How to Access Xbox Live From Windows Phone

One of the biggest benefits of a Windows phone is the capability to play Xbox Live games on handsets. Doing this is fairly easy but if it is your first using a Windows phone and you want to take advantage of Xbox Live, it may be confusing. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to access Xbox Live from your Windows phone.

1. Using your computer, go to where you will be prompted to either log in or sign-up. If you don't have a "LIVE" account yet, select "Sign Up" found on the left side of the page. Enter all the required information and finish the sign up process.

2. On your phone, swipe your screen to the left to access the app list. Scroll and find the "Settings" app. On the "Settings" screen, tap "Email+Accounts" and then "Add Account." Choose "Windows Live" and log in using the email address and password.


3. To begin accessing Xbox Live games, go to the "Settings" page on your phone and scroll down to "Games." Tap "Games" to take you to the log in page of the Xbox Live app on your phone. Use the email address and password tied to your Windows Live account to sign in. If you don't have an Xbox Live account yet, you can create one using your Windows Live ID.
