Earlier this month Microsoft outlined the next wave of features on their way to Xbox One as a part of the upcoming Xbox Spring Update. Following last year's Xbox Fall Update, this latest revision of the operating system (OS) is set to deliver support for 1440p displays, an improved Microsoft Edge experience and much more.
While the next Xbox One update is still a while out from a public release, those enrolled in the Alpha ring of the Xbox Insider Program can already test out these new features. Microsoft has now released a new feature for those running the latest build, enabling the ability to use controller sharing over its Mixer live streaming service.
When in use, a Mixer streamer can hand off control of their console to one audience member. Connecting a controller or using an on-screen controller replacement, they can provide button inputs that are directly translated to the streamer's game. Paired with Mixer's FTL streaming technology, the feature should deliver low latency gameplay across the globe. Mixer controller sharing can be found under the "Broadcast" tab of the Guide menu, within your streaming settings.
