Ahead of Nintendo making its new Switch OLED available for purchases, the company has added more functionality to its existing Nintendo Switch console with the ability to connect wireless audio products like earbuds and headphones via Bluetooth.

With a new update, Nintendo announced that the Switch console gets a new ‘Bluetooth Audio' page in the settings that will let users connect to headphones of their choice. The Indian Express tried this out with a pair of Apple AirPods and the feature seems to be working fine. Check out the tweet below.

The latest #NintendoSwitch update is now available, including the ability to pair Bluetooth devices for audio output.

Before the addition of the feature, users wanting to wear any form of wireless audio products would be forced to use a 3.5mm-to-Bluetooth adapter or headphones that came with wireless USB-adapters. The new feature should make things much more easier.

Limitations

With the new feature Nintendo Switch consoles can connect to Bluetooth headphones and earphones, but not without some limitations. For instance, users connected to Bluetooth audio will only be able to connect two wireless controllers at the same time. To connect more controllers, users will have to first drop the Bluetooth audio connectivity.
