The Nintendo Switch Online app was updated to version 2.0.0 this morning, bringing with it a slew of changes that are absolutely the best.
This is the biggest overhaul of the app since its release in 2017, and it follows the latest update Mission updates and rewards to Nintendo Switch Online.
Here are the patch notes, courtesy of Nintendo via App Store:
– The overall design of the application has been updated.
– You can now see which of your friends are online.
– You can change the online status settings.
– You can see your friend’s code.
– Other minor changes have been made.
The extras like seeing your friend’s code (which you can now copy and paste instead of painstakingly typing all twelve numbers), or even seeing if your friends are online without turning on your key are really simple on the surface, but nice little updates.
But the new look is sleek, and more user-friendly than the original design. We hope that the application will receive more updates constantly, and more games will be implemented in the service. The app has some pretty cool and weird ideas, but having to run a voice chat through it for specific games has always been tricky.
Are you still using the app almost five years after it was first launched? Let us know in the comments.
