Nintendo Switch Firmware Update 14.0.0 Finally Adds Groups Folders

The most awaited feature is here!

Nintendo has recently released Nintendo Switch firmware update 14.0.0 and it finally adds a new feature that many fans have been waiting for so long: group folders.

The latest firmware update is finally here for Nintendo Switch owners and it adds a very helpful feature for players who want to get organized. A new feature called Groups adds folders that will allow them to sort their many apps and games into custom folders in the console.

There is a limit of groups that can be created, which is up to 100 only with a maximum of 200 titles per group. That is a lot already, but it is good to know the limits.

The Bluetooth Audio volume behavior was also changed. Players can now adjust the volume of Bluetooth audio devices using either the console or via the volume control buttons on the audio device with Bluetooth technology.

Here is the full 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.

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.
