Blizzard has launched a new beta version of its Battle.net client, which has several new features.
This includes the ability to appear offline to friends.
“The experience of appearing offline might be slightly different depending on which game you are playing,” said Blizzard.
“In the case of World of Warcraft, your guildmates will see your character come online and enter WoW’s in-game chat channels, and anyone who has you as a character-level friend will see you online on their friends list. Everyone outside of the game will not see you online.”
Blizzard also introduced a Social tab, along with groups, profiles, and avatars.
It looks similar to chat service Discord and will let you start group voice chats.
