Debug Android App over WIFI in Android Studio

Most of the Android App developers uses Data Cable to Debug or Run App on Android device. Here I will explain how to avoid data cable to run the app using WIFI connection.

Step 1:

Set Static IP to your mobile. 
WIFI Setting -> Modify Network -> Advanced Option -> IP Setting -> Change DHCP to Static,  Fill IP Address for eg., DNS for eg.

Step 2:

Enable adb command

By default adb is not in your PATH This is where the shell looks for executables. You can check your current PATH with echo $PATH.

Otherwise, you should add platform-tools to your PATH, by adding the path in your shell profile.

  • Linux: ~/.bashrc
  • OS X / macOS: ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile

Add the following line there and replace the path with the one where you installed platform-tools:

export PATH=/Users/sheetalkumar/Library/Android/sdk/platform-tools:$PATH

Use the path of your system platform-tools and save the profile file, then, re-start the Terminal or run source ~/.bashrc (or whatever you just modified).

Now type adb in the terminal to test adb command is working or not.

Step 3:

Connect your device with USB and run the following commands:

adb usb

 restarting in USB mode

adb devices

List of devices attached

ZY2222KVF8 device

adb tcpip 5556

Now connect your device using device IP Address

adb connect

connected to


Now your device is ready to debug over WIFI. Remove your data cable and forget it. Enjoy wireless debugging.
