Nintendo Switch might receive Bluetooth audio support in latest firmware

Datamined information about the latest Nintendo Switch update shows that Bluetooth audio support has been added to the hybrid console, suggesting that we could see Bluetooth headset compatibility in the future.

According to OatmealDome, a Nintendo and Mac-focused data miner, Nintendo Switch firmware update 12.0.0 added audio support to a Bluetooth driver, which could allow Bluetooth audio devices to be connected to the console and suggests the first step toward Nintendo enabling Bluetooth headset support.

Currently, the Nintendo Switch does not support wireless Bluetooth headsets, meaning that all the best Nintendo Switch headsets must use a wired connection to fit the 3.5mm headset jack or else opt for some sort of unofficial adapter. It’s possible that this will change in the future.

According to Nintendo Life, the official patch notes for update 12.0.0 indicate that the update was intended to fix an issue with the save back function, resolving communication errors that could occur during the process. However, the patch notes make no mention of the added audio support.

“We have fixed the issue with the save data backup function, where in rare cases the automatic backup of saving data is interrupted if a communication error occurs during the completion of the save data backup process,” the patch notes read.

It could be that this update is just a simple backend fix for something unimportant, or laying the groundwork for Bluetooth support in the future.
