Nintendo just dropped a semi-useful 5.0 patch for Switch

New icons, faster PC purchase downloads, news filters

Nintendo has been doing a decent job of patching the Switch, and even if it has a long ways to go in some areas, at least we're getting more than just "stability" fluff.

As part of its 5.0 update, the Switch now has better social features (adding friends via Facebook and Twitter), more icons, better PC to Switch downloading (it queues faster), news filters, more secure PIN entry, parental controls for video capture, notifications for when pre-purchased software is ready, and Pro Controller grip color icons.

The big one for me is news filters, as my multiple accounts from different regions constantly spam my feed. Cloud saves when though?
