Using Xbox on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install Xbox on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR

Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.

    I love my Xbox oneX, I love playing my games. I don’t like all the hacks out there, I’m just a regular player. If I win, I win. If I lose, I lose, as long as there aren’t any cheat codes or hacks, I’m good with that. One thing I don’t understand with this hole thing is, when I’m playing call of duty and someone is cheating, “or I think they are cheating). I’ll try and leave the game and start up another game somewhere els, but it keeps putting me in the same room, with the same people. How is it, with all the millions of people playing all over the world, you have to keep putting me in the same game room that I just left. Come one, you should have an algorithm to fix that! There should be no way, that I leave a room and get put into the same room 8 times later. It just happened to me again today. I rebooted the systems to see if that helps, but that is one thing that I am sick and tired of. Another thing, when you leave a game, every now and then, the game ask you if you are happy in the last game you played. Maybe you should not start it up highlighting yes already, so when you accidentally hit the button, because your mad, it hits the yes, when you were already not happy, which is why you left the game in the first place. Could you guys could look into that. Thank you and have a good day.
  • Pros and cons of Xbox one

    By Gspiegs
    Here’s a few cons of having Xbox one basically the call duty points are geared so that if anything goes wrong and you don’t receive the points when you buy them Xbox customer service tells you not our problem deal with the other company even though they take your money another con they made an Xbox one acts recently that’s going to be available for sale soon and that is basically so you can use it with a 4K TV and I think if I understand correctly it has a faster processorWhich I thought the Xbox one was going to kind of cover and don’t get me wrong there’s tons of pros I can’t even begin to list all them I’ll always have an Xbox Consoland I’ll always recommend it To friends family anyone because it is legitimately the best gaming console there is and that’s not my opinion That’s just a known fact it’s always been that way I mean PlayStation tries to catch up and I try hard but it’ll always come down to Xbox being the ultimate gaming experience once again not my opinion it’s an actual fact well I guess it’s like a love hate relationship with you guys and Xbox because you do all me quite a bit of money for a lost cod points but I can forget that I guess
  • Definitely top 10 worst apps in the App Store.

    By Chiefcj
    This app is terrible. Let me start by saying I have a brand new iPhone 8 Plus just so no one can say maybe your phone is having issues. But anyways whenever you open the app and join a party and say if you try to multitask on your iPhone and go into an additional app while you’re in the party you’ll have a red Xbox bar at the top of your screen showing your still in the party but maybe after 30 seconds the app closes out and you’ll have to go back in and join the party again or say if you’re phone locks while you’re in a party after maybe 30 seconds you will be kicked out of the app and have to load it back up and try to get back in your party causing you to have to stay in the app with the app always being on your screen at all times for you to continue being in the party. This makes it to where basically you can’t use your phone for anything but the Xbox app. And I recommend keeping your phone on the charger because this app drains the life out of your phone. Microsoft or Xbox or whoever you have an addiction problem that you continue to turn a blind eye to, and wonder why PlayStation continue to beat you in sales.
  • Does some things reliably; some things rarely.

    By PolarSpectram
    You can always see who’s online from your friends list, and what they’re playing. Messaging works well too. However; the ONE THING the app is absolutely advantageous over a controller for accessing your console with - does not work consistently. The on screen keyboard, lets you type quickly on your phone - much faster than using a controller. When it works, this feature is extremely convenient, letting you input text to your Xbox or games in time spans you never could without the app. But good freakn’ luck getting the keyboard on the app to come up when you have an on-screen keyboard on your console. It’ll work sometimes, and other times you can pull up the keyboard on your Xbox again and again and again - to have the app do nothing. Which, needless to say - is very frustrating. To have such a convenient feature work intermittently and be completely unusable at other times is maddening. If that singular function worked reliably, I would say this is a magnificent app. But right now; it just doesn’t.
  • Works as well as it should

    By Metthroid
    The app offers a lot of useful capabilities that I find very useful in my play. Everything works well enough that I have little problems when utilizing its functions. Some bugs are present, but everything has its kinks. These bugs are often fixed by simply restarting the app, or in a few cases restarting the Xbox it’s linked to. Anyone that plays Xbox should probably have this app, seeing as it’s both free and rather useful. The ability to see and respond to messages, even if you aren’t on your Xbox is a great ability. The ability to tell which friends are online by going into the app or having it send you a notification of when they get online is also a favorite of mine. And the ability to type and copy & paste with your phone makes sending messages and inputting commands a breeze. I recommend this to any Xbox user, there’s really no reason to not have it as far as I know. Great work, Microsoft.
  • Xbox app is running slow on the fifth GEN itouch and it crashes sometimes

    By RyosukeKudosachi
    I have no idea what's going on but these recent updates is slowing down Xbox app on 5th gen itouch it's really unresponsive and it takes more than six seconds every time I tap anything within the app and if I press the screen to many times it will crash you really need to fix these issues it's not properly optimized for the fifth generation iTouch even the older version on Itouch 4 is a lot more responsive everywhere I tap it will load quickly this is truly unacceptable you can do much better than this Microsoft this app used to be so great until you removed the ability to control Internet explorer when it was upgraded to Microsoft edge I'm very disappointed but overall it works I mostly use it for texting and when I am away from my Xbox one I can still chat with my friends and family members through party chat which is by far my favorite feature on Xbox app if you can fix these problems I have I guarantee I will give you four stars again😉👍
  • Convenient - Update

    By Mac Kraft
    I love this app! It has all the essentials for an on the go gamer. There's only one small issue that I've noticed and compared to the rest of the amazing features, it's a relatively small gripe. Nonetheless, the messaging system within the app works wonderfully but it also contains the only thing that bugs me. It's very time consuming to cleanup or delete old messages. Having to slide left and delete them all individually takes quite a while if you receive messages frequently. Also the difference in text color between a new message and a message marked as "read" is so subtle that it becomes difficult to locate unread messages when trying to cleanup notifications. My suggestions: Install a feature that will let the user select multiple messages at a time and delete them or mark as read. Change the color of the font on new messages and read messages to something more drastic. Perhaps a green text for new messages and white text for read messages. Overall, as I stated in the beginning, I love this app! And I believe updating the messaging system will only increase my enjoyment and ease of use for everyone. Cheers! PS - I pre-installed Destiny 2 with this app and I'm waiting patiently to regain my Light when the clock hits midnight! Xbox, the best place to play Destiny 2 hands down! Console exclusives don't hold a candle to our community. Find me in the EDZ, guardians. Gamer tag: Surelok
  • Been using this for a year and still glitched

    By Diagonalley
    I’ve done reviews before and the same people issues are there. Messages from friends come up on my screen with the complete message for all to see. Doesn’t matter if it’s locked or not. So have have to set my phone notifications to not preview at all which therefore requires me to open up the app every time a I a generalized “Xbox notification” on my iPhone. Why can it go back to beeping with a discreet “ you gave a message from John Doe gamer tag”? That was the best way but it’s been a year. Next the app starts to randomly show all my friends offline whenever it wants to when I know do a fact they are on the app. Also we use to have time stamps for when a message came through the app now I have no idea when it was sent if I don’t hear the first and only beep. They do a lot of updates and such but I just want basic message functioning cuz that my main reason for using the app.
  • Opinion and a Thankful person.

    By IIx2IM1NiK4NxII
    Great app maybe can you guys add a feature with Google Chromecast so I can show my friend my recorded game play on big screen from my iPhone Xbox App ! But if you can’t I understand I lf you can from The Xbox app I understand if not I even understand . I just though if that ti Day my opinion don’t count much but today my nephew came over and i didn’t want to connect my Xbox to my tV room screen because then I’ll Have to move it but I did though how about if the Xbox app had an option where I can send my recorded plays to my to without my Xbox that’s so cool To have just because I sniped 4 people back to back on fortnite I want to show off lol but anyway Xbox app as is its awesome that’s for such engaging experience couldn’t or have not not met such experiences with a console ! Thank you for being first to me and best !
  • Ups and downs

    By Yeah, I'm that guy
    This app is a great companion to the Xbox allowing you to type on your Xbox from your phone, but some drawbacks to that is it doesnt always stay connected to the Xbox for some reason. Also something is lost to see updated is making it a lot easier to look at screenshots and video as that either takes forever to load or never loads at all. I’d like to be able to clean up my storage of my clips and screenshots so I can upload more stuff from my Xbox and this app would be a great place to be able to do that. Also as another reviewer wrote, it doesn’t always sync messages completely so that the app is as updated as the Xbox, even when the Xbox is on and connnected to the app, which I find very strange. But other than that I like the rest of the functionality. Hopefully this will get read by the developers and these issues can get updated.
