A new system update is available for the Nintendo Switch and it brings a litany of quality of features and improvements. Software update 9.0.0 adds a search function to the News Channel and allows for using filters or text to search. You can also choose to check in to your Nintendo Account via a QR Code.

The Notifications tab in System Settings also allows for alarms, though they’re only for supported software (which will be added later). One interesting new feature exclusive to the Nintendo Switch Lite is the option to turn system button input on or off. That means aside from the Capture and HOME buttons, the Switch Lite will only accept input from a wirelessly paired controller.

Check out the system update notes below. Nintendo has quite a bit in store for the next several weeks – it will showcase a new Switch “experience” on September 12th. Not only that but a number of major releases like Marvelous’s Daemon X Machina, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and Luigi’s Mansion 3 are on the way.

Ver. 9.0.0 (Released September 9, 2019)

Added the following system functionality:

  • Added a search feature for the News Channel. Channels can be searched using filters or free text.
  • Added “Display QR Code to Check In” to User Settings. You can display a QR Code on-screen to check in using your Nintendo Account.
  • Alarm Notifications have been added to System Settings > Notifications. You can check or delete pre-set alarms. Alarms can be set up only within supported software (to be added at a later time). A controller firmware update may be required to use this feature.
  • You can now configure touch screen sensitivity settings. Select between Standard and Stylus sensitivity (optimized for stylus input).
  • Added the option to turn on/off the system button input (Nintendo Switch Lite only). When this setting is turned off the system no longer receives input from the console buttons, with the exception of the Capture and HOME Buttons, and can only be operated from a wirelessly paired controller (sold separately). This setting is on by default and can only be turned off if a compatible controller (sold separately) is wirelessly paired to the console. The setting will automatically turn back on when the console is restarted or after returning from sleep mode.
  • Added “Online Play Invites” section to the User’s page. Invites from friends to join online play in supported software will be displayed in this section.
  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.
