What are the benefits of Smart controls?

Automatically enter/exit shooting mode: You won't have to enter or exit shooting mode by pressing F1 or any other assigned key. Smart controls will detect whether you're on a menu screen or in a match and enter shooting mode automatically, based on the situation.


On-screen controls will appear only when needed: Only relevant controls will appear for the in-game actions that can be performed at any given moment. For example, you will only see the controls for entering/exiting a vehicle when you can actually perform these actions in Battlegrounds Mobile India.


Removal of unnecessary on-screen controls: Smart controls won't cover your gameplay screen and allow you to see more of the in-game action giving you a more immersive experience.


Works with all game modes: Whether you're playing the classic Battle Royale, Team Deathmatch and more, Smart controls will automatically detect the game mode and efficiently function on all of them.


Supports all driving modes: Smart controls work with all the driving modes to provide you with a seamless driving experience. You can choose from button controls, single joystick or split joystick and Smart controls will adjust themselves based on your choice.  


NOTE: Smart controls work flawlessly across all device profiles and BlueStacks resolutions and hence provide a very responsive gaming experience.
