Hopefully someone on here has the 8bitdo Pro 2 controller and can answer my question: can it connect to Android-devices on more than just the A-channel on the 4-way bluetooth connection? I have two Android devices that i would like to have connected so I can just change the 4-way bluetooth slider to connect, is this possible? Can Android devices also connect to the D- or X-input channel without issue?

    Sorry, I don’t really have a definite answer I can say from experience. But I think what might be an option if one of your Android devices is a streaming box: Maybe use an 8bitdo USB adapter? That way the controller connects to the adapter via whatever channel that uses and to your other device via Bluetooth.

    I’m also replying because I’m curious about options for this kind of setup. Personally, I’d love a controller that can connect to multiple consoles and devices without needing to re-pair. Just pushing a button and changing from my PC to my Switch or Android streaming box. Really wish the All Controller was a success or at least had a successor. One controller for your living room and you’re set for all past and present devices.

      One is the Google TV CC so unfortunately no USB-inputs. However the other is a USB-C dock mainly to be used with my Logitech Gcloud. So any BT-channel on the Pro 2 would work with the USB-adapter?

      I’ve also been looking at newly release Gulikit KingKong Pro Max 3. It has several BT-channels plus one 2.4GHz with the included USB-adapter that unfortunately only seem to support Windows. However, I’ve heard mixed reviews of the KKPM3 in regards to hardware-quality and latency.

        Now I’m thinking you don’t even need the USB adapter to connect to both your Android devices. The Android mode is probably just another X-Input Bluetooth channel.
