Will an Xbox One DVD Drive Play Blu-Ray Discs?


After its predecessor's competitor first whipped out a high-grade Blu-ray drive, Microsoft decided to make a few upgrades for its next console. The Xbox One features its own Blu-ray drive, capable of reading both Blu-ray discs and standard DVDs. However, you'll need to do a little more than just put the disc in to watch anything.

Blu-Ray/DVD Player App

  • Before you can watch a movie on your Xbox One, you'll need to install the Blu-ray/DVD app on the console. When inserting a movie for the first time, your console will prompt you to install the application. If you bypassed this screen, go to "Store" from the dashboard, followed by "Apps." Search for "Blu-ray" and select "Download" to install. Alternatively, if you wish to use voice commands, you can say "Xbox, Bing" on the dashboard to open Bing search. When it loads, say "Xbox, Blu-ray player app" to locate the app and install. After installation, select "Blu-ray Player" on your dashboard to start watching your movie. The Xbox One supports all Blu-ray regions.
