Can you Use PS5 Controller on PC?

 

It is absolutely possible to connect your PS5 controller to your Windows PC or Windows Laptop even if your PC doesn't have Bluetooth built-in.

If your PC/Laptop already has Bluetooth built-in, you'll be able to connect the PS5 Dual Shock Controller directly. On the other hand, if your PC doesn't have Bluetooth, you'll need a Bluetooth Transmitter adapter that supports Data connection.


These methods work with PS4 Controller as well.
