What is Nintendo Switch?
Nintendo Switch is a gaming console that can be used in three modes — tv, tabletop and handheld, allowing single player, multiplayer and online play. Gamers can send friend requests and online messages. Games may be purchased outright or accessed through a paid membership subscription. The Nintendo Switch Online app allows in-game voice chat, data storage and game statistics as well as in-app purchases and advertising. Parental controls allow parents to manage features and select which games can be played. More extensive control can be accessed through the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app.
