How do I use 2 controllers to play local multiplayer via remote play?



  • Recently, I have been testing out the new remote play feature on my phone, so I can play anywhere I want.

    I connected my two Xbox controllers to my phone via Bluetooth, and they are shown as separate connections. However, when I play Mortal Kombat 11 both controllers control the same player, where when playing directly through the Xbox console, each controller controls their own respective player.

    How do I use 2 controllers to play local multiplayer via remote play?



  • Unfortunately, the answer is simply that you can't. Xbox Play Anywhere is designed to allow a single person to play directly from their phone, and does not support additional players, even when the game normally would when playing it directly from the console. This has been confirmed by Microsoft, themselves.

    Can a friend connect their controller to my mobile device to play local co-op with me?

    No, remote play supports only one connection at a time.
