    1. Check that your Switch is running the latest software version

    You must validate that your device is updated to the latest software version in order to match your audio device with Bluetooth. Below are the procedures to check your console's version of the software:

    1. Go to your Nintendo Switch console for System Settings. Select the Gear icon below the screen to do this.
    2. Scroll to System and view the current console version on the right side of the screen.

    Your console has to run version 13.0.0 and higher to connect a Bluetooth audio device. So you have to upgrade your device if your gadget runs a lesser version. You can move to step 3 if your device is running version 13.0.0 and later.

    Follow the below procedures to connect your Bluetooth audio device when you run the required version to support the Bluetooth audio device.

    1. Go to System Settings in step 1.
    2. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen on the left pane. You should notice a new Bluetooth Audio menu.
    3. On the right pane, select Pair Device. If AirPlane Mode is activated, you will be asked to switch it off.
    4. Put your audio device on Bluetooth and make sure it is paired.
      Your Nintendo Switch will look for Bluetooth devices that are available.
    5. Select your Bluetooth device and the console will be associated with it once you see the device.

    Note: You can have Bluetooth enabled, but the Airplane mode can be activated by heading to System Settings in Airplane mode. Turn on and turn Bluetooth to Airplane Mode.
