OTG or USB On-the-go is a feature that allows USB devices to acts as a host when communicating with other USB devices.

Using OTG, you can also connect a hard drive with your smartphone, a controller to play games or other uses.

As a result, we recommend doing it inside of a rooted terminal if you can. This will save you from having to reconnect your phone to your computer every time. You no longer have to go back and make sure it’s enabled on your device. All the command does is change a system flag to stop your phone switching OTG off automatically.
