Great news. I always hated how long it took. I think the controllers should update automatically though instead of having to manually update them.

"Quick Connect – previous controller connections to an Xbox One took 4-5 seconds when powering on a controller, now they should occur in ~2 seconds"

or at least notify you somehow that an update is available

This. It would be good to do it remotely but it won't happen. The biggest advancement would be them updating wirelessly but again, I can't see that happen.

I don't think the chance to have an interruption to update while playing would be widely accepted, best to have control over it.

I'm really impressed that such an update can even happen, any improvement is welcome.

I'll invite you. No guarantees tho! The Xbox overloads decide ultimately.

Controller connects almost instantly now.

like the PS3/PS4 controller. also does the controller turn on as soon as you press the home button or do you still have to hold it for a sec or two. that the one thing i like about the PS controller, maybe cause its bluetooth but it turns on and connects instantly.

It's instant now finally. Doesn't flash like it used to. Before it flashed 4 times before you could use it. Now you press it, comes on and just works. Small but really nice update.
