    Wireless Gaming Adapters: can not connect to windows 10 via bluetooth


    Wireless Gaming Adapters: can not connect to windows 10 via bluetooth
    Hi,

    i purchased a xbox wireless controler (latest model) and whant to use the controller on my windows 10 pc. My pc does not find the controller. Other bluetooth devices connect well to this pc.

    The same result with two other windows 10 pcs.

    The controller otself works fine when connected via usb cable.

    Any clues?

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Xbox one controller pc

    Hi,

    There are three ways to connect an Xbox One Wireless controller to a Windows 10 PC. You may connect it via USB, Xbox Wireless (Built-in or with Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows), or Bluetooth connection. If your device doesn't have Bluetooth capability
    and you don't want to connect it via USB, the option you can use is via Xbox Wireless built-in or Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows. Here are the steps:

    1. On your PC, go to Settings > Devices.
    2. Choose Add Bluetooth or other device.
    3. Select Everything else.
    4. Select Xbox Wireless Controller.
    5. Click Done.
    If your device doesn't have Xbox Wireless built-in, you'll need to get an Xbox Wireless Adapter. You may purchase it through online Microsoft Store. Refer to this link for more information:

    Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows


    Refer to this
    link
    for the steps on how to set up the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows.

    Let us know if you have other questions. We'd be glad to further assist you.

  3. Does the newer controller (with Bluetooth support) still be able to use the wireless receiver?

    Yes, the wireless adapter works and is probably the preferred way to use the controller. Xbox One controllers connected to windows 10 PC's via Bluetooth cause a noticeable performance drop in games. Connect with a wire or the wireless adapter and the performance
    hit is not present. Funny thing is no other Bluetooth controller causes a performance drop in games. It is something specific to the Xbox One controller.

    Can the X Box One Wireless Controller with Bluetooth also be used with the X Box One Wireless Adapter for Windows 10?

    Hi Beau,

    Thank you for coming to the Xbox forums, I'd be happy to answer that.

    The Xbox One Wireless controller with Bluetooth can be connected to a Windows 10 PC with a USB cable, Bluetooth, or with the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10, so yes, it can be connected via the adapter. The Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 is not
    compatible with an Xbox 360 controller and will need the Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows. I'll provide the support articles with this information:


    I hope this helps!

    Elite Series 2

    Das bezieht sich auf die Nutzung des Elite 2 Controllers mit Windows 7/8.1 Betriebssystemen.

    Eine Liste der nicht unterstützten Funktionen für Android und Windows 7/8.1 findest Du auf dieser Seite:

    https://support.xbox.com/xbox-on-wi...ller-differences-on-windows-operating-systems

    Beispielsweise kannst Du über den Xbox Wireless Adapter für Windows 10 oder via Bluetooth den Controller drahtlos mit Windows 10 Verbinden. Bei Windows 7/8.1 wird diese Art der drahtlosen Verbindung "nicht unterstützt".

    Ebenso wird angeschlossenes Controllerzubehör (z.B. das Chatpad) nicht über eine Bluetooth Verbindung unterstützt. Über USB oder Xbox Wireless Adapter jedoch schon.

    Über den Wireless Adapter und USB Verbindung kannst Du den Game Sound an den Controller und ein dort angeschlossenes Headset übertragen. Über Bluetooth kannst Du nur Sprach Chat an das Controller Headset bekommen. Und unter Windows 7/8.1 geht generell kein
    Game Sound über den Controller.

    [Translation]

    The "not supported" functions are in regards to Windows 7/8.1 and Android.

    A list of what is or is not supported is on this website:

    https://support.xbox.com/xbox-on-wi...ller-differences-on-windows-operating-systems

    For example, you can connect the Elite 2 Controller wireless via Bluetooth or Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 only on Windows 10. For Windows 7/8.1 that type of wireless connection is not supported.

    Additionally connected controller accessories (e.g. the Chatpad) are not supported via Bluetooth. But are supported via Xbox Wireless Adapter.

    You can listen to game sound through a headset connected to the controller only via USB or Xbox Wireless Adapter. But via Bluetooth only voice chat is supported. And on Windows 7/8.1 game sound isn't possible at all through the controller.
