The Pro Controller of the Nintendo Switch, is the best option to enjoy games like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, as it adds a more conventional game experience. However, what many were unaware of is that the big N would have designed their new controller in such a way that it could be used with other equipment and devices other than the Switch.

Recently the Youtuber DreWoof, shared an interesting find that he did after experimenting with the Pro Controller. As shown in the video below, Pro Controller can be used without any problem with a PC, if we connect it via Bluetooth but it doesn't work with USB. But that's not all because he also discovered that it's compatible with Android devices and even with Steam's Big Picture Mode.

Of course, he says that not all games or programs recognize or accept the commands of the controller.
