With Bluetooth headsets and speakers becoming more popular as time goes by, the demand for good Nintendo Switch Bluetooth adapters rise. This is because even though the Nintendo Switch has Bluetooth, it is not compatible with Bluetooth headphones and speakers. Also, while a good pair of USB headset or speakers provide a great gaming experience, the pesky wires make it quite a hassle to use. But fortunately, you don’t have to worry anymore as we’ve got some great Nintendo Switch Bluetooth adapters options here that are perfect for the Switch so that you can get the best audio possible. Let’s get into it.

How to Use Bluetooth Headphones with your Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite

  • The HomeSport Bluetooth Transmitter for Nintendo Switch is a very small Bluetooth transmitter that connects to your Switch’s USB Type-C port. It’s only 1.89 inches wide and 0.35 inches high with three LED indicators, weighing 0.16 ounces.

Because the Switch uses its Bluetooth feature to communicate with its wireless controllers and other gaming consoles, it doesn’t recognize and allow Bluetooth headphones or headsets to connect directly to the system. This is why in order to use Bluetooth with your Switch (and Switch Lite), you would need to buy a Bluetooth adapter or dongle. In order to use it, simply connect the adapter to the USB-C port or headphone jack of your Switch depending on the model of the dongle. After, you can easily pair your headphones to the adapter by making sure it’s in pairing mode and following pairing instructions of your Bluetooth headphones of choice.

Today we’re taking a peek at the latest update to Nintendo Switch, released in April of 2021. This update may load to your Nintendo Switch device automatically – you might never know it even loaded in the first place. If, however, you’d like to make sure it’s loaded to your Nintendo Switch device, the process to check is relatively simple.

The latest version of the standard Nintendo Switch software as distributed by Nintendo includes one note. This update includes “general system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.”

Outside checks from the folks at mtheall suggest there’ve been changes to NgWord*, System Version, and Bluetooth SysModule. This may mean that we’ll have ever-so-slightly better Bluetooth connectivity with the device – though it’s unlikely that we’ll really notice the difference if we’re using a Switch without using the controllers wirelessly.

At the same time, this could be an indication that the Nintendo Switch ecosystem will soon be open to a wider variety of 3rd-party controllers. That’d mean better connectivity for multiplayer games and a possible expansion of the ways in which Nintendo Switch works with multiplayer games once we see the next device – Nintendo Switch Pro(?) – later this year.

Per OatmealDome, patch 12.0.1 also updates BSD Sockets – for connections made via the internet. *They’ve also update the “swear words list.” We’ve not yet been able to export said swear word list, but entering any number of swear words in your Nintendo Switch as a name should give you a good idea of what’s censored.

Nintendo Switch version 12.0.1 (distributed April 19, 2021) is ready to roll for all Nintendo Switch devices right this minute. If you’d like to verify that you have this update right now, head to Settings, System Settings, and System Update. The “current version” should be 12.0.1. If your current version is less than 12.0.1, you should be able to manually force the update now.
