All you have to do is download the latest firmware patch, and you'll be able to find an option for Bluetooth Audio in the System Settings page. Hit "pair" and your Switch will get to work and search for available Bluetooth audio devices and connect.
Up to 10 devices can be saved on the Switch system. Players should note thought that only up to two Nintendo Switch wireless controllers can be used while connected to Bluetooth audio. Additional controllers synced will disconnect the Bluetooth audio device.
In July, Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) was revealed to the world. The latest version of the hybrid gaming console features a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port, 64 GB of internal storage, and enhanced audio.
