You can do the following on your Tablets and Android TV too.
Step 1: From the controller, you need to hold the PS and Share button at the same time. Keep holding it until a white light flash. If it does, it means your controller is ready for pairing.
Step 2: Enable Bluetooth on your android device. Once you do that, you will see Wireless Controller as an available device. Click on it and wait for it to connect.
