Hello Mi Fans

Have you ever thought of using your computer USB mouse and keyboard in a different way? For say, using it on your Android smartphone.
USB Keyboard and Mouse make your typing related work really easy. You can create a report, document, and other typing related work on your pocket android device. So in this thread we'll know how to Control Your Android Smartphone With USB Keyboad and Mouse. Isn't it amazing?

For this you need three Gadget accessories to complete the Procedure
  • OTG Cable
  • USB Keyboard
  • USB Mouse

USB On-The-Go cable, often abbreviated to USB OTG or just OTG. It allows USB devices, such as Android smartphones, to act as a host, allowing other USB devices, such as USB flash drives, digital cameras, mouse or keyboards, to be attached to them.

NOTE: Before we proceed you have to make sure that your Android smartphone is supported by OTG. If you are not sure your device supports OTG or not, then I will suggest you to check your phone’s specification.
You can buy OTG Cable from any online shopping site or you can buy from mobile and gadget store.

So let's get started.

Insert OTG cable on mobile and put Keyboard USB into OTG port.

You can start typing on your android smartphone. It will help to keep your work regular without any hassle. You can also use the mouse like a keyboard. Let's check it.

Insert OTG cable on mobile and put Mouse USB into OTG port.

You can control your whole smartphone like as PC. When you connect mouse through OTG cable, it will show the cursor on your smartphone’s screen. You can drag, click and even you can use the scroll for controlling your smartphone. That's so cool!

How to use both Keyboard and Mouse on Android Smartphone.

What if you want to use both keyboard and mouse at the same time?
  • For that you have to purchase double slot OTG cable. You can get that from any mobile accessories shop.

Now your small smartphone converts into the portable laptop. You can connect it and use it anywhere.
