Using the USB ports on your Xbox One console

There are three USB 3.0 ports on the Xbox One console for easy access: two on the rear of the console and one either on the front (Xbox One S console) or the left side (original Xbox One console).

Supported accessories

Supported accessories include:

  • Xbox One Play & Charge Kit
  • Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2 for Xbox One
  • Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel, Ferrari 458 Italia Edition
  • Wired USB keyboards

More Xbox One USB accessories are coming soon. See Xbox One accessories for more information.

External storage

If you have a USB 3.0 external drive that has a capacity of 256 GB or more, you can use it to store games and apps. Or, you can use the drive to store media.

If you have a USB drive that doesn’t meet these requirements, you can still use it to store media.

See How to manage storage on Xbox One for more information.

Kinect ports

If you're using an original Xbox One console, there's a unique dedicated port on your console for you to plug the Kinect sensor directly in to the back of the console.

If you have an Xbox One S console, a Kinect adapter is needed. The Kinect adapter plugs in to the back-left USB port on the console. For details, see How to use an Xbox One Kinect Sensor with an Xbox One S console.
