Destiny 2 now has crossplay! Here's how to use it.

With crossplay, the Tower in Stadia will feel a lot busier.

Playing Destiny on Stadia was one of the things that first excited me about the platform. Being able to get a fireteam together and play some strikes on the go was incredibly appealing. Unfortunately, it never really worked as well as I hoped because most of my friends weren't using Stadia. That all changed with the new Season of the Lost as Bungie introduced full crossplay to Destiny 2. Now you can play with anyone on PC, Stadia, Playstation, and Xbox.

If you're excited to enjoy one of the best Stadia games with your friends on other platforms but aren't sure how to use the new crossplay system, don't worry. We're here to help with a quick guide that will explain everything you need to know about using Destiny 2 crossplay.

How to add friends for crossplay in-game

Here's how you can add friends (and how friends can add you) for crossplay while in Destiny 2. This way doesn't always work correctly, but Bungie is aware of the issue and is working to correct it.

  1. Launch Destiny 2 and keep a note of your Bungie Name — that's your normal gamer tag and the added numbers displayed — above your character emblems.
  2. Share it with your friends and have them share theirs with you, as you're going to need these. For example, my Bungie Name is keridel#6111.

  3. While in Orbit, select Open Director.

  4. Select Roster at the top of the Director screen.
  5. Select the Manage Invites icon on the left side of the screen. It's shaped like an envelope.

  6. Choose a Bungie name from the lists. Eventually, there should be a search option, but not yet.

  7. Select Send Bungie friend request when their profile appears.
  8. If your friends have sent you a friend request, you can accept it by selecting Accept Friend Request in the Bungie Friend Requests section of this menu.

As soon as everyone has accepted, you should be able to add them all to a fireteam and get playing.

How to add friends for crossplay on Bungie.net

The in-game method can be a little janky, so Bungie has another way to get it working using Bungie.net. To get your existing friends from other platforms, you can follow this short guide.

  1. Sign in to Bungie.net/friends by selecting the platform you play on in the center of the page.

  2. Click on the import friends button in the center of the screen to pull in all your friends from assorted platforms. You'll need to sign in to each platform to get your friends list.

  3. Tap Send Request to add your friends from other platforms.

There is a slightly different way if you are looking to add a specific person who may not already be on your list.

  1. At the top right of the page, select the search bar icon. It looks like a magnifying glass.
  2. In the search bar, type in the Bungie Name of a friend you want to add.
  3. Select your friend's profile.

  4. On the left side of your friend's profile, select Send Friend Request.

  5. To accept a friend request, go the Bungie Friends tab of your Account page.

  6. Under the Pending tab, select Accept next to requests your friends have sent you.

Once this process has been finished, you and your friends will be able to play together.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
