Finally gets an update

Microsoft has finally released an update which will bring support for the Xbox Wireless Adapter on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 OS.

Released back in October, Microsoft's Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows, which allowed PC users to pair up to eight Xbox One Wireless controllers and up to four chat headsets or two stereo headsets, was only working on Windows 10 OS, while Steam OS or earlier Windows OS versions were not supported. 

While Windows 10 OS was a free upgrade, plenty of users and gamers decided to stay with Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 OS, but thankfully, Microsoft has now announced an update which allows the Xbox Wireless Adapter to work on both those earlier Windows versions. Unfortunately, Steam OS support is still missing.

In case you missed it earlier, the adapter is priced at US $24.99 as a standalone unit or can be bought together with an Xbox One Wireless Controller for US $79.95.
