It looks like Google will soon be adding support for both the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons and Pro Controller in the Chrome web browser. Why was this made? Because Google are making their own video game streaming service which uses the Chrome browser and they would like to support as many controllers as possible. Don’t be surprised to see Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers supported as well for it.
