Nintendo Switch Update Adds Bluetooth Headset Compatibility

New function does not include the use of bluetooth microphones

A Nintendo launched a new update 13.0.0 to Nintendo Switch which has been bringing a fan-requested feature since its release, the device now supports connection to headphones and other bluetooth audio devices, however bluetooth microphone compatibility was not included in this update.

An important detail is that Nintendo informs that only two wireless controllers can be used while the audio via blueooth is being used.

Other new features are the possibility of keeping the wired internet connection turned on in sleep mode, allowing content to be downloaded even without the device being turned on and the change in the calibration of the controller’s analogs.

A update 13.0.0 also includes a unique feature for the Nintendo Switch OLED that will be released in October that allows you to update the firmware of your LAN port Dock.

Finally, the function that shows if the device is connected to a 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz wifi network was added. Check out the update notes below in detail.

  • Up to two compatible wireless controllers can be connected to the system while using Bluetooth audio.

    – Continues after advertising –

  • Bluetooth audio cannot be used while local wireless communication is active.

  • Depending on the Bluetooth audio device, there may be some audio delay.

“Update Dock” has been added under System in System Settings for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch OLED, allowing software updates for Nintendo Switch docks with a LAN port.

Dock software updates are not available for Nintendo Switch docks without a LAN port.
This feature has not been added to Nintendo Switch Lite.

“Keep Internet connection in sleep mode” has been added to sleep mode in system settings.

When this setting is enabled, systems with wired Internet connections will maintain the Internet connection even in sleep mode. This allows software and additional content to be downloaded to the system while the system is in sleep mode.

When this setting is disabled, the system only connects to the Internet periodically, which decreases power consumption and delays downloads during standby mode.
Note: Systems that are not upgraded to version 13.0.0 or later behave as if this setting is enabled.

The method for starting “Calibrate control levers” in the system settings has been changed.

Under System Settings, go to Controllers and Sensors , select Calibrate Control Knobs, then fully tilt the stick in any direction and hold it tilted for a few seconds to start the calibration.

Users can now see if their wireless internet connection is using the 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequency band under “Connection Status” after selecting Internet in System Settings.
