The idea itself is good but in reality the app needs certain improvements to make it truly effective and also to add more accessible games to the list.
The Nintendo Switch Online app was developed to enhance your playing experience on the Switch system by enabling communication (voice chat) with other players and to access game specific services even if you aren’t playing.
What Does Nintendo Switch Online Offer?
The Nintendo Switch app makes your games more interactive. The main features of the app include:
Use voice chat while playing:This feature depends on what game you’re playing but generally you can chat with everyone in your room or even split up into teams and enjoy head to head games against each other. If your game includes the Online League feature, you can also invite friends to play via other social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter.
Gain access to game specific services:With these services, you will have access to vital information related to the software. You will also be able to access extra features of certain games improving your gaming experience directly. Some games that offer these service include Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Splatoon 2.
