Hi. I'm Max Dalton, and in this video I'm going to talk through how to play Xbox One games on a PC.
One of the best parts of the Xbox One is that Microsoft makes it easy to connect to your Xbox console and play your games and access your content from virtually anywhere on a Windows PC. You can also connect your Xbox One controller to your computer using a Micro-USB cable and use it as well. This article walks you through how to perform the initial setup of getting your console connected to your Windows computer, and also connecting your Xbox One controller to your computer.
And now, the steps to play Xbox games on a PC.
Step 1. Click the "Windows" icon in the lower left corner of your screen to launch the Start screen.
Step 2. Scroll down through the list of apps until you gets to the "X" section. Click the "Xbox" app. The Xbox app launches. You'll initially see a big green screen with the Xbox icon in the middle of it. If you've never logged in to this app before, you'll land on the Add Your Microsoft Account screen.
Step 3. Enter the username for your Microsoft account that's associated with your Xbox user profile, and then the password associated with that account. You may see a screen prompting you to sign in to this computer using this Microsoft account going forward. If you want to do that, enter your Windows password and then click "Next." Alternatively, if you want to keep user information for your Xbox app and your computer seperate for any reason, choose "Just Sign in to This App."
Step 4. The Xbox app home screen will open, showing you a variety of information associated with your account, such as games you've recently played, your activity feed, the status of friends, and much more.
Step 5. Ensure that your Xbox One is powered on, and then click the "Connection" icon on the left side of your screen. The screen will be largely blank, with the exception of a bar across the top of the screen that says "Connect to Your Xbox One."
Step 6. Click "Add a Device" to the right of Connect to Your Xbox One. As long as your Xbox One is turned on, and both the Xbox One and your PC are connected to the same wireless network, you should see your Xbox appear in the Add a Device dialog box that appears on the screen.
Step 7. Click "Connect" to the right of your Xbox One displayed in the Add a Device dialog box listing. The dialog box will close, and your Xbox One appears in the list of devices on the Connection screen. Additionally, you'll see your controller that you connected to your computer displayed under Controls as well.
Step 8. Click "Stream" in the list of options that appear to the right of your device on the Connection screen. A blue Connecting on Xbox One screen rolls up from the bottom of your screen and displays for a few seconds before your Xbox One home screen appears. From here, you can use your controller as you normally would, either to navigate to different parts of your Xbox One console, or to launch and play a game.
