Playing games on your TV via your Xbox is an immersive experience. But if there is only one TV in your house, then a lot of precious gaming time is lost. Thankfully, with the update to the Xbox app, you can now play your Xbox games on your iPhone. The ability to do this on your Android phone came in late 2019 and it is now available for the iPhone via the Xbox App. 



Streaming games from your Xbox to your iPhone

To stream games from your Xbox to your iPhone, you need to ensure the following. 

  • Ensure your iPhone is on iOS version 10 or greater and supports Bluetooth version 4.0+
  • Game streaming will work on the Xbox One consoles and the upcoming Series S/X.
  • You will also need an Xbox One Bluetooth controller. 
  • Most importantly, you will need 5GHz Wi-Fi or mobile data connection with 10 Mbps down. 

You can follow the step by step guide on the app to enable the feature. Note that the Xbox will check your network infrastructure to let you know if remote play will work or not. In our case, it didn’t. You can check out the image below.
