Switch Update Adds Facebook, Twitter Friend Finding

Finding people to play with on Nintendo Switch is about to get a lot easier. Nintendo on Monday rolled out Switch firmware version 5.0, which adds friend suggestions from your Facebook and Twitter accounts, parental control changes, and more. To find your Facebook and Twitter friends that use Nintendo Switch, just head to your User Page (from the top left of the Home Menu), and select Friend Suggestions.

You’ll need to be at least 13 years old to use this feature and have your Facebook and Twitter accounts linked to your Nintendo Account for it to work. Meanwhile, parents can now use the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app to add specific titles to a whitelist, which will exclude them from the console’s restricted software setting. Nintendo also changed the default method for entering your parental control PIN to help you keep that number private – you’ll now use the Control Stick and buttons instead of the on-screen number pad.

Note: you can change input methods by pressing and holding the + button when prompted to enter your PIN. Besides that, the update delivers 24 new ARMS and Kirby-series icons you can set as your user icon, and the ability to filter news to view only unread stories or content from specific channels. Plus, Nintendo said that “digital software purchases made from a PC or smart device will start downloading sooner, even if the Switch console is in Sleep Mode.”

In most cases, you don’t have to do anything to get this system update as your Switch will automatically download it when connected online.

If necessary, you can verify your current version and manually start the update from the System Settings menu.

If, for some reason, the update isn’t downloading, Nintendo recommends you restart your console and try again.
