Chrome adds support for Switch controllers

With the eyes of the gaming world pointed at Google, this raises questions ahead of their GDC appearance next week to show off their gaming plans.

Google is a company that's in all the headlines right now, especially in the gaming space. We know they'll be showing off their gaming plans at the Game Devloper Conference (GDC) on March 19, and now something else has been discovered by 9to5Google and Owen Williams to get us talking.

Both have discovered that Google Chrome has added native support for Nintendo Switch controllers, including the Pro Controller, Joy-Cons, and even the Joy-Con charging grip, as shown off in Williams' tweet.

What this means exactly remains unclear, but with the anticipation building around Google at GDC, it's adding fuel to the fire at this point. Speaking of controllers, a mock-up image of an allegedly leaked Google controller made the rounds in the last week, but Kotaku's Jason Schreier claimed this is "not real".

What does this mean for Google?
