    Xbox remote install from Game Pass app


    I've used the Xbox Game Pass app for a while now (about a year) and have been able to remotely install games via that feature in the app until just recently. It stopped working a few days ago. When I try (same way it worked before), it gives me an error message that says, "Uh oh, something went wrong". I have tried every suggestion I have found by searching online. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app on my phone. Yes, I have plenty of space on my Xbox (over 200GB free for a 2 GB game). I have enabled all the correct settings both on my Xbox console and on my phone/Game Pass app. Nothing works. There is an Xbox Game Pass quest to install apps remotely and I cannot complete it because of this issue.

    :)

    Xbox app does not detect already installed games via the game pass

    Hi there if you are wanting to remote install games on the game pass download the game pass app as the xbox app does not do this. As for it not loading things there are known connection issues that will hopefully resolved soon. Hope you are safe and well
    in these trying times.

    Unable to remote install games on Xbox Series X from the Microsoft Store or from Game Pass mobile app

    Hi,

    Thank you for affirming, it's not just me.

    Same deal. I upgraded from the original Xbox One to a Series X. I could manage games from both the Xbox app and Game Pass app to my original Xbox One. I put my Series X into service on 1/28/21. Apparently ,from what I have seen there must have been app updates to the Game Pass app.

    Now as you said, I cannot manage or install Game Pass apps remotely from the Game Pass app to the Series X. However, it looks like the Xbox App can manage the Series X.

    I also factory reset the original Xbox One and packed it up. I also removed my original Xbox One from the Devices tab on my account.microsoft.com page and made sure my Series X was set as my home xbox.

    Pretty confident that this is not me nor you.

    Figured I would mention I have the same issue and hope they fix it soon.

    For what it is worth, you can filter games in the Xbox app on your phone to show Game Pass games along with optimized for SeriesX|S and platform as Xbox One. Then you can at least see the Game Pass games in the Xbox app and remote install them that way as a work around.

    Can you try power cycling your console? Hold power button on your Xbox for 10 seconds, then wait for it to switch off. Then remove the power cable from back. Wait another 10 seconds. Connect the cable back and start your console and try again.

    Also, did you try the Xbox game pass app from your phone and tried to remotely install games? Also, you can try from xbox.com, login with your account and try to install game remotely from there.
