How to connect Bluetooth headphones to the Nintendo Switch

The now well-known Nintendo home console, thanks to the latest Firmware update (13.0.0) released in recent days, has finally introduced support for headphones, earphones and Bluetooth speakers . If you have updated your hybrid console from the Japanese giant and want to take advantage of this new feature, you are in the right place. In this article we will show you how to connect Bluetooth headphones to the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite .

How to connect Bluetooth devices to the Switch

To connect the Bluetooth headphones to the Nintendo Switch or any other device, the steps to take are as follows:

  • After updating the Firmware of your Nintendo console, you will have to go to the Settings of the latter;
  • at this point go to the Bluetooth Audio tab that appeared thanks to the new update;
  • press the word Add device and, after accessing your headphones in synchronization mode , you will have to select your wireless headphones from the list and finally wait for the pairing to be completed.

If an audio device is connected to the Nintendo Switch, no more than two controllers or Joy-Con pairs can be connected to the console. Beyond this, it should be noted that it will not be possible to use the microphone built into the Bluetooth earphones and that this feature will most likely be introduced thanks to future updates.
