    Hey,

    I'm looking for some information on reading which game I'm playing outside of the friend list. I want to make an application that pipes this info to Discord or Steam so my friends can see my current game even if it is not on my pc. Does anybody know if that is possible? I thought my Nintendo would show it but I couldn't find it. Maybe I can intercept it from the Switch with a MITM approach or something. Any help, even including where to start researching would be really appreciated :)

    hopefully nintendo will release the app soon.

    Im not sure if you can route the information from the parental app like that tho.
    I beleive you have to pair your app with your switch to start off with and then i think everything is on there sever and you basically have to log in each time.

    But i could be wrong, you might be able to make what you want.

    I checked the source code of the app and it is all so complicated that I can't make heads or tails from it. I think for now it won't be possible
