The new consoles have been in the market for a good while, but it seems that something new is being discovered very frequently. It seems that observant users on Reddit pointed out how the controller is able to sync between the console and Windows 10 without the need of reconfiguring the controller. The Xbox Series X controller syncs across consoles and Windows 10 without needing to reconfigure the controller like you would a DualShock 4.
Xbox Series X Controller Syncs seamlessly between devices
The Xbox Series X is a versatile and truly splendid console. While the console is still relatively new, some new features are still being discovered.
According to a newly discovered feature of the console. The video below demonstrates the feature in use.
Keep in mind that this only works with Xbox Series X/S Controllers and Bluetooth connections, not with the wireless adapter setup.
Currently, on DualShock 4 and DualSense controllers, you have to resync the controllers when used between new devices if you want to use them with your PS4 or PS5.
The controller feature should work on most versions of Windows 10, given that you are on the latest update. As we can’t say for certain which OS build pushed for the inclusion of Xbox Series controller drivers.
This is indeed a very handy feature, especially for people who use the Xbox controller with their phones for xCloud or for use with their laptops for gaming on their Windows PC.
Considering the presence of GamePass on PC now, it would stand to reason that GamePass users on console and PC would want to carry over the same controller on both devices.
As the new generation of consoles begins to settle in, we will find out new and interesting features as they develop. For now, this feature is something that gamers on a console, mobile, and PC will find equally useful.
