Unfortunately, Microsoft’s Xbox One lacks Bluetooth support, meaning it has no built-in way to pair Apple AirPods to an Xbox console. It’s also impossible to connect AirPods to the Xbox One controller headphone jack.
While you technically can’t connect AirPods to an Xbox One console or controller, you can still use them during an Xbox One gaming session. By using the official Xbox app on iOS or Android, AirPods can still come in handy for chatting with friends in an Xbox Party and for voice chat within popular video games like Fortnite.
Traditional wired headphones or earphones can still connect to the Xbox One controller headphone jack.
