To pair the PlayStation gamepad to the mobile phone or a tablet that doesn’t have the native OS support to do so (Dualshock 4 gained that ability only with the arrival of Android 10, an OS version that will not come to all Android devices), you will first need to download and install this app on your PC. Then you need to connect and pair the gamepad with the PC (you will need to have Bluetooth dongle or integrated BT received in your PC motherboard, usually found in laptops) and find out the exact Bluetooth address of your Android mobile device.
Sixaxis Pair Tool has an incredibly simple interface that consists of just one small screen that showcases the current BT address of the connected gamepad, and an empty field for entering a new BT address. By copy and pasting the exact BT address of your Android device, the gamepad will be synced to that address and lose the connection to the PC. This way, you can immediately start using the gamepad on a mobile device, skipping the initial connection handshake that prevents many accessories to automatically pair with the Android OS. If the gamepad for some reason loses the ability to connect to the mobile device, or you wish to pair it with another device, simply repeat the procedure with SixaxisPairTool on the PC.
In addition to the Windows OS version of this app, Sixaxis Pair Tool is also available on Linux as a standalone app and on macOS as the command line utility called “sixpair”. The app is 100% FREE and can be be used on all modern versions of Windows OS.
