    Controller battery dies and cant switch controllers while in chat?


    So i was in party chat playing with friends in the middle of a match when my controller died, no big deal right? Just grab another and slap the old one on the charge kit and throw the headset on the freshly charged one. NOPE doesnt work. The controller worked
    just fine, started right back up and was back to playing the game. But now one one could hear me. I had to take the battery out of both my controllers and swap them and put the headset back on the controller i started chat with.

    Whats going on with this?

    :)

    Is the Xbox One battery cover a bit loose on your controller?

    actually it's smarter to have a battery option since if your controller dies you can pop in two AAs and be on your way fully charged instead of having a cord running from console to controller while playing games like in 2004. Plus the controller has a rechargeable battery pack/cable you can pick up for like $25 and never have to buy batteries again if you prefer, honestly im surprised people still don't know this?

    Controller shutting off pauses game?

    Is there a setting somewhere that I've missed that stops the "please reconnect your controller message" and pausing the game when the controller shuts down?

    I suppose in most cases it'd be quite handy, if your in the middle of something and the battery dies at least it doesn't mess everything up if it pauses.

    Playing Rocksmith, there are times when, if you're playing a load of songs, you may not touch the controller for a while and it'd be good to be able to switch the "feature" off.

    Controller battery dies and cant switch controllers while in chat?

    What you need to do when you use the new controller is go to your Home screen, up the top left left click on the users list, highlight your Gamertag and select Choose This Person.

    This will assign that controller to the Gamertag and your chat headset will start working through it again.

    Hope this helps Controller battery dies and cant switch controllers while in chat? :)

    Damn it!!!!

    I dunno if your batteries played a role in the controller issue. But I did notice the Duracell batteries that came with my controller died rather quick. Switched it out with some Rayovac and haven't had a problem since. As for your Kinect issue I am thinking
    it could be faulty wiring.

    Loads apps very slow

    Thank you, sniffles x! That helped. I have a second question real quick, on the 360, I could press the Xbox button on the controller and the controller battery life would show up. I cant find it on the Xbox One. Is there a way to see the remaining battery
    life before it just dies?

    Xbox Revealed

    @IceStorm III I'm preferential to the PS controller overall but I agree. When I got my xbox 360 recently that was one thing I liked, that you could just switch out batteries and charge the old one while using the new one. Though I am slowly getting that
    the controller didn't come with a chargeable battery at all? (I got a good deal on a used one on craigslist and it came with a chargeable battery so I just assumed that is how it came). That would be a bit annoying imho. I prefer rechargable batteries rather
    than having to remember to keep a stash of batteries around (plus honestly that gets expensive). But it is nice it has removable batteries that you can either switch in new batteries or make sure to have two rechargeable batteries and switch when one dies.

    -

    Add in that you can connect the controller to the xbox and charge the rechargeable battery while the xbox is off (meaning when I go to sleep or am not using it), that's so much nicer than Sony where you have to have the PS3 on (I wasn't pleased when I discovered
    that).

    xbox1 controller always shows mic plugged in

    Remove the battery from the controller, while the battery is out hold on the power button of the controller for 1 minute while the battery is out and then plug the battery back in and turn on the controller, let me know if it worked
