Workaround Allows You To Use Facebook And Twitter On Your Nintendo Switch

Although the newly released Nintendo Switch doesn’t have a browser option yet, the team at Polygon have found a workaround to allow you to browse Facebook and Twitter.

They have advised that the workaround isn’t perfect, but it does work. It works by going into the User Settings and selecting the option that allows you to post to social media, then linking your Facebook or Twitter account. After this, you’ll need to click the link on the Facebook/Twitter option, and then you’ll be presented with an additional two options. If you’re looking to browse pages, you can click on the links at the bottom of the screen. However, it’s worth noting that without a cursor it will be difficult to navigate.

Polygon has also uploaded screenshots to help out, as the explanation in writing might not appear straight forward without seeing how it works, you can check them out here.

It’s unknown yet whether an internet browser will be added to the Switch at some stage. Nintendo’s president Tatsumi Kimishima advised previously, “In terms of the Internet browser, since all of our efforts have gone toward making Switch an amazing dedicated video game platform, it will not support it, at least at launch.”
