Switch [BUG] Game freezes randomly in online multiplayer mode

The game will freeze randomly for around 7 seconds when in online multiplayer. It happens at every area. The game is downloaded to my SD card, and I only play with 1 friend. My farm is relatively simple and doesn’t have too much going on. This has been happening for around 7 months. It happens to both of us at different times. I am on the latest Nintendo switch version, and stardew valley is also up to date.

It happens at every area.
Are you saying the game freezes when you move to a new area? Is it that there's a black screen for a long amount of time, or that your character is actually frozen after the new area loads?

For me it happens randomly whenever I’m playing in online multiplayer. My game will just freeze anywhere from 2 seconds to 10 seconds. No black screen and it occur upon a new area loading.

I also have this issue. There's no noticeable pattern. It just happens. For 3-15 seconds the game will freeze. Then it will continue for a time like nothing happened before freezing again
