Nintendo Switch Online App Now Works In Sleep Mode

Nintendo Switch Online App Now Works In Sleep Mode

Good news today for those of you who use the Nintendo Switch Online app as it has received a well-needed update today.

The bad news is that the whole process is still tethered to your smartphone. It will include online multiplayer access, voice chat, and even access to classic Nintendo games like Super Mario Bros. After not being present on the console at launch, features like voice chat released alongside Splatoon 2 back in July. What players were given certainly wasn't an encouraging sign for a service that Nintendo wants us to pay for at some point in the future. Now all Nintendo has to do is evolve beyond the whole cord system and they'll be in business. The full update notes are embedded below.

The major change is that now, voice chat will continue working if you open other apps on your phone, or if your phone goes into sleep mode. In addition to voice chat improvements and bug fixes, the Google Play Store mentions that Bluetooth support for devices has also been improved.

Many were upset to learn that voice chat would only work if the Nintendo Switch Online app was open in the forefront and would suspend the voice chat if switching to another app or even turning the screen off. For more details, please refer to the official website for your smart device.
