OTG controller issue

JUMP TO SOLUTION

So I got a new Xbox one afterglow controller to play games with on my S10.. it's a wired controller so I plugged it in using the OTG connector.. the lights on the controller came on but it never recognized any input.. I tried it on fortnite, dolphin, and octopus but none worked.. is there a setting somewhere I need to turn on what?

An Xbox or PlayStation controller that has been manufactured by Microsoft or Sony will work. After reaching out to my knowledge base I can confirm that Afterglow controllers are not compatible with Samsung phones.

Which otg connector are you using? If you're using the microusb to USB C it definitely doesn't have otg. Only the full size USB to USB c works as otg.

I'm not honestly sure if the Afterglow controllers are compatible with Samsung devices. I'm going to reach out to our specialists and see if that is, in fact, the case here.
