Well shit looks like Nintendo dropped the ball then. Pretty stupid to leave such a basic feature out.
It's not stupid, it's just not a priority for them. The current lack of it hasn't impacted sales, and it is almost certainly something they have in their dev bucket. This is not their first time releasing this feature late in the console dev cycle, in fact, they have every single generation since such a feature became a requirement (on the Wii). As time goes on, and Switches begin to age, then the priority for the feature will increase.
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
