Join Doug Winnie for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Up and Running with Xbox One.
- Xbox One is designed for anyone to use so you don't really need to know anything particular before you get started with this course. That being said, having experience with computers and working with the internet is good background information for you when you work with the Xbox One since you'll be connecting it to the internet and working with apps similar to those that are on tablets or computers. In addition, when you work with the Xbox you'll need to create a Microsoft account. If you have an existing Xbox Live, Outlook.com, or Office 365 account, you already have a Microsoft account.
So be sure to have your user name and password available to get your Xbox configured with your account. Now I'm going to assume that you haven't set up your Xbox One yet and we'll go through the installation and set up process starting from when you first unbox the system. If you already have it configured you can skip the installation chapter and continue with the later sections. So with all that covered let's go ahead and crack open the box and take a look at what's inside.
- Connecting and powering up the Xbox One
- Working with games and apps
- Signing up for Xbox Live
- Using Xbox with your TV
- Controlling Xbox One with your voice
- Messaging friends
- Using OneDrive with Xbox One
Skill Level Appropriate for all
