Nintendo Switch Update

Nintendo Switch Firmware Update 11.0.0 Just Released And Includes Some Big Improvements

The biggest Nintendo Switch update in some time has just hit and it brings some major improvements. The biggest one is being able to quickly share screenshots to either your mobile or move them to your computer over USB. This is a huge improvement over needing to move your MicroSD into a reader on your computer or share the screenshots to social media.

The update will also let you priorities downloads when you have multiple going at once, meaning that you can actually select what you want to download first.  From a cloud point of view, those that use multiple Nintendo Switch consoles will be able to automatically download game saves from the cloud.

There’s a new Nintendo Switch Online app that allows you to check membership status as well as get the latest information from Nintendo Switch online.

On the user page, you’ll see a new trending page that shows what your friends are playing or have recently started playing. There’s also new Super Mario avatars (which to be honest might be the best part of the update).
