Nintendo Switch unplayable in China due to Google connection

Chinese Switch owners were unexpectedly unable to access Nintendo Switch Online after purchasing it, encountering black screen and connection errors. This is because Nintendo’s voice chat is hosted on Google servers, and all Google services are banned in China. Nintendo is unlikely to do much, given the Switch isn’t even officially sold in China, but we’ll have to wait for more information.
