If you love being able to sync your Nintendo controllers with new devices and applications, you might be a fan of Valve’s latest update to Steam. The company responsible for hits such as Half-Life, Left 4 Dead and the Portal series has revealed it’s added support for Nintendo Joy-Con controllers in its latest Steam Client beta.

If you’ve got access to Steam and this particular client, it means you can now sync your Joy-Con and use them as a controller. The patch notes mention how they are supported individually and also can be used in a pair.

“Added support for Nintendo Joy-Con controllers, both individually as a mini-gamepad and combined into pairs”

This latest update follows Valve adding support for Nintendo’s Switch Online classic controllers at the end of July. This includes the NES, SNES, N64 and Mega Drive / Genesis wireless controllers. In this latest Steam Client Beta update, Valve has also apparently “improved support for the Nintendo Online classic controllers”.

Valve has also previously added support for Nintendo’s Switch Pro Controller in 2018, and has even made pads like Hori’s Pokkén Tournament DX Pro Controller compatible. Would you be interested in using your Joy-Con with Steam games? Tell us down in the comments.
