Check your controller's battery level on the Xbox screen

When I say Xbox screen, it's essentially your TV screen where your console is connected, where the actual gaming takes place.

As per the official support page for Xbox, you can locate your controller's battery life on the upper right corner of your screen.

But take note that only one controller's battery capacity is shown on your Xbox screen. And it is the one where the Xbox button has been pressed to kickstart the console.
