Nintendo Switch Online app reviews

  • This is not Nintendo ESHOP!!! 1/5

    By Ambience24
    I have been looking for the whole Nintendo app. This is only geared towards Splatoons or talking to people who play online with you. Well since Nintendo can not develop an app that you can do everything on like PlayStation and Xbox then this app is a waste of download space. There are a lot of people who don’t chat playing these games and I only play single player games like Zelda Breath of the Wild and new games that are shooter games that they started adding to Nintendo which I’m thankful for (Pay Day2, Doom, etc. ). However I still have to go to google to look at eshop on my phone or connect my Switch to my phone just to look up new items or something coming out or game deals.
  • This app doesn't need to exist. 1/5

    By OfficerJeffrey
    Skype, Discord, or your own phone service are all way more convenient tools to talk to your friends while playing games. This app's function should be built into the Switch instead.
  • Kunchiwha please add this stuff at the nintendo switch 4/5

    By badzz1129
    The list that you need to add on the nintendo switch chrome 4.Roblox 5.this app be in nintendo switch console 6.parntel controlls so if the guardin/parent if they have a switch they controll from there and play then check in the same console but if you have parnetel contolls ON you cant buy it sorry its not about the app but i want to say it
  • “NS Online ” may be better 3/5

    By iiiiiiiiiiiin
    As above
  • Must read Nintendo 5/5

    By wow i am happy
    Hi Nintendo I have a switch and I want to say is add YouTube and Netflix on the switch do it can be on the home screen I have Hulu but I want Netflix and YouTube then I will be my fav device
  • Great Start 3/5

    By Bub2013
    This app is a great start and has a lot of potential. Yes, voice chat on phones are a bit silly for playing online. It should have been imbedded into the switch, like some third party headphones you can buy to voice chat with others. Sadly, this app only offers Splatoon 2 and not other games, but the switch is only a year old so you have to give it time. Plus some games do not even offer multiplayer mode like Splatoon 2. You can not voice chat or even play Mario Odyssey in multiplayer mode. Hopefully that makes sense. I believe Nintendo has a lot up there sleeves as new games are being developed. Then this app may help a lot. If you really wanted to voice chat there is always Discord or other voice chat apps, but if you are comparing it with Xbox or PS4 then you shouldn’t even own a switch because Nintendo does there own unique thing and most people are happy with what they are doing.
  • Solid app but where are the other games?? 4/5

    By ijustwritereviewsfornoreason
    OK Nintendo, I’ve been a fan since childhood and I’ll have you know that this app was an amazing idea however I have spotted a flaw immediately and want to bring it to your attention. I have noticed that Splatoon 2 is the only compatible game. I mean sure it’s a good game but I have Rocket League and would heavily enjoy if an update added the other online games. Please take my suggestion into consideration. Thank you Nintendo, you’ve always been a part of my early years!
  • Meh 3/5

    By Bleeblybloop
    This app... needs fixes, but it is nice that it tells you your stats for splatoon 2 but it needs to also allow you to see your switch profile, like play hours or friend code. I’m glad they fixed the problem with the whole thing where you hade to keep the app open to talk, but it still isn’t perfect.
  • This game is the worst 1/5

    By putdigufydrwrfufivig
    This should be built into the switch the game doesn’t even work they should figure out the software.
  • Far from a good app... 2/5

    By XxTrustworthyRewiewsxX
    It’s nice that this app tells about your stats and stuff for Splatoon 2, but it’s called the NINTENDO SWITCH Online app. It should be useful for more than just one game. I think it is idiotic that you need an app to use voice chat for ONE GAME! I think it should kind of play as the Xbox app does.
  • I haven't even used it for voice chat. 2/5

    By CarolTeaFan
    This is just a bad idea, even Splatnet. If I want to check my stats or report a player, I should be able to do that IN THE GAME. I know that an incomplete system for native voice chat has been discovered in the Switch; so Nintendo, please make that available when we start paying you to play online. I want to be able to talk to any one of my random team mates and tell them to help me. I know you're trying to protect the younger players, but this system doesn't work. Children's parents should be able to restrict the voice chat if it's needed. Please listen to your fans' requests. There is a stigma against you from Xbox, PS4, and PC fans because of this app. Please prove them wrong and make voice chat the way it has efficiently been for decades. The one positive aspect that made me give it an extra star is the wallpapers you can unlock for inking enough Turf in Splatoon 2. They're really cool; unfortunately these aren't the main feature of the app.
  • Annoyed 1/5

    By Switch_Kid
    DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE SPLATOON 2!!! Very annoyed... You can’t create like a Nintendo online group to talk to people without Splatoon 2!? You might as well create a Splatoon 2/Splatnet 2 app.
  • Terrible implementation 1/5

    By I love rolando
    Give us multiplayer options on the switch! Not an app. Also Bluetooth headphone audio/chat support. The switch has Bluetooth, enable it for headphones.
  • No way to even talk to your friends, what’s the point? 2/5

    By michaeljackson_mariahcarey
    If it weren’t for SplatNet Gear I’d delete this app already. Nintendo I expected better, removing MiiVerse was a stupid idea, what’s the point of adding people if we can’t even communicate? Ugh it’s 2018...! And idk if you’ve lived w anxiety but voice chat is a living h*ll!!!
  • Ok 5/5

    By cole😽😼😼👿👿😈😈
  • Disappointing 1/5

    By mattd123103
    Very disappointed with it app. I don’t have splitoon 2so It doesn’t have a use to me. You should make it so you can chat in the app with out having get the game.
  • Great game 👍🏻 5/5

    By Cori_Playz
    I would like to request an update...for the splatoon2 feature I was thinking that you could save a picture/wallpaper of your inkling with its equipped gear. THX in advance
  • Useless 1/5

    By Gooner1489
    This app is useless.
  • i agree with the others 3/5

    By Golden Galaxies
    the voice chat should be built into the nintendo switch, like seriously, i spent 300$ on a console and got a 60$ game and i have to download an app to check my stats?!?
  • I need to voice chat 2/5

    By JMcupCake
    At least make the age to allow you to play over 9
  • Mostly Useless 1/5

    By Thatblackguyyouknow
    This app is only compatible with Splatoon 2, if you don’t have that game it’s no use to you at the moment. Need to update this asap.
  • I Can’t Sign in with my account. 1/5

    By 1Babydoll74
    I’ve tried so many times to sign in but it won’t let me. It keeps saying, “This service cannot be signed in with your Nintendo Account.” And I should be signed in because my account is signed in with the Super Mario Run app and not this one. I also kept deleting, downloading, and trying to sign in to the app. But guess what, THAT DIDN’T WORK EITHER. This is why I hate this app, I can’t use it that’s why! I guess I’ll never be signed in for SOME APPARENT reason.
  • No party chat on the console? 1/5

    By Dannyisastud
    Why do I have to download an app to party chat? I like being able to hear game volume and party chat from the same headphones. Fix this please
  • Variety 3/5

    By HapCave
    I’m trying to get into competitive Splatoon 2, so I looked up SplatNet2 to order some gear. I found this instead, so I thought ‘Hm, why not?’ So I downloaded it. I was disappointed when I saw that the only game on here is Splatoon 2. Sure, I’ve been loving SplatNet2, but what if I want voice chat on Mario Kart 8 D.X. or share my status on BotW? I would love some variety. Thank you!
  • Needs improvements 3/5

    By Pitiens
    Please support landscape mode on the iPad and fix the refresh button. It doesn’t work on iOS device. - Please remove the exit button (the one that take you back to the main screen of game select) out of most screens. I always tap it as a confusion of going back from seeing a battle or item.
  • Stupid. 1/5

    By Binary vision
    Really? Splatoon2 is a kids game anyways. How many kids are really going to use this feature? Why not use voice chat on adult games like doom or payday2?
  • Not good for Nintendo's online payment. Also a horrible idea 1/5

    By Supercena1000
    I don't think we should be using an APP to voice chat with our friends. This feature should be built into the switch. Also if you want to protect young players, make a party system like Microsoft on Xbox One and Sony on ps4. And if that's not good enough, make the party system Friends only. What I'm trying to say, is that there are so many solutions to chatting. And Nintendo didn't follow one. Before we start paying you for online, PUT VOICE CHAT ON THE SWITCH! Also another reason this app is horrible, is because it only supports splatoon 2. Only that game out of all the games on this amazing console. Nintendo, listen to your fans. Or else, when people start paying online, you don't scratch your heads wondering why your not making as much money as you though. Not to mention your online history has already been horrible. We shouldn't be using an app to chat for a console game. All I'm saying is put voice chat on switch and listen to the community before we pay for online.
  • It’s an app... 1/5

    By Makeshiftrigger
    And if you have 7 friends you want to play splatoon 2 with them you’re in luck...otherwise you can only get splatoon gear with the app. You cannot create parties and chat without being in a special section of friend lobby for splatoon 2. Want to chat and rocket league? You can’t. Want to chat and Payday? Not with this app. Want to just chat while playing separate games? Not gonna happen. Want to join a party with a friend and play a game of splatoon against 6 other random matchmade people? Try again, this doesn’t exist. The most simple and necessary parts of online gaming are just purely missing from what would be an otherwise amazing time!
  • Review 1/5

    By Jimmyloversamich
    It only works for splatoon2 so if you want to do it with any other game you can't
  • Add more stuff please 4/5

    By Beach go'er
    I love the system, I like the app, but the only features in this is chat with friends feature and the only game synced with this is splatoon 2 wish that there were other games doubled with this besides that more features if possible
  • Useless 1/5

    By Vault Meay
    This is the Splatoon 2 app. No other game uses this, and I doubt any ever will. Even the Splatnet doesn’t have any unique features that wouldn’t be better suited for the console itself. I love you Nintendo, but come on!
  • Is this a joke? 1/5

    By Stingboogy5f
    Are they kidding us? What a garbage idea in the first place. Then, it only supports ONE game, splatoon 2. An entire garbage app for a single garbage game. Just add chat to the console you jerks. And why is only one game supported?
  • Nintendo! 2/5

    By Woomy!
    I have tried and over to get my Nintendo acc connected. It. Won’t. Work. If Nintendo could make this fix, it would make me real happy. I
  • Chinese need support 3/5

    By savior77
    Support please
  • What— 1/5

    By Mad Splat Player
    Honestly, I can’t even get into the app anymore for any online play with friends. It keeps telling me someone else is logged in (but nobody else has my login information) and it refuses to let me reset my password and whatnot to try and attempt to get back in. Might as well just go back to discord and forget this app.
  • Great for some things, but chat isn’t one of them. 2/5

    By NeedlenoseAR
    I love getting on here and checking my Splatoon 2 scores and Splatnet shopping. I, however, refuse to use the complicated chat system. It seems cumbersome and ridiculous in 2018. I understand child protections, but you’re also making it more difficult for adults to play together. Also needs more games, which I assume will come later.
  • This thing doesn’t work 1/5

    By Frst tim r8er
    I’ve tried everything I can think of I can’t get it to do anything
  • Won’t let me do ANYTHING 1/5

    By The guy who wrote this rating.
    Needs an update. Only lets me do Splatoon crud. I’ll change this review when you update and fix it!
  • Add text chat 3/5

    By Cheecho17
    I like the fact that you can chat with people online, but I wish that you send a text to the people in the match. Also, this should've been made into the Switch, so instead of having to get my phone, use it, wait for my phone to run low on battery, then switch to my wireless headphones, wait for my phone to recharge, and stop using my headphones, and repeat, this online chat should be put on the actual Switch.

    By its me not you
    Make it as well for other games such as Minecraft and nba2k18
  • WTH 2/5

    By K3nnyZ3r0
    This won’t work with me it says “This service cannot be used with your Nintendo account” that is very annoying because I want to talk with my FRIENDS!!!!
  • Awesome app 5/5

    By WUT RedStar
    It’s a great app but you should add features for arms and Mario cart 8 deluxe
  • Add this 5/5

    By MrAndrew1108
    Nintendo you should add so you can see what battery percentage your switch is at and to see where it is
  • A good app but i cant do it on a child account yet . 3/5

    By Phsyco girl
    The child account can’t be used for now . But there is a way to change your birth but still.
  • More games 3/5

    By Andrewpuffsicle
    This app only splatoon 2. What about like minecraft. Nintendo Switch Online needs more games to invite friends to.
  • It won’t let me sign in 3/5

    By Sanstheskeleton9
    So I wanted to use this app right? I signed in and it won’t work!! 😡
  • I am very dissatisfied. 1/5

    By Live Virus
    This is a verrry inconvenient program. I recently signed up for a service that does not work. Please show me your willingness to solve the problem.
  • Make for other games 2/5

    By TorqueTY
    I really like this concept, but i’d really like if this app was for other games too not just Splatoon 2. Maybe add updates to other games to make it happen or something, it would just be better if it was with more games.
  • This is useless 1/5

    By FireEagleYT
    It’s cool to have a discord+news website but this doesn’t even work and there’s discord when I link my account nothing happens it said incorrect
  • Its 2018, really? 1/5

    By Jaylen Yancy
    NINTENDO: Pay for our online service! But don’t worry it’ll have all* the online features your used to in 2018, but it’ll require a MOBILE APP. Please pay us. Thanks. *Actually, it’ll have basically none!
