How to Fix Call of Duty Mobile Controller Not Working – Controller Connection Issues

There are several things you can try out to fix this. Though, before we begin, we have to point out that, like most fixes that depend on the player, these can stop working once the next update hits. After all, issues such as this depend on the developers, and only they can fully fix this on their end. With that out of the way, let’s see what you can do about this. If you want to have better accuracy in COD Mobile, it’s understandable that you would want to use an Xbox or PS controller to play the game. This can usually be easily done by connecting the controller and your mobile device via Bluetooth.

The first method you can try if your controller isn’t working is to quit multiplayer and then go back into multiplayer again. That often works. The second thing you can also try out is to go into your mobile device settings. Then go into the Accessibility tab, followed by Installed Services. In here, turn off the Select to Speak shortcut. After that, restart COD Mobile to see if that has done the trick. If neither of these work, you can also attempt to restart your mobile device.

      This worked after the update? Season 10. And on any device and any controller? All you did was use the controller cable to connect to the devices

    I tried using your ps4 controller and it connects and everything just when I got to play my controls are all messed up like I can’t turn at all or circle makes you jump instead of x when the controls says x is to jump. My aim and fire buttons are switch as when I played before the update it was l2 to aim and r2 to fire now its the bumpers (l1 and r1).

    3. A

    Having that same issue as well everything switch around and can’t turn.. plz hurry an fix..

  9. B

    Dude, idk if its just me, but this seems like an issue/bug that, for 5he developers, should be pretty quick n easy to correct.. so wtf??? They’re really driving me with this bs bc it shouldn’t still be happening. U would think they would view this as a high priority n would be doing whatever tf it takes to fix something like this. Is it just me though, or has it seemed like nothing is being done on their part n like they aren’t even aknowledging that there’s an issue with their game that they are actually working on fixing??

    1. J

      I feel you bro… I also keep thinking the same thing I sent lots of emails to them and even put it in the comment section of their twitter and Facebook post about season 10, it’s like they’re not ready to fix it n it’s annoying😡

    So go to your settings, go to accessibility, then go to installed services and turn off everything that’s running. Mine was my Grabber app for Amazon Flex. Turn it off in installed services and instantly my controller worked for the next match!! Apparently auto type clicker apps are bugging us out

    Me too I’m using a Huawei P30 Pro. Let me know if you get it fixed please

  14. C

    I’m facing exactly the same problem with my PS4 controller. And it happens the same on both my Huawei and Honor devices. I connected the same controller to my Samsung phone and it works as intended. Wonder if this is just happening to Huawei Devices.
    And in my huawei devices I can’t locate the “installed service” as author mentioned about the fix on this issue.
    Hope there is a fix on this issue very soon.

    It seems like it’s on their end. I talked to someone through the support early in the week. Tried 5 different methods to fix this issue with no luck. Then got a message today asking if it’s fixed now…..I told them no obviously. I love the fact that Xbox controllers still work and PS4 controllers work for Iphone, but not android now. I hope they fix this soon or I guess I’ll be buying an Xbox controller…

      I was told by the support team it will most likely be fixed during the next major update. Which to me is when the Battle Pass ends in mid-December. Sucks but at least they say they are looking into it.

        Omg u gotta be kidding me SMh.. S###’s depressing n aggravating AF man. I can’t even bring myself to try playing touchscreen BC I’d have to basically relearn how to play the damn game. Them saying “the next major update” us when it’ll be fixed sounds like laziness plain n simple. Someone should really be fired, n then another one hired to come in n fix this yesterday, forget the next major update. Unacceptable.. N just think of the money they’ll lose out on BC of this. Season 10 BP is the first one I haven’t bought since I started playing the game n that’s not counting bundles/crates I would’ve gotten thus far into this season

          I feel your pain. It’s rediculous, but all we can do is wait and be patient.

          Don’t feel bad, I bought the season battle pass before I realized controller didn’t work, but what they care, they already got my money… Lol
