Wireless android studio

I run windows in KVM, and the QEMU android Emulator that ships with Android studio crashes all the time, so the obvious solution, with all those android devices I have is to connect a phone to android studio, It is faster and spares me the hassle of finding out why nested virtualization is so terrible

But having a phone connected via USB is not optimal, as i have to pick it up every time i want to run my under development software on it !

The answer seems to be in the

1- install Android WiFi ADB : A plugin easy to install in Android studio

2- A phone with Android 11 and above

So let us do this step by step

  1. Download SDK platform-tools and install it (Copy it somewhere and add that to your system path)
  2. Enable developer options on the phone (Keep tapping build number)
  3. From developer options, Enable wireless debugging
  4. Select Pair device with pairing code. Take note of the pairing code, IP address, and port number displayed on the device (see the above image).
  5. Open the command prompt and run the command adb pair ipaddr:port
    adb pair 192.168.7.101:45353
    Enter pairing code: xxxxxx
    daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
    daemon started successfully
    Successfully paired to 192.168.7.101:45353 [guid=adb-RF8M4xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx]
  6. Now, to have it appear as a device in android studio… Go to wireless debugging and notice the port number, then using that IP and port, use the following command
    adb connect 192.168.7.101:35127
  7. Recommended: Install the “Android WiFI ADB” plugin in android studio
