Steam now officially supports Switch's Joy-Con controllers

Valve continues to tinker behind the scenes with Steam and its latest client beta has officially introduced support for Nintendos Switch Joy-Con controllers.

As such, those with a preference for Nintendos dual-handed clutch capsules will now be able to use them across their PC games in a number of different configurations.

Theres support for individual Joy-Cons, which can be used as mini gamepad, and two controllers can also be combined into pairs – as is the case on Switch – for a more traditional controller configuration.

Todays update means Steam now fully supports the bulk of Switchs official controller options, with Pro Controller compatibility having been introduced all the way back in 2018.

Additionally, support for Nintendos increasingly expansive range of Switch Online classic controllers – covering NES, SNES, N64, and Mega Drive – was introduced to Steam last month, and todays beta release brings improved compatibility for these.
