To sync a Nintendo Switch controller, you’ll need to go into the “Change Grip/Order” menu.

You can sync up to eight Nintendo Switch controllers to a single Nintendo Switch.
You can play using the Joy-Con controllers as one unit, as two separate controllers, or you can use the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.
There are also special controller hubs, which often require their own separate accessories to sync with your Switch.

When it comes to Nintendo Switch games, the more the merrier. Multiplayer gaming only enhances the fun, especially when you and your friends or family are playing together in the same room.

A Switch console can support eight controllers connected at the same time. This means four pairs of Joy-Cons (or eight if you’re playing them individually), eight Pro Controllers, and up to two controller hubs (each of which supports four controllers, again adding up to eight).

Note: The only exception here is if you’ve connected Bluetooth headphones to your Switch. While Bluetooth headphones are connected, you can only use two wireless controllers (or one pair of Joy-Cons).

Once you’ve got your controllers, here’s how to sync them.

How to sync a Nintendo Switch controller with your console

The best way to sync a Nintendo Switch controller will depend on what sort of controller you have.

The easiest way to sync a pair of Joy-Con controllers to a Nintendo Switch is simply to slide them onto the physical console. The right- and left-hand Joy-Con controller will then be linked to that Nintendo Switch until affixed to a different console, or until the remote pairing steps below are followed.

You can also sync a Pro Controller by connecting it to your Switch’s dock with a USB-C cable.

You can pair and re-order Nintendo Switch controllers from the “Controllers” icon link at the bottom of the home screen.

This is where you’ll go to add new controllers or change their configuration.

3. If you’re trying to pair a new controller or Joy-Con, you’ll want to press and hold its SYNC button (a small circular button, usually on the top) for about five seconds before moving on to the next steps.

Every Switch controller has a SYNC button, which you’ll press when you’re first syncing it.

4. If you want to use a Joy-Con (or multiple Joy-Cons) as an individual controller, take it out of the Switch and press both its shoulder buttons at the same time – they’re labeled “SL” and “SR.” It may take a few presses for the Switch to recognize them.

5. If you want to use two Joy-Cons as a single controller, press the shoulder buttons on each Joy-Con at the same time. They’re labeled “ZL” and “ZR.” You can add up to four …read more
