Xbox One Fitness not working with Smartglass app on Android or Xbox App on Windows 10

I launched up Xbox Fitness on the Xbox One today to see the new 2016 version and discovered that the app does not respond to control inputs from the Smartglass app on my Android Samsung S6 Edge or from the Xbox app on my Windows 10 PC. The only way I was able to interact with the program was by turning on a controller.

I'm the type of user that only likes to use a controller when I have to, which is usually only when playing games. This lack of functionality with alternative input devices (that are provided by Microsoft), along with the removal of gesture controls with the New Xbox One Experience, make using the app increasingly less user friendly. 

Anyone else encountering this issue?


Question Info

Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 5 Applies to:

You are unable to use SmartGlass to navigate within Xbox Fitness. Instead you will need to use a controller and/or Kinect (either gestures or voice-based commands).

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
