The Update for Nintendo Switch Brings Numerous New Features

Nintendo has released system update version 4.0.0 for the Nintendo Switch, finally adding the long-requested features to transfer save data and capture video. Instead, the gaming firm only officially announced the new video capture and data transfer features in the update.

Lastly, taking into account all their handheld DS systems, the SNES classic, and the Switch, Nintendo has claimed the majority of hardware sales for the month of September.

The Nintendo Switch can now support Bluetooth wireless headphones that uses USB receivers.

Pressing the Switch controller's capture button still creates a screenshot, while pressing and momentarily holding now saves the 30 seconds of gameplay that occurred beforehand; clips can be trimmed at the beginning and end of each clip, and then posted to Facebook or Twitter. Ubisoft's Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was the 7th best selling individual game of the month, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild finishing 10th and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe 11th. However, you should know that this is a permanent migration.

Facebook launches U.S. food delivery service on its website
The company said in a blog post that it signed on food ordering services such as EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash and Olo. Facebook also confirmed that it is teaming up with specific restaurants, including Jack in the Box, Panera, and Five Guys.

Furthermore, the new update also brings numerous new user icons for Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey.

The added support for Bluetooth headphones for the Nintendo Switch was first discovered by a user on Reddit. Also, you will have the ability to pre-purchase and pre-load particular games from the eShop. While the feature is useful for sharing those cool moments with your friends, it only supports certain games.

The new update also changed the look of the Newsfeed. It's not a patch on the convenience that Bluetooth audio would provide for wireless headphones on the go, but opens the door for third party accessory makers to create a form fitting dongle or adapter.

The process to transfer save data between two Nintendo Switch units is a bit lengthy, but at least the option is finally available for gamers.
