Google Chrome Adding Support For Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons And Pro Controller

It was discovered late yesterday that Google will soon be adding support for both the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and Joy-Cons in the Google Chrome web browser. The reason for this is most likely related to Google’s upcoming video game streaming service which uses the Chrome browser. The company is trying to support as many official controllers as possible so that gamers can use their current controller, rather than purchase a special one to play the upcoming games.

Thanks to Nintendo First Order Reaver for the news tip!

  1. Does Nintendo have to give permission for this or no? I’m just curious; I’m not saying they should have to, or that there’s any good reason why they would oppose it.

    1. That’s what I tried to write and it has been blocked by WordPress: “No. Absolutely not. Even if Google Chrome will brick your Joy Cons Nintendo couldn’t do anything about it except warning you.”

  2. I don’t think so. Support for controllers is one thing, integration with the switch is another. AFAIK this could just mean that Chrome will be availabe to the Switch, or that people that use joycons/pro controller on the PC could play with that.
