Android Beta on Chromebook

Hi all,

I know that this is still in the beta version so issues are going to be present but I wanted to know if there is a fix for using a controller in the Android app on a Chromebook. I’m using a Dualshock 4 controller via bluetooth that the Chromebook picks up fine; I’ve tested this with Stadia and gamepad-tester.com. However, when going into the Shadow app, the inputs are not read; the only buttons that work are the D-Pad.

Is there a fix or some news on when this could be looked into/fixed?

Thanks

Chiming in to echo this problem. This is an insanely sloppy oversight - controller support for android apps is shaky at best on an android device; rolling out an android app with chromebook support rather than a PWA or a crostini-compatible appimage is the kind of stuff you’d expect out of an amateur outfit.

I wasted an entire Saturday afternoon restoring my chromebook to stock from GalliumOS just for this half-baked attempt at a port to be an absolute stinker.

Bra-vo.
