If you are a member of the Xbox Preview Program, I recommend you update your Xbox One controller(s) with the latest preview build (OS version > 1502.150120) which provides the following updates:
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.
If possible can someone invite me to the program I want to check if this update fixes the right analog constantly drifting upward. Gt: i b3 ammo mamo
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.
This is a welcome update indeed. Its been awhile since we had one!
Hi is anyone that is able to give me invite to preview program? Would be most appreciated.
These XB1 controller updates are great. I wonder if Sony have a similar feature to allow their controllers to receive firmware update to allow the user to turn of the blue light and maybe increase the battery a bit on the DS4? I know there was an update to allow for dimming the DS4 light but not turning of the light itself.
The LED lights do not drain a lot of battery. I believe there have been articles testing the power consumption. The impact would most likely be negligible.
This is a great update! I too was wondering if the sudden up on my original controller would be fixed too
Can someone please send me an invite to the Microsoft Preview Program.... My Gamertag is: JayHBK
I've got two xbox ones, two accounts, three controllers and only one account is in the preview program. Does anyone know if I will experience problems with my account that is not a part of the preview program if I update all three controllers?
you should be ok... As a preview member you should know what to do if you find new errors or bugs, feedback! lol
