Or as Nintendo calls them, Groups.

It only took five years, but Nintendo has finally granted its fans a longstanding wish that many have had—the ability to organize their software into folders. Nintendo being Nintendo, folders in this case aren’t called so. Instead, the word is Groups. Whatever. A folder by any other name is still a handy way of being able to bring some sense and order to Switch’s less than optimal way of arranging software. If you’d like a step-by-step on how to create your own Groups, check out Nintendo’s tutorial right here.

In order to access this new feature, update your Switch to the latest firmware, version 14.0.0. Here are the patch notes:

Ver. 14.0.0 (Released March 21, 2022)

“Groups” feature was added to the All Software menu.

  • You can now create groups of software to help organize your software titles.
  • Making groups for different game genres, developers, or whatever you’d like to organize by may make it easier to find the application you want.
    • Up to 100 groups can be created with a max of 200 titles per group.
  • The button to proceed to the “All Software” screen is displayed only when there are 13 or more software title icons on the system.
  • For more information, see How to Create Groups of Software.

Bluetooth Audio volume behavior was changed.

  • You can now adjust the volume of Bluetooth audio devices using either the Nintendo Switch console or through volume control buttons on the Bluetooth audio device.
    • The Bluetooth audio device must support AVRCP profiles for these changes to work.
  • The volume displayed on the console will reflect the Bluetooth audio volume when using the device’s control buttons.
  • The maximum volume output for some Bluetooth audio devices has been increased.

You might have noticed that there has also been a change to Bluetooth Audio, with users now able to have greater control over output levels (and increased output for some devices). Overall, a solid update that addresses a couple of irks that many fans have likely had. Are you happy to see the changes Nintendo made? Tell us in the comments!
