If you want to add a Friend directly into your constellation without having to find them in-game, you can create and send a QR Code Friend invite. Your friend will need to scan or import the QR code to accept the invitation. Below are the two methods for QR Code invitations.

Important - a unique QR code is generated each time, so it can only be used for a single invitation before needing to create another. A maximum of three QR codes can be active at a time, you may need to tap on a pending code and tap Confirm to free up that slot before creating a new invitation.
