- The support comes through a system replace for the consoles.
The Nintendo Switch has been a roaring success for the Japanese large since its introduction again in March 2017, delivering a hybrid residence/handheld expertise and a great deal of killer titles. It’s not excellent although, and one main omission for the longest time was Bluetooth audio.
Fortunately, Nintendo has simply announced on Twitter that the newest Switch firmware replace finally brings Bluetooth audio output. So you’ll be able to finally pair your favourite Bluetooth earbuds or headphones with the console.
There are a few caveats with this support although, Nintendo says. For one, Bluetooth microphones aren’t supported. Another limitation is that solely two wi-fi controllers could be paired when Bluetooth audio is related. The agency provides that Bluetooth audio can be disconnected throughout native wi-fi communication comparable to beginning a neighborhood multiplayer sport.
