According to a recent report from the 2019 Game Developers Conference, various Nintendo Switch controllers will soon be compatible with Google Chrome via Bluetooth technology. Certain controllers, such as the Pro Controller, will also be able to be connected through a USB cable.
According to a denofgeek article:
