How To: Pairing your Controller to your Phone

After our recent COD: Mobile review... some of you were wonder how you pair game controllers with your device. I even connected one for an older gamer (game on!)... so I figured this could be useful to some of you. These are the two I've paired... so I'm going to focus on the PS4 controller and the Xbox controller (I connected to Android phones).

  • Start off by making sure your PS4 controller isn't paired to your... PS4.
  • Go to your phone settings by swiping up through your icons until you see the little cog icon marked "Settings" or swipe down at the top of the screen to show the dropdown menu. That should have a little cog icon as well.
  • Go to "Bluetooth & device connection".
  • Turn on your Bluetooth (Duh of the day)
  • Select "Pair new device"
  • Grab your PS4 controller and press the "Share" button and the Playstation "Home" button (the one with the Playstation logo) and hold them both until the player light on the top of your controller begins to blink... then you're ready to pair.
  • Once you see "Wireless Controller" or equivalent, press it to pair and... you're ready to game!!!
  • If you don't see "Wireless Controller" or something similar in name pop up, refresh, or go back and then click on "Pair new device" again.


  • Start off by making sure your Xbox controller isn't paired to your... Xbox or PC.
  • Go to your phone settings as mentioned above.
  • Go to "Bluetooth & device connection".
  • Turn on your Bluetooth.
  • Select "Pair new device"
  • Grab your Xbox (One/PC) wireless controller and turn it on by pressing the Xbox "Home" button represented by the Xbox logo. (This is a little simpler than the PS4 pairing.)
  • Once you see "Xbox Wireless Controller" press it to pair and... you're also ready to game!!!
  • If this didn't prove successful, follow the step above highlighted in yellow... but you will be looking for "Xbox Wireless Controller".
Some of you might think... duh, but everyone isn't you or me. There are parents, grandparents, and others looking for solutions like this to bring a little light to someone who may not be able to afford a console (medical bills can mount up quick).

This can also be a great option for gamers (kids to adults) in and out of the hospital for treatments like dialysis, chemotherapy, and more. So with that said, share the link... and give the gift of gaming in the new year! HAPPY 2020!
