How do I connect my DisplayLink device to my Android Phone or Tablet?

DisplayLink provide an app (DisplayLink Presenter) which will enable an external screen (in mirror mode) to be connected to your Android device, using USB. This app can be found in the Google Play Store:


  • Android device (tablet or phone) running OS version Lollipop or later (5.0 or later). Kitkat (4.4) or earlier is not supported.
  • USB On The Go (OTG) enabled on the Android device
  • A USB OTG cable to connect the USB DisplayLink dock cable (USB Type A) to the Android device.
  • A DisplayLink device. All USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices are supported. If the device is USB bus powered, you may have to attach it to an externally powered USB hub first, as the Android device might not be able to provide enough power.
