The Call Islander is an app the player can use to invite other islanders (players) to play with them. In order to use the app, and invite multiple players on the switch, it will require at least 2 user accounts to have an islander.
To use the app, open the NookPhone, and select the Call Islander app. Here, it will ask you to select 1 or more players to invite (keep in mind, it will require 2 Nintendo Switches to play with more than 2 people locally). Once you've selected the players, it will ask you to sync your controller to the player.
The player who first launched the game will be the leader. The leader is essentially in charge of what the others do. Only the leader can interect with DIY workbenches, talk to villagers, and pick up items. However, the other players can still use tools, shakedown trees, and so on, but when they pick up an item, it won't go in their inventory, but will go straight to the Recycling Bin in the Resident Services building.
If the leader wants to change the leader, they don't have to restart the game. All you have to do, is as the leader, shake your remote. Whoever wants to be the leader can press the designated button displayed above their head, and they will become the new Leader.
It is unlocked automatically unlocked when you have at least two players on your island.
