To do this, press the Pair button on your console and your control. You can use your Bluetooth connection to connect your controller to your mobile device to cloud-game or remotely control your console.
Bluetooth does not support attachments such as chat pads, headsets, and the Xbox Stereo Headset Adapter.
It is recommended that you only have one Bluetooth controller. Although it is possible to connect more than one Bluetooth controller, performance will vary depending on the device.
If You Have An Older Xbox One Wireless Controller
The Xbox wireless adapter is required if you don’t have one of the Bluetooth-equipped Xbox controllers or if you have a computer without Bluetooth. This is a Microsoft proprietary dongle that connects to the control via a dedicated wireless connection.
Once you have an adapter, simply plug it into a USB port on your Windows laptop/desktop and press the pairing button to turn the light on.
You can now switch on your Xbox controller using the central home button. Next, press and hold on to the pairing button at the top edge until the big ‘X” starts flashing.
