  1. Possible to use XBox streaming without bluetooth controller connected?


    Is there a way to bypass the connected bluetooth device requirement to start streaming on an Android device? I'm sitting 10 ft. away from the XBox, therefore, I can use a directly connected wireless controller and headphone. There is a permanent sound click that develops if the wifi bandwidth drops that I can avoid if I use a headphone on the controller itself.

    So, what I do is have a second controller connected to bluetooth to fool the app into letting me stream. I have to turn the controller on every few minutes because it shuts off without use, and the app frustratingly won't let you continue using it without the controller being on.

    xbox one controller on pc

    Hi

    I don't think it is possible to use the Xbox 360 wireless receiver with an Xbox One controller. If your PC has Bluetooth then it is possible to connect some Xbox One controllers to a PC this way.

    Xbox doesn't connect to my PC, missing controller driver in the device manager

    Hi JoJoMaster,

    Thank you for the update. You only need an adapter if you are trying to connect wireless without using Bluetooth. You don't need an adapter to connect via Bluetooth, however not all Xbox One controllers support Bluetooth. On Bluetooth-supported controllers,
    the plastic around the Xbox button is part of the face of the controller. On controllers without Bluetooth, the plastic around the Xbox button is part of the top, where the bumpers are. It's a little hard to tell from your picture due to the lighting if your
    controller supports Bluetooth, but upon closer inspection it looks like it may be the older model that doesn't support Bluetooth. It's hard to tell from the picture so I could be wrong. If it's the older model (no 3.5mm port and plastic around the Xbox button)
    then this is the reason your laptop doesn't pick up the controller.

    If you can confirm you have the controller model that supports Bluetooth, then follow

    "Connect and troubleshoot Bluetooth on your Xbox One Wireless Controller"
    for steps on how to get the controller connected.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    xbox one elite not having bluetooth

    Hi Pickle Rick8898,

    I want to clarify what controllers have Bluetooth and which ones don't so there is no confusion. The original controller accompanying the original Xbox One console or the original Xbox Elite Wireless Controller (Series 1) does not support Bluetooth. Controllers
    made after 2017 and controllers accompanying the Xbox One S or Xbox One X console, Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, or Xbox Design Lab controller support Bluetooth. A diagram showing what controllers have Bluetooth support and which ones don't can
    be found here:
    https://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-game-streaming/project-xcloud


    If you have the original Elite controller, you cannot use that to connect to your phone via Bluetooth. If you have the Elite Series 2 controller, then you should be able to. The forums is a place to give advice or help troubleshoot an issue. If you have
    a controller that supports Bluetooth, can you further explain what happens when trying to pair the controller to your mobile device? Do you have an Android or iOS mobile device?

    Random Xbox one controller freezes when streaming xbox one to windows 10 pc

    I am experience the same thing, tried with a controller wired, using Bluetooth, and using the Xbox Wireless adapter. My only fix is to start streaming and pair the controller directly to the console. Anyone figure this out?

    Xbox 360 Bluetooth Headset problem

    You can't use it to stream media from the Xbox, because it doesn't connect to the Xbox using Bluetooth. It only connects using the voice chat protocol.

    You can only use it to stream music from your phone or other Bluetooth devices.
