What Is USB OTG? 10 Cool Ways to Use It on Android

USB drives are convenient, but you can't use one with your phone. Well, unless you have an Android phone and know what USB OTG means.

USB On-The-Go (OTG) is a standardized specification that allows a device to read data from a USB device without requiring a PC. The device basically becomes a USB host, which isn't an ability every gadget has. You will need an OTG cable or OTG connector.

You can do a lot with this, For example, you might connect a USB flash drive to your phone, or use a video game controller with an Android device.

USB OTG is not an Android-specific feature. But since that's its most popular use, we'll focus on using it with Android.

Check If Your Android Supports USB OTG

The easiest way to check if your phone or tablet supports USB OTG is to look at the box it came in, or the manufacturer's website. You'll see a logo like the one above, or USB OTG listed in the specifications.

Another easy method is to use a USB OTG checker app. There are plenty of such free apps on the Google Play Store, but some are loaded with ads. USB OTG Checker is a reliable app for this. Download and run it, and you'll know if your phone supports USB OTG.

Not every Android device supports USB OTG; it's something the manufacturer has to enable. If you find out your phone isn't compatible when you use USB OTG Checker, this unfortunately won't work for you.

Samsung and other smartphones have OTG enabled out of the box. However, other manufacturers may require you to enable it manually from Settings > Additional Settings > OTG.

What You Need to Use USB OTG

Your Android device has a standard micro-USB or USB-C port (see our guide to USB cables). However, many USB devices require a full-size USB port. You can resolve that with a converter/adapter.

Specifically, look for a micro-USB or USB-C (depending on what your phone uses) male to full-size USB female adapter---those male and female designations are essential. Amazon carries many such adapters, like the popular Anker USB-C to USB adapter.

It's also possible to buy flash drives with both micro-USB and standard USB ports, like the super useful Kingston Micro Duo. It doesn't cost much more than a regular USB drive either, so it's a pretty sound purchase.

Once you're ready with USB OTG for your Android device, a world of opportunities opens up. Here are some of the most popular uses.

1. Connect Flash Drives and External Hard Drives

Unsurprisingly, external storage is at the top of this list. Just plug a drive in, and you'll be ready to go. You can then transfer all kinds of files.

Flash drives are the easiest to connect; external hard drives may or may not work. Portable hard drives that draw power from the phone won't always work, but external drives with their own power source should work just fine. You'll need these drives to be in FAT32 format, as NTFS doesn't work properly with Android.

Additionally, if you don't want to get into the hassle of transferring the media, then you can directly play music or videos from your OTG storage drive connected to your Android device.

2. Play With Video Game Controllers

Android P and newer natively support the Xbox One controller. But the older Xbox 360 controller also works with Android devices via USB OTG. It's as simple as plug-and-play to start gaming with a controller. Of course, you need to play games that are compatible with a controller.

If you have rooted your Android device, you can also connect PlayStation controllers. With this, you could connect a PS2 controller and turn your Android device into a retro gaming hub!

3. Control Android With Keyboard and Mouse

Android's open nature makes it easy to connect just about anything. If you want to use your tablet as a laptop, a keyboard and mouse is integral to the experience. You'll be happy to know that Android works well with most wireless and wired keyboards and mice.

We recommend getting a wireless keyboard and mouse set with a unified receiver, since you only have one available USB connection. I haven't seen a functional USB hub working over USB OTG.

You should buy a standard plug-and-play wireless set that is compatible with all platforms. However, make sure you don't buy something that requires accompanying software, like some Logitech devices that require the SetPoint software.

As noted in our detailed guide to connecting a USB keyboard to Android devices, the OS defaults to QWERTY. You'll need a special keyboard app for other layouts, like Colemak or DVORAK.

4. Print Directly From a Printer

Much like keyboards, printers with a standard plug-and-play USB work well with Android devices. These let you start printing without requiring a wireless connection or having to transfer anything to a PC first.

Android hasn't supported USB Mass Storage mode for some time. Thus, if you want to print photos and documents, you'll need to use the PTP or MTP modes for your USB connection.

Of course, it's easier if your printer has Wi-Fi support. If it doesn't, it might be time to upgrade to one of the best printers for homes and small offices.

5. Control Your DSLR Camera

Photographers will love this one. You can wire your Android device up to your DSLR camera and turn it into a giant live screen, complete with the ability to capture, focus, control shutter speed, and much more.

You will need the DSLR Controller app, and ideally a Canon camera. It works with some Nikon and Sony cameras, but they aren't officially supported. It's a hefty $8 for the app, but quite useful for enthusiastic DSLR owners.

6. Directly Transfer Photos From DSLR to Android Phone

If you want to move photos from your digital camera to your Android, you can do it without using your laptop or SD card reader via OTG. You will need a USB cable that connects to your camera and then to the OTG adapter.

Once connected, you can import all the photos from your camera to your Android phone. It is a handy feature if you edit photos on your phone or want to share uncompressed images via email.

7. Connect and Play Music Instruments

USB OTG enables you to connect MIDI-compatible music instruments such as keyboards to your Android device. Combine the two with a decent music app, and you can create music on your handheld device on the go.

While smaller MIDI keyboards can be powered by an Android phone, some may require an external power source. Also, check the type of connection supported by your keyboard and if it requires an additional adapter to work with your OTG adapter.

8. Record Audio Directly to Your Phone

Apart from the musical instruments, you can record audio from a USB mic to your Android phone via OTG. Whether you use your phone as a workstation or just a hobbyist, USB microphones such as the useful CAD Audio 37 offer better recording capabilities than the built-in or external mics connected via a 3.5mm audio jack.

Your Android phone comes with a built-in voice recorder, but it is pretty basic. For a dedicated mic, apps like USB Audio Recorder Pro offer more customization options, including stereo playback, custom sample rate and buffer size selection and even recording format options.

9. Connect and Access the Internet via Ethernet Cable

A lesser-known OTG function is its ability to connect your Ethernet connection to an Android phone for internet access. This can come in handy if you want to reduce ping during online gameplay or get better internet speed than your Wi-Fi.

Apart from an OTG adapter, you would also need an Ethernet to USB adapter such as the QGeeM USB-C to Ethernet adapter to make this work.

Note: Ethernet connection via OTG feature may not be available on all smartphones. Make sure your phone supports this feature before attempting.

10. Reverse Charge Your Phone Android Phone

Many modern smartphones support reverse wireless charging, where you can charge a QI-compatible smartphone by placing it on the glass back of a supported smartphone. However, if your phone doesn't support this feature, you can use an OTG adapter to reverse-charge your device instead.

To reverse-charge, connect the OTG cable to the phone that will act as a power source. Then connect your phone you want to charge to the OTG port via USB cable. While the charging is slow, it should help if your primary device runs out of juice and you don't have access to a power source.

The Other Big Android USB

Learning about USB OTG and its many uses opens up a host of new tricks for Android devices. In fact, if you have an old Android tablet or phone lying around, one of the USB OTG applications above can give it a new lease of life.

Apart from OTG, there's another USB feature on Android that you should know about. If you aren't aware about it already, read up on Android USB debugging and why it's awesome.

How To: Check Your Phone for USB OTG Support to Connect Flash Drives, Control DSLRs & More

Compared to Apple's products like the iPhone and iPad, Android phones and tablets are very flexible devices. For instance, you can set a new home screen, replace the lock screen, or even beam files using NFC — but that's just the software side of things, and the flexibility goes well beyond that.

Because of a technology called USB On-The-Go (USB OTG), your Android device might even be more powerful than you thought. This allows you to connect other devices to your smartphone or tablet using a $5 adapter that plugs into your charging port, and the possibilities are almost endless. But not all phones support USB OTG, and there's a bit more to learn about the tech, so we'll cover it all below.

What Is USB OTG?

USB OTG is a hardware and software standard that allows you to connect a device to your smartphone or tablet through the USB Type-C or micro USB port. Almost anything that uses a USB connector can be plugged into your Android device with USB OTG, at which point you would be able to control the second device using your smartphone, or vice versa.

Some good example uses for USB OTG include plugging a flash drive into your phone for extra storage, connecting your phone to a DSLR camera to serve as a viewfinder or shutter button, or simply plugging a mouse or keyboard into your tablet to get a desktop-like experience.

How to Check Your Phone for USB OTG Support to Connect Flash Drives, Control DSLRs & More

To accomplish this, you'll need a special type of adapter called a USB OTG cable. These are available for less than 10 bucks, and they basically have one smaller end that plugs into your phone, with a larger end that you plug the second device into.

However, not all Android devices are compatible with USB OTG. So before you run off and buy a USB OTG adapter, I'll show you how to make sure your phone or tablet supports the standard.

Step 1: Install USB OTG Checker

To find out if your Android device supports USB OTG, start by installing a free app called USB OTG Checker.

How to Check Your Phone for USB OTG Support to Connect Flash Drives, Control DSLRs & More

Step 2: See if Your Device Supports USB OTG

Next up, simply launch the app and you'll get an instant readout on your USB OTG status. What you're hoping for here is a message saying "Android compatible USB OTG." Either way, you can learn more about your result by tapping the "Details" button.

Step 3: Purchase an OTG Adapter to Connect Other Devices

Now that you're sure your phone or tablet can take advantage of USB OTG technology, it's a safe bet to go ahead and buy a USB OTG adapter. There are two main types of OTG cables, one is powered and one is not. Most uses will not require an externally-powered USB OTG cable, so a regular OTG cable should fill all of your needs.

OTG Cables (Devices with micro USB Ports)

Here are some regular OTG cables with good reviews on Amazon for devices that have a micro USB port.

Powered OTG Cables (Devices with micro USB Ports)

If you'd like to be able to charge your phone while another device is connected to it, you'll need an externally-powered USB OTG cable. This is basically a splitter that connects to three things at the same time: Your Android device, the external device, and a power cable. If you're connecting a device that needs power to function (for instance, a Teensy programmable circuit board), externally-powered is the way to go.

OTG Cables (Devices with USB Type-C Ports)

If you own a newer Android device that uses the USB Type-C port, you should make sure to get an OTG adapter that will fit your phone or tablet. Here are some of the best options on Amazon.

What devices have you connected to your Android phone or tablet using USB OTG? Let us know in the comment section below.

Top 6 Solutions to Fix USB OTG Android Not Working

Setting up the connection between an OTG and an Android device is simple. Just connect the cable in the Micro USB slot, and attach the flash drive/peripheral at the other end. You’ll get a pop-up on your screen, and this means the setup has been done. But for some Android users, this seemingly easy process doesn’t go so smooth- for one reason or another. And this is pretty annoying, to say the least. Even after trying multiple times, they find the devices showing connection errors of “USB OTG android not working”, or worst no connected at all. 

In this article, we’re about to solve this issue- giving you a rundown of key reasons why USB OTG Android is not working and how to fix it. 

 usb otg android not working

First, Identify the Root Cause 

Well, if your struggle with the “usb otg android not working” error, the foremost thing you should do is to figure out where exactly the issue lies. Is it caused by your device or the OTG stick? To find this out, connect the OTG to some other device- a smartphone or a laptop. 

Is it working fine there? If yes, it could mean the problem is in your phone. If no, the OTG is likely to be faulty and needs to be changed. In either case, you might be looking for a solution. So here you are!

 

 

Top 6 solutions to fix USB OTG android not working

Check If Your Device Hardware Supports the USB OTG

To connect your phone with OTG USB, it’s a prerequisite that your phone supports the OTG standard. You can verify it by checking the phone hardware specs. Simply Google your phone model, and you can find various review sites giving full details of your phone’s specifications. Or contact your authorized service center and confirm if your phone’s hardware and software are suitable to get it connected with a USB OTG. 

Another option is to try some thirst parts apps which can detect your device’s compatibility with OTG standard. One such popular app is USB OTG Checker. It can scan and test your device hardware and software versions to let you know if they are suitable and capable enough to connect an OTG.

 Is Your Phone having a suitable OS version

Alongside the right hardware & drivers, your phone must have a suitable OS version for it to connect with an OTG. Remember, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 can be connected to a device supported by Android 3.1 and above. And a USB Driver works only on Android 9.0 and higher. 

Check OTG Settings

In many devices, there comes an “OTG setting” that needs to be enabled to connect the phone with external USB appliances. Usually, when you try to connect an OTG, you get an alert “Enable OTG”. 

This is when you need to turn the OTG option ON. To do this, navigate through Settings > Connected devices > OTG. Here, click on the On/Off toggle to activate it. 

Update the Apps and software

This is in a bid to cease down the possibility of some third-party app or software causing the issue. Make sure your phone software and apps are their latest versions. This trick is a ‘must-try’ if your phone used to connect to the OTG previously, and the problem has come up after installing some new apps. 

Your Default File Manager doesn’t support OTG viewer

Once you’re sure that your phone supports OTG but you still can’t access the connected device, the next best option is to install EX File Explorer and check again. A reliable and powerful file management app, EX File Explorer can most often read the connected USB without even having your phone rooted.

Root Your Device

Some Android phones can only be connected to an OTG after they are rooted. It’s because this particular phone model cannot mount external memory automatically. Here, you need to root the device and opt for some other software that has better compatibility with USB devices. But while conducting this process, do remember the below points.

  • Rooting up a device consists of some complex steps and requires perfection to get results. 
  • One wrong step can put your smartphone on risk. So try this only if you’re confident to do it right. 
  • You’ll need to install the supporting kernel. Also, a USB OTG cable will be needed. 
  • In case your device starts heating up. Stop immediately 
  • Using the OTG for a long time may also lead your phone to heat up. 

Note: If you use Infinix, TECNO or itel phone, you can take your phone to Carlcare service center near you to flash or root it

After the rooting process is completed, you can use a third party app like “USB OTG Helper” to test the process and your phone’s compatibility with the OTG. The app can also verify if the OTG is properly installed or not. 

To avoid these hassles and ensure a safe OTG installation and connection, we recommend you to opt for help from a reliable repair agency. For your TECNO, itel, and Infinix device, the Carlcare service center is the place to be. Visit your nearest Carlcare center, and get your device diagnosed by our trained technicians. They will help you figure out the issue, if any, and provide you the best solution. Since we’re the exclusive authorized service center for TECNO, itel and Infinix, and have all the modern tools and technologies at our center, the whole process will be safe and bring out the best result.
