Miiverse update now lets you search by nickname


Nintendo have shared information regarding the latest update to Miiverse, revealing that users can now search by nicknames rather than being limited solely to Nintendo Network IDs.

“There has been a small update to the Wii U version of Miiverse today,” Nintendo spokesperson Marty shared through the service. “Up until now, you could only search for other users by Nintendo Network ID, but now you can also search by nickname. To use this function, go to user Menu > Search Users.

“Please be aware that, although Nintendo Network IDs are unique, nicknames are not, so you may get multiple results when performing a search by nickname.”
