Nintendo Removes X Integration from Switch With Nintendo Switch Update 18.1.0

Nintendo just recently announced the removal of  X integration from the Switch on June 10, 2024. And now the company has pulled the X with the update 18.1.0 that’s out now. Nintendo has become the third company to do this after Sony and Microsoft with the PlayStation and Xbox.

This means now the gamers won’t be able to post the screenshots and videos on X from the Album in the Nintendo Switch HOME Menu. Nintendo did not justify the step by giving any explanation though it is believed that this step has been taken because X began charging more for business use of its API, the interface used by third-party developers to access X data.

X did not let go of the announcement by Nintendo unaddressed and wrote  “As part of Nintendo’s planned discontinuation of sharing content to X from the Nintendo Switch, from June 11th, users will need to download Switch gameplay media directly to their smartphones and share it natively on our platform. Our partnership with Nintendo remains strong, and we are working together to ensure a smooth transition for all users. We will continue collaborating with partners to bring new and exciting experiences to our global gaming community”.
