What does the xbox controller even do?!

My rift came with a xbox controller and adapter. Its set up and connected, but the controller seems to have no use for anything what so ever. Am i supposed to be able to, for example, navigate google earth vr with it? Because it has no reaction in the app. Also, should i be able to navigate menus with the controller and select things? Because i also cant do that.

    that was the default input before touch was released a year after cv1, only works with games that have a gamepad listed as an input method (or touch as gamepad)

    any idea if you can use the xbox controller and touch at the same time ?

    xbox pad is fantastic for a great many games in VR.  you get the bare minimum of functionality with it in home however.  it must be really old stock to have gotten a unit with the xbox pad in it!.

    @stephano.flor  yes you can if the game supports it, and in oculus home as well just turn them both on.
    Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR :)

    You’d probably have to but your xbox controller down before picking up your Touch controllers.

    In general it's a REALLY good controller, too.  Most VR games released nowadays are based around Touch,  but I use that controller for every non-VR game that supports it.
    It's hard being the voice of reason when you're surrounded by unreasonable people.

    It's a great controller for armchair gaming too. I thought I might get some use out of it when I got myself a media centre PC for the living room but budget cuts have kept me to a single PC.... and my Xbox controller has kind of been unused.

    Do yourself a favor and play Chronos with it.
