Steam recently released a beta update on its platform, which actually adds new features and expands support for Microsoft’s Xbox Controllers. Specifically, the beta update will add support for the Xbox Series X and Elite controllers.
As per the posting on its forum, the updates extends support for more than four Xbox Controllers, the ability to now bind the paddles on the Elite controller in the configurations tab. For the Series X controller, its share button will now also be configurable via configurations options.
In addition to the configurations expansion, the update also adds a drop-down menu in the personalisation menu for the PS5 DualSense controller player slot LED, allowing players to disable it whenever they feel like it. Also, the same LED slot will default to its original settings when multiple DualSense controllers are connected.
Once again, these features are only available in the beta version of the Steam client. So, if you wish to access it, you need to go to the Settings menu, select Account, and opt to participate in the Beta section. Oh, and you’ll need a particular driver to be installed, so just follow the instructions that come from that and you should be good to go.
