Besides using the touchscreen, also the buttons of the controller appear to work.

The possibilities of Android on the Switch are limited, mainly because there are no proper drivers for the graphic card of the Switch. Therefore, it’s not possible to play games when running Android on the device. Also, sound and the USB port don’t work for the same reason.

The color scheme of Android is also distorted due to the lack of graphic card drivers.

Internet and Bluetooth do work properly on the console.
