The Nintendo Switch's recent 12.0.0 firmware update might not seem like much based on the official patch notes, but according to dataminers there's much more exciting information on the backend of it.

Following on from yesterday's finding - suggesting a "new" Switch dock could be on the way, it's now supposedly been discovered that this latest update has added audio support to the system's Bluetooth driver.

This information has once again been shared by well-known Nintendo dataminer OatmealDome:

As further noted by OatmealDome, Bluetooth audio has been a "highly requested feature" on the Nintendo Switch and with Bluetooth headphones becoming increasingly common, we're sure many players would appreciate being able to connect certain wireless headsets to their system.

To combat the lack of support for wireless headsets, over the years we've seen a bunch of third-party companies releasing dongles, which attach directly to the Switch.

So, what do you think? Does this sound too good to be true, or do you think Nintendo might finally make Bluetooth audio devices compatible with the Switch? Share your thoughts down below.
