One of them made a video showing how the new controller works with Android and Windows. As it turns out, the controller also can not work with the PS4. The compatibility feature was first spotted by YouTuber Austin Evans who was able to connect the controller with a Surface Laptop Go and Google Pixel 5 phone. Although the controller did not vibrate or offer the haptic feedback that it should with the PlayStation 5, it worked enough for Evans to enjoy the controller's feel while playing on xCloud. It is also slightly bigger than the controller for the upcoming Xbox Series X that Evans also had on hand for the unboxing video. Still, it is cool that you have the option of using the controller with your PC to play Xbox games.

Here's more from Pete Smith from Sony.

That's interesting as third-party game controllers working with Android in the past has been more of a hit or miss.

Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developers Lucid Games and Wushu Studios have delayed Destruction AllStars from its previously planned PlayStation 5 launch day release on November 12 as a full-priced title to February 2021, where it will be included with PlayStation Plus for two months at no additional cost.

In terms of its design, the video posted by Evans on YouTube shows miniature triangles, squares, circles, and crosses etched on the backside of the PS 5's DualSense controller that appears to be a tribute to the classic PS controller buttons. Interestingly, the packaging does not include a USB cable for charging.
