Remote Debugging Android Devices – No Devices Detected

If you are trying to remote debug an Android phone, but Chrome Dev tools won’t detect the device, try this:

Download the Android SDK. Unzip it. The adb folder should be called something like “adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140702”.

Here’s how I fixed it (Windows 7).
1. Open command prompt and change directory to the adb folder. In my machine, its:
cd C:\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140321\sdk\platform-tools
2. Run adb manually:
adb.exe
3. Detect the devices:
adb.exe devices
4. Check the inspect devices screen in chrome now and you should have the connected devices listed.
Hope this helps.
