The controller can connect to the PC using a Bluetooth connection, currently the USB-C connection used for charging cannot be synced directly with PC.

In a recent post on the Steam community, they explain that they think that the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is a great match for their games:

The d-pad is ideal for fighting games and platformers and the gyro enhances aim in your action/FPS titles.

In order to test out the beta there are a couple things you will need to do first. Firstly in order to have access to the beta you will need to “opt in the Steam Client Beta“. By doing this you will be able to see the “Nintendo Switch Configuration Support” option in the Controller Settings page, this is the same page as PS4 and Xbox configuration support. You can find more details of how to set this up via the Steam Community.

There is no news on whether Steam will support Joy-Cons at this moment.
