Last night, a new system update became available for the Nintendo Switch. While some people didn't notice anything wrong with their Switch, it was necessary according to Nintendo and a few users who felt like something was "off" about the gaming console.

The new update 2.2.0 includes "general system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience," according to the patch notes that were posted on Nintendo's website.

Users don't have to do anything special to get the update. If your Switch is connected to the internet, you should see a notification of the upgrade quickly. If you don't, you can also manually start the update.

To check if you have an update, check to see if your current version says 2.2.0.

Some fans say that they have experienced a better connection because of the update, though that isn't obviously apparent that the update would fix this at all. If you noticed anything, let us know on Twitter or below and we'll check it out on our devices.

The Switch has been a bigger success story than most people expected it to be, selling over 900,000 units within the first month and moving 1.3 million units for its biggest game, Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Switch is the fastest-selling Nintendo system ever.
