Nintendo announced a surprise software update today regarding a feature that many have been asking for since the Switch’s 2017 release: Bluetooth Audio. The news directly from Nintendo provides details on the setup that can be found in the system settings for the Switch. See the details are shown below:
The setup process is quick and simple. Follow the steps below to enjoy the long awaited feature for the Nintendo Switch.
I used my Samsung Buds Pro to test out the latency with the audio while playing the Contra Anniversary Collection and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, and the results were behind by about one second. This may not be as noticeable with other games, but I found the delay to be off enough to be annoying. Hopefully this is something that can be adjusted as this was only tested for a few minutes.
