  • Connect an Android Device via USB.
  • Open a terminal and enter “chrome-android”.
  • Open Chrome on your device.
  • Visit localhost:9222 on your desktop machine for remote debugging.
  • Chrome Plugin

Chrome Plugin

A simpler way to perform remote debugging directly with Chrome is to install the “ADB Plugin”. It’s a Chrome Plugin/App and can be installed from the Chrome WebStore. All you need is a running Android SDK, nothing else. The ADB Plugin adds a icon to the Chrome toolbar which shows all inspectable targets on connected devices/emulators.
