Nintendo Makes a Much-Needed Change to Online Voice Chat

Nintendo makes voice chat less of a disaster on Switch

It's a mobile app that has made online functionality far better than it would have been without it, but it had some glaring issues.

Voice chat will now continue when other apps are opened. Nintendo Switch Online finally brought voice chat to Splatoon 2 players everywhere, but there was one small problem: You had to keep your phone awake and on the app for voice chat to stay live. However, Nintendo notes that devices running Android 6.0 or later will not allow you to continue chatting while not in the app if power-saving mode is on, which is easily rectified.

Real Madrid extends Marcelo's contract until 2022
Real will first begin their bid for a third straight Champions League triumph tonight against Cypriot side APOEL in Group H. The left-back will be absent for Sunday's trip to Real Sociedad and the visit of Real Betis on September 20.

The paid service will encompass online play, the voice chat app, eShop deals, and a Virtual Console library of retro games with added online multiplayer. 3, Dr. Mario, and more. Surely all that tapping and checking was making it insane hard for players to focus on the game, rendering the app mostly useless.

There's still a lot that could be improved with the Nintendo Switch Online, both the service and the app, but it's good to know that Nintendo are listening at least. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime has said that using your existing smartphone and earbuds is preferable to "having some sort of bulky gamer headset", but we're still not 100 percent convinced on that score.
