How do you use AMIIBOs with the Switch?

-

I was able to use AMIIBOs with the Wii U by scanning the base of the model over the game pad where there was a little indicator. I know the switch version of Breath of the Wild supports AMIIBOs, but I can’t figure out how to use them. I have the tool active in game like I did with the Wii U, but when I try to scan the base of the AMIIBO over the joycons nothing happens. I also tried scanning it over the screen on the Switch but that didn’t work either. How do you make them work with the Nintendo Switch?

You need to hold it still for a few moments for it to register. I’m not exactly sure where the sensor is but it is Inside the right joycon. It works for me when I place it on top of the right thumbstick and wait for a few seconds.
