Online Lounge

Using the app's Online Lounge, you can send online play invitations to players on your Nintendo Switch system's friend list. The app also lets you quickly send invites via social networks and messaging services. When you're invited to a game, you'll get notified right away via a push notification on your smartphone.

Once players are connected, you can use voice chat openly with friends while in the online lobby and during online play (depending on the game).
