If your Xbox One controller is damaged or you want to link two controllers for multiplayer, you’ve come to the correct spot. This article explains how to connect a wired or wireless Xbox 360 controller to an Xbox one and play split-screen games with it.
Can you use an Xbox 360 controller on Xbox one?
The Xbox One controller doesn’t work with the Xbox 360 wireless receiver, so you can’t use it natively, but you can connect if you have a Windows 10 laptop or desktop and an Xbox One or Xbox One S console wired and wireless Xbox 360 controllers to your system.
Step 1: Connect your Xbox One to your laptop or desktop (if already linked, skip to step 2). You must set up the Xbox streaming app on your Windows 10 computer. There are three methods for connecting your Xbox to your computer.
- With an HDMI cable (requires an HDMI input port on your computer)
- With a USB capture card
- With wifi or ethernet connection
The third technique is the best option. To link your system using wifi:
- Go to your computer and download and install the Xbox app.
- After it’s downloaded, sign in to your Xbox account and turn on your Xbox One.
- On the left vertical bar of icons, click “Connection” for both devices to connect.
Note: Check whether your Xbox One and computer are on the same network.
Step 2: Connect your Xbox 360 controller to your computer.
Connect the controller to the computer’s USB port. If you have a wireless Xbox 360 controller, attach your wireless receiver. Some individuals may require drivers to connect a wireless controller; if this is the case, check out Using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller on a PC.
Step 3: Click the Broadcast button.
Click the Cast button, then follow the on-screen directions; If you’ve already set up streaming, you may now begin to watch.
Tips for low input lag
- Use an ethernet connection.
- Lower the streaming quality settings on your computer.
