Update 11.0.0 for the Nintendo Switch is here, and with it come a great many notable additions that change some of the ways the Switch is used, or at least what it can offer as far as user comfort and convenience is concerned. The most notable of these changes is the addition of a Nintendo Switch Online hub on the main page of home, but that’s far from the only thing worth mentioning. Don’t worry, we’ll cover all of it here.
Switch Online Hub Button
The new “Nintendo Switch Online” hub button appears on the home screen right next to the News tab. Its purpose is to essentially put all of the services offered by Nintendo Switch Online into one place for easy access. This includes a pretty big list of things, including smartphone apps, online games, current tournaments, an archive of NES and SNES titles arranged by year, your save data in the cloud, and member offers. Needless to say, it’s mostly there to improve convenience for all players.
Furthermore, Cloud data will now be automatically downloaded on multiple systems if they are all attached to the same account. While this isn’t a huge deal for anyone that is only playing with one Switch, for those who are perhaps using a Switch and a Switch Lite together, the ability to have their saves immediately shared between both devices will probably be a huge boon for them.
