Note: A Nintendo Switch Online membership (sold separately) is required to use certain features of this app.

Needs some work...

So, as we all know, Nintendo has had some questionable game experiences as with their past online gaming qualities. But, there’s a lot of things that should be fixed about this app and just the service. But, I am talking about the app, not the service. Anyway, voice chat. There is a possible way to make this better: Allow us to use a headset via the headphone jack, implement a audio jack in the Switch Pro Controller. You get the idea. Also, if you have the app and you enter a game that is supported, you can replace voice chat with an actual chat; and other people can chat with a headset. Here’s another idea...another chat function. It would be nice if through this app you could chat to your friends...especially for Animal Crossing, as you have codes. It would also be just convenient. Most of the previous features are only here for convenience. “Everybody relies on and uses their phone, so why not implement a voice chat system in the app?” Other things I think are useful, but my list of possible things they could change could work if applied.

More use for games it’s designed for

I really do like the spirit team creation features for ultimate and the recording side for splatoon but if this review get in the app developers hands I would recommend having more immersive features added for support for the games like guides or character stats or how in game tip are read through loading screen as well as update history so it’s one place they can quickly access instead of going to a website and waiting for people to sift through it and for spirit team building it would be helpful for it to display descriptions on what the effects do and if they stack or not and I would suggest that for any games that are supported by this app if DLC is made available details can be seen through the app as well as game purchase like how on the console you a wishlist or prepurchase option it’d be convenient if the eshop and its contents are visible through the app just like how Sony and Microsoft do with their apps in relation to their platforms you can buy the games and dlc using a mobile cellular device without being restricted of not have WiFi connections to make purchases for the console whether you have it in your hand or not

It isn’t perfect but...

The Nintendo Switch Online app is honestly something that should be praised in its efforts instead of shamed for the final production. The app was made to give another point of view on nintendo switch games and make it easier to connect to your Nintendo Switch friends.
The app has additional functionality for Splatoon 2, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and Online Voice Chat. The Splatoon 2 and SSBU portions are very well put together and makes things for the user very beneficial in terms of finding what they need quickly, and providing good additional content for your Switch games.
The Online Voice Chat is not the best, but it definitely isn’t the worst. The purpose of the chat system is to talk to friends, teammates, and other in-game allies in NSO supported games. Sure it may be a bit buggy or laggy, but it could be WAY worse. A lot of people will state “we can just use X app instead of this for voice chat” and will poorly rate this app for that exact reason. I say for what they were trying to do for the users of the app, they succeeded.
