ICYDK: The Switch Doesn't Have Bluetooth Audio, But This Dongle Fixes That

A photo of the Nintendo Switch Lite HomeSpot Bluetooth adapter.

As we all know, the music of Animal Crossing absolutely slaps. But the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite do not work with Bluetooth headphones. If you want to blow up the funky Theme 10 a.m. Without disturbing the people around you (or getting tangled with wired headphones), you must first purchase a Nintendo Switch Bluetooth audio adapter.

Welcome to ICYDK (In case you didn’t know), a series where we offer tips and tricks which are not necessarily new but which may have been ignored or otherwise not well known.

There are a ton of discreet Bluetooth audio adapters specially designed for the Nintendo Switch USB-C port. But we suggest using the low profile HomeSpot Bluetooth 5.0 Adapter, which is available in different colors and is suitable for both Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite. It is easy to use and works with aptX codecs for high fidelity, low latency audio transmission. It can also stream on two headphones if you’re in the know.

The only thing missing from the HomeSpot dongle is direct charging, a feature that allows you to charge your Switch without removing the Bluetooth adapter. If you can’t live without direct billing, then Bionik BT electronic key is a fantastic alternative to HomeSpot. Just know that this only works with the full size Nintendo Switch, it’s only available in one color, and it’s a little thicker than the HomeSpot dongle.
