Genshin Impact has become one of the video games of the moment with the largest number of players among all its versions. In titles of this type, there are those who prefer to use a control knob to play, so in this guide we are going to explain how to use them in the different versions , except for the console versions , in which the miHoYo RPG is available.

How to play with a controller on PC

In the event that you play Genshin Impact on PC, you can use the DualShock 4 for PS4 or the Xbox One controllers , whether they are normal or Elite. Even so, at first any controller that can be used on consoles should work without problems.

The normal thing is that just by plugging the device into a USB port , your computer should recognize it and thus start playing with it. Of course, in the event that a problem arises and it is not detected correctly, the steps to follow are indicated on the game’s official website .

To do this, you will have to access the PC Control Panel , click on “Device and Printers” and make sure that the control shown is the one that is actually connected. The next thing is to check if there are any virtual controllers causing problems and in turn make sure that there are no other devices that are connected and could generate an error.

How to play with an iOS and Android controller

Unfortunately, as of today, the iOS and Android version of Genshin Impact does not support any controller , so the only way to play is using the touch screen, as there is no other way to play than be this.

At least miHoYo has indicated that the controls do not work at the moment , leaving the door open that in the future they can be used, something that those who are not used to playing with the touch screen will appreciate.
