If we are to believe the data mining findings from the series of tweets below it seems that Nintendo is intending to release a new hardware revision of the Nintendo switch as the data mine reveals a new SoC that could pave the foundation for a New Nintendo Switch console development. Alongside the system OS update, a new update for the Joy-Con controllers has also been released.

As outlined on Nintendo's official support site for the Switch, the update adds Facebook and Twitter friend suggestions, 24 new Arms and Kirby-themed user icons, and the ability to filter news content from specific channels - as well as to mark news as unread.

Suspect in killing of Ky. police officer still on the loose
A Pikeville, Kentucky police officer shot and killed in the line of duty was reportedly ambushed. Trooper Martin located Officer Hamilton who had sustained a fatal gunshot wound.

According to Nintendo, the controls are a tie-in with a separate app that allows parents to add specific titles to a whitelist.

Also new in the update is that Captured videos in your Album are now subject to parental controls if you have those set up. This will make it easier to find friends who can't be accessed via Friend Codes although they still have to accept the invitation.

The bug fixes include system update which is related to Play Activity. These icons can be used with their friend profile to indicate that they are a fan of these games. You do not need to have the controllers connected to the Switch console in order for them to update, which is pretty cool.

Google Home can now set location-based reminders on your phone
If you say, "remind me to grab some cereal from the grocery store", then you'll be notified when you get to a grocery store. Last October, Google first announced that it was following Amazon's footsteps and adding the multistep smart home routines .

Also, the recent firmware update addressed the issue that came with the Nintendo Switch anniversary where play-time records are displayed incorrectly.

Nintendo has also amped up the download speed which will be faster even in Sleep Mode and it will also work for games that have been purchased on PC or phone.

You will also get notifications for when pre-purchased software is ready to play.
