    Xbox Controller home button stopped working once I connected to android device


    Hi,



    I recently began using the streaming app to play on my phone. for the most part; works great. however, the home button of the controller connected to my phone has stopped working. I can still use the home button of a second controller connected to the console,
    but this is not a long term solution.

    help?

    Thanks

    :)

    How to connect a controller to mobile android

    yes you can connect an Xbox One S/X controller to an android device as long as the android device supports controllers. I know you can do this as I have connected mine to my android device (Amazon fire 10), and it works well. All you have to do is turn
    on bluetooth on your device, and go in bluetooth settings and select scan for new device, then with the xbox one s controller, turn it on, and press and hold the sync button until the light on the controller flashes quickly. Your device should find the controller
    and pair them together.

    LG K20 V unable to connect with Xbox 1s controller

    See below first and if it doesn't work read more info here:https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxinside...tooth_and_many_buttons_don.27t_appear_to_work

    Connect your Xbox Wireless Controller to your Android device via Bluetooth

    Follow these steps to pair your controller to your Android device using Bluetooth:

    1. For best performance, update your controller

    2. Turn on your Xbox Wireless Controller by pressing the Xbox button.

    3. Press the controller
    Connect button
    for three seconds and release.

    4. On your Android device open Bluetooth by going to Apps > Settings > Connections > Bluetooth > Turn On

    5. Once your phone’s Bluetooth is on, a middle size window will appear on your phone showing the name of nearby Bluetooth devices that are active for pairing

    6. Select your Xbox Wireless Controller from the list.

    7. Once the Controller has successfully been connected, you will see the words ‘Connected’ appear underneath the Xbox One Controller indicating that the Bluetooth has successfully paired with your
    android phone.

    Note: Some Bluetooth controllers support various modes. If your controller is not pairing or working properly, you might try switching modes to see if this improves your experience. However, not
    all devices and controllers will be compatible, so certain functionality may or may not work.

    Only notable difference, as far as I'm concerned, is that when your pad is connected via Bluetooth on an Android device, pressing the Xbox button no longer redirects you to the home screen.

    I was hoping for vibration over Bluetooth on Android, since it's possible on PC, but still not working.

    xbox controller home button issue wont resolve

    OK strange new development/observation

    it appears if i plug the controller into the xbox via usb, than still the home button doesn't work, HOWEVER if i remove the batteries making the controller dependent on the xbox for power then the HOME BUTTON WORKS IMMEDIATELY! while plugged into the xbox
    with a working home button if i put the batteries back into the controller, without hitting anything, the home button stops working again.

    and remember the controller will turn the xbox on via home button even while not connected by USB...

    what in the world is up with this controller?!
