Use an Xbox 360 controller on an Xbox One

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

I will show you a free technique to do this without an adapter. For this you need an Xbox 360 wired controller and a computer.

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 need to sign in to the Microsoft account that you use on your Xbox One.

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 Connection at the bottom left of the screen. Then, in the "Add a device" window, click "Connect" to choose your Xbox One. It is then enough to wait a few seconds for the connection time.

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 application, click on "Flux". An Xbox One sign-in page will appear. Wait a few seconds.

On the Xbox Console Companion app, the Xbox One Connection Waiting Page

Last step

Xbox One home page. You can use the Xbox 360 controller on an Xbox One.

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