The Xbox One controller has many advantages, but the installation time of the wireless connection with the console is not one of them. In order to connect to the console after switching on, the gamepad is required up to 5 seconds – according to modern standards, it is quite a lot and can fit on the nerves especially impatient users.
Fortunately, Microsoft without a case does not sit and already know how to solve the problem. Programmers companies are preparing to release a new gamepad firmware, which will reduce the connection time for up to 2 seconds. There is still a series of tests to be done in order to make sure of its performance. However, the participants of the XBox Preview program are free to go to a new firmware now. Major Nelson kindly provided detailed update instructions.
