Nintendo Switch Voice Chat Will Be Possible Via Mobile App

These days that have followed the big Nintendo Switch press conference have included a slew of information that the big event did not mention for various reasons. The newly updated Switch portion of the Nintendo website has provided a lot of this additional information. While we did learn about the Nintendo Switch’s online gaming service requiring a fee, it was the Nintendo Switch website that revealed the free NES/SNES game that comes with every month of the paid subscription. Now, the website and Nintendo representatives have also shown how Nintendo Switch Voice Chat will function with the online gaming service.

It has been made known that Nintendo Switch Voice Chat will be made possible through a mobile app that works with the online service. Nintendo of America president and known body-readier Reggie Fils-Aime spoke recently with IGN to provide some clarity about Nintendo’s decision to make voice chat functionality available for Nintendo Switch through a mobile app, saying:

we want to reinforce the capability to take your experience with you on the go…. The ability to do matchmaking, voice chat through your phone, it’s a hell of a lot more convenient than having a gamer headset stuck into your backpack trying to do that. That’s why we’re doing it the way we are. We see the convenience, we see the ease of delivery. We think it’s going to lead to a better experience.”

It seems that Nintendo’s reasoning very much comes from wanting to emphasize the portability of the console. What do you guys think? Are you curious to try out the Nintendo Switch mobile app? What features do you hope it has? Let us know in the comments below!
