If you’re in a brightly lit room these days, chances are you’re in the middle of setting up a game. Whether it’s a mouse, case or keyboard, almost every peripheral dedicated to gamers is now equipped with stylish RGB lighting. Microsoft now wants to jump on that train and is planning a software update for Windows 11 that will equip the operating system with an LED controller for gamers.
Razer Chroma and Co. date soon?
Not only do a number of accessories now have RGB lighting, but with apps like Razer Chroma, peripherals can also sync up with each other and with what’s happening on screen. In this way, a more immersive gaming experience is created by coordinating the lighting of all devices and matching what is happening in the game.
The upcoming Windows 11 update should make all applications from well-known manufacturers unnecessary and integrate the corresponding lighting control programs directly into the operating system.
What we know about the planned update so far
primogeniture twitter user (@employee) already posted details about the planned update in February this year:
As the images in the tweet show, with the planned Windows 11 update, the full lighting of all connected peripherals can be synchronized and adjusted. For example, brightness, speed of effects, color and much more can be set in detail.
However, there is still a slight drop in bitterness: a Twitter user notes that such a software tool has been in the planning stage at Microsoft for years and that the first ideas appeared as early as 2018.
Unfortunately, we can’t expect that to happen anytime soon.
