I need help with some questions I have about my steam controller

So I bought my steam controller a few years ago and I have since lost my USB receiver. I was wondering if there was a way to get that replaced, or if I'm out of luck?

I have also seen some people talking about Bluetooth for controllers but I haven't been able to get mine to work, do I need a newer controller?

My steam controller works with Bluetooth just fine. You have to update the firmware though.

First try support, there is an option for dongle replacement and they might still have some.

The bluetooth is not on by default on the controller, you need to have the latest update on it (do it via cable).

If Steam doesnt have any replacements you can get any bt dongle and put the controller software on it.


How would I put the controller software on the bt dongle?

Awesome! Thank you so much!

Try to get a replacement from valve first, seems like the easier way to go.


I will do that, thanks!
