Title: Unleash the Potential of Your Xbox One Console: Access Microsoft Teams with Ease
Title: Using Xbox as a Solution for Homeschooling
Throughout the pandemic, students have been forced to adapt to remote learning. It has become a challenge for those who do not have access to a PC or laptop to access school work on Microsoft Teams/Office 365. However, did you know that you can access Teams using the built-in browser on your Xbox games console? In this article, we will guide you through the steps to help your child get "online" and logged into Teams so they can continue their education safely from home.
Accessing Microsoft Teams on Xbox One using Microsoft Edge browser:
- If you own an Xbox One console, you can access Microsoft Teams through the Microsoft Edge browser. Follow these simple steps to get started:
1. Open the Edge browser on your Xbox One console. If the icon is not shown on the home page tiles, go to "My Games and Apps" > "Apps" > "Edge" (it is a blue icon with a white "e"). The edge browser is preinstalled on the Xbox, so there is no need to install it. Note that the Edge browser can be a little temperamental sometimes, but it's worth sticking with it.
2. Open the Microsoft portal by pressing Y to "quick navigate" to the address bar. Enter the following website address into the address bar – portal.office.com. If you are prompted to search in the store, select "No."
3. Log in to the portal with the credentials provided for your child. Click the dialog box for the login – you can then use the on-screen keyboard or attach a USB keyboard. The sign-in name is usually in the format of @.sch.uk. Then press "Next."
4. Enter your child's email address/account username and press "Next."
5. Enter their password and press "Sign in." If you have lost/forgotten your password, you will need to reach out to your school's admin team or your child's teacher to have it reset.
Using Teams/Office 365:
Once you have successfully signed in, you will need the 365 home screen. You can navigate around the page using the controller (details below). The key icons here are the Email/Outlook app and Team. Use the cursor to select the app.
1. When you click to open a new "app" from 365, it will open in a new tab.
2. The Teams portal page. From this, you can open your class team, access assignments, and the calendar.
Xbox Edge Navigation Controls for the Xbox controller:
- Navigating the page without a mouse can be a little confusing at first but becomes much easier with practice. The controls are as below:
1. Left Thumb Stick: Move the mouse cursor.
2. Right Thumb Stick: Page scroll.
3. A: Cursor Click.
4. B: Back.
5. Y: Quick navigate to the address bar.
6. X: Not used.
7. Menu/Burger Button: Right cursor click – Open in a new tab, etc.
8. View Button: Enter/Leave full-screen mode.
9. D Pad up and down: Page Scroll.
10. Left Trigger: Zoom out.
11. Right Trigger: Zoom in.
Keyboard and Mouse Support in the Edge Browser:
Please note that while the Xbox does support a keyboard, the Edge web browser does not have mouse support. We would recommend purchasing a cheap USB keyboard from Amazon, as it will greatly improve the user experience. A USB keyboard can be purchased for as little as £7 with free Prime delivery from Amazon.
