Properties and configuration of a gamepad.
A standard gamepad will have standardized mappings for buttons and axes, like the XBox360 controller and the DualShock 4 controller (PlayStation 4 controller). To find out more information about your device and test its connection with certain browsers, please refer to the HTML5 Gamepad Tester.
The W3C standard for Gamepad is still in draft status. As such, support is limited to a subset of browsers and operating systems. We have not tested every browser/OS combination but as a general guide we have experienced reliable results with the following pairings:
|No gamepad devices support this browser/OS combination|
|Edge(17 and above)||XBox360|
|This browser is not supported on this OS|
|Safari||This browser is not supported on this OS||No gamepad devices support this browser/OS combination|
Note: You might need to restart your browser after connecting a device.
