PS5’s Dualsense controller is believed to be one of the best PC controllers because of its cutting-edge haptic motors and “adaptive” triggers, which give it a unique sensation when playing PS5 games on a computer. On the PC, the DualSense is simple to use, and some Sony game ports actually take advantage of the advanced features. The DualSense’s unique features can also be used in games like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. Thanks to Steam, we can use the DualSense controller in almost any PC game without complicated setup.

How to connect a wireless PS5 controller to a PC via Bluetooth?

Below are the steps that you need to follow in order to do the same:

Step 1: First of all, grab your PS5 controller and hold down the “Playstation Button” and the “Share” buttons together for about 5-10 seconds, until the blue light on the light bar starts to blink.

Step 2: On your PC, open the start menu and head over to “Settings“. Then, click on the “Bluetooth and devices” section on the left side of your screen.

Step 3: Click on “Add device“, go to “Bluetooth” and let your PC recognise the controller. It should show up on your screen within 10-30 seconds. Then, click on it to connect to it.

Remember, this way you’ll easily be able to play all the Steam games. But for the non-steam games, you need to either connect the controller via USB to your PC or add the non-steam game to Steam in order to play wirelessly.

That’s all, folks! We hope that we were able to help you connect your PS5 controller to your PC via Bluetooth.
