Do PS5 and Xbox Series X controllers work with my smartphone?


The new consoles are finally out, and if you are lucky enough to illuminate one, you are now the proud owner of the new controllers. This may not be the first question you ask, but ultimately, you want to know: Will the PS5 and Xbox Series X controllers work on my smartphone?

The short answer is: Yes, both will work with your smartphone, just as both previous-gen PS4 DualShock 4 and Xbox One controllers worked wirelessly with the phone. In fact, the process seems largely the same for adding new controllers to your handset. Thank you, Sony and Microsoft!

Keep in mind that neither company has explicitly announced compatibility between their new console controllers and modern smartphones – but actual evidence has shown that they simply connect the same. We expect official documents to be revealed soon, but in the meantime, here’s how to connect your PS5 and Xbox Series X / S controllers to your smartphone.
