A Jio button, select, start, back, home, and TV key are also included on the controller. With a wireless range of up to 10 metres, the Jio Gaming Controller is compatible with Android tablets and smart TVs. However, for a better gaming experience, the company recommends pairing it with a Jio Set-Top-Box, which was released back in 2019. For a low latency experience, the wireless controller supports Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. It has a Micro USB port on the back for charging and a built-in Li-ion battery that lasts for eight hours.
Jio Gaming Controller Price
The Jio Gaming Controller costs ₹3,499 and is available in Matte Black. You can purchase it directly from Jio’s official website.
