Introduction

Since the launch of Xbox One, Microsoft has slowly but surely made the console more and more attractive to iOS users. One of the most recent additions is the ability to play music from your iPhone on your Xbox One console. Here’s how to do it:

First, make sure that your iPhone and Xbox One are on the same Wi-Fi network. Then, open the app on your iPhone and sign in with your Microsoft account. Once you’re signed in, select the “Devices” tab at the bottom of the screen and then select your Xbox One from the list of devices.

Once you’ve selected your Xbox One, you should see a list of options appear on the screen. Select “Music” and then choose the service that you want to use (iTunes, Spotify, or Pandora). You can also choose to play music from your personal collection by selecting “My Music.”

If you want to control playback from your iPhone, simply select the “Now Playing” tab at the bottom of the screen. From here, you can play/pause, skip tracks, and adjust volume. You can also add tracks to a playlist or queue up songs for upcoming playback.

What You Need

In order to play music on your Xbox One from your iPhone, you will need:

-An Xbox One console running the most recent system update.
-An iPhone running iOS 8 or higher.
-The free Xbox One SmartGlass app from the App Store.

If you meet all of the above requirements, you are ready to begin playing music on your Xbox One from your iPhone.

You’ll be asked to enter a code that will appear on your Xbox One screen; enter the code and then select Done.

If prompted, enter the passcode for your Xbox One.
