The Animal Crossing: New Horizons in-game chat function is lovely, but painful to use when typing on the switch keyboard. Nintendo Online is the solution.

It’s pretty easy to set up too. Here’s how.

How to type quickly and use voice chat with Nintendo Online on Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Follow these steps to type faster and use voice chat on your phone:

Step 1: Go to the Google Play store or Apple App store and download the Nintendo Switch Online app.

Step 2: Open the app and login to your Nintendo Online account - make sure it’s the same account as you’re logged in to on your Switch.

Step 3: Head to the title screen of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Step 4: Press the ‘-’ (minus) button on your controller, and you’ll be taken through a few screens of dialogue.

Step 5: Open the Nintendo Online app on your real-life phone, and select Animal Crossing. From here, you’ll be able to see your passport, custom designs, best friends list, and a few settings. Select the ‘Keyboards’ option and start typing. That’ll translate into the game, and you’ll have a far faster and smoother experience communicating with your Animal Crossing friends.
