The Xbox Wireless Controller—also known as the Xbox Series X|S controller—is a good gaming accessory that isn’t just for Xbox. Today, we’ll show you how to use the Xbox Wireless Controller with your Android phone.
How to Pair an Xbox Controller with Android
The process of connecting this Xbox controller with Android is similar to connecting any other Bluetooth accessory. First, you need to open “Settings” on your Android phone. If you’re not sure where to find it, you can swipe down twice on the home screen of your Android phone to open Quick Settings.
Now, tap the gear icon in the bottom-right corner of the Quick Settings panel on Android.
In Android Settings, select “Connected Devices” to open Bluetooth pairing preferences.
On the Connected Devices page in Settings on your Android phone, tap “Pair New Device.”
This is the time to put your Xbox Wireless Controller in pairing mode. Press and hold the pairing button on the controller until the Xbox button starts blinking rapidly.
