To use voice chat during sleep mode, go to Other Settings in this app, then select Power Saving Settings and deactivate battery optimization for this app.

Promises for the full functionality of the Nintendo Switch Online app indicate that the full, paid version will be much better, but that doesn't erase the soreness of how half-baked this app continues to be, despite this much-needed improvement. Hopefully this is the first in a long line of improvements to the Switch's system, because for many, it's now hard to imagine paying a yearly fee for the service in the state it launched in.
