While typing on a physical keyboard like the one we use with a PC is more convenient, touch typing still has some limitations. But hold on, what if your tablet or smartphone can connect to your desktop keyboard?
Indeed, you can connect a full-size physical keyboard to your Android device, and I’ll teach you how to accomplish so in this post in three different methods. Let’s investigate it.
1. Connect USB keyboard to Android Device
If your Android device supports USB OTG, you can attach a USB keyboard to it using a USB OTG (On-The-Go) adapter. It’s likely that your Android handset supports USB OTG if you purchased it within the last three years.
However, if you are dubious, you can use this programme, Simple OTG Checker, to verify it.
This appautomatically determines needed USB OTG hardwareand software API.
The USB OTG adaptor is also available online for as little as $5. UGREEN Micro USB and Ksmile USB Host are products I advise.
- Connect the keyboard to the USB connector and your phone to the micro-USB connector.
- The keyboard will automatically connect just as it connects to your PC.
- Open any app and start typing on the keyboard and the text will start appearing.

Useful YouTube Keyboard Shortcuts
You can use all the keys (Page up/Page down, etc.) and shortcuts (Ctrl+A) as you choose once it has connected correctly.
2. Connect Bluetooth keyboard Android
Today, a lot of people spend a lot of time on YouTube, whether it be for educational purposes or just to watch cats.
- Turn on Bluetooth on both devices.
- From the list of nearby Bluetooth devices, select the keyboard. If asked, provide a pin code. Usually, it s 0000 .
- The keyboard will connect and you can start typing.
3. Connect PC keyboard to Android (WiFi)
Your Android phone can also be connected to a Bluetooth keyboard, which is more practical and simpler to set up. Voici how to do it:
- Go to Settings and tap on Language & Input.
- Tap on Current keyboard option and then tap on Choose your keyboard.
- Here, enable WiFi Keyboard.
- Tap on the Current keyboard option again and choose WiFi Keyboard.
- Now, open the WiFi Keyboard app and you ll see two addresses (can also be accessed from notification bar). You can enter any of these addresses in your PC s browser window to open WiFi keyboard web interface.
You can transmit text between your PC and Android phone using an app while they are connected through Wi-Fi. When you need to type a lengthy text on your phone, this strategy is certainly helpful.
For this, I advise using the WiFi Keyboard app, which enables text transfer over a browser window. You must make it the default input method after installation.
Everything you enter in the text area of the online interface will show up on your phone. The typing was quite responsive during my tests, but there is no text preview. Thus, you must use your phone to preview the input.
Removing the keyboard after use will prevent the battery from being drained as quickly (no matter which method you use).
