How to connect: a USB memory, a mouse or a keyboard to an Android device.
How to connect a mouse or a keyboard to an Android tablet or smartphone.
Method 1 – by an OTG cable.
The first phase you need to do, is to buy an OTG cable. This one is a cable that is 10-20 cm long having at one end an USB female plug and on the other a micro USB father jack.
After you have purchased the OTG cable, you can connect let’s say your keyboard to your Android terminal.
In your tablet or smartphone, you insert the micro USB, and in the keyboard / mouse, you insert the USB female plug. Once you have made the connection, your phone or tablet will have to react and see the mouse or the keyboard.
If you connect a mouse to your tablet or phone the screen will display a pointer. I need to say that accuracy is very high, using a mouse on a tablet is more than welcomed.
If you connect a keyboard to a smartphone or tablet, it will be functional only when the phone/tablet menu shows you that you have to write something.
Method 2 – Bluetooth
In order to not use cables, and if the tablet has Bluetooth connectivity, then we can connect a
mouse/ keyboard or gamepad to the Android tablet by this type of connection.
The first step is to activate Bluetooth on the tablet. In the instructions of the gamepad or keyboard read on how to set the pairing mode, for that device to be visible to the tablet. Once pairing mode enabled on the keyboard or gamepad we should look it up on the tablet, in the list of available devices (Bluetooth connection menu).
Then we select from the list that keyboard or gamepad and our two gadgets will be paired.
From now on we just have to use the tablet as a small computer.
