Bluetooth says hello

Our dear friend Mr. Bluetooth, available on almost all devices, says hello once again!

Yes, this is the only way to connect your PS4 controller to your Android device. And here's how it goes:

  • Press and hold the Share and PlayStation button on your PS4 controller at the same time to turn on its Bluetooth option
  • Enable the Bluetooth feature on your Android device.
  • When it picks up the "DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller" from its Bluetooth radar, approve the pairing of the two.
  • Click Ok and wait until your controller and phone/tablet connect to one another.

Enjoy using your PS4 controller on to your Android device, my friend!
