The Atari VCS Companion app was created to make browsing within streaming services and within the browser easier. While you can navigate in these environments with the Modern Controller and Classic Joystick, it can be a bit tricky. The Companion App replicates a mouse and keyboard on your phone or tablet, making it easy to scroll vertically, select items with more accuracy, and enter text into search and login fields.

Log Into the Companion App
It is important that you enter the same email address and PIN in the Companion App that you used to create your Atari VCS profile. You will only be able to use the Companion App if your login information matches exactly.
Connect the Companion App to your VCS
In order to use the Companion app, you must connect your mobile device to your WiFi network. Your mobile device and your Atari VCS must also be on the same network. If they are not on the same network, your mobile device will be unable to see your VCS. You can connect your VCS to your network using ethernet, just make sure that the VCS is connected to the same network as your WiFi router.
