In its most recent 4.0 software update for the Switch, Nintendo has made it possible to transfer user and save data from one Switch console to another. It's the biggest update for the system since it was released back in March. Titled as update 4.0.0, the newest update now allows player to capture game play and share it. First, it can only record a maximum of the previous 30 seconds of gameplay. Instead, the gaming firm only officially announced the new video capture and data transfer features in the update.
