Among Us developer Innersloth has detailed how the game's upcoming 'Friends List' feature will work in a new blog post (thanks, Nintendo Everything).

Although friends lists are often a common feature in online games, Among Us has — up until now — not given players an easy way of keeping in touch with friends in-game. With the title continually surging in popularity (even getting its own manga adaptation), it's only natural that such a feature would be added in at some point.

The good news is that the friends list feature will be fairly self-explanatory, including the following elements:

  • A unique friend code
  • Ability to send and receive friend requests
  • Invite friends to your own lobby
  • See who you recently played with
  • Ability to block players

Sounds comfortably reliable, right? In addition, Innersloth has warned that upon launch of the new update, the devs will be temporarily stopping the ability to link existing accounts together — but don't worry, this will be fixed later down the line.

Once the upcoming update launches, the team plan on taking a bit of a break from adding new content to the game in favour of eliminating pesky bugs that have cropped up over time. As such, further quality of life changes will be implemented in a separate future update.
