In its most recent 4.0 software update for the Switch, Nintendo has made it possible to transfer user and save data from one Switch console to another. While the new update included features like video capture and account transfers (to another Switch), one feature snuck into the update unannounced: support for wireless USB headphones. Just attach your Joy-Cons to the Switch unit and head over to the Controller section of the System Settings menu.

The Nintendo Switch can now support Bluetooth wireless headphones that uses USB receivers. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe had sold 3.54 million copies at that time. Nintendo will also approach developers who have used their characters in third party games, such as Mario + Rabbids, in order to implement video capture earlier, although any developer can patch support in for their games. This recording will be kept in your album.

With the latest update, players can now record the previous 30 seconds of their game, and even edit it and share via Facebook or Twitter. That said, only four games now support the new function: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and ARMS.

Users now have more customization options with new icons for Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild. The full instructions on how to do it is available on the official Nintendo website but it is to be noted that once you transfer, all existing data on the current console will be permanently deleted and there is no way to retrieve it back. Also, you will have the ability to pre-purchase and pre-load particular games from the eShop.
