How To Xbox Remote Play On Mac

As an Xbox player, sometimes you might want to continue your gameplay on a different device, like your Mac. With a feature known as Xbox Remote Play (previously known as Console Streaming), this is totally possible! You can mirror your Xbox One console to your Mac and play your favorite games. This blog will provide a step-by-step guide on how to set up Xbox Remote Play on your Mac.

What You Need

Before we start the process, there are a few things you will need to have:

  • Your Xbox One Console
  • A Mac Computer
  • A reliable Internet Connection
  • An Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription

Setting Up Xbox Remote Play on Mac

Once you have everything ready, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Connect Your Xbox One and Mac to the same network

This is crucial for the feature to work properly. Ensure that both your console and Mac are connected to the same network.

Step 2: Download the Xbox App on your Mac

The first thing you need to do is download the Xbox app on your Mac. Currently, Microsoft does not offer an official Xbox app for Mac, so you will need to use a third-party app like OneCast.

Step 3: Installation

Once you have downloaded OneCast, install it on your Mac by following the instructions provided.

Step 4: Set Up OneCast

After installation, launch OneCast. Click on Register Xbox One and follow the on-screen instructions to connect your Xbox One to the app.

Step 5: Connect your Xbox Controller to your Mac

Now connect your Xbox controller to your Mac. You can do this either via USB or Bluetooth.

Step 6: Time to Play!

Now that everything is set up, you can begin playing your Xbox games via your Mac. Simply start OneCast and you will see that your Xbox display is mirrored onto your Mac screen.


If you find that your Remote Play is lagging or unresponsive, try the following:

  • Ensure that both your Xbox and Mac are connected to a strong and stable internet connection.
  • Close any unnecessary applications or processes running on your Mac
  • Re-register your Xbox One on OneCast

And that’s it! Now you can enjoy your favorite Xbox games on your Mac. Happy gaming!
