We think the Switch controllers are so great, every one should be using them as their controller of choice.
As an added bonus owners of the Nintendo Switch can potentially use their Joy-con controllers on any Bluetooth enabled device.
Last night, after some testing, we found out you can actually use the Nintendo Switch's joy-con controllers on our tablets and laptop devices. While the tablet had an issue originally connecting, troubleshooting was simple.
All you have to do is hold the small button located on the top and in the middle of the Joy-con, as this will put the Joy-con in pairing mode.
Next, simply go over to Bluetooth on your device of choice and enable them respectfully. Please note each Joy-con must be enabled separately.
After they were enabled, our device did all the work, allowing us to map the controller to the control scheme of many games we tested.
We must say, we heavily enjoyed using our Nintendo Switch Joy-cons as our new controller of choice. In the future, we sincerely hope Nintendo will reveal a great line-up of virtual console titles only enjoyed on the Nintendo Switch.
