When on the Add Friend page, there will be several ways for you to add friends:

  • Search for local users – this option will scan for Nintendo switch users nearby. When you connect to another user, both of you will see four buttons and you will have to press the same one to be added as Nintendo Switch friends.
  • Search for users you played with – with this option you will get to see the list of Nintendo Switch users you recently played with. You can see the profile of the user and send a friend request.
