When to expect a fix for Xbox controller disconnection bugs?

For now, they address a few known issues such as:

  • no button input when connected via Bluetooth on Windows 10
  • controller not working with certain Steam games
  • frequent disconnections

In each case, Microsoft suggests only workarounds, though, but further stable fixes should be expected with the next console update.

How to fix Xbox Series X|S Wireless Controller issues?

1. No button input when connected via Bluetooth on Windows 10

The recommended workarounds are to make sure that both your Windows 10 device and your controller run on the latest updates.

While Windows 10 updates are installed automatically, optional updates might be also useful. You will find these under View optional updates options in Settings > Update & Security.

As far as controller updates go, check for updates in the Xbox Accessories app.

  1. Install the app from Microsoft Store, if you don’t have it already.
  2. Open the app.
  3. Connect your controller by using a USB cable or the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows.
  4. You should be prompted to install any available updates.

2. Controller not working with certain Steam games

The solution is already included in the Steam client beta, so you will need to join the platform’s beta program for more details.

The changes will only take effect after you’ve restarted Steam.

It’s not clear whether this will be launched for the general public in the near future.

3. Frequent disconnections

For some time now, users have reported controller lag or disconnection when playing AC Valhalla, WD Legion, or Rocket League.

Firmware updates are strongly recommended in this case as well, with the promise that the teams are working on a fix that will be released with a future console update.
