Microsoft’s Xbox October firmware update released

Microsoft today launched a new October firmware update for Xbox game consoles and Xbox Windows applications, bringing the long-awaited function of mapping controllers to keyboard keys .

The keyboard mapping function supports the Xbox Elite Elite Controller 2nd generation and the Xbox Accessible Controller . Players can use the Xbox Accessories app to map the buttons of the controller.

“Keyboard remapping has been a long-requested feature from the PC gaming and accessibility communities, and it helps scale games with many commands, limited remapping capabilities, or no controller support,” Jonathan Hildebrandt, principal Xbox team manager, said in a blog post.


NaijaTechNews discovered that another new feature of the October firmware update is the ability to import game screen recordings into Windows 11’s built-in video editor Clipchamp.

Within the “Import Media” section of Clipchamps, players will now find an “Xbox” tab that allows them to browse and import videos saved on Xbox cloud storage and make simple edits.

Additionally, Microsoft is updating the diagnostic data controls available to Xbox players to an account-based process. Users only need to select it once, and other devices such as Xbox consoles, Xbox Cloud Gaming (beta), PCs, and mobile devices will automatically update to use the same diagnostic data sending settings.

The October firmware update also brings an experimental feature where selected players will be able to send party invitations from their profile page and join friends’ games without having to browse their friends list.
