  1. XBox Companion App Not Connecting to XBox


    I am trying to connect my computer to my XBox via the XBox companion app on my computer. I followed the instructions given online (modifying the settings on my XBox Settings > Preferences > Xbox app connectivity > "Allow connections from any device" and
    "Allow game streaming to other devices") and then tried to connect over the app but I received the following message: "We couldn't connect to your console. Make sure the console is still on and connected to the same network as this device." The console is
    most definitely still on and both the Xbox and the PC are wired into the same router, so they are physically connected to the same network. The troubleshooting page for this issue simply suggests restarting both devices, which I did to no avail. Has anyone
    else had this problem? And what can I do to fix it? Thanks!

    :)

    I can't add my Xbox 360 to the Xbox app

    Yeah, Phoenix_Reins is correct with this, the Xbox console companion app only works with the Xbox One. There is no app that connects to the Xbox 360.

    Xbox Console Companion won't connect to Facebook

    I had the same issue, but found a way around it.

    I unlinked Facebook completely on the Xbox companion app on my PC.

    I then downloaded the Xbox app onto my phone and connected it using the phone app. it connected fine and the Xbox companion app on my pc then updated with my Facebook linked to it with no further problems. works fine now

    I can't play on pc

    Are you able to sign in on the Xbox Console Companion App or the Xbox (Beta) app? The Console Companion app has a section under Settings > Network (in the app) that will let you know the network status and if there are any issues connecting to Xbox Live.
    Can you let us know what it says in there?

    Apparently this link no longer exists and has been removed.

    In a previous post, there was a work around posted for this problem
