Add a Battery Indicator for Connected Controllers

Since (by default) the Game Bar takes away the button that shows the controller's battery status, you should show it in the Game Bar when appropriate.

        yes this needs to happen there is currently no way to check battery level since the xbox accessories software has changed!!?

        A great idea. Maybe the controller could inform of the battery status flashing the light if the level is low

        Title says it all. A charge indicator for gaming peripherals like gamepads in the Gamebar. Right now there's no easy way to know charge level of a device like Xbox One Controller. An option to check the charge in-game by opening GameBar would be most welcome.
