Do I need the Backbone App to use Backbone One?

The Backbone app is not required for your Backbone One to work with games. However, the Backbone One app offers a rich, community-driven experience that we think you will really love!

Backbone+ gives players access to:

  • Access to the revamped Backbone app, including any new features to come.
  • Exclusive perks, like a free trial for Discord Nitro.
  • Streaming directly to Twitch.
  • Play your favorite games on iPad, Mac, Tablet, and PC with your Backbone. 

If you don't redeem your free trial, or decide not to subscribe, the app will still automatically install new software updates to the device to help maintain compatibility with future versions of operating systems as well as give you access to device info.
