Nintendo Switch Can Now Be Paired With Bluetooth Audio Devices

A feature that many of us have been wanting for the Nintendo Switch has finally arrived. Nintendo recently released a firmware update that has enabled Bluetooth device connectivity for the Switch. There are restrictions, of course, but this is a big win for Nintendo fans that is sure to enhance the portable gaming experience. Even with the headphone jack, it can be a bit of a pain to play around with wires hanging everywhere, so being able to connect a Bluetooth headset or headphones is a big convenience when we are gaming on the go.

According to the Nintendo Support webpage, pairing restrictions and miscellaneous notes read as follows:

  • Up to two wireless controllers can connect to a Nintendo Switch system while using Bluetooth audio. You will not be able to pair additional wireless controllers until you disconnect the Bluetooth audio device.
  • Bluetooth audio will be disconnected during local communication, such as when starting a local wireless multiplayer game.
  • Only one Bluetooth audio device can be paired at a time, but up to 10 devices can be saved on a Nintendo Switch system.
  • Bluetooth microphones cannot be used.
  • You may experience audio latency depending on your Bluetooth device.

The big one here is that the Apple Airpods are compatible with the Switch, which is a welcome addition to the wireless support feature. Finally, the firmware update also enables software updates with the dock. However, this only works with Switch OLED equipment which will be available starting on October 8.
