IMG_1908 Nintendo has improved the Nintendo Switch Online App. Update version 1.1.0 was released on September 12, 2017, and it fixes the voice chat. Now, it will keep working even if you switch to another application or allow your device to fall asleep.


The full Nintendo Switch Online App version 1.1.0 updates are as follows.

  • Voice chat will now continue when other apps are opened. (This excludes apps with audio output or apps that use the microphone.)
  • Voice chat will now continue during sleep mode. (If the power-saving feature is activated on devices using Android 6.0 or later, voice chat may be interrupted after the device has entered sleep mode. To use voice chat during sleep mode, go to Other Settings > Power Saving Settings in the app and deactivate battery optimization on the Android device.)
  • Improved support for Bluetooth devices. (For Android devices only.)

The Nintendo Switch Online App is now available for Android and Apple iOS devices. Splatoon 2 is still the only game accessible within it.
