The Home button for the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 has just become a lot more colorful ...

Ever looked at the bright white Home button on your Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 and wondered: ''What if it was purple?'' Well, it can be, with the latest Xbox update.

Microsoft has released a color adaptation scheme for the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2, which allows for the Home button to be different. Now you can swap the plain white light for a pink, green, or even a yellow!

This software, which is available on Xbox Series X|S, is able to select over 16 million shades and saturation, thanks to RGB support. However, this feature is only applicable to the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2. If you have a standard Xbox Wireless Controller, you''re out of luck for the time being.

The update comes on the same day as the release of the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 Core edition. This white version of the Elite, which was officially revealed earlier this month, is cheaper than the standard black. But it''s only because the accessories bundled with the standard edition are sold separately for the white variant.

How to Create the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 Home Page

The color of the Home button on your Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 must be updated with the latest firmware. The next time you turn on your Xbox console, you should be prompted to do this.

Head into ''My games & apps'' and find the Xbox Accessories app. If you don''t have it, you may enter the app and select (or create) a profile for your Xbox Elite Controller Series 2.

Then, you should see an all-new ''Color'' tab within your controller''''s profile. Navigate over to that and you may begin altering your Xbox Home button''s hue and saturation.

A lovely update, but...

I''m a huge fan of hardware customization, from swapping thumbsticks to RGB lighting. So I should be a huge fan of this latest Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 release. I''m pretty sure it will be later.

I think it''s a good thing that the Xbox Home button''s color is still static after being selected. It''s a petty nitpick, but as a user of my PC and Corsair K65 keyboard, I''m hardly sure why I''m so depressed about the Elite''s development. Quite a bit.

However, it''s a really good addition to the game to have it, and it should work brilliantly in tandem with Xbox Design Lab, which will be expanded sometime later this year.
