Microsoft has finally added the ability to check the Xbox Controller’s battery directly from the Windows 10 Game Bar. The feature will allow gamers to check the battery while playing games and take necessary measures if the battery is low.
The news was announced on Twitter by Major Nelson who confirmed that Windows 10 users should now see a battery icon on the top right of the Game Bar. The battery will show up automatically when a user connects their Xbox Controller wirelessly. In case you didn’t know, you can launch the Game bar by pressing Windows+G keys or press the Xbox button on your controller.
