Valve’s latest release of the Steam Client Beta has made some changes to Steam Input, which now includes support for the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers! Previously in 2018, Valve added support for the Pro Controller, and in 2022, has decided to give the same treatment to the Joy-Con.

Additionally, the update also improves “support for the Nintendo [Switch] Online classic controllers.”
