With a functional supported controller, people using iOS devices can avoid the touchscreen entirely while they play Genshin Impact.
For players with an extra controller on their hands, Genshin Impact might feel more user-friendly on mobile devices. Genshin Impact has become an extremely popular mobile game in the past year. However, several mobile gamers would prefer using a controller rather than the standard touchscreen.
Thankfully, there’s a way to enable this feature, at least for people using iOS devices. With a functional supported controller, people using iOS devices can avoid the touchscreen entirely while they play Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact does offer controller support on mobile devices, but only for iOS. The game fully supports controllers like Razer Kisihi, which is applicable on iOS devices. Android doesn’t have any controller support as of now.
With the help of third-party workarounds to play Genshin Impact on Android with controllers may lead to a permanent ban of the account. Mobile players with iOS 14 or higher can play the game with these controllers:
To play Genshin Impact with a controller on a mobile device, players should go to Settings > Controls. There, from the “Control Type” dropdown menu, they’ll have to select “Controller” which will link the controller to the game. Players will be required to go through this short process every time they launch Genshin Impact.
For most controllers, players will need to ensure that they are connected to the phone via Bluetooth. The control layout should be the same as those found in the controller’s usual devices and consoles. If players want to change the controls, the game has options for that in Settings > Controller Setup.
Unfortunately, Android devices still do not have controller support for Gensihn Impact. iOS players got their controller support months ago in version 1.3, but Android will have to wait. There are a few workarounds that allow Android players the game with a controller.
