If you love being able to sync your Nintendo controllers with new devices and apps, you might be a fan of Valve’s latest Steam update. The company responsible for successes like Half life, Left 4 Dead and the Portal series has revealed its additional support for Nintendo’s Joy-Con controllers in its latest Steam Client beta.

If you have access to Steam and this particular client, it means you can now sync up your Joy-Con and use it as a controller. The patch notes mention how they are supported individually and can also be used in a pair.

“Added support for Nintendo Joy-Con controllers, both individually as a mini-gamepad and combined in pairs”

This latest update follows Valve adding support for Nintendo’s classic Switch Online controllers in late July. This includes NES, SNES, N64, and Mega Drive/Genesis wireless controllers. In this latest Steam Client Beta update, Valve has apparently also “improved support for classic Nintendo Online controllers.”

Valve previously added support for Nintendo’s Switch Pro Controller in 2018, and has even made pads like Hori’s. Pokken DX Tournament Pro driver compatible with your client. Interested in using your Joy-Con with Steam games? Tell us below in the comments.
