Disclaimer: I do not own a Switch.

So... I am wondering, is each game specific service downloaded locally to your phone or is it more like a webapp/webportal. If its the former, and they have services for most all multiplayer games and it has the data/icons/sounds on your phone wouldnt that take up a lot of storage, since you have to have different assets for each game?

You can, voice chat just gets temp disabled. Just like how any other app works. It gets suspended then loads the other app. When you're done with the app, it wakes the app back up.
I think you should read that again.

Unless there is another part in that picture.

The thing work like Twitch app. It turn itself down when you exit it, and restart when you open it again.
Doesn't that mean the same thing though? You can't use it while other phone apps. It just goes to sleep. Then starts again after you go back to the app.
