How To Connect Xbox To Google Home

Google Home, a series of smart speakers developed by Google, has been making our homes smarter and our lives easier. Meanwhile, Xbox, Microsoft’s video game brand, provides us with great entertainment. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could control our Xbox using just our voice through Google Home? Let’s go through the steps to make this happen.

Step 1: Set up your Google Home device

First, ensure your Google Home device is set up and connected to your WiFi network. Download the Google Home app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and follow the step-by-step instructions within the app to set it up.

Step 2: Download the Google Assistant app

You will need the Google Assistant app on your smartphone to link your Xbox to Google Home. Download it from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Step 3: Sign in to your Xbox

Sign in to the Microsoft account on your Xbox. Keep in mind that this should be the same account that you will use when linking your Xbox to Google Home.

Step 4: Link your Xbox to Google Home

Open the Google Home app on your smartphone. Tap the ‘+’ icon at the top left corner and select Set up device. Then tap on Have something already set up?. Search for ‘Xbox’ and select Xbox from the results. Sign in to your Microsoft account and follow the prompts to link your Xbox to Google Home.

Step 5: Set up Google Home voice commands for Xbox

Once your Xbox is linked to Google Home, you can set up voice commands. You can say, “Hey Google, play Halo on Xbox” or “Hey Google, turn off Xbox”. You can customize these voice commands based on your preferences.


With Google Home and Xbox linked, you can enjoy a hands-free gaming experience. Remember, you can always unlink your Xbox from Google Home in the Google Home app if you ever need to.
