How to Use the Gesture Typing Feature on the PlayStation 4 DualShock Controller

Oyetoke Tobi - Friday, April 14, 2017

Are you tired of using the traditional and boring way of using the PlayStation 4 Dualshock Controller? Do you know that you can use Gesture typing to input text and control your PlayStation 4 Dualshock controller?

Typing manually with the Dualshock controller can be a huge pain sometime. However, if you’re not fond of using the Dualshock buttons to navigate through the keyboard on the PS4, there is actually a very simple and faster approach to do this. 

With the Gesture typing feature, you don’t have to worry about using the Dualshock buttons. All you need to do is just to move the controller around to navigate and input text. This is actually possible with the built-in sensors in the Dualshock 4 controllers.

With enough practice and time, this can be the best way of inputting text and navigating. Furthermore, enabling the gesture typing is just as easy as clicking a button.

So here’s how to use the Gesture Typing on the PlayStation 4 DualShock Controller.

Turn on your PlayStation 4 if it is turned off. Then simply click the R3 button on the Dualshock controller. For those who may not know the R3 button, the R3 button is the right joystick. So press the button.

The moment you press the R3 button, instructions will show up on the screen which guides you through the steps and how to use gesture typing. It’s pretty easy; all you have to do now is to just follow along with what you see on the screen. What the entire guide is trying to explain is to just move the controller up and down, then back and forth to input text and navigate. Very simple, isn’t it?

Once you are done with that, you can now start using it according to what you learnt in the guide. In case you don’t like it (not everyone will like it, trust me!), disabling it is as easy as pressing a button. Just press any button on the D-Pad and navigate the keyboard like you would normally. That’s all; simply doing this will disable gesture typing.

And in case you ever want it back, as usual, press the R3 button again.
