Steam Beta adds full support for Switch Joy-Con

Valve is continually making improvements and expanding the ways players can play games on Steam, and with the latest update, it’s now possible to use Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers in the beta client.

Sharing the news on August 4 in a new community post, Valve announced that the Steam beta client will now allow players to input Nintendo Joy-Con controllers, both individually as a mini gamepad, as well as combined in pairs. This means that players who are currently enabled on the Steam beta client can use the latest features before they are released on the main Steam client.

Playing now: Steam Deck: everything you need to know

Following the addition of classic Nintendo Online controllers on June 17, including Nintendo 64, NES, SNES, Sega Mega Drive, and Genesis controllers, Valve has also added enhanced support for them. Although the update is small, it’s great that Steam is expanding its controller support and introducing new ways to play.

In other news, Valve recently announced that everyone who currently has a pre-order is now guaranteed to get their hands on a Steam Deck by the end of the year. The company confirmed that it had ironed out supply chain issues and that some of those waiting for their wearable have been moved to the third quarter, while all other reservations are now in the fourth quarter.

The Steam Deck launched on February 25, but only those who were able to pre-order quickly were able to receive one at launch. The console has three price points: 64GB for $400, 256GB for $529, and 512GB (which includes other upgraded features) for $649.
