So it fine I don’t need it much so not really nesasary but the online is worth it I can now play turf war all I want
Needs features 2/5
I understand this is just the beginning of the online service and there is much to do. But this app very little to offer. Something that would be a neat addition is to allow us to browse the online store and buy stuff there or add to wishlist. So that we may be able to check out the deals when we are away from our switch
Guys don’t dislike please:( 3/5
Nintendo everyone hates Nintendo switch online please help make it good
Making things overly complicated 1/5
Probably one of the stupidest ideas Nintendo has had, like why go through all this trouble just to be “different” than the other consoles? Why make things so complicated? Like is it really that hard just to add a proper messaging/invite system into the switch? Nintendo wants to be ahead of everyone else, but honestly, this is just flat out unnecessary. This isn’t innovative, it’s stupid.
Smash World 5/5
By im not ban im mr bean
By Justin Verdaguer
this app literally doesn’t open and when it does it crashes before i can even see anything. pile of garbage needs an update
Crashes often... 2/5
Voice chat makes the app crash. This happens on first launch and subsequent relaunches.
Nintendo Switch Online 5/5
I love it very much
But I think you should add voice chat for Fortnite
Needs to be updated 2/5
There are hundreds of games on the switch and the only game this app works with is splatoon 2. There are so many things that this app has the potential to do with other games. It needs to be reworked to make it seem more like a switch app and find more compatibility with other games. The potential is there and I love how it does work with splatoon two. But please do more work with it.

The apps fine, but Nintendo online is worse than the online on the Wii U AND it costs money. Please change this
2019 and Nintendo has this to offer for online play.... 1/5
By Just talk
I don’t understand how such a big company with so much money can’t offer their consumers a proper online experience. Even if you use this app, people hardly use it online cause it’s a hassle.
Crashes every single round of Smash 1/5
Impossible to use voice chat for more than one round at a time. This app is the main reason for purchasing the Nintendo Switch online pass. As of now it is a waste of money. I will not be renewing until this app is fixed.
Webviews for linking account seem to broken as sometimes buttons will do nothing and the keyboard will crash and disappear and I won’t be able to do anything in the app until I send it to the background and then open it up and it crashes
Don’t even know how to use it 1/5
Ok I REALLY like Nintendo switch but HOW am I supposed to know which game mode has voice chat!? Oh by the way is there a way to play games on this app?
I hate how if your under the age of 13 you can’t sign in pls fix this it is so bad
I really like this app, and I use it to chat with my friends on splatoon 2. But the thing that annoys me is that if your in a private battle it splits up the chat and you can only chat with the people on your team. Otherwise I really like it!
The Most Useless App On My Phone 1/5
This app is such a waste of space. An app for voice chatting in videogames? Completely pointless.
Smash voice chat 2/5
Voice chat works fine for me despite it needs to reconnect every time before and after a match in battle arenas. It is understandable if Nintendo doesn’t really want to deal with messaging, but at least give us an option to invite people to our battle arenas. I have met some friends just by playing online, but it’s so hard to play with them again because I have to search all the arenas and figure out where they are at. What’s the point of a friend list if you can’t even interact with them?!?! I’m not asking for a messaging function but a simple invitation function that every console out there has it. The app also seems like an undergrad’s programming project. It doesn’t even look like a developed app. If I show the app to my programming friends who don’t have a switch, they’d all laugh at it because it’s a total joke. Come on Nintendo, you can do better.
Should be on the console 1/5
The only game specific features are for splatoon. So why would I use this over discord? You can’t message or do anything with friends on the switch itself so what’s the point?
Nintendo please join the early 2000s. Swallow some pride see what Microsoft and Sony are doing and do that. This is almost useless.
A Broken Concept 1/5
By Zekester W
Sorry, but it they (Nintendo) want you to use your phone for voice chat and such, just use Discord if you're actually going to head that route. Makes no sense using they're special Nintendo app, which isn't even that great to begin with. They have clearly lost touch, and they fail to see that, much like what Blizzard said during their Diablo announcement, "Don’t you have phones?" Just because we have a phone in out pocket doesn't mean that we, as a community, want to stick to some sub-par middle man for something as simple as gaming and voice chat. 1 out of 5 stars. Grow up.
Bony Jonson 5/5
By boby jonson
Good for the price,and the app is free! People are mad becuse the SERVICE cost money but this is the app an the app is good
Crashes after every match! 1/5
Fix this pile of trash!
Needs revisions 2/5
The app audio isn’t half bad. However it’d be nice to stay in a consistent chat rather than hop in and out of one. For example: in Smash Ultimate, I start a friends only arena, and in the lobby we all chat, but then the game starts and the chat will pause and then gradually connect everyone again and then it’ll disconnect when the fight is over and then repeat and repeat. There’s need to be just one chat where it stays consistently connected not hop in and out of chats.
Nintendo is behind on everything and is why I’ve stepped away almost entirely. The company’s aesthetics are a decade behind in the gaming world in my opinion and only care about marketing to children and selling crap. Nintendo wants to have online play, but doesn’t want to support voice chat that can be totally supervised and restricted by parents if need be. Why is Nintendo now charging 20 + dollars for online play when they can’t support voice chat without using a 3rd party device??? Come on Nintendo get with the times and quit making things so damm difficult. I used to love Nintendo and it was such a huge influence of my childhood, but has gone entirely downhill. It’s a pity. Shame on you Nintendo!
Proud Gamer since 87-88
You should get it 5/5
This app is amazing
This is stupid and very inconvenient for gamers 1/5
By Not 3- D
This is super inconvenient for us gamers. Nintendo pretty much killed voice chat with this stupid app nobody wants to use. Without mentioning all the hookups and trouble u need to go through in order to make use of it. Boicot this crap. Bad move nintendo.
Lacking Basics 1/5
By ChefHead Chubs
You can’t access the store from the app, and the only game it’s shows I have stats for is splatoon and I don’t even own it. Should add achievements, game time, a friends tab, and a tab to view game highlights/screenshots at the very least. Honestly just make the Xbox app but for Nintendo, there’s basically no reason to use this over something like discord
Splatnet 2 1/5
Each time I go to use the Splatnet 2 feature, it never works. I have deleted the app multiple times and signed in over and over again but it never works. Can someone explain to me how to use it so that every time it won’t just show me the features page?
After deleting about 5 times I finally did it. It does work but why was the setup so difficult?
Good app, I like it unlike the rest of the internet 4/5
I may seem strange for liking a mobile app by Nintendo, but this actually helps me see my Splatoon stats, as well as voice chat (which I can’t use because I have no friends(well I have friends but there’s no text service))
Maybe you could add more game specific services like check out new setups in Mario Kart or check out the shop and stats in Ultimate.
Other than that, it’s good.
Please update for added support soon! 4/5
By Shush maker
I love this app, but I only use it for splatnet orders. I think Discord has the voice chat thing dominated, so maybe please try to add support for more games like mariokart and stuff.
Voice Chat? 4/5
By Ana Santamaria
I love the app I’ll be honest, but I still haven’t been able to use voice-chat
I have an iPhone X on the latest 12.1.4, when playing smash ultimate, the app always crashes. It would be appreciated if it was fixed very soon, I use it daily and it gets very frustrating having to continue to open the app and get back to the chat while playing.
Hello I just do it 5/5
Hello I just gotta is a fun day to play with you guys I love to see it but I’m not super Mario it is so sad to be sad that you have a big heart to come back to the world I will be a good many times you gotta I love it I gotta is a fun and sad.
It’s okay 4/5
It works fine from time to time.
Not bad. Could be better. 4/5
Now, this app is really good. I don't know if it’s because of compatibility issues, but whatever it is, I haven’t had any issues like crashes with this app like what others are saying. It is a great way to talk to Switch friends while in game, like the sole purpose of the app is. The problem is, it must be in a supported game. You cant call or message them to see if they are available. That’s something that irritates me because, as a Smash Ultimate player, I really like playing online with my friends, especially one in particular. I need to go through a bunch of arenas to figure out where he is, and I normally cant find anyone and give up. If you could add a messaging feature and restrict when you can call someone, I’d be happy to use this more, and you’d probably help not just me but many other users. Thank you for reading this (if you are).
No good 1/5
Constantly crashes when trying to use
Works well but isn’t compatible with enough games 3/5
By Hayden Ebersole
The Nintendo Switch Online app allows people to talk to each other while playing games online. Yes it is ridiculous that we have to use an app but it is kind of nice since you don’t need a mic to talk to people. All you need is the app. The problem with the app is there are only a handful of games compatible with it, and every game except for one of them is a Nintendo exclusive. I would like to be able to talk while playing 3rd party games like Doom and Payday 2; however, these games aren’t supported by the app. It’s incredibly frustrating when Nintendo says you can voice chat with other people using the voice app but it only works with a couple games out of the 1,000+ games on the Nintendo Switch.
Serves no purpose or use for Switch 1/5
I don’t play Splatoon. What else is this app do? Nothing? Like what is it for? Nothing!
It says I can’t log in because the service won’t work.
Fix it 1/5
By Treny titans
Every time I try to sign into it, even though I have Nintendo Switch Online. Its telling me to connect to the console even though it already was connected to it
App crashes all the time 1/5
By Music Gremlin
The app crashes constantly. Can’t use it
Poor excuse for a “service” 1/5
There’s nothing to it. 8 games are supported for voice chat, 1 game (splatoon) has any “game specific services”
Have you seen Sony’s PSN app? It lets you buy and download games without having to be near it.
Nintendo can do better.
Needs an update!!!! 1/5
Chat keeps crashing every time I use it to play smash brothers. It needs an update!!!!!
For an app to actually deserve one star the app needs to be a scam or not do anything. This app is neither. It is very useful (if you use it as a splatoon 2 companion app, but as a voice chat app it bad) and I would like to see this with other games. The voice chat needs to be on the switch with the app as an option and companion app. I know this won’t happen, but it would be awesome if you could play the nes games on this app. There is no reason why it would be impossible. Do it Nintendo. Also people say it crashes and that they can’t sign in but I haven’t had either of those problems. The crashes might happen with voice chat on but otherwise fine. It IS NOT because I have a good phone either. I have an iPhone 5s.
Wouldn’t work with my account 3/5
By Thank u, Ness
I’m under 13 and I thought I could download this so I could use it with Splatoon 2. But, when I logged in it said I had to be 13 to use it. Whaaa???
Dont see the whole use of this app 2/5
As of now useless.
Not even close to Xbox or Ps4 app.
App doesn’t work with my account. 1/5

I got the app and logged in and it automatically said that the service does not work with me account.
