July saw the launch of Splatoon 2, and also the Nintendo Switch Online application. This allowed chatting with your friends online and inviting them for matches on Splatoon 2. But it had a huge flaw which was corrected in the last update: the phone and application had to remain open for it to work.
Version 1.1.0 of the application now allows you to open other applications and put the phone into standby during its operation, as specified in the patch notes :
• Voice chat will now continue when other apps are opened. (*1)
• Voice chat will now continue during sleep mode. (*2)
• Improved support for Bluetooth devices. (For Android devices only.)
(*1) This excludes apps with audio output or apps that use the microphone.
(*2) If the power-saving feature is activated on devices using Android 6.0 or later, voice chat may be interrupted after the device has entered sleep mode. To use voice chat during sleep mode, go to Other Settings>Power Saving Settings in the app and deactivate battery optimization on the Android device.
Do you find this application useful and will you continue to use it when you'll have to pay for it in 2018?
