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. With an OTG cable, the device itself becomes the USB host.

You can do a lot over an OTG connection, like connecting a USB flash drive or a video game controller to your phone. Here, we’ll show you some cool ways to use it with an Android device.

Check If Your Android Supports USB OTG

The easiest way to see 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. You may also be able to find USB OTG information in the device’s settings.

Another easy method is to use a USB OTG Checker app. It will quickly tell you whether the device has USB OTG functionality and which features will work for you.
