It’s hard to believe we’re only three months on from the launch of the Switch, which is well on its way to selling three million units. Demand is so high Nintendo can’t manufacture the hybrid console fast enough. At the same time, it needs to continue fixing bugs and improving the user experience, so yesterday Switch System Update v3.0.0. was released, and it’s packed full of improvements.
This system update includes features that let you:
Add friends from your Nintendo 3DS™ and Wii U™ Friend Lists to your Nintendo Switch™ console’s Friend List.
Opt to receive notifications for when your friends appear online.*
Search for missing controllers.
Search for and subscribe to game-specific news content from the News List screen.
Increase and decrease system volume via the Quick Settings menu. Headphone volume can also be set to a higher level.
How to update your Nintendo Switch console
If your Nintendo Switch is connected to the internet, your console will download the update automatically.
Once the download is complete, you’ll be asked if you’d like to install the update. Be sure to save any game progress before you continue.
When you’re ready to install the update, choose “update” to install. Your console will restart to complete the update.
