Yes as long as it is a wired one. If it is wireless you need to buy a wireless adapter to make it work. Xxbox controllers are all I have been using for years.

Smartglass is the official app for xbox/xbox one and it allows you to check your messages.

If your controller is wireless, you would need this:



Because the charger wire does nothing more than charge. This is the charger wire:



But if your controller has the cord hardwired in like this :



Then you can plug and play.

I have used it on both desktop and laptop without problems. Yes the adapter will sync with the controller.

Every clone of these I've used I've only been able to use it by uninstalling the driver that windows automatically installs in device manager and then reinstalling it manually.
