Is my Xbox One Wireless Controller compatible with my PC?

The Xbox One Wireless Controller can be used to play Xbox games on your PC when connected via Micro USB cable.

To use an Xbox One Wireless Controller with your PC, download and install one of the following driver packages:

Once the drivers are installed, connect the controller with a standard Micro USB cable. (The controller will vibrate when plugged into a USB port. If it doesn’t vibrate or respond, try a different Micro USB cable.)

Notes

  • To use your Xbox One controller with your console after using it with a PC, you must re-sync the controller to the console. You can do this by using the wireless sync button or a USB cable. For details, see Connect a wireless Xbox One controller to your console.
  • The Xbox One Wired Headset and Xbox One Stereo Headset are not currently compatible with a PC when connected through the Xbox One controller. If you have one of these connected to your PC and want audio using one of these headsets, you must connect directly to the PC using the 3.5mm port on your PC.
