Nintendo Switch Online App Now Works In Sleep Mode

Nintendo Switch Online finally supports voice chat while your phone is locked

It isn't exactly a secret that the online systems for Nintendo Switch launched in a sorry state. Most notably, it required users to keep their phone unlocked with the app open in order to run, otherwise, it wouldn't work.

The major change is that now, voice chat will continue working if you open other apps on your phone, or if your phone goes into sleep mode.

Moms clap back at Kate Hudson for calling her C-section 'lazy'
Some people online even said they would no longer support Kate's successful athletic clothing line Fabletics over her comments. Kate Hudson has found herself in hot water after she jokingly referred to having a caesarean as "lazy".

Voice chat will now continue during sleep mode. In addition to voice chat improvements and bug fixes, the Google Play Store mentions that Bluetooth support for devices has also been improved. See, unlike what Sony and Microsoft did for the PlayStation and the Xbox, Nintendo has chosen to put its new console's chat functions in a separate app for Android and iOS.

Nintendo has rolled out an update for the Switch Online app that might finally make it usable. It's worth noting, however, that on Android devices on 6.0 (Marshmallow) or later, voice chat will not work in sleep mode if power-saving mode is active, though it should still work in the background of other apps regardless. For more details, please refer to the official website for your smart device.
