  1. Xbox Series X/S Controller Bluetooth Not Working After Latest Firmware Update


    After updating my Xbox Series controller to the latest firmware (version 5.5.2641.0), I am unable to connect it via Bluetooth to my Window 10 PC (running latest updated Win10 version), iPhone or my MacBook Pro.

    Previously, the controller connected to both of these machines via Bluetooth without issue. I was wondering if this is a known issue, or if there's a possible fix for this? Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Thanks!

    :)

    Xbox one S serie controller and xbox one V3 wireless PC dongle

    Hi,

    The Series S and X controllers work on same devices the earlier controller can connect to. This includes:

    Xbox One Game receiver for Windows 10

    Bluetooth (PC, Android, iOS)

    Xbox One, One S, X and Series X/S.

    Elite Series 2 controller Bluetooth issue

    I've had similar issues with the regular Xbox One (S) controller. Constant disconnects/blinking light and poor game performance when using my Intel Z390 onboard bluetooth, but it works fine when using a third party Kinivo bluetooth adapter.

    Using latest Intel drivers and latest controller firmware.

    The Kinivo adapter is based on the Broadcom BCM20702 chipset.

    Xbox Series X Sync button/synced controller stopped. Sync button must work as I am able to get to BIOS. Sync button wont blink.

    In this case, it wouldn't be a bad idea to update your controller's firmware. You can do this on your Series X or your Windows 10 PC. To do it on the Series X, connect it using the USB cable and then go to Settings > Devices & connections > Accessories, and then select the controller you want to update. On the Xbox Wireless Controller screen, select “…” to check the firmware version for your controller. Then, select the Firmware version square, and then press Next to start the update process.

    To do it on Windows 10, just download the Xbox Accessories app from the Microsoft Store. If you already have it installed, just run it. After opening the app, the procedure to update is the same one as on the Series X, press the "..." button and follow those steps.

    Check if your controller works correctly after doing this.

    Hi

    Given it started after a firmware update, then it's likely the update caused it...sometimes updates have unintended consequences and it's possible that it has disrupted the ability to use the new Series X/S controllers on older XBox One systems. If that's the case, they will hopefully fix it with another update, though it may be a while

    Xbox One Chatpad not working on Windows 10

    UPDATE: After forcing a firmware update even though the firmware is up to date, the Chatpad now works when connected over USB or the USB wireless controller dongle. It still does not work over Bluetooth, however.
