I just learned how to use scrcpy. I successfully turned on ADB on the Android and am able to scrcpy to it from my PC. Now, I want to connect to multiple smartphones.

I notice it is a portable app, so is it a matter of duplicating multiple folders of scrcpy? Or can I connect to multiple phones from one instance of scrcpy?

If multiple devices are connected you can select the device to connect to by specify it's serial number. This is documented on the scrcpy help page. Therefore you can start one scrcpy instance per device.


If several devices are listed in adb devices, you must specify the serial:

scrcpy --serial 0123456789abcdef 
scrcpy -s 0123456789abcdef # short

To get a detailed list of devices you can execute the command

adb devices -l
  • Thank you, this solves it. My issue seems to be outside the scope of this question. I Samsung Active2 that I can ping, but actively refused on port 5555 when I try telnet nor adb connect x.x.x.x:5555. I'm doing this via wireless as well.

  • @Sun ADB via wireless is disabled by default (and AFAIR reset with every reboot). Therefore you have to connect the device via USB ADB and enable ADB wireless first.
