How to set up your Xbox Series

Step 1: Preparing space for the console

Put your console on a stable, well-ventilated, relatively cool surface. Make sure your console is away from a direct heat source, it’s not in an enclosed cabinet, the vents are not blocked. We recommend 4 to 6 inches clearance on all sides.

Step 2: Connect power and TV

Then, connect your console to power and to your TV. Make sure you use the High Speed or Ultra High-Speed HDMI cable that came with your console to guarantee image performance and quality.

Step 3: Power up the console

Now, you need to press the Xbox button to power on your console.

Step 4: Open the Xbox app

When prompted, open the Xbox app on your mobile device to complete the setup. If you don’t have the app, you can download it from the Google Play or Apple App Stores, or just set up your console by following the on-screen instructions.

Step 5: Use the Xbox app to complete setup

In the app, select Set up a console. If you don’t see this option, select the console icon. Then select Set up a console. Select Set up a new console. Enter the code shown on your TV screen, then select Connect to console. Follow the instructions in the Xbox app to verify or update your language and location. Connect to WiFi. Update your console. Sign in. And customize your settings. Your console is set up!

Step 6: Connect your controller

Now connect the controller. Press the pair buttons on both the controller and the console. They’re located here on the Xbox Series X. And here on the Xbox Series S.

Pro tip: Don’t forget the batteries. That’s it! Your Xbox is ready to play.
