After Four Years, Nintendo Adds Bluetooth Support to Nintendo Switch
In a surprise update, Nintendo has added Bluetooth audio support to Nintendo Switch. After four years of being on the market, a lack of Bluetooth support was one of the standard features missing from the popular console. Some third party companies even took things into their own hands to bring the feature to the Switch. Now, the feature is available natively in the settings of the console after a hardware update. Not only does this allow support of Bluetooth headphones, but it also allows the use of Bluetooth controllers.
Only one Bluetooth device can be active at a time, but the system can save up to 10 devices. Playing games with other Switch systems on local wireless will also disable Bluetooth communication. At the moment, Bluetooth microphones are not supported.
