Download & Install Android USB Drivers for All Devices

Android USB drivers are necessary for your Windows PC and Mac to connect your Android device to your computer. The USB drivers help connect your phone to your computer and perform tasks like transferring photos, adb, fastboot connection, and more. 

There are plenty of Android manufacturers, and the drivers for each may differ. The best option in such cases is to download the drivers for your device from the official manufacturer’s website. If not, we will mention some generic Android device drivers that will work on most devices.

Tinkering with your Android device through your computer is simply not possible without Android device drivers, so without any further ado, let’s get started.

So, in most cases, you will find the drivers for your Android device from the list above. If not, you need not worry because the newer version of Windows is shipped with generic ADB drivers, so you might not need to install manufacturer-specific drivers anymore. But we still recommend installing them and not relying on generic drivers for a hassle-free experience.
