Usb gamepads

Hello. I have a usb hub attached to my Chromecast with usb gamepads that work fine (on beach buggy racing ). But when I try to install games that need gamepads, it won't allow me to install them. As if it would not recongnize my gamepad (maybe cause it was not bluetooth??) Any solution? thank you very much!

Use the remote control located inside of your Google Home app for the Chromecast device you're using. Switch mode to Swipe setting and you're ready to play.

Thank you for your answer. I did what you suggested which I didn't know I could do. Unfortunately I still can't install some games. It might not have anything to do with the gamepad. When I try to install games, it says that it can't install it and to try again. Any other idea?

Update: I have been able to install a few games I was not able before. It seems I was low on storage so I added an SD card and moved a few apps to it. I can't say for sure that was the problem, but it seems to be working fine since. Thanks for your help!
