Xbox Elite 2 Controller will not be able to take advantage of the new Share button and related functionality found on new Xbox controllers, including those that ship with the Xbox Series X and Series S.
A Microsoft representative was asked if the Elite 2’s Profile button, found in the same location as a new controller’s Share button, could be repurposed as that Share button instead.
The Microsoft representative replied:
No. The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 controller allows you to map ‘Share recent captures,’ ‘Start/Stop recording’ and ‘Take Screenshot’ to any button on the controller, except for the Xbox, view, menu, pairing and profile buttons.
The double press and press-and-hold capabilities are unique to the new Share button on the Xbox Wireless Controller.
