I don't think Moto E supports OTG functionality. Given that the Moto E has external microSD support, they did not incorporate this feature in the smartphone.

Having said that, there still is a way to get an OTG to work. There's a paid app on the Play Store that would let you do just the same with some limitations.

I don't remember the name of the app, but will get back to you on this. You can alternatively search the Play Store for this app.

Moto E can support OTG cable. All you have to do is download an app named ES FILE EXPLORER from Google Play. You have to only install the app and then you can use OTG cable.

Moto E does not have a native support for OTG cable that's why you have to download the app by yourself.

Application name is "ES FILE EXPLORER".

Moto E does not support OTG. Tested by me.
You can check official site of Moto E that does listed have OTG support in its feature. Also in Youtube you can find such videos testing OTG but didn't supported.
Even if you try to connect the OTG cable it does not recognize anything it will not respond it.

All you need is OTG cable and ES File explorer. Once you connect your Moto E phone with USB via OTG cable, you will need ES File explorer to see the USB and you can start doing the required stuff.
