The Nintendo Switch has finally received Bluetooth audio support


  • Nintendo has finally enabled Bluetooth audio on the Switch.
  • The support comes via a system update for the consoles.

The Nintendo Switch has been a roaring success for the Japanese giant since its introduction back in March 2017, delivering a hybrid home/handheld experience and loads of killer titles. It’s not perfect though, and one major omission for the longest time was Bluetooth audio.

Fortunately, Nintendo has just announced on Twitter that the latest Switch firmware update finally brings Bluetooth audio output. So you can finally pair your favorite Bluetooth earbuds or headphones with the console.

There are a couple of caveats with this support though, Nintendo says. For one, Bluetooth microphones aren’t supported. Another limitation is that only two wireless controllers can be paired when Bluetooth audio is connected. The firm adds that Bluetooth audio will be disconnected during local wireless communication such as starting a local multiplayer game.

Still, we’re glad to see Nintendo catching up to smartphones and the humble PlayStation Vita when it comes to Bluetooth audio support. It does nevertheless make you wonder what exactly took the company so long to implement it in the first place.
