It’s now possible to have fun playing Call of Duty Mobile by using the touchscreen of your phone, a PS4 controller, or an Xbox One controller. Call of Duty Mobile passed a testing period in certain regions worldwide. And in preparation for its launch, set for today, October 1, an update that introduced the support for controllers has been released. After updating the game, it is possible to see the controller’s settings in the game’s settings. The update allows using both Playstation 4 and Xbox One standard controllers to play the game.
To use a controller, for iOS users, it will be necessary to download iOS 13. The update introduced support use for both Playstation 4 and Xbox One standard controllers. While Android offers already that option.
Worth noting that at the moment at which this article is being written, according to CharlieINTEL, Call of Duty Mobile still doesn’t support controllers on iOS as the controller settings aren’t showing up.

Allowing the use of controllers puts touchscreen users in a severe disadvantage. But, at the moment, there aren’t any indications on if and how the game’s team plans to solve this imbalance.
As said, Call of Duty Mobile launches on October 1, as a free-to-play game, on Android and iOS.
Playing Call of Duty Mobile While Waiting For Modern Warfare
After the two Call of Duty Modern Warfare beta weekends, fans are eager to play the upcoming CoD title. However, the game launches on October 25, which still almost a month away. For this reason, the launch of Call of Duty Mobile can at least keep the fanbase entertained for a bit. Mostly because many feel the need for something new since Black Ops 4 has reached the end of its cycle.
And despite mobile games often don’t appeal too much to console or PC gamers, this version seems to have, already, gathered the interest of many bored fans. Especially now that it’s possible to play with a controller. Obviously, it won’t last long, but they will be able to satisfy their Call of Duty hunger at least for a couple of days.
