Microsoft has released a new video showcasing the new Xbox Wireless Controller model that will replace the existing version when it releases alongside the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles in November.

The main focus of the video is the new Share button which allows gamers to take a screenshot with a quick tap or record video with a longer press.

The function is identical to the existing method which can be activated by voice commands or via the tapping of the X and Y buttons after opening up the system menu, it simply gives people a quicker physical option.

Here’s the video:

The new Xbox Wireless Controller will release in a black, blue, and white option and will support Windows 10 computers, smartphones, and both Xbox One and Xbox Series X console generations. The Share button will also work on both gens as long as the latest operating system update is installed.
