    Xbox One controller broken by Windows Anniversary Update

    Driver rollback works for USB or Wifi dongle but not Bluetooth.

    Xbox One Chatpad not working on Windows 10

    UPDATE: After forcing a firmware update even though the firmware is up to date, the Chatpad now works when connected over USB or the USB wireless controller dongle. It still does not work over Bluetooth, however.

    Does a USB Bluetooth dongle work with an Xbox?

    If it's an "off the shelf" Bluetooth dongle, then no.

    In order to work, an USB device needs specific drivers, so the computer or console knows which kind of data is coming in through the USB Port.

    Since you can't install additional drivers on a Xbox console, you'll have to live with those drivers that come with the console, and that is without a basic Bluetooth stack.

    So no, you can't simply plug in a Bluetooth dongle hoping the headset will work.

    You will need specific Xbox Licensed headsets to work wireless on the Xbox One. Or simply get a standard 3.5mm headset and connect that to your wireless controller.

    Or get a wireless headset that has it's own wireless base station that connects to the physical audio output of the Xbox One (i.e. optical TOSLINK), and gets power through the USB Port. But currently, no audio is put out via USB. Then the headset's base
    station transmits the sound via it's own proprietary wireless protocol, or if the Base Station supports it, Bluetooth.

    I think only supported bluetooth dongles that are pre paired to a headset might work. sort of like the PDP afterglow AG 9+ headset.
    Yes, I use the AG9+ and can confirm this.
