You can use Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con controllers with Windows games

If you have picked up Nintendo’s new Switch, you might be glad to know that you can actually use the Joy-Con controllers to play games on Windows. The Joy-Con controllers for the Nintendo Switch actually work over Bluetooth similar to the Xbox One Wireless Controller which means you can use it on your Windows 10 device by pairing the controllers with your PC. You actually have to connect both of the controllers separately, however.

Once connected, you won’t be able to start playing games with the Joy-Con controllers immediately. Instead, you will have to download and install the JoyToKey app to map the buttons on the controller to the mouse and keyboard controls. After that, you should be able to play and control games with the Joy-Con controllers which is pretty neat.

Since the Joy-Con controllers work over Bluetooth, you can also use them with other devices such as an Android device. We aren’t quite sure if the Joy-Con controllers work with Windows 10 Mobile — but if you happen to own a Switch and a Windows phone, try it out and let us know in the comments section below.
