You have to go into settings then controllers and update them that way.

Still looking for specific joycon patch notes

Maybe it activates that rumoured blue notification light built into the hardware?

The right one is taking a lot longer than the left one.

Reminder that the right one has the IR camera.

Not really rumored, changed the color of how mine shows up on the system and the blue line was going off on the right one

Nothing for the pro controller for me.

Updated the joycons and then I connected the Pro with a cable and ran it again. "All connected controllers are up to date".

you can connect the controller to your pc via bluetooth and mod it so the console thinks that your joycon is a different color. when doing this the light goes off

Yup, modded mine to atomic purple (have to replace the left one because I messed something up....) but I was very happy to find out this is possible....hopefully this update doesn't mess with it.

Large stealth firmware updates are cool :). I've never had any real problems with my Joy Cons, but hopefully this fixes some stuff for people who were still having issues.

Yeah.

I think this is tied to the "Find your controller" function they added in 3.x and some people just hadnt updated their controllers somehow.

I only picked up my Switch last week, and I have trouble with my left joycon desyncing.
It's very easy to replicate, so if this update fixes it, it will be really obvious to me.

Fingers crossed

I changed the colors on the Switch for a pair of Joy-Cons I have. I updated the Joy-Cons from the Switch settings just now and the system still recognizes them just fine and it kept my custom color. So seems safe to me.

I live in Japan, so it may be different for you, but they told me to send in the whole system.

Just the joycon. I had to send in one of mine because the A buton barely worked.

Desync issues?

I had to send in the left joycon only (Canada)

I had an issue with my left joycon where the joystick made a clicking sound. I only had to send in the joycon by itself, and they overnighted my replacement.

I was on the phone for maybe 8 minutes, got a free shipping label, and had my joycon back in 3 business days after I sent it out.

If I had to guess, if you're having connection issues, they may need the system so they can test the connectivity, but idk.

Ooo I see. Thats cool if you got lots of joycons or to avoid mixing up with friends I guess.

In case it's not clear, the system shows a colored strip on the sides of the screen when sliding a joycon into the system. The strip usually reflects the real color of the joycon being used, and this mod changes it to whatever color you want.

I doubt you'll get any patch notes - Microsoft updates their controllers and rarely says why.
