This latest update brings new accessibility features to Microsoft Store, better colour filters for the Xbox Series X/S, new audio output settings and a controller firmware update.

Its also designed to improve stability in several games, such as NBA2K22, FIFA 22 and Battlefield 2042, because of reports of these games turning consoles off with no warning that began in September.

Microsoft also released new controller firmware

These new accessibility tags will allow players with disabilities to find out if a game is playable for them prior to purchase.

Developers will now be able to tag their games with supported accessibility features such as Narrated Game Menus, Subtitle Options, Input Remapping, Full Keyboard Support, and Single Stick Gameplay.

Game publishers can also include links to additional accessibility information for their titles if they choose to do so.

Improved colour filters have also been added as part of the update, making it easier for players with colour blindness, or any other colour-related accessibility issues to play games, read menus and navigate the system.

A new audio experience is also part of the update, which Microsoft hopes will streamline the process of managing audio sources on the console.

In a new controller firmware update, the tech giant revealed that it is bringing the innovation of Dynamic Latency Input (DLI) to our Xbox One Wireless Controller with Bluetooth support, Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, and Xbox Adaptive Controllers.

Dynamic Latency Input delivers controller inputs more efficiently to your Xbox console for a more responsive gaming experience and seemingly instantaneous action.

Several new features will be rolling out soon to the Xbox app as well. It will become easier to share your game captures with friends, wherever they happen to be. 

Link sharing is coming soon and lets you quickly get a link to your epic game moments and screen captures and share them anywhere across the internet.

Another feature on the way is the ability to see the top trending content from Xbox gamers spotlighted in the Xbox app, where you can watch, like, comment, and share posts of other players game captures.
