    Can anyone tell me how to activate the USB otg feature on the Moto e5 go??? I've had it working before on a different Moto e5 phone but can't get it to work on my new one...

    The go version may not be USB otg compatible

    OTG should be plug and play. And a quick check reveals that the e5 Go should support OTG (I'd be a bit worried if any phone these days does not).

    What OTG connections have you tried to use? Just in case it's a specific device or app that isn't working.

    The weird thing is that I had this exact same phone before and was able to use the OTG functions. I broke that phone and bought the exact same phone and can't get it to work. Mind you it wasn't as simple as plug and play, I had to use developer options to turn on USB debugging and put the USB configuration in MTP. But that isn't working now for this phone. I can't remember if I am missing an important step or if it's some glitch with this new phone?
    But I have tried using a OTG cable and a OTG card reader...neither worked.
    Thanks for the help!
