Today, the Nintendo Switch got a new software upgrade. It lets players move their snapshots to their smartphones wirelessly. To demonstrate how the feature functions on an upgraded portable console, the official Nintendo of America Twitter page posted a picture.
Players have two choices when uploading screenshots – to share the snapshot directly on social media or to send it to their smartphone. It seems, though, that on their Nintendo Switch console, players need to check the QR code. Before they can move the images, the mobile camera has to search the code.
Players can transfer 10 images from the console to their smartphones at a time. We definitely enjoy sharing our gaming moments on social media with our families. Before uploading to a certain social media site, we had to pass screenshots from Nintendo Switch a device or smartphone via SD card. For players, the direct transition of photographs to the smartphone can come as a treat. Those who actively post their gaming moments online are welcome to do this.
Switch’s other updates
The Nintendo Switch also received a significant eShop function in September. This allowed players directly from the console to cancel pre-orders and digital transactions. Before that to put a cancel order, players will have to call Nintendo customer service. So the eShop feature was well received by users, and with the latest update, the same has been the case.
The upgrade also brings extras, in addition to screenshot transfers. The automated cloud saves downloads of data and a new “Trending” segment is now included. Plus, a workaround to leap straight into the prioritization of Nintendo Switch Web Utilities and app updates.
Of course, gaming isn’t all about showing off and the Switch firmware update 11.0 certainly brings a lot more than that. If you have ever had a download backlog but want a single game to be prioritized, you can now pick which one you want to download first. If you still find yourself managing several Switch systems under one Nintendo username, you can customize each to import save data automatically.
In related news, on December 8, the Nintendo Switch will receive Doom Eternal from Id Tech. Earlier today, Bethesda Softworks dropped an ad teaser emphasizing how Doom Everlasting looks and performs on Switch.
Firmware Version 11.0.0 for the Nintendo Switch is now available.
