First, download the available software update: V13.0.0. This can be done through the Start menu as long as the portable device is connected to the Internet. Once downloaded, it should be installed automatically. A full installation may take from a few minutes to an hour.
Once the switch is ready, the devices can be added following these steps:
Users can add headphones or hearing aids and / or up to two wireless drivers. However, any audio reproduced via Bluetooth will automatically turn off at the beginning of a wireless multiplayer game, which implies that two players will compete sitting side by side. Up to 10 devices can be saved at a time.
Nintendo reminded them of its users to verify and possibly adjust the volume of the system if they have added a new audio device.
Nintendo has published a specific support page for more information on how to manage and add Bluetooth devices.
