  1. Xbox one randomly won’t connect to Xbox console companion


    So I normally play Xbox on my hp laptop, as my significant other watches tv. I’ll play for weeks with no problem then out of nowhere when I turn on my Xbox and start the app on my lap top the app doesn’t register my Xbox as on and only shows the “turn on console” button. I try to forget and reconnect the console but it “does not show up on my network”. When I type in the ip address it still does not connect. So I stop playing for a few days, even weeks trying it periodically. Then one day it connects and is back to normal, until the process inevitably repeats. Is this normal? Is there a better quicker fix? I have also tried restarting both devices, also while the Xbox does not connect to my laptop it will still connect and be able to play on my phone 100% of the time it works on my phone. Thank you for reading, hope to hear back soon.

    One XBox 2 kids

    I would try the Xbox Companion. As long as everyone uses his own account it should not mess up the other kids party. Please inform us if it won´t work through the App.

    Gamer Tag transfer.

    No, this won´t work.

    The Xbox One doesn´t support external HDD´s yet. You have to join Xbox Live with your gamertag, after that you can download your gamertag on the Xbox One. Can´t you connect your Xbox 360 with a wire to your router? If not you can use a Xbox 360 of a friend
    with an internet connection.

    Smart Glass second screen and Android

    Hello @Phrost510. 2nd screen companions on Android are available for a number of Xbox One games. Can you verify that your Xbox One Smartglass app is connected to your Xbox One console? If you tap on the "Connect" button in the top right of the app, you
    should see your Xbox One console listed there (and in green if connected). Once you are connected then in addition to being able to launch games/apps and navigate the console from SmartGlass, you will see 2nd screen companions available for a number of games
    including Dead Rising 3. You can view more information in the Xbox One SmartGlass FAQ here:

    XBOX NEXT

    I think some day it will all be about Streams: we won´t have discs anymore. But don´t know if that will already happen with the next Xbox. I still think the internet connections of most people won´t work out for that yet.

    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.
