Bluetooth audio support is coming to Switch via new transmitter from Cyber Gadget

One feature that many Switch owners have been hoping would be added to the system is support for Bluetooth audio. After all, the console does already use Bluetooth for wireless controller connectivity, but Nintendo has yet to expand that to include audio devices (though to be fair, the PS4 and Xbox One don’t support them either). Well, those woes will soon be quelled, albeit from a third-party company.

Cyber Gadget has recently unveiled its Bluetooth Audio Transmitter for the Switch. This accessory connects to the Switch via the USB-C port. Thankfully, it doesn’t get in the way of using the console in TV mode. On top of that, this transmitter can also handle two audio devices at once.

The Bluetooth Audio Transmitter is set to hit stores in Japan on April 30. It’s unclear if it will officially make its way to the West, though you should be able to import it. Pricing info is also unavailable, though hopefully, it won’t cost too much.
