About

scrcpy (v2.3.1)

pronounced "screen copy"

This application mirrors Android devices (video and audio) connected via USB or over TCP/IP, and allows to control the device with the keyboard and the mouse of the computer. It does not require any root access. It works on Linux, Windows and macOS.

It focuses on:

  • lightness: native, displays only the device screen
  • performance: 30~120fps, depending on the device
  • quality: 1920×1080 or above
  • low latency: 35~70ms
  • low startup time: ~1 second to display the first image
  • non-intrusiveness: nothing is left installed on the Android device
  • user benefits: no account, no ads, no internet required
  • freedom: free and open source software

Its features include:

Prerequisites

The Android device requires at least API 21 (Android 5.0).

Audio forwarding is supported for API >= 30 (Android 11+).

Make sure you enabled USB debugging on your device(s).

On some devices, you also need to enable an additional option USB debugging (Security Settings) (this is an item different from USB debugging) to control it using a keyboard and mouse. Rebooting the device is necessary once this option is set.

Note that USB debugging is not required to run scrcpy in OTG mode.
