Pi 3 Model B micro-USB slave/client or OTG?

Mon Nov 13, 2017 11:51 am

Is the micro-USB on the Pi 3 Model B capable of slave/client mode or OTG? The link here http://socialcompare.com/en/review/raspberry-pi-3 says yes, but I can't find confirmation.

(Please only provide answers relevant to the 3B, and only about the micro-USB port... I need all four host USB ports for something else, so I don't have to include a USB hub.)
Thanks

No it cannot...

The BCM283x devices only have a single USB OTG port, this is then connected to the hub and is therefore forced into host mode. The micro USB is power only
