The update, which many expected to be part of the Nintendo Switch OLED (but was not), allows only one Bluetooth audio device to be paired at a time; However, up to ten Bluetooth devices can be saved on the Nintendo Switch system at once.

The ‘Bluetooth Audio’ option can be found in the Switch’s Settings menu after the software update, which is available now.


Only two wireless controllers can be used while a Bluetooth audio device is connected, and will be disconnected during ‘local communication’ – such as multiplayer in the same room.

Nintendo also says that the Bluetooth microphone cannot be used, but the Japanese company’s voice chat system is in any case fully connected to the smartphone via an app.

The Bluetooth update brings with it another important feature: The console will now be connected to the Internet while in sleep mode, so it can download content without using it.

The update comes ahead of the aforementioned Nintendo Switch OLED model, which launches on October 8th for $349.99. That device will have a bigger display with smaller bezels, “advanced audio” and 64GB of internal storage. The stand has been redesigned, giving it a great base for use outside the dock.

There have long been rumors of a “Pro” version of the Switch that could feature an updated processor and 4K video support for the TV, but Nintendo says it has “no plans” for another device.
