Nexus Features Update When?

I get the problem of integration with software written by other people, but at least to me personally the Nexus doesn't seem useful at all.
I neither stream nor own the most expensive hardware that would require temperature monitoring, so my question is, are there are additional features planned for gamers?

Hi Linition,

 

The Nexus can add extra 'buttons' for any game/gamer, allowing you to have custom macros / keybinds and not interrupt your keyboard usage. You can also use it for changing iCUE profiles, adjusting iCUE hardware in various ways (headset settings, temperature controls.) In addition, you can bind the buttons on the Nexus to open almost any application. 

There's a lot of functionality a gamer can device from the Nexus -- I had to sound corny / cliche, but it's one of those things that has a ton of uses that are only limited by your imagination. Boy that was corny sounding, and I apologize for that. You definitely should check out the pre-made screens we have for it already, though (scroll down to "Download Screens"):

Come on, you can't be serious.
"...allowing you to have custom macros / keybinds and not interrupt your keyboard usage..."
How does it not interrupt my keyboard usage when I have to move my keyboard hand over to the Nexus to press binds/macros I could just as easily keep on an easily accessible key?? Unless you want me to take my hand off my mouse to do that.

I get that it has integration for a few apps that are used for gaming/by gamers, such as temp monitoring, discord info etc... but unless you use those few, you are left with nothing but a bunch of expensive, hard-to-reach extra buttons.

What it needs is proper game integration, not simple macros that are rarely useful and much more accessible on regular keys, but rather something you CAN'T do with a simple button press.
