How to Access the OTG Function in your Amazon Fire TV and What Does It Do


In here, we will show you how to access the OTG function in your Amazon Fire TV and what exactly does it do. OTG is used to enhance the versatility of any pc or laptop you use. Amazon Fire Stick only has one port to it which is the power port. The best thing that comes when you use an OTG for the Fire Stick is that you can even attach a keyboard, mouse, or a game controller to it. It might make your desktop look like the land-of-ethernet-USB-kings, but the increased functionality makes up for it. Even a generic OTG will do the job. The OTG needs to have these three - a male micro USB plug, a female micro USB plug, and a full-sized Female USB A port. This guide is going to be a little technical. Just bear with us for your benefit.

Step 1
Purchase an OTG
You can purchase a generic OTG ‘Y’ cable on Amazon with the capacities as mentioned above. It won’t cost you much.

Step 2
Plug it to Fire Stick
You would want to take one power end of the OTG and plug it into the power port of the Fire Stick.


Step 3
Plug the charger
Plug the ‘Charger or the Power Adapter’ to the ‘Female Jack’. It will now charge the Fire Stick.

Step 4
Use the Male USB
The male USB plug can be used to attach a keyboard or a game controller, whichever you please, and use it on Amazon Fire TV. Your Fire Stick has become versatile now.

Step 5
The entire point of OTG ‘Y’ cable is to enhance the functioning of the device and right so, it is possible in your Fire Stick too. If you want a much more advanced OTG, purchase a USB Hub. It will not only allow the necessary connections but also let you attach a various device like the ethernet cable and such.
