Nintendo Switch System Update was released in mid-September, which came as a big surprise to many users. The fact is that the new patch contains a function that gamers worldwide have been waiting for a long time. Of course, it is not the only innovation, and you can find a full description on Nintendo's official site.

First of all, we are talking about support and full integration with headsets, speakers, headphones, and other audio devices using Bluetooth. Although some users have previously reported that they have been able to test this option, it is only officially launched now. Unfortunately, it still does not work with microphones, but when using it, you can connect a pair of wireless Joy-Cones (in addition to headphones). The developers also drew gamers' attention to the fact that Bluetooth audio will not be available if you play over a local wireless network.

This is the most anticipated update that all Switch users have greeted with joy, but the news doesn't end there. The firmware 13.0.0 also provides an update for docking stations that use LAN ports (they will be present on new Switch OLEDs). Besides, you now have the option of "maintaining" the connection while your console is in sleep mode. It will allow you to download and install content even when you do not use the device. It is enabled by default, but you can switch it off if necessary. The developers also improved stick calibration and added the opportunity to check the internet connection to determine what frequency it is using.

As a reminder, a new Nintendo Switch OLED model with a modern screen, superior color reproduction, and improved sound is expected to be released at the end of October this year. Some of these updates were made just in anticipation of the new console and will be used on it.
