Motion controller setup

Motion controllers use Bluetooth to connect to your PC. If your PC doesn’t have Bluetooth, you can buy a USB 4.0 Bluetooth micro adapter and plug that into the PC.

When you connect your immersive headset for the first time, you'll be walked through pairing your motion controllers. But if you need to pair them later on, here’s how:

  1. Insert 2 AA batteries into each controller. Don’t put the battery cover back on yet, though.
  2. Press and hold the Windows button for 2 seconds to turn on each controller. They’ll buzz when they turn on.
  3. Put the controllers in pairing mode. The pairing button is inside the battery compartment. Press and hold it until the controller lights start flashing.
  4. On your PC, go to Settings  > Devices  > Bluetooth & other devices  and then select Add Bluetooth or other device  > Bluetooth.
  5. When the controllers appear, select them to pair.
