    I've connected my Xbox Series S to remote play numerous times including yesterday, but now that I'm away from home, it is saying that it looks like I haven't set up a console yet.

    I am able to turn on my console remotely using Alexa, but it wants me to click "enable", which alexa can't do for me. Is there a way to enable this setting on your console remotely?

    Also, any ideas as to why the xbox app can't seem to remember my console?

    I've tried on my phone and my iPad with no luck.

    the vita doesn't perform as advertised away from the console situation.
    Wrong, I remote play PS4 games on my Vita from around 30 miles away from home when on site work, it performs flawlessly.

    Remote play on Xbox App

    I have similar issue.

    What doesn't work:

    • Remote Control from Standy On : Cannot touch Xbox button or Turn On Console to truly power on the console.
    • Remote Play from Standby On: Cannot connect to the console, even though the router can find the console connected to network, can ping to the console through router console.
    • Game management: cannot install or uninstall games
    What does work:

    • Change console name: using Xbox app to change console name, the updated name reflects on Xbox app Beta, Xbox Game Streaming (Test app) for PC. This means the apps still be able to connect to the console, sending signal to the console.
    • Remote play when Powered on: remote play/console streaming feature can be used only and if only the console is turn on, with the Xbox button on console lighted on. Work on both External and internal networks => not related to NAT(Open type) or Remote settings because all testings give green status. ==> However, having the console turn on directly in-home or having someone at home to turn on the console for me is not the point of remote play. The console is supposed to be turn on in background for remote play from External network!
    This issue should be fixed before anything else!

    Forums are Wonky

    I noticed it wouldn't display your profile picture the last two days but they fixed it.

    Since yesterday morning though, the My Xbox Live App for android on Samsung smartphones doesn't work (but the Xbox 1 smart glass app does). I use these apps for checking on Xbox stuff when I'm away from home. With the My Xbox Live App for Samsung android
    when I click on the sign in screen I get this

    XBOX

    LIVE

    Couldn't sign in to Xbox LIVE. Please try again.

    Sign in.

    I've tried and un-install and installed the app again from Playstore. Still the same thing. Do note that the Xbox One Smart glass app does work when I launch it away from home on my phone. Also the
    Xbox 360 smart glass app works fine for when I want to use my phone as a remote for my 360 slim console.

    Xbox remote play not working away from home

    All of the sudden I am now experiencing this issue. I have never had problems until today. I haven't tried in over a month. This sucks. Finally wrapped up what I am working on and have some time to play.
