On Xbox 360 and PS4 I can use my keyboard for entering passwords and navigating the dashboard. (Xbox 360 only works with plain USB keyboards, as I found out.) I have been unable to make my keyboards work with the Xbox One yet. What do I need to do?

  • I do vaguely remember so... I think... I used it for my account details once

  • USB keyboard support was added in an update on February 11, 2014. This should allow you to use any generic USB keyboard in the dashboard. I guess you should try some different keyboards or check that the USB port on your Xbox is working. Commented Apr 29, 2015 at 13:19
