Controller Syncing - Xbox One

Pairing your controller

1. Power on your Xbox One console.

2. Turn on your controller by pressing and holding the Xbox button until the controller turns on. The Xbox button will pulse, indicating it’s not yet connected to a controller. If the Xbox button is lit solid, then the controller is already connected.

3. Press and release the connect button on the console.

4. Within 20 seconds, press and release the connect button on the controller. The controller’s Xbox button will quickly flash a few times, indicating that it’s searching for the console. It then switches to a solid light when connected.

Your controller is now connected to your console. Repeat this procedure for every extra controller you want to add.
