Cannot use an Xbox 360 controller using USB OTG on Moto G6 Plus

2018-05-20, 22:41 PM

Hi all,

I recently purchased a Moto G6 Plus - absolutely loving it so far. I've bought a USB OTG connector for the phone to use a wired USB Xbox 360 controller with it, however any key presses do not seem to do anything.

 

I was wondering if anyone has tried doing the same thing and having any luck? I've seen one guy on YouTube managing to do it on the regular G6, but can't find any info on the G6 Plus.

 

Sidenote: ensured the OTG was working as I've tried a keyboard and mouse with it and they work fine. Also the regular usb end is usb 3.0, not sure if that makes a difference.

Hello, reden96.

 

Thank you for reporting us, we can not assure you if that would work, let me try to investigate the same. Generally, you can connect your device as a controller - but not without a few conditions. To do so, you might need the Xbox One Smart glass app, could you give a try with this and let us know how it goes? 

 

In the meantime, let me see if i can find more information on this. 

 

Best,

Swaraj

Hi Swaraj,

I have just tried what you suggested with the Xbox One smart glass app, unfortunately it did not fix the issue. Is there anything else I could try? Thanks for the response also.

Hi,

 

I ended up purchasing a madcatz C.T.R.L.r Bluetooth controller instead and it works fine.
