For all that money I paid for buying the switch than a game. Chat should have been connected to the switch already and you should not have to download a dumb app. Then you have to pay for online play just not right!! Also need to buy a SIM card and a internet cable cause the internet is slow 🤦🏾♀️ when you play on switch!
This is trash. Why don’t we have a normal voice chat like ps4 or Xbox one? I don’t see Nintendo ever changing this and if they do it will cost an extra five bucks.
Does not support many games this app is useless I don’t understand whats so hard making it easier to communicate with friends and other players. Like Pokémon sword nintendo wants gamers to play online but not communicate with one another come on nintendo step it up 💪🏼
Whenever I got Nintendo switch online, it won’t let me use it after my brother got me it, every time I log out and log in, it said, “This service cannot be used with your Nintendo account.” Please fix this Ps, learn how to make everyone that’s young or not have that message
So I link my Nintendo Account or at least try it says its not available for my Nintendo account
Nintendo, I don’t know what you were thinking with this, or any other aspect of your online gaming platform. It almost seems as though you’ve never seen it done... along side having a PHONE APP for chat... why would you ever make it difficult to party up with friends in game?
Love the Idea that Nintendo did say Back in2016 only 3 games is listed on here Super Smash Bros, Splatoon 2, mariokart. Wish this App can do Buy digital Games and it be ready on your Nintendo Switch. More games Spend Gold coins for Exlusive stuff. And also more. This App has potential of Being Really Well! But until that day comes it is Not worth Downloading it! Heck Sony and Microsoft app is Well establish and done right. It seems they are not Focus in this App! Plus I can see this as you can buy assories too! Like Joycons another Switch ,Lite, rumor pro, or even Ac adapters. Hopefully Nintendo is Listening and Reading the Reviews and also the Complaints from this App! Plus this can be a well Done app!
I can't buy Splatoon outfits(
I think you should be able to buy Nintendo switch online through the app because it’s a Nintendo switch online app and it would only make sense
