EA App, an Electronic Arts app that has been in open beta testing, will soon replace the company’s Origin, after more than 10 years. The new client will have a simplified design, automatic downloads and a unified list of friends across platforms. In this way, players of FIFA 23, The Sims 4, among other games, can interact with users of other services, such as Steam or console players, for example.
Those who already have Origin installed can wait for an invitation from the company to update the app or, if they prefer, they can download the EA app directly from the Electronic Arts website. Initially, the EA app will be Windows only, so Mac users will still have to use Origin.

According to Electronic Arts, the EA app is the fastest and lightest client available for PC, and the company has tried to make the transition as smooth as possible. When you install the new app, all games installed by Origin will automatically appear in your library, and files with local and cloud storage data will also be transferred to the new app.
One of the most useful features is to perform automatic game downloads and updates in the background, so that the user can launch the game immediately when they want to play, without waiting for update downloads, as is the case with Origin these days.

Friends list players they have on Origin will also be automatically transferred to the EA app. It will be possible to connect the app to other platforms such as Steam, PlayStation 5 (PS5), Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 (PS4) and Xbox One to create a unified list of friends so you always know what they are playing. .
