You’ve just upgraded to the new Xbox One and are feeling pretty good about yourself, but when you get your Bluetooth speaker out of its box and try to connect it, you’re left staring at the Xbox, wondering what to do next. It is almost unable to connect.
Well, no need to get panic! Here’s how to connect your Bluetooth speaker to the Xbox One console, so you can start enjoying all the cool new features of the system without missing any of your favorite music and movies.
What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows devices to connect with one another without having to be physically close to one another. The range of the signal is usually between 10 and 30 feet, depending on the obstructions in the way and other factors. There are many advantages to this technology because it does not require physical contact between two devices.
For example, you can charge your phone wirelessly by placing it near a Bluetooth-enabled charging mat or by pairing it with a Bluetooth-enabled charging case. You can also use Bluetooth speakers in various settings without having to worry about cords getting in the way, such as at outdoor concerts or while tailgating at a football game.
What does it mean for me and my speakers?
If you have a Bluetooth-enabled speaker and an Xbox One, it’s easy to stream music from the console wirelessly. You can connect a Bluetooth-enabled device like a smartphone or tablet to the Xbox One as well. Using the new Kinect voice commands, you can simply say Xbox, volume up and the volume will increase on all connected speakers.
This is really handy when you’re playing video games in the same room as someone else who might be watching TV or working on their laptop and don’t want their sound intruding on your immersive gaming experience.
Can I use a wireless speaker with Xbox One?
Wireless speakers can be used with an Xbox One. In order for a wireless speaker to work with the console, the speaker must have a 3.5mm audio input and be able to support A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile).
For example, if you are using a Chromecast, it will not work with the Xbox One because it does not support this profile. The Chromecast only supports streaming audio from mobile devices or computers.
What kind of audio cable do I need?
You’ll need a 3.5mm stereo audio cable for connecting your Bluetooth device to the Xbox One. These cables are available in most electronics stores and some big box retailers. They’re usually not expensive, so you might want to pick up a couple since they can be used for other devices as well.
The 3.5mm connector is a standard size that’s popular on many different types of hardware and it’s also known as mini-jack or common audio.
This is the type of connection you’ll find on most headphones, earbuds, and many MP3 players, just to name a few examples. If you have any of those accessories handy, they can be used as a substitute if needed while you’re getting the suitable cable.
