Microsoft has introduced a new version of the Joystick application to its users with the May 2019 update. It became more useful with new features brought to the previously non-functional Joystick, and Windows 10 users enjoyed this almost completely revamped application. We have compiled 6 features of the Joystick application for you. Here are those features;
Chatting with Friends
This feature has been used on Valve’s Steam platform for a long time. With the chat feature, users can add friends and chat with friends. One of the most important features Microsoft has added to the Game Stick is this chat menu.
Broadcasting and Taking Screenshots
In fact, that’s exactly the purpose of Microsoft’s Joystick application. However, Microsoft has also updated the release and screenshot menu in its latest update, making this feature even more available. Now you can use this Joystick to make short-term recordings in the background, take screenshots or record your entire gameplay.
Monitoring System Performance
One of the new features Microsoft offers on the Joystick is the ability to monitor system performance. With this feature, you can instantly check your CPU, video card and RAM usage values. Although it was developed by both third-party and hardware manufacturers such as MSI, Microsoft has integrated everything into a single application.
Setting Application Sounds
This feature is one of Microsoft’s Joystick innovations. In fact, this feature already exists. But to do that, you had to go back to the desktop and make adjustments manually, even in the game. This was not something that was possible at the time of the game. However, this feature allows you to manage audio controls without having to go to the desktop.
Fixing Any Panel
Usage habits may vary from person to person. This is normal, but sometimes it is annoying to be unable to customize the applications. Considering this, Microsoft has included ‘Needles’ in the Joystick application, which users can customize. In this way, users will be able to dock and move the joystick to any place they want.
Spotify support, one of the most popular online song platforms, was one of Microsoft’s thoughtful innovations. With the addition of Spotify, which has a large number of users, to the Joystick, gamers can control the song without having to interrupt their gaming pleasure and go down to the desktop. We can call this support the most important feature added to the Joystick.
With all these features, the Joystick application, which is being used with many users, received full marks. So what do you think about it? Do you like Microsoft’s revamped Joystick? You can share your ideas with us.
