Android Studio is the official integrated development environment for Google’s Android operating system, built on JetBrains’ IntelliJ IDEA software and designed specifically for Android app development. After successfully Setting up an Android project, and write down the necessary codes the next task is to run the application on an emulator or on a mobile phone to test whether the application is running fine or not. It’s very much easy to run the application on an emulator and to run the application on the mobile phone we have to connect our mobile phones with the PC via USB cables. Sometimes wire mesh creates a problem. To install or Debug the app wireless on the Physical Device, Android Studio provides a Plugin called Android Wifi ADB. Below is the step-by-step process to install the app on the mobile phone without USB cable.

Step 1: Open Android Studio and click on the Tools menu button as shown below.
