Xbox One is the eighth-generation video game console created by Microsoft in 2013. It gained positive feedback because of its refined controller, multimedia features, and voice-operated navigation system. This offers different gameplay of various genre and supports 4K video playback. However, it does not support all formats and some of the content can be viewed on your monitor. For this reason, you can connect your smartphone to the console and play the content on the device.
