gyroscope in the new input system

How do i use the gyroscope using the new input system also which one should i use the gyroscope or the accelometer?

Im trying to achieve something that when i turn my mobile my view rotates. kinda like the first person controller on mobile


  • Use the accelerometer.

    It will give you a Vector3 that represents the relative direction of gravity to the device.

    Perfectly upright would be: (0, -9.81, 0), normalized that would be (0, -1, 0)

    Rotated 90 to the left would be: (-9.81, 0, 0), normalized to (-1, 0, 0)

    90 to the right is: (9.81, 0, 0), normalized to (1, 0, 0)

    the last one is positive because gravity is now matching the + right direction of the device.

    NOTE: if auto rotate is on, the device's local facing will rotate with it. So in landscape mode, up, becomes what would be left or right in portrait mode.
