According to ShrewdHunter, as of the update on the 23rd of March Valve has added support for the Nintendo Switch Pro controller through Steam Link. ShrewdHunter explains that the controller works perfectly fine but currently doesn't have the 'rumble' feature.

ShrewdHunter also checked if the Joy Con controllers were supported through Steam Link but unfortunately this didn't work, Steam Link did recognize the controllers though as the screen displayed 'Joy Con L.' Check out the below image to see ShrewdHunters pairing.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
