The Nintendo Switch Online software has finally received a substantial update with version 2.0, after years of development. This comes just a few days after the Nintendo Switch celebrates its fifth birthday.
Nintendo’s method to allowing users to use voice chat while playing select games like Splatoon 2 is the Nintendo Switch Online app. A lot of new features have been added to the app. It’s intriguing, however it’s still quite basic and lacks the functionality of Sony’s PS app.
The program contains a primary tab with information such as online buddies, games with specialized services, and voice chat. Users can also click into settings to learn more about notifications, voice chat, alerts, and other features.
Nintendo Switch Online has been redesigned to indicate which pals are online and to allow you to control who can view your online status.
Furthermore, Nintendo has made it easy for you to check and copy your friend codes (to send to friends or add to your Twitter profile, for example).
Many other minor improvements have been made to the program, according to the Japanese business. While Nintendo has been working hard to increase the number of apps available for iPhone users, the business still feels behind its competition.
Players can, for example, use the PS App to browse the PS5 shop, purchase games, add friends, and more. There are only a few things you can do with Nintendo Switch Online, which makes many people unhappy.
The app is free in version 2.0, and users must check in using their Nintendo Switch account credentials. The app is available for download on the App Store here.
