March Xbox Update: Pin to Quick Resume, Controller and Audio updates, and More

Summary

  • Pin to Quick Resume.
  • Xbox Wireless Controller Share button remapping.
  • Audio setup wizard.

Team Xbox is excited to continue bringing new ways to make Xbox better, with you at the center, as we refine the experience and deliver brand new features based on your feedback. This month’s update includes the ability to pin up to two games in Quick Resume, options to remap the Share button on Xbox Wireless Controllers, and a new audio setup wizard.


Pin to Quick Resume 


Quick Resume is powered by the technical capabilities of the innovative Xbox Velocity Architecture in Xbox Series X|S. It lets you seamlessly switch between multiple games and resume gameplay instantly from where you left off. With this update, you can now pin up to two games in Quick Resume on your Xbox Series X|S consoles. Your pinned games will only drop out of Quick Resume if you manually remove them or if a game takes a mandatory update.

Anywhere you see your Quick Resume group, you can select a game, press the Menu button, and choose Pin to Quick Resume. If you already have two games pinned, you’ll be asked which pin you want to replace.

Xbox Wireless Controller – Share button Remapping 

Xbox Wireless Controller – Share Button Remapping 


The Share button on the Xbox Wireless Controller lets you take a screenshot by tapping it or record a video clip by holding it down for a couple seconds.

If you like to customize, you can now remap the Xbox Wireless Controller Share button and assign a wide range of custom actions. The updated Xbox Accessories app unlocks new button remapping actions for Xbox accessories, including Share button remapping for other actions like mute TV, open friends list, open achievements, and many others. The ability to redefine your controller actions also provides a way to easily enable assistive technologies for gamers with disabilities. Elite Series 2 Controllers, Xbox Adaptive Controllers, and other devices have some new actions as well. See the full list of actions and all available button remapping in the Xbox Accessories app.
