How To Connect An Xbox One S Wireless Controller To Your Android Phone


Hey youtubers Gabe here with review dork and today we’re going to talk about how you can connect your xbox one s controller or xbox one bluetooth-enabled controller with your android phone and we’re going to show you how to do that coming right up after the break now if its your first time visiting our channel we review tech media viral videos and of course video games and I love me some android games guys but if you saw one of my other videos i was talking about how you can record your Android device or your android screen and i was playing asphalt 8 and you saw me doing that and doing this and on some of the sharper turns I’m like doing this and nearly dislocated my shoulder show there has to be a solution and i found one it was this bad boy here and that before we get to connecting that I do want to throw out a few caveats or basically this is the last generation xbox controller trailer i know it’s the xbox elite controller but I used to game however how do you differentiate the last generation xbox controller which connects to your xbox one via RF and the new xbox controller which connects via bluetooth by the way you can also use this on your PC if you have bluetooth on your laptop or personal computer just have to give you a heads up there but anyways how do you tell the difference well on the new controller you can see the button sits right here and it’s like nice and flush right and the bumper here you see the bumper here but one major major difference and tell tell signs that your xbox controller is a Bluetooth controller is that the bumper the plastic around the bumper and triggers is not wrapped around over the top to the Xbox button where you can see here i do have the bi-tone here is a great example actually see that the bumper the plastic actually wraps around to the top of the xbox controller so yes this is a last generation design last generation model and no it does not have bluetooth so if we do not have a bluetooth-enabled controller you get on over to game stop yeah don’t go ahead and buy a whole new xbox one s and yeah not necessary also we have to talk about your android phone now on the Microsoft website they talk about compatible devices and on the list we have the S6 , S6 edge s6 edge plus we have the galaxy note5 we also have the galaxy s7 and s7 edge and those are the listed compatible devices and i’m actually using an s7 right now but if you happen to have another device that you are able to pair these two with make sure you leave a comment in the comment section that helped a lot of people out only because if you look at some of the other YouTube videos you’ll see people making comments in the comment section where they’re not able to pair people are saying that their android devices asking for a passcode or the pairing is just not happening and you also hear some people speculating or blaming the firmware update to this controller for that not happening let’s see if you’re able to follow this tutorial and pair these two make sure you leave that comment in the comment section and tell us how you did it alright so without further ado let’s get these things connected now to set this up but you first want to do is turn on your controller and then the button on top the connectivity button you want to hold and now while that’s blinking we’re going to go ahead and go into our settings from settings we go to connections connections we go to bluetooth and well the xbox wireless controller is now available as a wireless device i’m going to click that it’s now pairing it will wait for it to pair and look at it is now paired the xbox wireless controller is now connected as an input device which is pretty awesome alright so let’s get to gaming alright guys so here you see it i am playing asphalt 8 and i’m using my xbox wireless controller to control the vehicle is pretty cool now you can also go into the google android store and there is an app from Nvidia believe it the nvidia tegra app and there it gives you a list of all the games that are controller compatible which is pretty awesome so you can literally just take your mobile device and your controller with you on the training on your way to work on the bus on your way to work during your lunch break whatever be and you can just play your favorite android games no different than you would play your xbox games and I think this is really really really cool anyways I hope you enjoyed this video and if you did make sure you like share comment subscribe this is Gabe with reviewdork PEACE!
