I just bought a Xbox One S controller and a Bluetooth 4.0 CSR dongle for my PC. It works great.

Now I want to play games (mostly FIFA) with my brother and I need to buy another controller. I listed my preferred ways but I don't know if they work.

If anyone has tried these scenarios or is %100 sure that one way works please let me know.

  1. Xbox One S controller and DS4 over BT
  2. Two Xbox One S controllers over BT (as far as I searched this one is not possible)
  3. Xbox One S controller over BT and another controller (whatever it may be) over USB cable

I know that Microsoft and Sony each have their official dongle for connecting their controllers to PC (and this will be my last option if above ways wont work) but since I have Bluetooth I was wondering If the two can work together.

  • I don't see any problem scenario 3 would make only because they are essentially on separate "channels."

  • Yes they can work together. Bluetooth is a protocol that supports multiple devices. The real question probably should be whether latency is impacted in a way that would make playing unreasonable. Unfortunately, I haven't tested it. But from a technological point of view (regarding Bluetooth), nothing seems to prohibit any or your scenarios.

You should be able to pair all of them to the same PC with one Bluetooth dongle. I just tested with two Xbox One S controllers and two Dualshock 4 controllers and it worked fine. You may need third party drivers for the Dualshock 4 depending on the software you're trying to use it with.

Don't buy the official dongles. The Xbox One dongle is only for the OLD pre-S gamepads that do not support Bluetooth. The dongle does nothing for Xbox One S controllers. The Dualshock 4 dongle will work but it can only handle one controller at a time and isn't necessary if you already have a working Bluetooth dongle.

Both controllers work well with a micro USB cable.


Xbox website states - "We recommend connecting only one controller at a time using Bluetooth." You can freely connect PS4 DualShock 4 controller via USB as long as cable length is enough.
