HTML5 Gamepad Tester

No gamepad detected.

If you have one, make sure it's plugged in / paired, and press buttons to wake it up.

Gamepad Tester / Debugger

When connected, this tool displays the current state of your gamepads, inputs, joysticks, and anything else that can be reported by the HTML5 Gamepad Api.

This is also useful for debugging broken controllers, experimental hardware, and more.


Why isn't my gamepad showing up?
The Gamepad API is still inconsistent across browsers and OSes. Some things to check:
  • Is the device plugged in / connected via bluetooth
  • Press some buttons. On some devices, only certain buttons will wake up the gamepad API (the shapes on PS3 controllers, for instance)
  • Close other apps that may be using the gamepad
  • Restart your web browser
What information is being displayed here?
Multiple gamepads can be connected to a computer at once. This displays them all, and their current state.
  • Timestamp: the time of the latest update from the gamepad
  • Axis [N]: The current position of the gamepad's analog inputs
  • B [N]: The current on/off position of buttons. Supports analog buttons.
Does vibration work?
Chrome is, so far, the only browser that supports vibration.
What about experiemental features?
Features like Pose, HapticActuators, and others, are not widely supported yet.
Once browsers start supporting them, this page will be updated.
Why are the axis values weird?
Not all controllers are reported the same way, across devices, browsers, and OSes.
This site simply displays what the Gamepad API returns.
