Enable OTG on Android

Enable OTG on Android


Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to enable OTG (On-The-Go) settings on your Android device:


  • Check Device Compatibility
    • Not all Android devices support OTG. So, the first step is to check if your device supports OTG. You can do this by googling your phone model or contacting the service center.


  • Access Settings
    • Go to your device’s settings. This can usually be found on your home screen or in the app drawer.


  • Navigate to OTG Settings: The location of the OTG settings can vary depending on the device. Here are some common paths:
    • For some devices, you can find it under Settings > Additional Settings > OTG Connection.
    • For others, it might be under Settings > Connected devices > OTG.
    • If you’re unable to find it, try using the search function in the settings and search for “OTG”.


  • Enable OTG: Once you’ve found the OTG setting, toggle it on.


Once OTG is enabled, you can connect a USB device, such as a pen drive or an external hard drive, to your smartphone using an OTG cable. Please note that the steps might vary slightly based on the Android version and the manufacturer of your device.
