Use an Xbox 360 controller on an Xbox One

To connect an Xbox 360 controller to an Xbox One, there are adapters. However, these adapters cost as much as a new controller.

Luckily for us, there is a completely free technique to do this without an adapter. For this you need a wired Xbox 360 controller, a computer, and a few minutes. You just need to follow the following steps:

First stage

Search for the "Xbox Console Companion" application on the Microsoft Store

You have to go to the Microsoft Store and install the application "Xbox console companion“.

Second step

After starting the application, you must log in to the Microsoft account that you use on your console.

Third step

Home page of the Companion application of the Xbox console, The Connection button is framed in red
Add Device window, Connect to Xbox One button is framed in red

Once on the home page of the application, click on “Login” at the bottom left of the screen. Then, in the “Add device” window, click on “Connect” to choose your console. All you have to do is wait a few seconds for the connection.

Step four

In the Companion app on the Xbox console, on the Connection page, the Stream button is framed in red

Connect your controller to your computer via the USB port. On the app, click on “Stream”. A login page with your console will appear. Wait a few seconds.

On the Console Companion app, page waiting to connect to your console

Last step

Console home page, you can use your gamepad

The connection is now complete. On your computer, you see the same as on your Xbox One. Now you can use the controller on your console.
