More Sets Added to LEGO Build Together App

Back in December of last year, we discussed a new experience available through the LEGO Building Instruction app, called Build Together. This innovative feature opened a new dimension of interactive building, designed to multiply play value while turning LEGO building into a social, cooperative activity that both families and friends could enjoy together (see: LEGO Building Instruction App – Build Together).

To recap, Build Together allows up to five people to build a LEGO set together. Each builder needs their own smart device with the LEGO Building Instructions app already installed. Players then have to scan the QR code on the physical building instructions booklet to join together as a team. Once everyone has joined the session they can start building together!

When Build Together was launched, only six sets supported the interactive experience. However, recently LEGO added sixteen more sets to the lineup. Below is the full list:

What do you think? Have you tried the Build Together feature already? How do you like it? And are you excited about the new sets added to the experience? What other sets would you like to build with your friends and family? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below!

    I meant to try this, but then I never did. Is there a reason they can’t offer this service for all sets? I’m glad they expanded it though.

    We tried this during the Christmas break. We noticed some glitches, but other than that, it worked okay.

    Oh, cool! The monkie kid sets were added! I just got the galactic explorer.

    Off topic, but did you guys see that the new city grocery store has a dude with a prosthetic leg?! I thought that was really cool.

      Oh, really? I want to check that out. What’s the set number? I was happy to see the wheel chair and hearing aid released in the last couple of years. Great that they are doing this.

    We tried with the tree house recently and with the family house shortly after launch.
    It did glitch on us with the older version too. At some point only one person built a large portion of the set, and that was not so great.
    In that regard, they did improve the app, but I would still recommend exchanging the phones/tablets for more variety. I would wish for it to do that by itself. For example, we built the tree house with two builders and it ended up that one of us would keep making only small things in advance. But since you can just swap devices, it’s less of an issue than not having any tasks left at all.

    We do would wish for more grown up sets and maybe technic, because we would want to include it as an alternative to a board game night with friends.

    Is this list available on a Lego website, or, I don’t know, a searchable attribute inside the Lego builder app

    By now this seems established and there is a dedicated section in the app. I am actually surprised almost nobody is talking about this feature, it’s such a game changer when it comes to coop with Lego! We use it all the time! Maybe this blog can do a follow up?

      Yes, it’s a wonderful feature! We could certainly do a follow-up. Everyone should at least know about it!
