But the one way to play Pubg Mobile with a controller is to use PC emulators like Gameloop (old Tencent Gaming Buddy), Bluestacks, Memu or Phoenix OS, etc. These are the android emulators through them you can play any android game on your PC or Laptops.
But when playing on an emulator, you will only be matched with players who are also emulator players not with the Android or iOS players. Here is the official tweet from Pubg Mobile:
To ensure fair gameplay, players on emulators will only be matched with one another and not with players on mobile devices. Groups with at least one player using an emulator will also only be matched with one another and not with groups that use only mobile devices.
