It’s well-known that Android users tweaking their devices need tools like ADB. While many are using Android Debug Bridge in the form of apps, an XDA developer member has created a web-based tool to serve the same purpose. This can perform everything from APK installation to recording screen to handling file manager.

WebADB: A New Web-Based Tool For Running ABD

Android Debug Bridge is an essential tool for debugging your device. It works on anything that runs Android, like your smartphones, tablets, TVs, and even set-up boxes. It’s more like the mini development tool kit Google has embedded into Android and gives users the power of tweaking things.

While this flexibility is tried through installing various apps to date, a user named SteelToe from XDA developers has created a web-based tool for doing the same.

It’s capable of performing all the functions as installing APK files, opening up the shell to operate further, recording screen, obtaining device information, accessing file manager, etc.

It’s a go-to tool for controlling almost everything of your device. Also, you can enable ADB over WiFi here. Since web-based, this tool doesn’t need any installation or drivers and is good to go once you connect your device.

All you need is a web browser like Chrome or Edge to visit the website and start with. The developer has also made a guide to setup this ABD, and few initial instructions to use this without any problems.

Make sure you turn on the USB Debugging in your device since it’s essential to initiate the handling process. You can enable this from Settings > Developer Settings > About Phone. Tap on it seven times repeatedly to activate.
