Switch on your TV

Well, it isn’t called “Switch” for nothing. You can use this device to turn your TV on wirelessly. All you need to do is press down the home button on your “Pro-controller” or “Joy-Con.” We should warn you that this feature is not compatible with all TVs. 

Locate a lost Joy-Con

If you misplace your Joy-Con controller, you can locate it with your console. Simply tap on the “gray controllers” button located on the home screen. After this, click on “Find Controllers.” Here, you can cause any connected controller to vibrate as you wish. Simply move around your home and soon, you’d locate the controller.

Voice chat with your friends

Once you have connected with your friends over Nintendo Switch, you can always voice chat with them. However, to do this, you must download the “Switch Online app” first. You can install the app on your iPhone or Android device. Ensure that the app is running while playing and you can chat with your connected friends.

Pair your Joy-Con with your PC, Mac, or Android

This should be very interesting. You can establish the connection via Bluetooth. Simply hold the “sync” button down after switching on your Bluetooth devices. Once the lights on the control flashes, it means that it is connected. You are all set and you can begin gaming on your PC, Mac, or Android devices.

Check Battery Life
