When you’re not sitting face to face with your Nintendo Switch, you can do other things. It’s been a long time since then game consoles have companion applications or related applications. You install them on your Android, iOS, or iPadOS and they are used to chat with friends, browse game stores, and more. The PlayStation, the Xbox, and the Nintendo Switch have it.
But speaking of Switch, its official app, Nintendo Switch Online, leaves much to be desired. First, it is limited to online gaming features. So you need a paid subscription. And it is only compatible with some games. Also, if we compare it with the PlayStation or Xbox app, we will miss out on many features such as access the storereceive notifications when a new game is released, or find out about official offers. All this you will have to do, yes or yes, from the Nintendo Switch itself.

One of the notable features of the Nintendo Switch is that you can take screenshots while playing in an easy and comfortable way. Just press the button. But as you fill your Switch with screenshots, you’ll need move them to another place with more space.
