How to connect a controller to Android

USB OTG cable needed to play Android games with USB controller. This gadget modifies a USB connection for phones and tablets.

The OTG-USB cable also lets you attach USB drives and controllers to Android. Our USB-OTG tutorial explains.

Buy a USB OTG cable first. Cheap on Amazon. Depending on your phone, pick USB-C or micro-USB.

Plug a USB OTG adapter into your Android phone, then attach a USB gaming controller. Open your game. Games that support controllers should detect the device.

Make your phone Bluetooth-discoverable. Enable Bluetooth in Settings > Connected devices > Connection options.

Tap the controller's name to connect. Like USB, games that can utilise controllers detect them at startup.
