Whether you are a PC gamer or a mobile gamer, there are some games that just play better on a controller. A mouse and keyboard might be more accurate but are cumbersome to use with limited space or on a sofa. Touchscreen controls don’t require any peripherals but are not accurate or pleasant to use. Bluetooth controllers hit that sweet spot between the two.
But not all Bluetooth game controllers are created equal. Some are designed specifically for Android devices, and others are true console controllers that work across all platforms, like the Xbox One controller. To help you make the decision, we’ve put together a list of the best Bluetooth controllers for Android and PC gaming.

Step 1 ====> Open Settings
Step 2 ====> Connected devices
Step 3 ====> Connection preferences
Step 4 ====> Bluetooth
Step 5 ====> Pair new device
Then follow the specific instructions make your controller discoverable. Look for a dedicated Bluetooth button, or check the manual for the right button combination.
Step 6 ====> Your phone should detect the controller, tap its name to establish the connection.
