It was already possible to play on an Android smartphone or tablet with a PS4 or Xbox One controller. Now, Google's system can also work with the "Pro" controller of the Nintendo Switch.
One of the main benefits of Android for mobile gamers is the opening of the system to a slew of controllers. A feature that was only recently opened on iOS.
Now, Google's system is enriched even with a new controller and not just any. Indeed, with the Android 10 update, Android smartphone and tablet users can also use the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller in mobile games.
The information was first spotted by the Android Police site. In an article published on Wednesday, the specialized site has seen that with the help of a commit proposed last June on AOSP, the Nintendo Switch Controller can now enjoy Android controller controls.
Joy-Con are already compatible with Android
As a reminder, the Joy-Con of the Nintendo Switch can already be used on Android. This was also the case with the Pro Controller, but not all the buttons on the controller were compatible with the Google system. On the side of Sony and Microsoft, the controllers of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are also compatible with Android.
Now, to connect the Nintendo controller to an Android device, simply press the button on the back of the Pro Controller to start pairing, then select it in the Bluetooth settings of your smartphone or tablet.
