The Nintendo Switch finally gets a useful feature, waiting for the game for a long time. After four years, you can now connect your headphones to the console when you are in your docking station.

Nintendo Switch: New function thanks to update

The latest System Update 13.0.0 for the Nintendo Switch is there – and it has it. Now that the end of the game has been waiting for the feature for four years, it is finally reality: headphone support per Bluetooth.

Since neither the Pro controllers nor the Joy-Cons have their own audio books, there was only the possibility to plug headphones to the console themselves. For those who like to play in handheld mode, this is completely sufficient. Who rather plays on the big screen , however, had to look in the tube so far. It was: speaker or nothing.
