The 8bitdo Xbox Multimedia Remote lets you use your game console to comfortably watch Netflix too!
Your Xbox can run Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, YouTube, and Spotify, which sounds pretty impressive at first until you realize you have to navigate these apps with a game controller. Using your Xbox to binge as much as to play, 8BitDo’s Xbox Multimedia Remote could come in handy. Designed to let you use your game console as a media console as well, the remote gives you a traditional TV-style experience, with the appropriate navigation, playback and volume control buttons.
Although it is essentially a third-party controller, the media remote appears to belong to the Xbox design family and also works beautifully with the game console. It is available in the same colors as the Xbox (black or white). ) and in two sizes: a smaller remote with all the basic controls and a longer one with a few extra buttons. The remote works seamlessly with Xbox One, Series X, and Series S, letting you wake up your console simply by pressing the Home button and navigating the interface as comfortably as with a TV remote. If you’re in the mood to gamble, the remote also comes with XYAB buttons, but don’t expect spectacular wins with that! This remote is for Netflix and Chill, not for GTA and Thrill!
