Nintendo has just released a new firmware update for the Switch. It brings the system up to version 14.0.0, and while it’s not a huge update, it adds one important and long-requested feature.
Five years later, users can now create software groups. It’s essentially a folder update, which means you can organize your library of games into a wide variety of categories. There is a limit of 100 groups, with a maximum of 200 items per group.
So there you have it, you can finally clean up your Switch main menu. In addition to this, Nintendo has changed the volume behavior of Bluetooth Audio, further improving the user experience.
