  1. Xbox Series wireless controller doesn't work properly on Android phone


    Recently I've bought a Xbox Series Controller + Wireless Adapter for Windows 10. The firmware ia already updated through the Xbox Accessories app. It's made for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Android and with the future support for iOS. It does work properly on PC, but however, it seems there is a problem with my Samsung Galaxy S20FE 5G.

    It connects via Bluetooth as a Xbox Wireless Controller 4416 successfuly, but It works only for navigating through the phone's menu and home launcher. No games that I've tried (Asphalt 9, Real Racing 3, FIFA Mobile) have recognized the buttons on my gamepad at all.

    I even tried XGamepadTester app and the only buttons that worked are L and R Stick click, LB, RB, Start and X, Y, B and A.

    Please, can anybody give me an advise what should I do to fix this? Should I wait for adding support of Android games? Or is this specific model not suitable for gaming on Android phones at all?

    :)

    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.

    Xbox Elite wireless controller series 2 bluetooth problem!

    Hi,

    I try to connect my Xbox Elite wireless controller series 2 via bluetooth on my Ipad Pro 11 inch 2018, but it can't make connection or won't be recognized. The series 2 controller supports bluetooth. I can make connection with the other older version Xbox
    One S wireless controller immediately.

    I'd make a phone call with Apple support and they said that maybe the problem could be that the Xbox Elite controller series 2 won't be supported and isn't compatible with Ipad.

    I want to know guys if you had the same problem and I want to ask if there will be an update in the future to solve this problem?
    At the moment the series 2 elite controller is not compatible with Iphones/Ipads. At the moment the only device that the series 2 controller is available on IOS side is the Mac and even that it's janky. Series 2 controller works fine on Android at the moment.
    Sorry if this doesn't help you, I myself is waiting for the Bluetooth proprietary to be added to the IOS list

    Xbox one new "mapping" for their controllers, is anyone else having trouble with it?

    If you have smartglass on iOS or android phones or the Xbox app on a windows phone or surface then you can log into that and use the controller function to access the A button. Use that to remap the controller (I'm assuming it's a standard wireless one).
