How To Download Google Chrome On Xbox

Although the Xbox has a built-in web browser, Microsoft Edge, some individuals may prefer using Google Chrome due to its easy-to-navigate interface and ability to synchronize across multiple devices. However, Google Chrome is not currently available in the Xbox app store. Fortunately, there is a workaround to access it by utilizing the developer mode. The following blog post provides a detailed, step-by-step guide on how to download Google Chrome on Xbox.

Enable Developer Mode

To install Google Chrome on Xbox, you first need to enable the developer mode. Here’s how:

  • Download the Dev Mode Activation app from the Xbox store.
  • Launch the app and follow the instructions to activate Developer Mode on your Xbox.

Note: Activating developer mode will remove all of your games and apps, so make sure to back up any data you want to keep.

Installing Google Chrome

Once in developer mode, you will need to install Google Chrome manually. Follow these steps:

  • On your computer, download the Google Chrome installation file.
  • Open the Xbox Device Portal on your computer. You can do this by entering the IP address of your Xbox into your computer’s web browser. The IP address can be found in the Dev Mode Activation app on your Xbox.
  • Once you are in the Xbox Device Portal, click on My games & apps.
  • Under Apps, click on Add.
  • Select the Google Chrome installation file you downloaded earlier and click Start.
