Nintendo Switch Firmware Update 11.0.0 is here

Switch_Firm.jpg


Yesterday, Nintendo dropped a new Nintendo Switch Firmware Update. This update includes several new additions and changes. One of the most notable is sharing Nintendo Switch Screenshots to a PC or Phone; users no longer have to remove their microSD card or use social media. This includes a QR code for Phone transfer, and being able to connect the Switch through a USB cable directly to the computer.

Most of the other updates are quality of life features, such-as 12 new Super Mario Bros 35th anniversary icons, automatically downloading backed up save data, and accessing all Nintendo Switch online services just from one menu. The full list of patch notes on Firmware 11.0.0 can be seen on their support site. We've also listed them below,
  • Nintendo Switch Online was added to the HOME Menu.
  • A new feature that automatically downloads backed up save data was added to the Save Data Cloud.
    • When using software with the same Nintendo Account linked to multiple systems, save data backed up from one console will automatically be downloaded to your other system(s).
      • *To use this feature, it must be enabled under System Settings > Data Management > Save Data Cloud.
      • *Save data will not be downloaded automatically unless save data for that software exists on the console. The first time only, users must download the save data manually.
      • *A Nintendo Switch Online membership is required to use the Save Data Cloud service.
  • A new Trending feature was added to the User Page.
    • Users can check what software their friends are playing or have started playing recently.
    • Information will not be displayed for friends who have their online status set to display to no one.
  • Users can now transfer screenshots and videos from Album to their smart devices.
    • Users can wirelessly connect their smart devices to Nintendo Switch to transfer the screenshots and videos saved within their Album.
    • For screenshots, users can transfer a maximum of 10 screenshots and 1 video capture at once.
      • *To connect, users must use their smart device to scan the QR Code displayed on the Nintendo Switch screen.
      • For more information, please refer to the Nintendo Support website.
      • *“QR Code” is a registered trademark of DENSO WAVE INCORPORATED.
  • A new Copy to a Computer via USB Connection feature was added under System Settings > Data Management > Manage Screenshots and Videos.
    • Users can use a USB cable to connect Nintendo Switch to their computers to copy the screenshots and videos saved under Album.
      • * A USB charging cable [model HAC-010] or a USB-IF certified USB cable that supports data transfer is required to connect to a computer.
      • For more information, please refer to the Nintendo Support website.
      • * Connection via the Nintendo Switch dock is not supported. Please connect the Nintendo Switch system directly to the computer.
  • Users can now select what download to prioritize when there are multiple downloads in progress.
    • When there are multiple software, update data, or downloadable content downloads in progress, users can now select which they want to download first.
    • You can set this under Download Options by selecting the icon for the software you want to download first on the HOME Menu.
  • User icons were added.
    • 12 user icons that commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros. series were added.
  • Users can now name preset button mappings with the Change Button Mapping feature.
  • Brazilian Portuguese was added as a supported language.
    • When users set their region to the Americas and their language to Português, the language used on the HOME Menu and in certain software will be displayed in Brazilian Portuguese.
  • Several issues were fixed, and usability and stability were improved.
Author's Note: What do you think of the update? I'm excited to save and share more Switch screenshots. Let us know in the comments below!

Finally more icons! Hope they do the same with Zelda 35°
 
While I do like all the other updates...
The NSO button on the home menu is annoying and ugly as hell.
