New Xbox One update lets you sign in with your favorite controller

Mixer co-streaming. You can now co-stream via Mixer (formerly Beam) with up to three friends.

To line up with today's update on the Xbox One, Microsoft is also updating the Xbox App on iOS and Android.

If you're one to mess about with your profile images, edit your avatar down to the last detail, and spend a lot of time changing and updating your personal info, then you'll be on board with the latest update from Xbox Live, which adds an important feature so many people have been waiting for: custom gamerpics.

As detailed on Xbox Wire, custom gamer pics, as well as club profile pics and backgrounds can be uploaded from your console or through the Xbox App. Nelson urges you to "keep it clean", though, as everyone can see what you upload.

The Xbox One update also gives players the option to link and Xbox One profile to a specific controller, which will be helpful for family members who share an Xbox One but each own different controllers. We're back in Hall 8 of the Koelnmesse, North entrance, this year and you won't want to miss the opportunity to play a wide collection of the games coming to Xbox over the next 12 months.

Xbox App on iOS and Android updates bring support for LFG Sharing, Game Pass Browsing, an updated Language/Location Setting and an Android only feature supporting Messaging Chat Bubbles. You can now link a specific controller to an Xbox profile for easy, automatic sign-in. You can create your own "Killer Insticnt" tournaments in Arena. The console that is now in research and development also has a code name, according to Windows Central Editor Jez Corden. As you'd expect, the live show will be streamed on Mixer, though we'll likely see it streamed elsewhere as well. When a new message arrives, a new chat bubble will appear on your phone, no matter what app or game you're now using.
