Direct ADB command to specific device in a multi-device setting

1. Target a device by serial number

Use the -s option followed by a device name to select on which device the adb command should run. The -s options should be first in line, before the command.

adb -s <device> <command>


adb devices

adb -s emulator-5554 shell


adb devices -l

adb -s usb:1-3 shell

2. Target a device, when only one device type is connected

You can target the only running emulator with -e

adb -e <command>

Or you can target the only connected USB device with -d

adb -d <command>
