What is new in September 2022 Xbox update?

Customizable Xbox button lights

If you own a second-gen Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, the latest Xbox update brings you a bit of PC gaming with customizable Xbox button lights. Now you can change the default white color to any other. The LED inside the button supports up to 16 million variants, so you have plenty of variants to choose.

To change the color of the Xbox button on your controller, launch the Xbox Accessories app on your console or computer. Unfortunately, this neat trick works only in the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, including the Core in White variant Microsoft announced recently.

Revamped Library

Thanks to a revamped and streamlined library, browsing games on your Xbox is now easier. The new variant splits the library across tabs for the games you own and subscription-based services, such as Xbox Game Pass, EA Play, or Games with Gold.

Last month, Microsoft introduced party chat noise suppression on Xbox Series X|S consoles. This feature is now available for games sticking to the previous-gen Xbox One consoles and PC gamers using Windows 10 and 11. Noise suppression will help eliminate unwanted noises and interruptions like gamepad clicks, breathing, fan noises from your hot PC, etc.
