All of these updates are about Android 8.1 Oreo via LineageOS 15.1, so don’t have an expectation of Pie or Q on Nintendo Switch as of now. Once android is up and running on the switch you will still be able to use the joy controller but only with Bluetooth connectivity. Audio will be supported as there are no issues with that.

Things may get more sorted in future releases, assuming the developers will fix any issues they are facing now. The forum thread also furnishes you detailed information on downloading OS image and installing Nintendo Switch.

Although you do need to wait for an extra week so that everything is ready as the developers are still working for Android release on Nintendo Switch.
