Nintendo Switch has one of its biggest “problems” finally solved!

THE Nintendo Switch remains one of the most popular consoles today, with millions of fans around the world. However, a “little big problem” has remained since its launch a few years ago. Despite arriving with support for bluetooth, the console did not allow its players to connect their headphones wirelessly, being forced to resort to adapters or traditional headphones.

Now, with the latest software update (released today, September 15, 2021), both the Nintendo Switch and its Lite version now support “Bluetooth Audio”.

This is an addition that was expected since the console’s launch four years ago, but one that will definitely make gamers happy. As the old saying goes, better late than never.

Nintendo Switch finally lets you wear bluetooth headphones!

After installing the new update, you will see a new option in your settings called “Bluetooth Audio”. In this tab, you can check the list of paired devices or start a new connection.

However, it is important to note that when you have the wireless headset active, the wireless controller connection will be limited to two units. Also, support has only been implemented for audio playback and does not support microphones.

Nintendo also warns that this connection may experience some latency, depending on the headphones you are using.
