      Can confirm the switch lite also supports Bluetooth headphones. I’ve got my buds pro hooked up to it.

    I love Nintendo, but they make so odd choices sometimes… Not having this out of the box is definitely on the list.

    But you can’t use BT headphones with PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X (or whatever that newest MS console was). That sucks.

      If it’s like the bluetooth usb adapter I bought you will still be able to use it on PS4/PS5 and most likely Xbox Consoles as well.
