X-Box Home Button Not Working

The X-Box controller does not work with the Shadow iOS. It does work when I am using Steam Link however. So I know this is a problem with Shadow. Is this a known error? I’ve mentioned this to Shadow support but no word from them.

Is there a community work around until Shadow gets this fixed?

Controllers are still being worked out.

I've got a Moga Pro and xBox Series, but I'm on Android.

Steam Link is designed around the Steam controller, so xHome is coded.  I'll double check my Android using Home. 

It usually brings up The xBox Game Bar for me.

That means your phone is overriding the home button on your android and opening the     
Xbox Game Pass for Android app right?

On iOS pressing the home button doesn’t do anything by default. It should pass like any other controller key. On the Steam Link for iOS app connected to my Shadow PC it functions exactly as it should. When I connect to my Shadow PC with the Shadow for iOS app it doesn’t work at all. Very odd behavior.

Exactly.

They are still working on the Controllers.

Next step for me is uninstalling Game Pass on Android, but, xBox Game Bar isn't 100% operational and iOS / Linux MAY be slightly behind due to Windows itself.

@DastardlyVince seems to think the Dev’s are hiding something.
