Since not that long ago AMD drivers has builtin feature called Remoteplay, let's you stream your games to phone/tablet at will. I'm sure nvidia ain't slackers either and they have something like that too.

Obviously AMD link is android app and got no switch version. But switch got android, right? It's beta but still. So do you think it would a valid plan to install android on switch, then install AMD link there and play some remote games from PC, while sitting on toilet? I'm a big fan of toilet gaming, you see.

I may want to try it myself, but I need extra SD card of decent size, plus a huge motivation. I think I'll get some when I'm gonna play outer worlds, but until that I don't think I'll be using my PC for gaming.

We had switch native up called inhome switching, but it seems to be abandoned project, and it was dropped before it was fully refined, so it's not all that usable as is. Or AMD/Nvidia gonna release official streaming apps for nintendo. Fat chance.

The NVidia streaming stuff is working well on Switch android, apparently the Steam one is too. IDK if anyone's tried AMD's one but it's well worth a go.
Wifi isn't perfect on Switch android yet and analogue sticks don't act as analogue, only as on/off in whatever direction, but those things will eventually improve with updates.

I can't understand why anyone it's not interested on port moonlight to switch, its the perfect hardware to play streaming games from pc.

Android doesn't support analog control, joycons must be connected by bluetooth, wifi can fail, no proper sleep mode...

Even psvita had moonlight natively
