Four years after it first launched, the Nintendo Switch is adding support for Bluetooth audio devices with its latest update.
Last week, Nintendo announced that it is now possible to connect Bluetooth headphones and earbuds to its Switch gaming console. The long-awaited feature is being released with the console’s latest update.
You’ll be able to connect your Bluetooth audio devices from within the new “Bluetooth” tab, which includes a pairing menu, after going into “pairing” mode on your audio device.
However, the feature has limitations. For example, the Nintendo Switch will only support audio output from the handheld to the paired audio device, and audio input from microphones will not be supported.
The latest #NintendoSwitch update is now available, including the ability to pair Bluetooth devices for audio output.

Furthermore, the Switch will be able to save up to 10 paired Bluetooth devices on its system, but will only be able to connect to one Bluetooth output at a time.
As Nintendo’s support page points out, when using Bluetooth audio, users will only be able to use up to two wireless controllers. Finally, it will also be disconnected during local communication, such as when playing a local wireless multiplayer game.
