When the Nintendo Switch Online app released for free back in July, it was nothing to write home about due to the many ways it’s Voice Chat ceases to function and how much and quick it consumes the battery.
But now a new update is out and while the app might not be perfect just yet, it is at least, a little bit better and here are its full patch notes:
* * * * *
- Voice chat will now continue when other apps are opened. (*1)
- Voice chat will now continue during sleep mode. (*2)
- Improved support for Bluetooth devices. (For Android devices only.)
(*1) This excludes apps with audio output or apps that use the microphone.
(*2) If the power-saving feature is activated on devices using Android 6.0 or later, voice chat may be interrupted after the device has entered sleep mode. To use voice chat during sleep mode, go to Other Settings > Power Saving Settings in the app and deactivate battery optimization on the Android device. For more details, please refer to the official website for your smart device.
