile and build a solid foundation for some really cool features coming in 2022 focused on esports, more access to content, and personalization.
For v1.0, the enhanced Riot Mobile experience includes:
- Player Profiles
- Cross-Game & Cross-Region Chat
- Quick Paths to Search for Friends & Start Conversations
If you’re looking for an easy way to stay up to date with the games and events that matter most to you, Riot Mobile has you covered. At launch we’ll support the following titles, but will continue to expand as we release new experiences:
- League of Legends
- League of Legends: Wild Rift
- Legends of Runeterra
- Team Fight Tactics
Don’t worry if you only play VALORANT. Riot Mobile allows players to easily set filters so they only see the content and experiences that they care about the most.
What’s on the Horizon for Riot Mobile?
The pivot to multi-game is a huge undertaking that will keep us busy for a while. Our main focus will be making it easier for players to connect with the content and people they enjoy across all of our titles in a fun and comfortable way.
You will start to see significant improvements to experiences around esports, match history and player security shortly after our initial launch.
An Update on Stability & Performance
We appreciate your feedback and have done our best to address many of your concerns around crashes, chat issues and notifications. While some of these fixes are already resolved within League+, there are some improvements that will only be included in the Riot Mobile app -- so be sure to update to Riot Mobile on October 4th when it becomes available in the App Store and Google Play Store.

How to Download Riot Mobile
Good news. If you already have League+ installed on your phone and have automatic updates set up, the app will automatically update when it’s available in your region.
If you don’t, we recommend heading over to your preferred app store and downloading League+ now so you’ll be part of the first wave to experience Riot Mobile when it launches.
