With the release of update version 13.0.0, Nintendo Switch users can now pair Bluetooth audio devices. There are some limitations but in this guide, we are going to walk you through how you can pair Bluetooth audio devices to your Nintendo Switch.
Pairing Bluetooth Audio Devices With Nintendo Switch
First, you need to download and install the latest update. Head into system settings and select system options and select system update. Select yes in order to download the latest version.
Once the latest updates have been installed you can now connect your Bluetooth audio devices to the Nintendo Switch. Head into the system settings and select Bluetooth Audio, which is the new option that you are going to get after the update. Now select the option to pair. The Nintendo Switch will now search for audio devices that it can pair with.
The console can remember up to 10 devices. If you want to pair another one after that then you will need to delete a device from the list. Note that there are some limitations. Only a single Bluetooth device can be connected to the Switch at a time. Bluetooth microphones cannot be connected and Bluetooth audio will be disconnected during local communication. So if you start a local wireless multiplayer session your Bluetooth audio device will be disconnected. Furthermore, only two wireless controllers can be connected while using Bluetooth audio. If more people want to play then you will have to disconnect your headphones.
If you want to disconnect the audio device then you can head back into the settings menu and go into Bluetooth Audio. Find the name of the device that you want to disconnect. Select the device and then select the disconnect device option. Your audio device should be detected the next time you want to connect it but if it does not then you can do that manually as mentioned above.
This is how you can pair your Bluetooth audio devices to the Nintendo Switch. If you have issues charging your Samsung Galaxy buds then check out our guide on how you can fix the issue.
