Pairing your Xbox Controller to your Android Device is Easy

Touch controls for mobile games aren’t always great. Perhaps they’re poorly implemented, or maybe your device doesn’t support multitouch. Instead of getting frustrated about this, why not consider connecting an Xbox game controller?

Connecting an Xbox controller to your Android phone is very easy. You don’t need any additional hardware with a newer model controller. A typical Android device’s Bluetooth support is all you need to connect the controller to your phone or tablet.

Before starting, make sure the controller is fully charged, and you’ve unplugged your Xbox One. If you don’t, the controller remains paired to it, which means you can’t pair it with your Android device.

Begin by putting Android into discoverable mode by opening Settings > Connected devices > Connection preferences > Bluetooth > Pair new device, then follow the specific instructions. Next, hold the Sync button on the Xbox One controller. Upon detection, select the controller on your phone and follow the instructions to pair.

Note that this will only work with newer Xbox One controllers that use Bluetooth. The original models released when the Xbox One first came out use RF, which Android doesn’t support.

If your controller won’t connect wirelessly, you can use USB On The Go micro cables instead.

This also applies if you want to connect an old wired Xbox 360 controller. It should work with most Android devices, although note that the Guide button may flash while you use it.
