How to Chat
Hold R Button to Open Keyboard
On your switch, press the R button to open the option to chat. You can input what you want to say through the keyboard that will show up.
Use the NookLink to Chat
You can also use the NookLink in the Nintendo Online App to chat. Since you don't have to press the R button, your character won't stop just so you can chat.
Is There Voice Chat?

Players can also use voice chat to communicate through the Nintendo Online App's NookLink. This will allow you to talk with your friends seamlessly.
