Details about the Switch’s online app have been datamined from the console. Some fans have found this information by rooting around in the console’s data files and it seems to have a lobby function built in. The name was also found along with an image that comes with a typo which will hopefully get fixed when it becomes official.

Here is what was found within the source code:

You can invite friends to the room via
the Nintendo Switch Online Lounge app.


Code for friends to join the room without an invitation

With any luck, these features will be implemented soon as Splatoon 2 is set to be released next month which uses the Nintendo Switch Online Lounge to match up players and enable voice chat.
