However, Nintendo notes that devices running Android 6.0 or later will not allow you to continue chatting while not in the app if power-saving mode is on, which is easily rectified. Admittedly, this is a difference of degrees which is still tethered to a choke-chain of cords, but we're making progress.

Players will now be able to continue use voice chat when their phones enter sleep mode, as well as while they use other apps.

The full Nintendo Switch Online App version 1.1.0 updates are as follows. Before, you had to keep your phone awake and on the voice chat screen at all times so you wouldn't drop the chat, unlike literally every other voice chat app out there. To use voice chat during sleep mode, go to Other Settings Power Saving Settings in the app and deactivate battery optimization on the Android device.
