    Xbox One Controller is not connecting to windows 10 PC via bluetooth


    So recently I purchased an Xbox one controller (black) from Amazon for playing games on my windows 10 PC but I am
    unable to make them connect in a wireless manner . Connecting via USB is fine. So naturally I did research and found out that firmware on controller may not be updated but since i don't own an Xbox console itself I found the alternative to
    update the firmware via Xbox app accessories and it says the controller is updated and
    firmware version is 3.1.1221.0 . I am trying to connect it with my
    USB Bluetooth (v2.0) and the problem is that it keeps asking for a pin when I try them to connect . After more surfing i found out that my Bluetooth version is maybe too old and Xbox one controller requires at least BT 4.0+ to connect
    . Now I am not willing to spend more money on Xbox wireless adapter(almost as expensive as a new controller) and looking for
    a way to connect it anyways , if it is possible . If not then please confirm is something else the problem or it is really the old BT dongle.

    :)

    xbox one controller for pc, adapter or bluetooth?

    Hey GiddyCosine4817!

    As Geth mentioned, Bluetooth connection to a Windows 10 device will work just fine for Xbox One controllers, depending on the model of the controller. Certain older Xbox One controllers do not support Bluetooth connections.

    If you need help determining if your controller can connect via Bluetooth, check out the info under "Option 3" in our guide for

    Problem with my controler Xbox one Bluetooth

    Hello Cerfvoyage4344,

    If you haven't already done so, may I suggest following up with "Connect and troubleshoot Bluetooth on your
    Xbox One Wireless Controller
    " . If you continue to have a problem connecting via Bluetooth, I would be curios if the controller works with your PC using the USB port, "How
    to connect an Xbox One Wireless Controller to a Windows PC
    " . Let us know if this helps.

    Does the Xbox One S console have Bluetooth Capability? I.E Bluetooth Headsets

    There is no Bluetooth radio component in the Xbox One S console itself.

    The controllers connect to the Xbox One S the same way the controllers connect to the original Xbox One: proprietary RF. You could technically connect an Xbox One S controller to an original Xbox One, and an original Xbox controller to the Xbox One S.

    The Bluetooth functionality in the new Xbox One S controller is specifically made for connecting the controller to a Windows 10 PC with the "Anniversary" update, which has the drivers needed for the controller when connected via Bluetooth.
