New SteamOS Update Adds Xbox One Elite Controller and Bluetooth Support
A new update has recently hit SteamOS, which not only brings security patches and other improvements to the Linux system, but also adds support for one popular device, the Xbox One Elite controller.
The Xbox One Elite controller is a special version of the Xbox One’s regular controller featuring a variety of buttons, including some hidden underneath, that gamers can use to swap around and assign specific functions. With the latest 2.60 update, the Xbox One owners would be able to give the new controller a spin on SteamOS, but sadly only if it’s wired.
If that wasn’t enough, version 2.60 also adds Bluetooth functionality which means you’ll be able to connect a variety of gaming headsets and controllers without a wire in sight, even the DualShock 4 for PlayStation 4.
While the additions will help the platform, SteamOS still lags a long way behind Windows when it comes to gaming performance. Hopefully, Valve will keep releasing more updates and we could see that changing soon.
