The Nintendo Switch Online app enhances your online gameplay experience on your Nintendo Switch™ console. You can use voice chat while playing compatible games—and check game-specific services even when you're not playing with your Nintendo Switch. ◆ Use voice chat during online play Now, even more software supports voice chat! You can enjoy voice chat in different ways depending on the type of game you're playing. Chat with everyone in your room or split voice chat into teams and have it out head-to-head! In games that support the Online Lounge feature, you can invite friends to play with you via social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Of course, you can easily invite your Nintendo Switch friends too! Note: To use these services, a Nintendo Switch game compatible with this app is required. You can check the current list of voice-chat-compatible software within the app. (Even more software will be added in the future!) ◆ Access game-specific services You can use these services to check your rankings, match records, and other vital information related to specific games! You will also have access to a variety of features that will help take your online-gameplay experience to the next level. Attention: ● A Nintendo Switch console, a Nintendo Account, and compatible software are required to use these features. ● A Nintendo Switch Online subscription is required in order to use online-play services on Nintendo Switch (some software excluded). ● You must be at least 13 years or older to use this app. ● In addition to Nintendo Switch friends, this app can also connect you to your social-media contacts. ● A persistent Internet connection is required to use this app. Cellular data may be used. ● May contain advertisements and product placement.



  • Poor excuse for a “service”

    By AliceCooperFanAnthony
    There’s nothing to it. 8 games are supported for voice chat, 1 game (splatoon) has any “game specific services” Have you seen Sony’s PSN app? It lets you buy and download games without having to be near it. Nintendo can do better.
  • Needs an update!!!!

  • 🤔😔

    For an app to actually deserve one star the app needs to be a scam or not do anything. This app is neither. It is very useful (if you use it as a splatoon 2 companion app, but as a voice chat app it bad) and I would like to see this with other games. The voice chat needs to be on the switch with the app as an option and companion app. I know this won’t happen, but it would be awesome if you could play the nes games on this app. There is no reason why it would be impossible. Do it Nintendo. Also people say it crashes and that they can’t sign in but I haven’t had either of those problems. The crashes might happen with voice chat on but otherwise fine. It IS NOT because I have a good phone either. I have an iPhone 5s.
  • Wouldn’t work with my account

    By Thank u, Ness
    I’m under 13 and I thought I could download this so I could use it with Splatoon 2. But, when I logged in it said I had to be 13 to use it. Whaaa???
  • Dont see the whole use of this app

    By DEYVIP17
    As of now useless. Not even close to Xbox or Ps4 app.
  • App doesn’t work with my account.

    By OOFer 26
    I got the app and logged in and it automatically said that the service does not work with me account.

  • Voice chat

    By Katie plays
    Voice chat does not work. At all.
  • Too many bugs

    By Arzola21
    There are way too many bugs on this for it to even be live! It keeps crashing.
  • Crashes A LOT and lacking in features

    By Davidov64
    I could barely get through a match in smash brothers before the app would crash on me. And it’s annoying it will cut out the communication in between matches during loading time. Mario Kart was a little better but just like my kart, kept crashing. I really wish you could just select friends and do a call no matter what games you’re playing just so you can have a conversation. Please fix this app and add features. Until then I’m using discord
