Xbox One controllers will get some features that were only found on the Xbox Series X and S controllers

Microsoft released Firmware update for Xbox One Bluetooth Controllers, Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controllers, and Xbox Adaptive Controllers. So far, it is only available through the Insider Program. The update brings these devices back to certain features that were previously only available on Xbox Series X and S controllers.

The new firmware brought two changes. The first is the implementation of Bluetooth Low Energy support. This will have a positive effect on compatibility with different devices and the quality of the connection. Users will be able to use the controllers to play games on Windows 10 PCs, as well as smartphones and tablets running iOS 15+ and Android. A firmware update will allow the controllers to remember the same host for both Bluetooth and Xbox Wireless, such as a smartphone and a console. You can quickly switch between them.

The second change is the introduction of the Dynamic Latency Input (DLI) feature. It allows for more efficient transmission of signals from the controller to the device. The latency will be reduced and the gameplay will be more responsive.

The update will be released to all users in the coming weeks, Microsoft has not yet announced the exact date.
