Valve has announced that the Switch Pro controller is now officially supported on Steam, the PC gaming platform. The Steam Controller Team has added support for the Switch Pro controller in the latest Steam Client Beta.

The Switch Pro Controller supports custom configuration and even supports motion controls.

Here’s what Valve said in the announcement about the Switch Pro controller:

“We think it is a great device with a feature set that pairs nicely with your Steam catalog. The d-pad is ideal for fighting games and platformers and the gyro enhances aim in your action/FPS titles.”

If you want to try it out, you’ll have to opt into the Steam Client Beta. You can read the official announcement and guide on how to get your controller working with Steam here.
