Subsequently, if they work properly, the PS4 will recognize the connected device and then ask who will use it. So all you have to do is choose the profile you want to associate with the device.



    After connecting you can use the keyboard and be able to scroll through the menus of the PS4 console, you can also enter text, browse the internet and much more.

    It should also be noted that you can change the keyboard type (language), you just have to enter the configuration, choose the devices and finally select the external keyboard. Also from there you can change the delay and the key repetition rate.
