OTG is the technology that allows you to use external peripherals on your Android mobile. Thanks to it, you can connect pen drives, controllers, keyboards, mice, flashlights, among other things, to your device through its micro USB or USB-C port (with an adapter in between). The vast majority of current Android smartphones support this technology , but not all have it activated as standard.
OPPO smartphones are one of those few Android devices that come with OTG compatibility disabled at the factory . If you have an OPPO mobile and it does not recognize a USB or other peripheral that you want to connect to it, it is very likely that this problem is due to the fact that you do not have the OTG connection activated.
But don’t worry, we’ll show you how to turn on the OTG connection of your OPPO right away. It literally only takes 3 steps to get there , so join us.

The first thing you have to know is that not all OPPO phones have OTG . And it is not a feature that you can install on your device, but rather it depends on its hardware. To clear any doubts, follow this tutorial on how to know if a mobile is compatible with USB OTG.
Are you already sure that your OPPO mobile is compatible with OTG? Then do the following to enable this connection:
