Use with PC platforms

Windows

Connecting the controller should automatically recognize device as DirectInput controller. After installing official a separate driver controller can be used as Xinput device.[2]
Steam application is converting generic DirectInput devices into a widely recognized Xinput format without necessity of installing additional Amazon driver. Experimental support for the Amazon Luna Controller connected via Bluetooth has been added with beta update at July 7th.

XInput wrapping

Acting as native DirectInput controller, it's possible to use any of the generic wrappers. See the controller article for those.

Linux

This controller is "Plug and Play" on most distributions of Linux (requires Linux kernel version 5.13 or newer)

Steam

Steam Input

Works via USB cable and over Bluetooth.[3]

Steam Link compatibility

Works without any drivers on any operating system that supports Steam.
Can be used just to send input from a controller to a PC. Go into Streaming options, hit 𝗬 and disable video and audio streaming.
Won't work great unless you connect it to LAN or a low latency Wi-Fi.

Support in games
