Updates is been tested and perfected by Microsoft that will let the Xbox series x and s use remote controls navigate through the dashboard. This new dashboard is only available to selected insiders that will test and check for bugs before it’s made available to the public. This update contains HDMI-CEC for allowing remote controls to access the dashboard and control apps and settings.
Because of this, you will no longer need to reach for your Xbox controller to navigate through the dashboard. As I have said earlier this update is only available to Xbox Insider rings and Alpha Skip-Ahead.
Once this update is done being tested you can expect it to roll out to the public in the next couple of months.
