If there are still people you want to connect with that you haven’t found yet, remember that Nintendo offers a bunch of other ways to add friends on Switch. Firstly, you can search for local users that are geographically close to you. This can be a good way to find out if neighbors and other people in your building are playing Switch games, which could lead to some wholesome community bonding! You can search for local users at any time, and if you’re not connected to the internet then your Switch will simply save the invite and send it the next time you’re connected.
Another great feature is searching for users you’ve played with. This can let you reconnect with the rival you were grouped with in “Mario Kart” so you can challenge them to an epic rematch. On the other hand, if you have an unfortunate experience online, you can also use this feature to block the user.
Lastly, there’s the good old-fashioned Friend Code. This is for adding people you know outside of games that you can directly communicate with. Just ask for their Friend Code and type it into your Switch, nice and simple.
With all of these different features at your disposal, you should be able to add just about anyone you have in mind. Once your invites are accepted, you’ll be able to send invites for online play and view the games everyone has been playing.
