Nintendo Switch Online App

The Nintendo Switch Online app enhances your online gameplay experience on your Nintendo Switch™ system. With this app, you can access game-specific services, view your online friends, and use voice chat during online play—all of which allow you to get even more out of online play. Titles with game-specific services include Animal Crossing™: New Horizons, Super Smash Bros.™ Ultimate, and Splatoon™ 2, and each is available through this app. Note: A Nintendo Switch Online membership (sold separately) is required to use certain features of this app. ◆ Software with game-specific services:  ・ Animal Crossing™: New Horizons    ・ Send custom designs made in Animal Crossing     titles for the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems to     Animal Crossing: New Horizons    ・ Use your smartphone to input chat messages     for in-game communication    ・ Check whether your Best Friends are online  ・ Super Smash Bros.™ Ultimate    ・ View posted videos and images    ・ Queue up user-created stages for downloading to your game    ・ View notifications about upcoming events  ・ Splatoon™ 2    ・ Check rankings and stage schedules    ・ View detailed results from battles or Salmon Run ◆ View your online friends You can see which of your friends are online from your smartphone. You can even see which games they're playing. Note: Some friend features, like adding friends, can only be accessed from a Nintendo Switch system. ◆ Use voice chat during online play From this app, you can join in on voice chat while playing supported software online. By using the app, your voice-chat status will be automatically synced with the game status—and in games that support team battles, like Splatoon 2, you can choose to chat with just the players who are on your team. Attention: ● Nintendo Account age 13+ required to access some online features, including voice chat and social-networking services. ● Nintendo Switch Online membership (sold separately) required to use certain features. ● Nintendo Switch system and compatible Nintendo Switch software required to use voice chat and other features. ● Compatible smartphone required. ● Persistent Internet connection required. ● Data charges may apply. ● May include advertising.

  • Great. 5/5

    By mango_hawaii
    I mostly play animal crossing, as some people may know there is a typing feature in the actual game but it takes very long. I bought the membership so i could use my phone to type. Very useful and i’ve never had any issues using it. I haven’t used the vc features yet because I don’t really need it but if i have problems i’ll update.
  • not free 2/5

    By ndmdnfndjdhshd
    I just wanna import animal crossing sh and you have to pay. I paid 100/200 USD for the switch and i have to pay another 60 to import clothes? unbelievable
  • Nutendo 5/5

    By jgfudjrjg
    Nutendo,s are the best for you guys
  • I wish you could.. 3/5

    By KeirstONL
    I wish the notifications popped up on your phone notifications like.. hey! “Name” is online instead of going to the app and keep checking. I would give it a solid 5! Maybe even messaging but that’s all up to switch haha. Just wish them notifications showed up on my phone when someone is active
  • Just needs a screen share feature of something 5/5

    By Aidyl75
  • Can y’all port this game off of struckd 5/5

    By ptterson lane
    Please add my favorite game off of struckd called dark ops please respond and do this! Please.
  • App isn't helpful 2/5

    By octobersky0214
    This isn't much of a system companion app compared to alike apps made by other brands. All you can really do is see which friends are on and the voice char system. I changed my Smash Bros. Ultimate spirit team but the usefulness stops there. You can't add to/manage your friends list. You can't browse your own nor friends achievements or any other info. I believe the store is a separate app for some reason. Other gaming system companion apps like XBox includes everything I listed and a lot more, all in one single app that is still very user friendly. I would like to see a lot of additions or changes made to this app in the future.
  • Why you make this app? 1/5

    By CyHunterX
    I download recently the app and i want it use it. But i can’t. The app open guide to connect with the platform in the log in process i select my account and loading and crash all the time i make the step i want log in. Nintendo fix the app app to expand the experience. But include voice chats in the switch perse is gonna be better.
  • Needs a better way to chat 3/5

    By Anon_bruh
    The VC is okay but,having a way to send text messages to your friends could make for better experience
  • Cole Godfrey 4/5

    By jdgfhehdyhe
    The only thing i reccomend is eshop access on the app. I want a game and i dont have my switch rn and im searching eshop and this is the top one but there is no eshop on the app.
  • Needs more 3/5

    By Maxwell's review
    The reason I got it was because I wanted a quick way to access nso, but really you can’t do as much as when you open nso’s app on switch, which is disappointing.
  • Could be better… 3/5

    By parzival3002
    I’d love to add a lot more games, and a voice chat across any game
  • I wish 5/5

    By ian jean louis
    I wish there was an app called Nintendo joy con finder and Nintendo pro controller finder but I don’t see it so please make an app called Nintendo joy con finder and Nintendo pro controller finder and please make Nintendo joy con finder and Nintendo pro controller finder free apps
  • WHY 5/5

    By moonhewrt
  • Can’t add friends via the app 1/5

    By Cup of bagels
    This should be very basic functionality that is lacking
  • Garbage 1/5

    By McNasty206
    Makes me want to sell my switch I can’t even log into the app because 4 years ago when I set up my account I was on android and used the dumb authenticator and now I’m on Apple and I can’t even access my acount because to do so I need the stupid code and what really pisses me off I just bought a year online with this trash
  • BAD BAD BAD 1/5

    By dtgyhtw7gd*r3h*5e34(n
  • Cool but I don’t know how to play 4/5

    By polar seal
    This game is really cool but there’s just one problem I don’t know how to play it
  • Not happy 1/5

    By KrissiMarieMUA
    I’ve had a nintendo switch for a while. And I’ve been connected to mommy active acct and NOW I can’t even log in through the app?!?!?! Trash!!!!! I know my acct is right becuz I’m able to log in through the website but can’t through the app?!?!?! So annoyed!!!!!!! “Page can not b displayed please start the process over from the beginning in your web browser” 50 times later I GET LOCKED OUT OF MY ACCT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TRASH TRASH TRASH!!!!!!!
  • iPhone 13 1/5

    By LlamaLadybug
    Ever since I switched to an iPhone 13, the app has not been letting me sign in; the page cannot be displayed. I love Nintendo and I want to be able to access the features on the app again, please look into this issue.
  • App won’t connect to account 1/5

    By HBK's Bald Spot
    I cannot connect to my Nintendo account using this app. I can do so in my Switch, my pc and mobile browser, all using the same password. Why does this not work if I’m paying for it???
  • it’s alright 3/5

    By ripkobe1125
    the app is alright, however i restarted my animal crossing island, and it’s still connected to my old one. (it’s on the same account)
  • Use mainly for ACNH 4/5

    By kimkey
    I really like the app so that I can access additional ACNH content. The newspaper feature is adorable, and I like being able to do some designing even when I don’t have my game with me. I would love if you would add a museum donation tracker for art on the ACNH portal.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By MrC0ffee
    App crashes every time I log In!
  • Nintendo you are really sb. Worst algorithm ever. 1/5

    By F_Nin571
    F word to you. Messy arrangement of players in matches. Treat players unfairly. F U.
  • Lacking a lot of basic features 1/5

    By Braulio3000
    Party chat? Direct messaging? Group chats? Accesing the store? Bare bones app with nothing useful other than seeing who is online.
  • Merge this with My Nintendo App and bring to West 2/5

    By Schultzy2b2
    Merge this app with the My Nintendo app in Japan, enable a party chat feature for “best friends”, a text chat feature, game invites, themes, playtime metrics, embedded the eshop store here so we can favorite games and purchase for download, add funds, etc. I don’t mind the solution being an app, just wish the app was robust! Make it easy for informed consumers of Nintendo products to connect with friends online in 2022 and beyond… this is kind of sad to even have to suggest. I’d much rather use this app than discord if it worked more seamlessly with the switch hardware. Perhaps I can click voice chat on my switch and, boom, I get a notification on my phone to start the room, or vice versa. Oh and… for the love of goodness add themes already…. And about 100 new game icons would be nice.
  • Pretty good! 5/5

    By mia good
    I don’t really understand why people don’t like this,it’s neat and organized especially with the new update,I don’t get why it gets so much hate,so excited for the new update!!!
  • Online is crap and no support 1/5

    By runislow
    I’ve reached out for two months since I bought the online family pack I still can’t get online. I never get an email back,text or call thanks for ripping me off.
  • Turnip prices 1/5

    By b00nz0r
    Turnip prices on the animal crossing page of this app shows everyone’s price, not your current price making it absolutely useless. This is on purpose and not how stocks, the thing they base this on, work. It’s Nintendo purposely making the app worthless and only used to get coins which I haven’t seen the shop update so once you buy all that you want to buy it’s worthless. Nintendo doesn’t know how to make modern video games, all people that have no clue how things work making final decisions.
  • Not letting me login 3/5

    By uninugget123
    Every time I login it say This page cannot be displayed. Please start the process over from the beginning. Note: Do not use the Back button on your web browser. And it is getting frustrated because I can’t get in to my account please help
  • Is pretty good for getting the gear you want in Splatoon 4/5

    By CharCamX
    I play Splatoon and it’s pretty good to see the gear u want and use it in game I also play super smash bros and it’s good to see what the community is doing
  • Change the set up 1/5

    By Nasir pratt
    This game is very hard to set up. Too many instructions and too many payments. I am only 12 and I think that you need to end this bad app’s rules. On the behalf of all kids, preteens snd teens, I ask you to end this madness and give people of all ages set up an account and play for free. Do this again and I will tell my family about itFrom Anonymus 11
  • Amazing! 5/5

    By acnh_fan
    This app changed that way I play Animal Crossing! I didn’t know there was even news for my island on here! I feel like everyone should use this app if they play Animal Crossing: New Horizons!
  • Not enough content 3/5

    By nate: the corgi lover
    I just think for a whole app I should at least have a little more stuff you can do on it
  • Animal Crossing 4/5

    By Curie0
    On the game Animal Crossing it is used to chat with friends and family. Yes there have been some problems with Nintendo but on Animal Crossing it’s great. All the other games I will be ok with people saying stuff about but it’s very useful on Animal Crossing.
  • Please please add landscape mode to the iPad 3/5

    By jangelsb
    It’s very frustrating trying to use the keyboard to chat in Animal Crossing when the app is only in portrait mode
