Miitomo: Software updates (latest update: Ver. 2.2.1)


On this page, you will find all there is to know about the Software updates for Miitomo (released on March 17th 2016 in Japan, and March 31st 2016 in Europe and North America). NB: this page was created on February 9th 2017, so we’re only going to list updates released from that day onwards.

How to update Miitomo for Android and iOS?

To download updates for Miitomo, you have two options:

  • tap on the notification that should appear on your phone;
  • go to the App Store / Google Play Store, and more precisely to the “My Apps & Games” section > Installed tab (Play Store, Android) or the Updates tab (AppStore, iOS).

To check that you have the latest version of the game, simply launch it: you should see the right version number on the loading screen (in that case, Ver. 2.2.1). You can also check out the version number in the menu.
