The Nintendo Switch doesn't currently support Bluetooth headsets but that could change.
Pretty much everyone : https://www.youtube.com/wat...
lol, the worst part is that your are right!! XD
Welcome to 2003 nintendo.
Maybe one day they'll evolve to 2004 standards and finally let us send text messages to friends.
Maybe they’ll get to 2001 standards and let me search for friends online
I'll no longer have to worry about keeping a pair of functioning wired headphones.
Do it- wired headphones into the Dualsense pad is surprisingly good and low cost if you already have something. I've been using a 10+ year old pair of Bose QuietComforts.
lol, 300 dlls + taxes well spend. XD
What, you meant people spent this much because Bluetooth feature is their main buying-point?
Holy crap 4 years I’ve wanted this
Nintendo are always like apple in how they give you basic functions so late to the party that it feels like it's such an achievement
Why? It still won't support in game chat.
dang that is a burn
So you can watch Netflix with wireless earbuds.... wait.
If you want to chat use your phone
What years is it now boomer?
Doug Bowser, is that you?
Wow a big old middle finger from Nintendo. These consoles have HAD BT functionality but they blocked it with software? lol sounds about right
I thought I was the only one thinking this? What the hell am I missing?
I honestly just figured my switch was missing the physical radio or whatever is needed for BT to work. Not that Nintendo purposefully blocked it to "enable at a later date". Man I hate that company lol
All the Switch controllers are bluetooth. It's always been a mystery why they had it disabled for everything else. I always assumed it had something to do with either wireless interference with the joy cons or covering some kind of security vulnerability.
Joy-Cons and other controllers connect VIA Bluetooth to the switch. It's why with a little effort you can use them on a PC also. They have had form day one just blocked for audio devices.
Will I have to pay for this? lolz
You only have six months to sign up Bluetooth access
Nintendo fans: "OMG THE FUTURE IS HERE" Literally everyone else: "... wait, it doesnt have bluetooth? really?"
Haven't been keeping up with switch functionality for a while but why do I get the feeling a software update would give us the option to back up our save files on our own external drives?
A jailbroken switch can saves and store all the games on External hard drive as well.
I still used wired when I need to, got a nice pair of Bose SoundSport from a few yrs ago for 100$. I rather use wired don't have to worry about charging another device.
I was able to play with a wireless headset with my astros headset.
I don't get how everyone is behaving like nintendo is late with a basic feature when the other consoles do not support bluetooth headsets either.
what? WHAT?? you're joking, right?
I wish I was. If anyone out there knows of a method to get it to work with ps4 or ps5 without an adapter let me know
Sure Nintendo is late to the game, right? Try using stand alone Bluetooth with your PS4PRO or X1X! Even the newest last gen consoles didn't support stand alone Bluetooth!
Mean while the Xbox Series headsets can connect to two bluetooth devices at once...
