The Nintendo Switch Has Bluetooth, Did You Know? Here’s How to Get Your Devices Connected.
The Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular current gaming consoles. There are virtually no situations where a Switch can’t be used to play games, thanks to its portable and stationary gaming capabilities. The Switch, on the other hand, recently received a bright new Bluetooth extension.
On September 14, 2021, the console received a system upgrade. Several new functionalities for speedier downloading were incorporated in the upgrade. Users will be able to prepare their Switch Docks for the future OLED model with the latest system update.
Expanded settings for Bluetooth audio are maybe one of the most useful and noticeable changes.
Scroll all the way down to the “Bluetooth Audio” tab in the Settings menu. You should see a button that reads “Pair Device” already. When you press it, it should begin scanning for adjacent devices.
Before you try to connect, check sure your Bluetooth device is turned on and can be identified by the Switch. After a brief period of time, the Switch should automatically connect to whichever audio device you require.
While the Nintendo Switch’s controllers are usually connected via Bluetooth, it may now utilise a variety of audio functions. The Switch now has the ability to connect to devices such as speakers and even wireless headphones. Players can now use their external speakers to project the sound of their gaming or play discreetly using headphones.
That means you won’t have to dig out your old headphones to play some Zelda or WarioWare on your commute.
As of now, there are only a few restrictions. Only two compatible wireless controllers can be linked while using Bluetooth audio, according to the update notes. While connecting wirelessly to other adjacent Switches, players are also unable to use Bluetooth audio. There may also be some audio lag depending on the device you’re using.
It’s reasonable to assume that most decent Bluetooth speakers and headphones will function with the Switch, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

Aside from Bluetooth audio, the update includes a number of other enhancements. With a LAN port, switch docks can now get software upgrades (though Lite models lack this new option). The Switch can now stay connected to the internet even while in Sleep Mode, allowing it to download updates and add-on content… Brinkwire in a nutshell.
