Switch System Update 14.0.0 Adds Groups & More

The first significant Switch system update since September adds a highly requested feature.

Since we began the sixth year of Nintendo’s ever-popular hyrbid console, a major update was bound to happen. That update brings “Groups”, a folder-like system that many have been asking for since 2017. Folders were a feature of the 3DS and Wii U system software.

Here are the full patch notes (via Nintendo’s support page):

“Groups” feature was added to the All Software menu.

  • You can now create groups of software to help organize your software titles.
  • Making groups for different game genres, developers, or whatever you’d like to organize by may make it easier to find the application you want.
    • Up to 100 groups can be created with a max of 200 titles per group.
  • The button to proceed to the “All Software” screen is displayed only when there are 13 or more software title icons on the system.
  • For more information, see How to Create Groups of Software.

Bluetooth® Audio volume behavior was changed.

  • You can now adjust the volume of Bluetooth audio devices using either the Nintendo Switch™ console or through volume control buttons on the Bluetooth audio device.
    • The Bluetooth audio device must support AVRCP profiles for these changes to work.
  • The volume displayed on the console will reflect the Bluetooth audio volume when using the device’s control buttons.
  • The maximum volume output for some Bluetooth audio devices has been increased.
