Rust Companion App Explained (FOR SETUP SEE FURTHER DOWN ARTICLE):
Pair with your Servers
Explore an open world of real danger in Rust. The only aim here is to survive. About The Companion Server is what Rust+ uses to communicate with Rust servers. If something is wrong with it then nobody will be able to view your server in Rust+, even if they pair with it. They will see it loading for a while before it says the server is offline.
Pair with your favourite Rust servers to receive real-time updates for the things that matter the most: player counts, current game time, online teammates, and more. You’ll also get (optional) push notifications whenever one of your teammates joins the game.
Explore the Map
View the full server map to find points of interest, see where your teammates are and check on vending machines. You can also track ongoing events like the attack helicopter and cargo ship.
Keep up with your Team
Communicate with your team from anywhere to just catch up or plan for your next raid. Messages are visible in both the app and the in-game team chat so you can seamlessly switch between the two.
Control your in-game Devices
Connect Smart Switches and Smart Alarms to your in-game electrical contraptions and pair them with Rust+ to control them remotely at any time. Smart Switches let you turn things on or off, and Smart Alarms send customisable push notification alerts when an electrical signal is detected.
