    How to Activate/Deactivate HD Rumble

    Instructions for activating/deactivating the HD rumble or controller vibration for the Joy-Con controllers.


    HD Rumble can be used with Nintendo Switch Lite using a supported, wireless controller (Joy-Con or Pro Controller).

    Additional Information:

    When controller vibration is first turned on, the controller used to activate this setting will momentarily vibrate. However, once activated, this setting will be enabled for all paired controllers.

    Complete These Steps:

    1. From the HOME Menu select "System Settings", then scroll through the menu on the left-hand side and select "Controllers and Sensors".
    2. To activate HD rumble, select "Controller Vibration" on the right-hand side. Select it again to deactivate HD rumble.
