I noticed that the user interface for the chat function on the switch is copied directly from the PlayStation version. Is it possible to implement something that is more switch friendly using touchscreen control to be able to type?
This is something we're looking into.
Dandi, the Switch is both a handheld and a TV console. If you use it in handheld mode, go right ahead, but some of us use the TV and must use the joycons on the keyboard
That's why the default switch keyboard is ideal as it would support both (joycon input also) as opposed to using the ps4 interface that doesn't support touch AT ALL.
You can only use a USB keyboard plugged in to you dock for fast entry.
